Join us as we tackle these thought-provoking questions and uncover the implications of deferring authority within the realm of digital transactions. Discover the power of self-empowerment and the balance between risk, reward, and responsibility as we venture into the world of blockchain and distributed ledger technology.

We continue our journey by delving into the complexities of sovereignty, dependency, and responsibility as they pertain to the ownership and stewardship of material possessions. Listen in as we explore scenarios of entrusting others with our assets, and how true sovereignty means maintaining responsibility even when deferring authority. We also discuss the idea of revoking delegated authority as a means to retain our freedom and the potential consequences of not doing so.

Lastly, we turn our attention to tech giants like OpenAI and their responsibility to ensure the common good. We discuss the need for OpenAI to set the standard for transitioning their assets back to the people, while still incentivizing innovation and training for their models. Learn how collaboration and building upon existing work can ensure that everyone benefits from the collective commons, and explore the increasing prevalence of self-sovereignty in the realm of data and identity.
