We are back, and we open this new season with an outstanding guest: Jon Matonis! A legend of the crypto-world (and you’ll know why by the end of this episode): he’s the Chief Economist at Cypherpunk Holdings, a Forbes and Coindesk recurrent author, and the Founding and Executive Director of the Bitcoin Foundation.

This episode explores Jon’s story as well as the story of digital cryptography: starting from encrypted email, to Verisign, Digicash, eGold, and the work of the Bitcoin Foundation. We also discuss themes such as financial privacy and its importance to economic and political freedom, the Crypto Arms Race, the end game for Bitcoin, and the three primary functions of money.
