Too Long; Didn't Read

A group of activists emerged in the late 20th century with a mission to safeguard individual liberties through the development of decentralized money. These activists, known as cypherpunks, laid the groundwork for the creation and popularization of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. The movement gained momentum in the 1980s and 1990s as individuals concerned about the increasing surveillance sought ways to counteract these trends.
