How to Kill Bitcoin by Saifedean Ammous at Baltic Honeybadger 2019

How to kill Bitcoin may seem like a strange subject to cover on the GiveBitcoin blog, but as Dr. Saifedean Ammous highlights in his presentation, sometimes a helpful way to learn about a topic is to think adversarially.

For those of you who are new Bitcoiners, Saifedean is the author of “The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking” which is available in our merch store and we highly recommend reading it.

In this presentation from the Baltic Honeybadger 2019 conference, Saifedean goes over the biggest threats to Bitcoin and how they may or may not succeed.
