[liberationtech] Bitcoin and The Public Function of Money

Hey Yosem, pretty sure the thread has run its course at this point. But in any case we can't get the tech part right if we don't get the liberation part right. 

The user stories for liberation tech must certainly derive from visions of liberation, or? 

Especially when the tech in question is economic in nature, such as Bitcoin. 

And economics is a technology every but as much as cryptography.

Thanks all,

Yosem

"Free trade" relates to tariffs and  (import/export) quota, in other
words overcoming geographical market segmentation.

Best,
