24 - Exploring the Frontier | Erik Voorhees

Discussing the Bankless journey, self-sovereign money, and more with one of cryptos original settlers
Aug 3, 20201 min read

Erik's been journeying into the bankless frontier since 2011. That's when he first discovered bitcoin.

The open road. The unsettled whitespace. The westward trail. The highway to freedom. That's why he's here.

And he's remained true to his values.

That's why he speaks out against tyranny. That's why he embraces self-sovereign money and pokes holes in the myths of fiat. That's why he so ardently rejects maximalism.

Enjoy our conversation with one of cryptos original settlers.
