Max Raskin, Research Fellow at the Institute for Judicial Administration at NYU Law, explains the theory and logic behind Bitcoin, what Bitcoins can be used for, and how Bitcoin has transformed our understanding of currency.
Future videos on this topic will discuss Bitcoin’s mining process and various legal issues that surround the currency.
As always, the Federalist Society takes no position on particular legal or public policy issues; all expressions of opinion are those of the speaker.
