Crypto-Week, Part 1: An Introduction to Crypto-Currencies and Encryption (LUA Podcast #7, 12/4/16)


On this podcast, we introduce a series that will run in the month of December. In part one, I provide my history and experience with crypto-currencies and encryption and cover a couple of articles that demonstrate the State’s hatred of these technologies.

In part two, Jason joins me and asks some questions about how to get started using crypto-currencies. As an amateur end-user, I inform you on what I believe to be the best, and most anonymous path to acquiring and exchanging them.
