A Cypherpunk Dream and Privacy on Blockchain


It’s safe to say that Bitcoin was born out of The Cypherpunks Movement where they were hyper-concerned about privacy. When we think about the genesis of Bitcoin, it’s sobering to think that many of us are still advocating the use of a public and easily traceable ledger.

This time, we will talk about the genesis of bitcoin, why privacy matters on blockchain and some of the cryptographic methods to protect our privacy on blockchain.
