Reason TV's Zach Weissmueller sat down with Byrne in Overstock's headquarters in Utah to talk about Byrne's return to the helm of the company after taking a medical leave of absence (0:53 - "I'm actually healthier than I've been in about 30 years."), his enthusiasm for bitcoin and other blockchain-based technology (4:18 - "For five thousand years, society has accumulated these [centralized] institutions like barnacles on our hull, and now the blockchain lets us scrape those off."), his new venture t0 that brings the blockchain to the financial sector (5:26 - "We now have built a blockchain version of Wall St."), his support of Gary Johnson (11:23 - "He's 'pro-freedom.'"), and his disdain for both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton (15:09 - "I don't consider Donald Trump a businessman.").
