Market and peace advocates have been granted a tool of unimaginable power for the subversion of the state. Bitcoin, as the most popular free-market currency in the world, is a profound apparatus for wresting power from the maniacs who seek to control you. This panel discussion will cover the top methods by which you can free yourself and subvert the tyrants.

Erik Voorhees – A writer, entrepreneur, and armchair economist, Erik Voorhees (originally from Colorado) moved from Dubai to join the Free State Project in New Hampshire in 2011 in order to advance the cause of liberty. While there, he discovered Bitcoin and accidentally fell down the rabbit hole. Bitcoin has now become his hobby, his activism, and his career, believing the new currency to be the greatest tool for global liberty since the internet itself. Erik is a well-known member of the Bitcoin community forum (screen name- evoorhees), and is CEO of Coinapult, based in Panama City. Furthermore, Erik is also a partner in a couple top-secret super-subversive Bitcoin-based projects and coordinates the Free State Bitcoin Consortium group among liberty activists in New Hampshire.

- Activist, entrepreneur, freelance Videographer/Editor. Having been involved with a few alternative currency models revolving around silver and gold, it wasn’t hard to see bitcoin’s potential to challenge state run banking. After looking around the bitcoin space for a place to jump in, it made sense to start a coalition of bitcoin users with a Voluntaryist / libertarian perspective. Bitcoin will face many challenges in the next few years if it is to become a successful global currency, and due to the decentralized nature of the bitcoin protocol, it has the potential to overcome the biggest and most violent challenge faced by alternative currencies: the state.
