I don't remember much of the discussions, but they were often pretty extensive. Both anarchocapitalist ideas and how to implement PPL using smart contracts (old issues of Extropy might have a few illuminating articles), technical discussions about protocols and of course hardware worries about rod logic computers cracking codes. I think the key insight was that crypto could act as a primitive for building awesome things.
I certainly learned a fair bit about crypto from it, ending up getting Schneiers' Applied Cryptography. Some ideas from those discussions show up in my early RPG writing like http://www.aleph.se/Nada/InfoWar/economics.html
