Real interviews for real bitcoiners.

Warning: this show contains critical thinking and real conversations with real bitcoiners. Both the host and the guests are not afraid of being critical, they constantly express the unpopular opinions that others don't even dare to utter, but in the end still conclude that Bitcoin is still the best money system humanity has ever had. It's going to take over the world, but we must ensure we use all the best practices of sovereignty and self custody. If you do proceed in spite of this warning, you will have a lot to learn from genuine people who use Bitcoin all around the world. While Bitcoin's financial, social and political takeover happens, you can learn more about it on the Bitcoin Takeover Podcast!

S10 E8: Harry Halpin on Nym, Mixnets, Tor, and Rediscovering Forgotten Cypherpunk Inventions


Harry Halpin is a privacy lover and freedom advocate who embarked on an ambitious journey to create a better Tor, which is actually decentralized and provides incentives. The name of his project is Nym & it makes use of mixnets to prevent traffic analysis. In this episode, Harry Halpin talks about the meaning and scope of privacy in the digital age, why the Nym project accepted a financial grant from the European Commission, why Nym provides better data anonymization than Tor, and how several cypherpunk ideas get rediscovered years later in order to fix contemporary problems.
