Just recently Snowden was granted the Thomas Szasz Award from the Facility for Independent Idea, which existed to him by my employer John Stossel. During the call I was able to ask Snowden regarding Bitcoin and also the need for anonymous electronic repayments.
Bitcoin played a vital duty in the 2013 Snowden leakages: the servers that Snowden made use of to move information to journalists were paid for utilizing bitcoin, since he really did not want those documents linked to his name.
Snowden explained to me that Bitcoin is exceptional to bank card, because it’s at the very least pseudonymous. Yet steps need to be taken to add privacy.
He once tweeted: „Bitcoin is terrific, yet „if it’s public, it’s not secure,““ and he claimed that Zcash’s personal privacy tech makes it one of the most intriguing Bitcoin option.
I asked him about all of this when we spoke.
