About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  1. Great presentation, explaining the relationship between “human rights” and
    personal and property rights–and how all can be safeguarded by using
    bitcoin protocol. A good primer on the basics of property rights, echoing
    the property rights ideas of John Locke and Murray Rothbard.



  3. I am not against government. I am against the freedom they have with our
    money. If there is a system where politicians will be having to convince
    that his project is good for society then the people will be liberating,
    through votes, the money they need as it develops then I think those men
    with guns will not have a leash on us and will only do what consensus
    dictates… unlike it is today..

  4. This is the true future of the money and it is not the improvement of money
    The question is how to make it work faster and accurate ?? 

  5. Is nobody else suspicious that the global corpo-fascist government invented
    this pseudo-anonymous global currency that assigns a personal I.D
    verification system to all of your electronic devices, in essence creating
    the largest surveillance and control grid in history? This, like the
    internet itself has DARPA written all over it… might as well call it
