Although Forbes has classified the largest cryptocurrency as a tool in the fight against corruption at the highest level, a media guru still recognized the challenge of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. As he says, they “must first become as reliable as classic and familiar all gold“. In this respect, the advantage of Bitcoin is that it is virtually impossible to crack. However, the coin need to get rid of its inherent level of volatility.
By the way, this isn't the first time in the podcast ARK Invest sound laudatory odes Bitcoin.
For example, Tesla co-founder Elon Musk also spoke in favor of the cryptocurrency. As he said then, cryptocurrencies are a great invention, which helps to get around strict currency controls in countries like Venezuela, whose government oppresses its own citizens.
There are other benefits
Bitcoin is not only a tool to combat authoritarian governments, but also an excellent candidate for the role of hedging (i.e. insurance against risk) against inflation and irresponsible fiscal/monetary policy.
In a recent interview on the topic of Bitcoin from Bloomberg editor and investment strategist at Jarden of Dillian said that the “philosophical core” of national currencies has never been so close to failure. In his view, governments are moving to a model that is known as Modern monetary theory. In simple terms, is to”print as much cash money as the government needs to Finance its own expenditure”.
This transition, according to Dillian will be extremely bullish for Bitcoin, since people will increasingly want to get rid of any of the currencies subject to significant devaluation — that is, depreciation.
