In October, Edward Snowden gave a candid talk at Camp Decrypt in Napa CA about the Ethereum merge, the sanctioning of Ethereum mixer Tornado Cash by the U.S. government, the privacy shortcomings of Bitcoin and Ethereum, and using DAOs to source tips from whistleblowers. Snowden discussed the implications of the Ethereum merge, which will combine Ethereum and Ethereum Classic into one network, and the potential consequences of the U.S. government sanctioning Tornado Cash, a mixer used to obfuscate transactions on the Ethereum blockchain. Snowden also discussed his views on the privacy shortcomings of Bitcoin and Ethereum and the need for more privacy-preserving technologies. He spoke about the potential of using DAOs to source tips from whistleblowers and the need for increased transparency and accountability in the cryptocurrency space.
