Re: <nettime> Bitcoin, the end of the Taboo on Money


Jaromil (& Nettime),

What I fail to understand is why you consider this a political gain
(to quote your paper):

"The Bitcoin dream is the autonomy of content producers, to
exchange their production freely, without aggregations, without
intermediaries."

This is hardcore libertarianism, since it means the abolishment of
taxes as a source of funding public services - and making sure that
financial transactions can never be taxed.
