In this talk, Andreas examines the sensationalist debate over "fake news," the rising tide of faith-based nation states declaring bitcoin as "fake money," and alternative mechanisms we can build to fill the void left by retired fact-checking departments & central bank authorities. 

This talk took place at the Silicon Valley Bitcoin meetup on April 11th 2017 at the Plug and Play Tech Center (@PlugandPlayTC) in Sunnyvale, California:
