    The first time I heard... he explained that he likes

    I am making the right use of tenses here?

    The first time I heard an interview of him, in early 2014 (only few months after he got into this field) he explained that he likes this idea because he thought it would allow to protect digital scarity in case something better would appear.

    Why we shouldn't use would with "in case something better appeared"?

    Invert the subject and verb to form a question.

    Affirmative: "We shouldn't use would."
    Interrogative: "Why shouldn't we use would?"
