The Coin Telegraph: As you mentioned in Liberty.me’s IndieGoGo campaign, the wants of liberty-minded people have finally found a convergence point with available technology.

From Skeptic to Evangelist: Economist Jeffrey Tucker on the Bits of Freedom

Bitcoin evangelist Jeffrey Tucker was not always a believer. The highly-trained economist, hailing from fellowships at the Mises Institute and the Acton Institute, initially struggled with how a non-tangible item could possibly qualify as money, much less “sound money.” But Bitcoin’s persistence as a medium of exchange kept Tucker on a fiery path of research which eventually lead to a crypto-romance that everyone in the libertarian world is familiar with.

A Word from Jeffrey Tucker: Bitcoin Is Not a Monetary System

Libertarian leader Jeffrey Tucker, CEO of Liberty.me and publisher of Laissez Faire Books, shared with Bitcoin Magazine his views on how Bitcoin is NOT a monetary system. Bitcoin Is Not a Monetary System. By Jeffrey Tucker. Every since I started writing about cryptocurrency last Spring, my inbox has become a hub for Bitcoin questions. I completely understand - even to me it's still the most implausible idea ever that some code-slinging, nameless geek somewhere could somehow invent a new currency made from 1s and 0s, throw it out there on an open forum, and (in a mere five years), it would....
