Expanding on an observation from his last talk, Andreas asks why we talk so much about the cartels in drugs and oil, but rarely about one of the largest cartels in the world: banking. He analyses recent (unacknowledged) history with the 2008 financial crisis, the corrupt revolving door with regulators, how kleptocracy is destroying democracy, and why Bitcoin matters as an exit when voice is no longer an option. This talk took place on November 10th 2018 as part of the 'Internet of Money' tour at the Edmonds Center for the Arts near Seattle, Washington: https://antonopoulos.com/event/the-internet-of-money-tour-seattle/ RELATED: Worse Than Useless: Financial Surveillance - https://youtu.be/n4F-h4xuXMk Money as a System-of-Control - https://youtu.be/FyK4P7ZdOK8 The Stories We Tell About Money - https://youtu.be/ONvg9SbauMg Measuring Success: Price or Principle - https://youtu.be/mPMsbgWl9p4 Bitcoin's Origins and the Genesis Blockade - https://youtu.be/cagoyF3WePo Why Open Blockchains Matter - https://youtu.be/uZPIz3ArQww Decentralised Globalisation - https://youtu.be/QoiR4aNbTOw Investing in Education instead of Speculation - https://youtu.be/6uXAbJQoZlE Security vs. Complexity - https://youtu.be/M82t5wZG3fc Beyond Price: Bitcoin's Impact on the Future - https://youtu.be/rvwVbRQ5Ysc Why I'm against ETFs - https://youtu.be/KSv0J4bfBCc Regulation and the bank boycott - https://youtu.be/8ypH69Cb1l0 Wallet design and mass adoption - https://youtu.be/WbZX6BDZJHc Mass adoption and peer-to-peer commerce - https://youtu.be/n9qIAEFS-Qs Scaling strategies and adoption - https://youtu.be/dML1a_Ek9Kw Price volatility and store of value - https://youtu.be/wzzZT95ijTo Why I earn bitcoin instead of buying - https://youtu.be/Ci7TyD8jETY Job opportunities with cryptocurrencies - https://youtu.be/89_p4pDlQtI Inspiring cryptocurrency projects - https://youtu.be/WW8norCKUbE From barter to abstract money - https://youtu.be/KYsppZoHguQ Crossing the chasm of theoretical vs. real need - https://youtu.be/yIR0OBEAaUE Remittances and smuggling in Venezuela - https://youtu.be/RRXecXfWARw How long until mainstream adoption? - https://youtu.be/y3cKBDBabtA What is the biggest adoption hurdle? - https://youtu.be/jHgyHF3F2TI Bitcoin as everyday currency - https://youtu.be/xYvvSV4mjH0 How to avoid re-creating systems of control - https://youtu.be/EfoGnDoaBL8 Hyperbitcoinization - https://youtu.be/AB5MU5fXKfo Andreas M.
