1. Chalmers, Ross. The Politics Of Cryptography: How Has Cryptography Transformed Power Relations Between Citizens And The State Through Privacy & Finance?.

Degree: 2018, Leiden University

This research examines the role of Cryptography in altering the power relations between the State and its citizens in relation to both privacy and economics. As Cryptography has become stronger with the rise of the computer age the ability to hide oneself has accompanied it, however, this has also allowed for stronger surveillance techniques from the State as well. The debate between the privacy of citizens against the security of the State and its peoples have accompanied this debate since the rise of advanced Cryptology since the 1960’s. The Crypto Anarchist ideology has also grown with these advances and their battle against the State has been key in disseminating the ideas of privacy for oneself. In recent years, Crypto Anarchist’s have achieved their goal of a Peer-To-Peer decentralised currency by the name of Bitcoin. This has revitalised the movement and is another example of Crypto Anarchists attempting to wrestle back individual citizen’s control against that of the State. This paper will examine this understudied ideology and examine the battle that continues to this day between Crypto Anarchist’s, the State and its citizens. Advisors/Committee Members: Sengupta, Roshni (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Cryptography; Encryption; Bitcoin; Crypto Anarchy
