Cryptographer David Chaum | Layer Zero
In 1985, David issued this warning to the public:
Computerization is robbing individuals of the ability to monitor and control the ways information about them is used. Already, public and private sector organizations acquire extensive personal information and exchange it amongst themselves… The automation of payment and other consumer transactions is expanding these dangers to an unprecedented extent.
In today’s surveillance capitalism, it’s clear that we need cryptography now more than ever.
