The Killer App | Bananas on the Blockchain?
In this talk, Andreas points to the killer apps in the open blockchain ecosystem: sound money and governance. He also addresses arguments by finance tycoons that they "don't need cryptocurrencies" as fundamentally elitist, failing to consider the broader needs of the other six billion (or even their butlers).
This talk was delivered for the Coinscrum meetup on June 13th 2019 at Monzo Bank HQ in London: https://www.coinscrum.com/event/coinscrum-presents-andreas-antonopoulos/
