Episode 6: Libertarian Talk with Bitcoin Purist Tone Vays

Joining us this week on Consensus Network is Tone Vays.

Like many ex-wall street guys, Tone came to cryptocurrency after the fallout of 2008. We had an in-depth conversation on the libertarian aspect of cryptocurrency and its fundamental impact on the world, not only financially but also culturally. 

Tone is also a firm believer in Bitcoin - but not so much in other projects, and he has some sound reasoning behind his belief so make sure to check out this week's episode of Consensus Network.
