We talk with Balaji Srinivasan, formerly CTO of Coinbase, GP at Andreessen Horowitz, and founder of, about some of the themes and ideas he is working on for his forthcoming book, “the Network State”, including:

- Why he thinks decentralization is going to shape the future of media and the state
How scar tissue causes people to miss impactful trends and ideas before they “go vertical”
- Why digital geography is plastic and dynamic, and how it will lead to the formation of whole new countries and cities
- The distinction between founders who build the future and inheritors who run legacy businesses or win public office in the current system.
- Why Silicon Valley is no longer a physical place and the portability of social networks
