Block009 - Discussing A Cypherpunk’s Manifesto by Eric Hughes
"Cypherpunks write code. We know that someone has to write software to defend privacy, and since we can't get privacy unless we all do, we're going to write it. We publish our code so that our fellow Cypherpunks may practice and play with it. Our code is free for all to use, worldwide. We don't much care if you don't approve of the software we write. We know that software can't be destroyed and that a widely dispersed system can't be shut down."
In Block009 of The Bitcoin Journey, Tim & CJ discuss A Cypherpunk's Manifesto by Eric Hughes, written in March 1993. The manifesto which is very relevant today covers the core principles of the Cypherpunk movement and why what they do is so important.
Tim and CJ discuss:
What privacy and secrecy are and their differences.
The role of privacy in the modern world
Privacy when purchasing and transacting bitcoin
The legality of using privacy preserving technologies (it's fully legal!)
The manifesto is a must read for all Bitcoiner's to understand more about the people and movement who created and continue to maintain the protocol.
