Private Passports

I’ve been banging on for years about the end of the nation state, and the possibility of the virtual private state, and private passports. Since first writing about it in 2000 in the New Barbarian Manifesto I’ve been pondering how it could be implemented. In parallel I’ve been championing private currency with my off-planet banking idea, now made more feasible with the rise of blockchain technology.

Pavlo Tanasyuk has introduced me to a group called BitNation, who have put the two together, and are using Bitcoin 2.0 blockchain technology to create a cryptographically secured private ledger that is a de facto virtual state. Brilliant!

Check them out at bitnation.co,with their Governance 2.0. Also see the video of Susanne Tarkowski Tempelhof being interviewed by Max Keiser on his Keiser Report on RT TV.

P.S. Don’t confuse them with the Bit Nation video games channel!!
