One of the reasons the modern digital privacy ecosystem is what it is now is the hacking scene in the late nineties. The cypherpunk (not to be confused with cyberpunk) was a fringe, anarco-libertarian culture that inspired concepts we now take for granted, such as peer-to-peer, end-to-end encryption, and cryptocurrency. These have been part of a constant technopolitical war since.
