This week for the Bitcoin Magazine Podcast we have a replay of last week's interview between Adam Back and Pete Rizzo on Satoshi's legacy. Adam Back the co founder and CEO of Blockstream and the investor of Proof of Work.
Adam reflects on discovering Bitcoin and searching for the best information in the early days. He worked hard to understand the technical components as well as all of Satoshi's writing about Bitcoin.
Adam is not a fan or over glorifying Satoshi or quoting Satoshi quotes. Adam thinks it is important for individuals to learn from Satoshi's thinking but to define Bitcoin based on the product and network itself.
Dr. Back and Rizzo reflect on the difference between the stated intent of the bitcoin project, what is actually being built, and how Satoshi contributed to that ethos. Enjoy this wide ranging conversation on Satoshi's Authority, Influence, and legacy.
