Cryptocurrency for Newbies: The Evolution of Money

Ryan Oelke Free, Integral Live, Money, Perspectives, The Daily Evolver, Video, World Affairs 2 Comments

In this very special episode we take a close look at one of the most exciting and disruptive new technological forces in society: the rise of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies. We are joined by our good friend Ryan Oelke, founder of PowerUp Productions and author of a wonderful new book, Cryptocurrency for Newbies — an invaluable resource if you are looking to wrap your head around this dauntingly complex topic.

One thing becomes clear through this discussion: the emergence of blockchain (and similar technologies) represents a radical new evolution of money, and offers far-reaching potentials for renewed optimism, decentralized innovations, post-national solutions, and brand new strategies of self-organization to help us meet the many challenges the 21st century.
