A recent episode of USA’s Mr. Robot featured a tense battle between two dystopian crypto theologies. On one side, there was Bitcoin, with its privacy- and freedom-loving followers. And on the other side, corporate tycoons aimed to create a predatory cryptocurrency, eCoin.
The TV show is fictional, of course, but could this scenario really happen? Today’s podcast is all about that possibility.
We already know that giant corporations like Google (http://ymb.tc/e65) and Facebook (http://ymb.tc/e130) are watching our every move. And they’re probably in bed with the government too. So are we worried that they might make some sort of faux-crypto? Will they get the sheeple hooked on their own digital currency so they can watch us even more? Has this already happened?
Tune in to learn about these crypto-apocalyptic ideas! Your hosts are Daniel Brown, Tim Baker, and John Stuart. Enjoy!
Leave a comment and tell us if you think a corporate cryptocurrency could take over the world!
