Ian Wright:

"The majority of the bitcoin/blockchain community is libertarian and/or profoundly pro-capitalist in outlook. They are blind to the essential act of theft that is at the heart of capitalist property relations. So much of the energy of the community is focused on making existing property relations more efficient. But it turns out that there’s a great deal to say about the potential application of blockchain-like technologies to building socialist institutions."
