About this Episode

TODAY'S 🎙SHOW: Douglas Tuman interviews Zelenar XY, a writer, crypto veteran, developer and author of the recently released book “The right to transact”.

The two discuss Zelenar’s journey into crypto, how he came about to writing his book, why the right to transact is as important if not more important than other rights in the Constitution, will people wake up when CBDCs arrive and how bad does it have to get for people to understand that the right to transact is important?

They also talk about different governments around the world trying to implement CBDCs and which regions have a higher risk of implementing it. They then discuss Monero vs Bitcoin in terms of censorship resistance and why the tech behind Monero is better at resisting state censorship and surveillance.
