The Crypto Anarchist Manifesto - RIP Tim May


"Arise, you have nothing to lose but your barbed wire fences!"

Today news was released that Tim May has passed away. May was a founding member of the cypherpunk mailing list, wrote extensively about privacy and cryptography, and his writings are considered to have been a large inspiration for Bitcoin.
I wanted to share some of my favorite excerpts from an important piece of his, the Crypto Anarchist Manifesto, which he wrote in 1988.

RIP, Tim May
