It seems like everyone and their grandmother has an opinion on Bitcoin (BTC) these days. Will it rise? Will it fall? Is this the end of times? Yeah, everyone is a critic. That’s why it’s so important to listen to trustworthy people. Take Julian Assange for example. He has his own thoughts about BTC. But are they good ones?
JULIAN ASSANGE SAYS BITCOIN COULD TAKE DOWN WALL STREET
Julian Assange and his Wikileaks team are well known for making broad claims from their secret list of sources. That’s why it’s particularly interesting when he mentions Bitcoin. In 2017, Assange said the popular cryptocurrency was powerful. How powerful is BTC? Apparently, it’s powerful enough to take down Wall Street. He thinks where the “Occupy” movement failed, BTC will succeed in its place. To Assange, crypto will spark a global movement that will shrink the gap between the rich and poor. Sounds nice but how long will this last?
JULIAN ASSANGE PREDICTS THE END OF BITCOIN?
No one can predict the end of bitcoin. Not even Julian Assange. In fact, he’s probably praying it never dies. According to him, the company made a 50,000% return on BTC investment when they first bought it back in 2010. How did Assange make so much money? Apparently, the US government started an illegal banking blockade against Wikileaks in 2010. This forced people to pay the company with cryptocurrency instead of Visa, Mastercard, etc. Hence, it’s value increased. So if BTC is not going anywhere, what does this mean for the future of WikiLeaks?
THE NEXT JULIAN ASSANGE WILL USE BITCOIN
Let’s say the next Wikileaks is out there. No one in their right mind would invest in them. At least not in a traditional sense. But what if they had the chance to bypass the middlemen and the paperwork and directly fund some freedom fighter entrepreneur with a world-changing idea? That’s the power of blockchain based platforms like YouToken. Cryptocurrency allows investors to financially support true revolutionaries like Assange. Let’s hope it opens up the door for a completely transparent society, just like WikiLeaks always wanted.
