“Encryption anarchist Manifesto” (The Crypto Anarchist Manifesto), the author of one of the sponsors of the cypherpunks May died Timothy C..
Timothy May friends, anonymous network protection project Tor Lucky Green said early investors tweets in its Facebook, my dear friend, freedom fighter Timothy May earlier in the week before he died at home in California’s Lituo. “If I hadn’t met Tim May and become friends with him, I will not enter this field.”
Founder Vitalik Buterin is also in the etheric Fang twitter forwarding Timothy May article condolences.
The scientist is little known to the public, the godfather of the field of digital currency. Intelligent Nick Szabo put forward the concept of contract in the speech, will bring Tim May.
Tim May is a former Intel senior scientist and electrical engineer, to solve the Alpha problem of particle on chip. In the combination of technological and political field, he is a columnist and freedom fighter.
According to Marx, published “encryption anarchist Manifesto”
Radical monetary claims that liberalization of economic liberalization. Liberal economist Hayek had a “non national currency”, that any subject can issue currency.
The computer and the encryption technology is born, gave more freedom and boundary, and the birth of the “crypto anarchism”.
This is a political philosophy belief system, the earliest in the last century in 80s San Francisco Bay area, and then by a group claiming to be “spread the cypherpunks”.
Encryption anarchists advocate “complete economic deregulation”, any online transactions should be free. Encryption technology can help users to protect privacy, means not to be intervention, independence and autonomy. They said: “the new text encryption technology and can be opened to the center of personal freedom, protection of freedom of speech, the government and other organizations to resist the invasion of privacy.”
“We use cryptography, anonymous e-mail system, digital signature and electronic money to protect our privacy.” Encryption technology to help achieve the top two, but the electronic money has not been successful design.
Greg Milner “encryption anarchist past” wrote: “in 1978, the UCLA David Chaum to undergraduate research to create a blind digital signature scheme, the public key encryption idea created together with the group database, let the members of a group that is true and remain anonymous members.
In mid 1980, Chaum invented the anonymous payment and can ensure the funds real way. But the Chaum method is not completely decentralized, problems still need to solve the double bank. But the news spread quickly, and the encryption of anarchist public waves.
Timothy May the right time to decide. He follow Marx’s Manifesto of the Communist Party in 1988, with a mere 500 word “encryption anarchist Manifesto” laid the basis of the movement.”
This declaration wrote:
As the change of printing technology and the weakening of the medieval guilds and the social power structure strength, cryptographic methods will fundamentally change the nature of the enterprise and government intervention on economic transactions. Combined with the emerging market information, encrypted anarchy will create a flow of all graphic material market.
Seemingly not worth mentioning inventions such as barbed wire, the large ranch and farm fence as possible, thus forever changed the western border of the land and property rights. Seemingly not worth mentioning that also appears in the small branches of mathematics, as wire cutters and cut the barbed wire bound of intellectual property rights.
In addition, what you will not lose the barbed wire!
Tim May wants to open an encryption of the anarchist movement, it is the revolutionary army of the cypherpunks.
The creation of “cypherpunks” birth bitcoin
May launched the “cypherpunks” is an encrypted mail list, bitcoin is released.
Before bitcoin, the mail system also gave birth to countless crypto currency ideas, gave birth to the later bitcoin.
As a term, the cypherpunks (cypherpunk) first appeared in 1993 years in Eric Hughes'”A Cypherpunk’s Manifesto”. It emphasizes the individual’s own digital space, to promote the use of strong encryption algorithms to protect personal privacy, password system they oppose any government rules.
80 in the last century at the end of “cypherpunks” thoughts began to rise. The participants are a group of mysterious “geek genius”, the alliance has no formal leadership, generally by encrypting the email list by contact. May is a member of the.
The organization was originally a private party. The daily planet Odaily had reported that by the end of 1992, three retired technology big coffee invited twenty closest friends to participate in an informal meeting, when they discussed some procedures and code, the mysterious gate encryption currency it is also from this time, they are open.
At the age of 41, May is one of the three big coffee technology.
The original small private salon becomes a monthly meeting. At the first meeting, the hacker and writer Jude Milhon Cryptography (Judi mills Hong, often use St. Jude alias) this organization called “cypherpunks (Cypherpunk)”.
This humble organization began to expand, and sparked a revolution in the future of digital currency.
In order to come into contact with other “cypherpunks” organization outside the bay area, they decided to set up a mail list. This list is popular in high-end geeks, they discuss mathematics, encryption technology, computer technology, politics, philosophy inside…… All communication is through the innovation of the algorithm (such as PGP) encryption, so everyone’s privacy has been well protected.
According to reports of the mail system to send a hash, many early members of the elite IT, such as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Bram Cohen, BT download payment web inventor Tim Berners-Lee, Nick Szabo put forward the concept of intelligent contract, one of the founders of Facebook Sean Parker, bitcoin inventor Nakamoto So.
The design of at least ten kinds of digital currency and payment system was born in this system, such as E-cash, B-money.
These currencies have failed. Finally appeared bitcoin.

“Encryption anarchist Manifesto”
Timothy C. May
A ghost is shrouded in a modern world, a spectre of encryption of anarchism.
The critical point of computer technology is in a transformation. It will provide the possibility: individuals and groups to anonymously interact — two people can exchange information, do business, electronic contract and do not know each other’s name and legal status. Will not be traced in the interactive behavior of the Internet, because through the use of cryptographic protocol, packet encryption and anti intervention tools to reroute a large number of complex, can be almost perfectly guaranteed not to break the encryption. The credit will be very important in the transaction than today’s credit rating is more important is more important. These developments will completely change the nature of government regulation, the ability to limit the tax and the economic activities control, hidden information, or even completely change the nature of trust and reputation.
This technology will bring about a social revolution, but also the economic revolution in the past ten years, there have been theoretical discussion. These methods are based on public key encryption and zero knowledge interactive systems, as well as for interaction, authentication and verification software agreement. Since, in Europe and the United States Conference to pay close attention to these techniques, these are the national security bureau closely monitoring the meeting. But until recently, the computer network and personal computer to the development speed of only enough to make these ideas become feasible. The next ten years, the development speed of these technologies will be faster, so that these ideas in economically feasible, can not be blocked. High speed network, ISDN (ISDN), tamper proof tools, smart card, satellite, Ku transmitters, MIPS personal computer, and encryption chip developing technology, will become the enabling technology.
Of course, countries will try to slow or stop the spread of this technology, the reason is the national security – drug traffickers and tax evaders will use these technologies, and concerns about the disintegration of the society. There are many reasons to worry about encryption; anarchy will allow the state secrets and allow free trade, illegal transactions and stolen material. An anonymous computerized trading market will even make it possible for assassinations and extortion. All kinds of crime and foreign forces will become the active users of the network encryption. But this does not prevent the encryption of anarchy spread.
As the change of printing technology and the weakening of the medieval guilds and the social power structure strength, cryptographic methods will fundamentally change the nature of the enterprise and government intervention on economic transactions. Combined with the emerging market information, encrypted anarchy will create a flow of all graphic material market. Seemingly not worth mentioning inventions such as barbed wire, the large ranch and farm fence as possible, thus forever changed the western border of the land and property rights. Seemingly not worth mentioning that also appears in the small branches of mathematics, as wire cutters and cut the barbed wire bound of intellectual property rights.
In addition, what you will not lose the barbed wire!
