What makes the HIVE blockchain decentralised and why is Brian suing Facebook & Google?

In Conversation #71, Brian and I discussed: why decentralisation is so important to stopping online censorship, the need for peer to peer networks being established before following the value for value model, the whole story of the STEEM/HIVE saga, the global notification service called PodPing and why he is part of lawsuit suing Google & Facebook for banning cryptocurrency advertising back in 2018.

As always, we hope you enjoy. Mere Mortals out!
