Often we hear that money is a social phenomenon but after lifetimes of centralized control and management of monetary systems, it’s hard to get our minds out of the nutshell. On this short interview, Vitalik Buterin tells not just how he got into the crypto space but shows that rebuilding a financial system is not a utopian idea, but actually, reinforces the idea that money is something a community can create and manage whenever they want. How can communities reinvent the way of value exchange and why could this benefit us all?
Good interview by Vice. I met Vitalik at the New York Bitcoin Center in 2014. It’s amazing the smart people in this space working on vary ambitious projects that will create so many new opportunities for people who have missed out on previous opportunities.
