The general public might be launched to the “Tabula Rasa, his clean-slate imaginative and prescient for Bitcoin’s transformational rebirth, and the declaration of his id.” The Tabula Rasa is a idea outlined by John Locke that means people are born with a “clean slate” and all the pieces is discovered by means of one’s sensory experiences.

And the Satoshi LARP Award Goes to…
