Politeia Digest #13
Politeia Digest #12

In this episode I talk to Marco Peereboom, Hacker, Decred new systems development lead and CTO of company zero about the Decred project and how it aims to upend the fiat paradigm and become a global currency. Decred is a hybrid proof of work/proof of stake system that makes forking and 51% attacks nearly impossible and adds a layer of governance that's missing from Bitcoin. A very intriguing project.

We call our system for storing governance data Politeia, which is based on the ancient Greek term, meaning ?a system of government?.
