$50,000 BTC!!! Decentralization! Crypto is the future! Sovereign money! But, what if it isn’t the future? What if we never see all time highs for bitcoin again. What if it was all a destined for failure technology? David Gerard is in that camp. He sees nothing but scams, misplaced technology beliefs, and hopeful people waiting to get robbed.

We talk a lot about cryptocurrency. We talk about how it work. But, what if it needs to be changed? What if it needs to be updated to work better? Who makes that decision? The simple answer is…. There is no simple answer. There are many many ways for a blockchain to be changed. Some blockchains are at the mercy of hash power. Some are at the mercy of the people with the most stake. And some fall under a corporate dictatorship. These are all forms of governance. In this episode Ryan Taylor talk about the different forms of governance and how they are used to make changes to your favorite blockchains.
