skyline-londonskyline london 2skyline-londonGarrick Hileman is an Economic Historian at LSE and the founder of Macro Digest. We met on typical grey afternoon in London and discussed; Alternative currencies, why they mostly die, and where bitcoin can learn from others. Money and how society perceives it. What type of currency are cryptocurrencies? We also developed a vibrant conversation about bitcoin in the media, the myth of Satoshi Nakamoto, hackers, and the effects of social events driving the price of bitcoin. Garrick speaks on various forums and panels across the world. An excerpt from our interview below, I hope you enjoy. Follow @GarrickHileman
