Bitcoin is seriously cool technology with the potential to transform the financial industry — and any other industry that needs trusted transactions. Marco Santori talks with Aaron about what Bitcoin is, the hurdles to its wider adoption, and why every lawyer should accept legal fees in Bitcoin.
Plus, we also talk about why computers are only as secure as the people who use them, which means the computers in most law firms are not very secure.
Marco Santori has been called “the dean of digital currency lawyers,” and he has built a practice around the crypto-currency, Bitcoin. On today’s episode, he introduces Bitcoin, including where it comes from and how it works. He explains why you should care about it even if most of the people using it right now are paying for drugs. And he explains why lawyers should seriously consider accepting Bitcoin from clients.
