Guests: Mike Kelly (@mikekelly85) Hasu (@hasufl) Host: Richard Yan (@gentso09) Today’s motion is “Nation-state attack on the bitcoin network is an unresolved ticking time bomb.” In this thorough and fascinating debate, we covered these topics: The motivations of nationstate attacks The mechanisms of nationstate attacks The aftermath of nationstate attacks The preventive mechanism of nationstate attacks The idea for this debate was born out of a twitter discussion, where someone posted a video of Andreas Antonopoulos dismissing the threat on bitcoin from nationstates. Now, while you’re here, be sure to also check out our previous episodes too. We’ve featured some of the best known thinkers in the crypto space. And it was great to have a few no-coiners on. I always appreciate their agreeing to do the show, and adding perspectives to what sometimes seem like an echo chamber.
