TOKYO! - Bitcoin Meetups, Capsule Hotels, and Interviewing Roger Ver.
Heading back into the city tomorrow.
On my last visit I took in @ned's talk and presentation for the Steemit-jp community, photographed some stuff, and took some requests on what folks wanted to see in this big bizarre metropolis. THIS TIME:
Interviewing Roger Ver (@rogerkver) on Bitcoin Cash, Voluntaryism, and the Future of Crypto.
As usual combining everything into one travel-y, libertarian, cultural, beer-infused amalgam of freedom, photography, and philosophy.
If there is anything specific you would like me to bring up or ask in the interview tomorrow, please go ahead and tell me here in the comments. I'll be focusing on some pretty commonly talked about points regarding Bitcoin/Bitcoin Cash, but more importantly, I'm going to be diving into the heart of voluntaryist philosophy and principle, and discussing things in that light, as well. Ver is a fellow Voluntaryist, and is also viewed as a sort of Messiah/Satan (depends on who you talk to) in the crypto space at large. Full disclosure: I am a supporter of Bitcoin Cash, and a radical purist "terrorist" when it comes to Voluntaryism (individual self-ownership). Voluntaryism, is, after all, about the non-negotiable, nature-conferred, objective reality of the right of each individual to his or her life and property!
I will also be attending the Tokyo monthly Bitcoin meetup at Two Dogs Taproom in Roppongi, later tomorrow night, so am looking forward to networking there, meeting some liberty/crypto pals, and buying a beer or two with Bitcoin.
My hotel accommodations. A capsule at the Ishino Onsen Vivi, in Roppongi.
I'm going to be staying at a capsule hotel for economic reasons, experiential reasons, and also because-they-seem-to-have-a-kick-ass-public-bath...reasons. In my 8 years of living here in Japan, I've actually only stayed in a capsule hotel 2 or 3 times. It's always an interesting experience. This place comes equipped with a workout room, onsen, hot rock sauna, and all kinds of other neat little options.

So, in summary, please let me know:
- What you would like to hear discussed in my interview with Roger Ver
- What you wanna see in Tokyo/at Two Dogs
- What you wanna know about capsule hotels
- The meaning of life
