Quotes from the Episode:

“In the crypto-space, especially in privacy coins, it’s much more desirable in some sense to have a decentralized governance, just because a decentralized system is more resilient.” [00:04:45]

“Beam has created a very active, organic community of over 50,000 people across different platforms.” [00:11:40]

“The first logical step would be to allow confidential trading of existing tokens.” [00:16:05]

“Even today our wallets both desktop and mobile can actually work with remote node using the Flagline Protocol.” [00:28:36]
