One thought on “Bitcoins and Altcoins: Privacy in a decentralised world

  1. Great talk Vikram, and glad it was recorded – maybe place it in a blockchain to prove it happened (tho’ I think YouTube is good enough validation).

    The global banking system is seriously losing trust at the moment (think HSBC and 20+ trillion dollars in offshore accounts) – there is fraud* on a massive scale that makes any of the bitcoin and altcoin scams small beer by comparison (* whether stashing hundreds of millions of dollars in offshore accounts is fraud or just “aggressive accounting” there has been a huge theft of wealth by the financial elite).

    My point is that the financial industry as a whole faces a loss of trust, and it may only take a few more scandals for the bitcoin to move beyond early adopters and into the mainstream.
