Intro by Tell No Lies.
This is a very provocative development, an open source non-trackable digital currency independent of any nation state. The video is long, (a little more than an hour) but utterly fascinating. (Fast Forward to 0:07:15). The revolutionary implications of this just keep coming out as the program progresses. Even if Bitcoin itself doesn't take off, the idea itself is so irrepressibly subversive that I suspect something like it will eventually establish itself and quite possibly powerfully upset the global financial order. It is, at any rate, something revolutionaries should be aware of and be discussing.
