The 9pm Autumn Series 2021 continues with blockchain and crypotocurrency realist David Gerard, author of Attack of the 50 Foot Blockchain and Libra Shrugged: How Facebook Tried to Take Over the Money.

We talk about Bitcoin, of course, as well as cryptocurrency and blockchain technology more generally, Facebook’s plan to reinvent money, anarcho-capitalism, money laundering, market manipulation, Elon Musk, Philomena Cunk, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the nature of money, and even the nature of art.
