"Bitcoin is a currency of resistance"
Max Keizer has been a Bitcoin bull (BTC), first finding out about the criptomoeda during his first blocks, if you want. And since then, the American broadcaster has incorporated his love for this nascent asset class into his program and his wife hosted at RT, which was aptly called the "Keizer Report."
Keizer recently invited Jimmy Song, a Bitcoin Core developer and leader in cryptography, to sit down with him and talk about this new technology. Song, a skeptic of altcoins (especially Bitcoin's forks), happily agreed, claiming he was a big fan of the Keizer Report and the overall perspective of the host.
Keizer noted that "when talking about users (consumers) overcoming the monoliths – corporations and plutocrats – I think Bitcoin is the currency of resistance. The pro-crypto figure drew attention to the Yellow Vest movement (GIlet Jaune), noting that activists can unite around the BTC as a mode of unification.
Song, seemingly somewhat hesitant to admit that Bitcoin should be used actively in a more violent revolutionary environment, noted that the "biggest" value proposition the asset accentuates is decentralized monetary (financial) power – the largest facet of humanity in the Song eyes. So he explained that moves like the French Gilet Jaunes should be regaining financial power instead of usurping the powers that be. So he explained that the BTC can facilitate a "more peaceful revolution" than the violent protests that occur around the world.
BTC may one day exceed $ 100,000 as "monetary black hole"
And it seems that Keizer's skepticism about traditional financial systems is deeply ingrained.
Keizer sat down with Allen Scott of the Bitcoinist to conduct an exclusive interview in November that touched on his skepticism about centralized entities.
However, although he seemed a bit skeptical of short-term cryptography, the diehard explained that he still sees long-term potential in Bitcoin, especially given its decentralized, borderless, censorship-resistant, and scanty nature – which makes BTC a great alternative to the currency issued by the government in various facets. Keizer was quoted as saying:
"Bitcoin is the black hole monetary that will swallow all the bonds and rise to more than $ 100,000. But humans themselves may never see that day … I have more faith in the BTC than in humans surviving the ecological holocaust that we unleash with our collective stupidity .
Keizer is not the only advocate of cryptography to claim that the BTC will usurp the hegemony that the government decree has over global finance. Speaking to encryption-centric creator Naomi Brockwell, ShapeShift boss Erik Voorhees told the influencer that he considered a government "coup" before adding that crypto-coins are a perfect alternative.
Tim Draper, a legendary American capitalist, echoed the sentiment, telling CNBC Africa's Ran NeuNer that with the BTC turning the global economy beyond the human imagination, "there will be no need to use fiduciary money again." Draper summed up an inflammatory statement to the fact that, when you reduce the cryptomoedas, they are "simply better."
