The Control

A newsletter on the entrepreneurs, projects and protocols that are putting control of power in the hands of the people.

It’s been an interesting start to the year for blockchains. While most of the attention has been on the price of BTC and other blockchain assets, I believe the people behind the protocols are far more important and interesting. 
With that in mind, I recently chatted with Dr. Adam Back, Blockstream co-founder/CEO and inventor of Hashcash, a predecessor to Bitcoin. We had an interesting discussion about Blockstream, Bitcoin protocol development and governance, open-source processes and scaling the Bitcoin blockchain, among other things. Check out that discussion here.
