Varoufakis, is no stranger to digital economies, in 2012, he became the economist on-staff at Valve Corporation, who created some of the most recognizable game titles in videogame history. Varoufakis maintained a blog while he was employed at Valve, some of his commentary is very agreeable with the decentralized nature of bitcoin’s blockchain technology. Varoufakis’s blog posts clearly indicated a very favorable opinion on the corporate structure at Valve, he wrote, “One in which there are no bosses, no delegation, no commands, no attempt by anyone to tell someone what to do.” He was also very impressed with the in-game economic model, where every transaction left a record. Varoufakis wrote, 'Think of it: an economy where every action leaves a digital trail, every transaction is recorded.'....."
