Decentralizing Defection: How Bitcoin Circumvents Tyranny


This is an opinion editorial by Kyle Schneps, director of public policy at Foundry, a Digital Currency Group company.

The legacy Cold War system of defection rewarded the elite few who chose to publicly opt out of authoritarian regimes in favor of Western democracies.

Walking through the labyrinthine hallways of the CIA’s headquarters late at night during the 1960s, you would eventually notice a wedge of faint smokey light as you passed one particular office suite on the top floor. Following the trail of light and peering inside, you would see a gaunt bespectacled man hunched over countless volumes of poetry and stacks of human intelligence case files.
