Alex Gladstein, leader of the Human Rights Foundation had a speech at the recent blockchain conference in LATAM. They told the audience, in our era, with the growing surveillance and shrinking privacy, the bitcoin is a “human rights defense system”. In some countries, the rulers try to attempt so high level of monitoring of the citizens, what will make Orwell’s 1984 as light fiction.
Bitcoin, on the other hand, couldn’t be banned so easily, and governments can’t censoring it or shutting down. During the Enlightenment, the church and the state had been separated, which catalyzed the biggest progress in mankind’s history. The BTC could separate the money and the state, raising the financial security, and general human well-being.
