This is a podcast from MIT Media Lab’s Digital Currency Initiative on technology, society, and ethics called Grey Mirror (Soundcloud, Youtube, iTunes, Spotify, Overcast).

In today’s episode, I interview Caitlin Long, a 22-year Wall St. veteran and Forbes writer who leads Wyoming’s blockchain coalition. We chat about how Facebook’s new cryptocurrency, Libra, will co-evolve with Bitcoin and nation-state fiat.

Please let us know if you have any feedback or give us a review on iTunes! Also please follow mitDCI and RhysLindmark on Twitter for episode updates. Thanks!

Disclaimers: This interview is not investment advice. The views and opinions expressed in this interview are my own and do not reflect my employer :). I own less than $5000 of any given cryptocurrency, so my monetary incentive is not too aligned with Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.
