Vitalik Buterin – Organized Crime & the Future of Crypto

In this Portal podcast clip, Eric Weinstein and Vitalik Buterin discuss the future of cryptocurrencies and their potential role in organized crime.

Quotes from this video:

“If you create a group that just goes fundamentally against the vast majority of people’s values, then it’s just going to be hard to find volunteer effort for that sort of thing.”

“Blockchains are a fundamentally programmatic medium. All they see is the data that gets fed into them and what they can compute as a result of that data.”
