Describe Bitcoin in a sentence
Bitcoin is freedom money.
What do you love most about Bitcoin?
Its censorship resistance and the supply limit. Bitcoin simultaneously is a freedom tool and also sound money.
What dangers do you see facing Bitcoin?
Governments actively trying to destroy it, whether they do it through strict on and off ramps control or by controlling the mining side of things.
What is your prediction for Bitcoin over the next years?
Bitcoin’s scarcity is going to become more and more apparent in the next halvings, which is going to have an effect on it’s price. Adoption by countries that suffer of hyper inflation will continue to happen in large scale and eventually mass adoption will allow the world to transaction using a single type of money, the soundest money that ever existed.
