Trust Machine

“It (blockchain) gives you an actual power to affect change in the world. And it's gonna scare the shit out of some very powerful people."
Lauri Love
“It is true that these technologies do represent a threat to them. If they have done their research, then they will pretty quickly figure out that these are probably going to disrupt their business models.”
Laura Shin
“The token is an electronic version of that existence trail. Being able to count something that we know is happening, being able to count it in an authentic and auditable way, and be able to do that  publicly. It's an accounting tool. It's a ledger, but if we can reduce the pain points on the poorest people, we give them a little bit more time in their life. And time is the most valuable thing any of us have.”
Christopher Fabian
