17 – A Bankless Nation (Part 1)

Episode: #17 – A Bankless Nation (Part 1)
June 15th, 2020

An alien visits earth. He sees our cities, our governments, our moral codes. He’s curious, ”What’s are you trying to do here?” he asks the humans.

The humans respond: ”We’re trying to get coordinated”.

Coordination is how humanity rose above the animals. Built the pyramids. Put a man on the moon.

We’ve coordinated as hunter-gather societies in tribes. As agrarian societies in kingdoms. As industrial societies in nation states.

And now…as information societies in digital nations like Ethereum and Bitcoin. This. Changes. Everything.
