Bitcoin's Warrior Queen: How Lightning's Elizabeth Stark Raised an Army
December 31, 2018 1:55 PM Discuss A former academic, Elizabeth Stark likes to play devil's advocate. Take, for instance, her appearance at the Crypto Springs conference in October 2018.

Now, I feel like we've entered into a Bitcoin, not Blockchain world, where people understand the value of cryptocurrency technology and what these can bring. You also have proof of work in Bitcoin, you have the public/private key cryptography. There are other things that make Bitcoin special. Somehow, the Blockchain part got separated and became a thing.
