Edward Snowden set to discuss his use of Bitcoin in the NSA leaks at BlockDown conference |
Edward Snowden is coming to New Zealand. He will be speaking at the BlockDown conference in Auckland on September 26th, 2018 and he will discuss his use of Bitcoin during the NSA leaks. This could be a sign for future higher adoption rates for cryptocurrency as well as other uses such as digital cash (Zcash).
The “what is one bitcoin worth” is a question that has been asked before. Edward Snowden will be discussing his use of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the NSA leaks at the BlockDown conference.
Edward Snowden will speak at BlockDown: DeData on Friday, a virtual conference devoted to the difficulties and alternatives of ownership and permission in this new age of data as the most valuable commodity.
The former American computer intelligence consultant will participate in a sixty-minute fireside chat about the importance of web3, data privacy, and surveillance capitalism in our increasingly digital world. He is best known for leaking highly classified information from the National Security Agency in 2013 while working as a subcontractor for the Central Intelligence Agency.
Snowden, a proponent of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, claimed last week that he used Bitcoin to conceal his identity while purchasing the servers that enabled the NSA disclosures.
“Do you remember the full NSA story from almost TEN YEARS AGO?” In a tweet, he stated, “I paid for the servers that made it possible… using Bitcoin.”
Snowden’s disclosures in 2013 revealed a vast worldwide monitoring network.
With the cooperation of telecommunication companies and European governments, the US and the Five Eyes Intelligence Alliance (UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand) conducted programs that prompted a global discussion about individual rights, privacy, and government monitoring and abuse of personal data, which prompted a global discussion about individual rights, privacy, and government monitoring and abuse of personal data.
Snowden will be joined by privacy and security experts, corporate executives, and academics, including David Chaum, the “godfather of privacy” and creator of digital money.
The BlockDown Conference was first held in March of 2020, and it is now gearing up for its five edition, which will take place on December 3rd from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. CET.
Experts and researchers from across the blockchain and crypto sector will gather for this one-day, eight-hour special conference to address data ownership, privacy, Web3, personal information security, and self-governance in depth via panels, keynotes, fireside chats, debates, and more.
In a future where everyone is a digital citizen, BlockDown DeData attempts to educate the public on the use and misuse of data. Security breaches and data manipulation may now be strong enough to put whole nations at danger, disable big institutions, alter our perceptions of the world, and even sway the outcome of political elections.
The event will educate, inspire, and make people aware of the value of data in this period, according to Erhan Korhaliller, CEO of prominent Web3 PR agency EAK Digital and creator of BlockDown.
Individuals regain control of their data through “DeData.” We are excited to welcome visitors to Blockdown so they may learn more about Decentralized Data and the various benefits and current options for taking ownership of your data. “If your crypto generates profits, why shouldn’t your data?”
BlockDown DeData will be televised as usual across leading crypto media outlets like as, Theta.tv, NewsBTC, CryptoNews, Bitcoinist, and CriptoNoticias, allowing millions of users to watch it on their own home pages.
Previous BlockDown editions have attracted some of the industry’s top stars, including Akon, CZ, Charles Hoskinson, Erik Voorhees, Sergey Nazarov, Roger Ver, and Nicholas Merten from DataDash, who have all given positive comments.
On Friday, December 3rd, BlockDown Presents: DeData will take place. Visit https://blockdownconf.com for additional information and to buy tickets, or contact [email protected] for further information.
