Phil Zimmerman, Creator of PGP

Phil Zimmermann tells his inspiring story at the second day of Bitcoin Wednesday’s 5-Year Anniversary conference.  Phil is the inventor of PGP and a pioneer of the cypherpunk movement, a forerunner of the digital currency revolution.  The PGP encryption software he created is based on public key cryptography, the system of public and private keys we use to manage cryptocurrencies today.
