70% of the United States’ nuclear warheads are stored on submarines. My technical report focuses on my time at Progeny Systems upgrading software tools used to help develop secure communications with submarines and ensure nuclear devices are not compromised by malicious actors. While not every nation has nuclear weapons, all have a subset of citizens who feel that their government has too much influence over their lives and money. Proponents of cryptocurrencies argue that the anonymous transfers of money they allow protect users from the sprawling power of governments. My STS research focused on illuminating how variation in trust in government, among other factors, drives the disparate rate of cryptocurrency adoption among developed and developing nations.
