Peter McCormack on a Defiant New Era for Bitcoin

Why the narrative of 2019 was protest and dissent and why 2020 will see bloodletting in the alt markets.

Updated Sep 13, 2021 at 11:52 a.m. UTC

Peter McCormack is one of the most prominent podcasters in the space. In 2019, he added a new podcast called “Defiance” and focused on the intersection of bitcoin, human rights, and political activism to complement his “What Bitcoin Did” podcast.

In this special end of year episode of The Breakdown, Peter discusses why the past year represents an inflection point for citizen action and sovereign protest around the world, and why 2020 is likely to see a continued bloodletting among non-bitcoin cryptoassets.
