Banknote designer and author of "Art & Money" explores history, symbolism and the aesthetics of trust.

"Bitcoin is one of the few things in this world that is truly avant-garde." —Tom Badley

I’m joined by banknote designer and author of "Art & Money," Tom Badley. His rare skill sets and unique perspectives on history, symbolism and meaning, and art's role in, around and on money are the currency for our conversation. He brings deeply thoughtful reasoning to his own work and weaves a path back to the Baroque for all of us to better understand and ground ourselves for the future. While we have our differing opinions on NFTs and other D.I.N.O. blockchains, we find common ground on creative freedom, trust, scarcity and Bitcoin as the true avant-garde.
