Is Bitcoin Compatible with Democracy?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We have seen how pro-democracy activists in Belarus, Russia, and Togo have turned to Bitcoin to keep their advocacy afloat when their bank accounts get shut down. Simultaneously, we have also seen how a populist leader has imposed Bitcoin on El Salvador from the top down. Hear from activists from all three countries about whether Bitcoin is compatible with liberal democracy.
