Bitcoin and US Dollar Financial Imperialism

For this week's interview, I spoke with Murtaza Hussain (@MazMHussain), reporter at The Intercept focused on Foreign Policy with an interest in cryptocurrency. The past year Murtaza has been researching and learning more about cryptocurrencies specifically because of the its anti-imperial potential. During the interview we spoke about how the United States specifically uses US Dollar hegemony as a weapon against countries that don't conform to its desires, the implications of countries sanctioned by the United States using bitcoin as a tool for subverting the sanctions, and how silly it is for some on the left to completely disregard the potential of cryptocurrencies for anti-imperialism and developing alternatives to the big banks that caused the Great Recession.
