Most of his presentation was a review with historical overtones and concepts, noting that when Bitcoin emerged, it was a political statement to the establishment about what had happened to the financial system.

Then he tried to do an analysis, analyzing the promises of these new technologies and contrasting them with what had happened in the past decade. With that in mind, he emphasized that there was a promise of freedom.

“”The promise made by the Bitcoin network was to minimize trust”He said in another moment of the conversation. He also highlighted another trait: “Relying less and less on human subjectivity and more relying on systems.” Then he mentioned that another promise was automation and cost reduction.

In another overview, he contrasted the different properties of different blockchains that have emerged in recent years with their own particularities. And he spoke of the potential of these new disruptive technologies.
