Show Notes

"So, there's a lot of ways I think you can be decentralized or have decentralized values. A good analogy right now is that most finance is very centralized. For example, you have to go to a bank, have a bank account, and there are a few people that permit you to access your own funds or for getting loans out, getting a mortgage, or anything along those lines.

Similar to how a government is centralized in many ways in their authority. They do have decentralized offices and banks can have decentralized offices. But the idea of decentralization and cryptocurrency from my perspective is about increasing the spread of the nodes. Instead of having maybe 10 big banks in the city, you've got 10,000 people that each is running their own nodes, and each person operating their own bank. So, it's pushing decentralization out much, much further."
