Show support appreciated: 35iDYDYqRdN2x6KGcpdV2W1Hy3AjGje9oL Matthew and Fernando interview Dr. Stuart Haber & Dr. Scott Stornetta, authors of the seminal cryptographic 1991 paper “How to time-stamp a digital document,” a key part of the technological inspiration for Bitcoin, and as a result they share 3 of the 8 references in Satoshi Nakamoto’s “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” white paper. We discuss their early days in cryptography, their background, and what led them to author their important time-stamping idea, and why trust and document provenance must be distributed. We spend some time discussing their latest thinking on what makes an immutable ledger, the lingering dangers in cryptography, and how distributed consensus in many ways is a completely separate field from public key cryptography. We also discuss the importance of privacy, in light of recent mainstream, large corporate hacks of personal data, the latest victim being Capital One and its clients. Listen on to learn more.
