17-4-14 Sex Worker Privacy
Hey Gang, Sorry I’ve been away for so long, but spent the summer moving half-way across the country…literally. If you’re in the Washington, DC area and you’re interested privacy or cryptocurrencies (like Bitcoin, Dash, or Monero), then contact me at email@example.com or on Twitter @CrypTecSolution because I’d love to hangout with like-minded people.

I had to did edit out some of the worst bits, but thankfully those were mostly during moments of casual conversation and not during Maggie’s actual answers. There are some sections of poor audio quality that I left in because I feel that it’s good enough for you to still follow the conversation, and they were just too important to cut out. The final edit of the interview is about 35 minutes long, and it think you will find it extremely interesting. During that short time, Maggie points out quite a few things about privacy in the sex industry that are not intuitively obvious as well as raising several challenges that sex workers and their customers face regarding digital and financial privacy. To my surprise, Maggie was extremely skeptical that encryption tools or digital currencies, like Bitcoin, could actually help alleviate any of those problems. In her opinion, all the tools available are work-arounds that are either
