While the idea of cryptocurrencies being a hedge against inflation and safe haven for wealth is starting to be accepted, we have a long way to go before we truly realise the power of Bitcoin and what it can do to propel humanity into the next phase of civilisation.
We have seen in the past couple of years how money has been used in our own so called democratic and free society to control people. Imagine how money is used in oppressive totalitarian, authoritarian, occupied, oppressed and suppressed countries.
Countries like North Korea, where the government has demonetised their FIAT currency rendering everyone’s wealth worthless almost overnight and now everyone gets government supplied rations.
Or the 14 African nations who still use french colonial currencies that are not exchangeable to any other currency other than the EURO and the french still hold all their gold reserves.
