This episode we are joined with Nick BFG to take an introductory look into bitcoins, the blockchain, cryptography, cryptocurrency, and fiat ($, £, €, ¥) on a fundamental level, and how it connects to the ten principles of burning man as well as how it relates to our burn community.

This will be a multi-part series of discussions on the "internet of money" (or digital gold), financial markets (GFC), macroeconomics, governments, decentralised networks, open source, exponential moving technologies, and the burning ethos.

Nick BFG is a head coach at Taurus Institute:
