Erik is joined on this episode by Glen Weyl (@glenweyl), founder of RadicalxChange and co-author of Radical Markets, and Tomer Kagan (@Gradish), co-founder and CEO of Merit.

They discuss:

- What they’re working on in the space and how it will change how identity works in the future

- How to think about what makes up someone’s identity, including elements that are self-declared and those that can be independently verified

- Glen’s point that the internet is missing two crucial elements: a truth function and a dignity function

- How the world will be different if their projects succeed

- Pseudonymous identities

- The problem with large-scale identity or reputation systems, like the Chinese government or Uber have created

- Why blockchain is the wrong answer to the right question when it come to identity, and the idea that “most truth is local, not global”

- What they are still trying to figure out in the space
