Nic Carter is a Bitcoiner with a financial and philosophical background. I wanted to have him on the show for a long time. He is thoughtful and interesting to talk to as you will hear. We touch on some of his favourite topics like Bitcoin metaphysics, crypto-dollarization, historical references to free banking and the future of privacy and surveillance in the digital era.
