The past couple of months have been crazy in the cryptoverse, with rumors of a “Globalist takeover” of Bitcoin (BTC) and some people favoring its cryptographic offshoot, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) as becoming the future of Bitcoin. I was shocked the other day when I checked on my Bitfinex account to find that they are telling US Residents to empty their holdings, as they will no longer be servicing us. FACTA and the long arm of the IRS have made it not worth the nuisance for non-US businesses to do business with Americans. Meanwhile, Bitcoin just reached a new high, over $8,100.
This minidocumentary was produced by the Iranian state news agency, PressTV and it features my friend, Jeff Berwick, Roger Ver, Jeffrey Tucker and Craig Wright the chief creator of Bitcoin (aka Satoshi Nakamoto), to talk about the technology behind Bitcoin, as well as to respond to attempts to manipulate public opinion about Bitcoin by JPMorgan CEO, Jamie Dimon and IMF Managing Director, Christine Lagarde.
It’s fascinating to see the anti-government focus of this PressTV feature. Although Iran is widely seen to have among the world’s most oppressive regimes, it is perhaps the most staunchly anti-Globalist on the planet.
