Crypto Daily’s Brian Wilson was lucky enough to attend the 2019 Anarchapulco conference in Acapulco, Mexico last month. The conference brought together a bunch of like minded libertarians in order to allow for open, honest and transparent debate within topics surrounding anarchy.
Of course, cryptocurrency falls into this - a decentralised form of value not owned or facilitated by banks or central governments, in it’s full essence, crypto is an anarchists dream which is why Anarchapulco hosted it’s very own crypto stage, featuring prolific individuals drafted in to discuss the beauty of crypto and blockchain technology.
We had the opportunity to meet some of these speakers, namely Lyn Ulbricht, campaigner and mother of Ross Ulbricht - the creator of the Silk Road website. Lyn is the mind behind the Free Ross campaign, a campaign set up to lift the charges set against Ross for his role in the set up of Silk Road, something that has long been associated with the rise of Bitcoin.

“Ross Ulbricht is serving a double life sentence + 40 years without parole for all non-violent charges associated with creating the Silk Road website. Passionate about privacy and free markets, he was 26 years old when he made the site. He had no prior record and no victim was named at trial. Ross is now serving his sixth year in prison and has paid a heavy price. He was an idealistic entrepreneur who never intended harm. He has expressed profound remorse, and if released tomorrow, he would never break the law again. Ross clings to the hope of a second chance and dreams of a future where he can use his education, knowledge and skills to contribute to his community and society as a whole.”
