Show Notes

Do crytpocurrencies and blockchain technology figure substantially in the possibility of financial freedom for those who currently are lacking in wealth? Or does the hype really just indicate that all things crypto are based on a speculative bubble and Ponzi schemes? Prof. Sebastian Purcell (SUNY, Cortland) discusses the legal, technological, and philosophical novelties behind cryptocurrencies that can potentially transform our lives for the better. He also weaves in how Aztec philosophy can help us think through what it means to have a rooted life.
