Read_603 – If Russia Invites Bitcoin Adoption, The Global Arms Race Begins [Mike Hobart]

“The U.S. and its allies are now effectively backed into a series of corners. Can the U.S. attempt to ban Bitcoin and its transactions? It can try, but will fail. China has already tried to do so, multiple times, and the same goes for India. Not to mention, the U.S. now has a multitude of politicians advocating for Bitcoin adoption, like U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis and state governors showing political support for the asset and network.” – Mike Hobart

Bitcoin has suddenly and aggressively entered the global political stage in recent weeks, and there will be no going back at this point. It is time for Bitcoiners to kick into high gear on what tools we use, how we onboard new users, and our education for those at the greatest risk in our increasingly volatile political environments. How do the benefits of Bitcoin mining, and its potential to bolster the energy grid & production, its benefit in international trade and routing around sanctions, mix with its undermining of monetary policy and likelihood of causing outflows from an increasingly fragile banking system? And what will Russia’s response be in the coming years? Mike breaks down the mining and energy side of the equation, and we discuss Josef Tetek’s article as well on the opposing issues.

There is so much to unpack in these events, and this will be covered again in the near future. Stay tuned, stay subscribed, and dont miss the next few weeks of Bitcoin Audible. Its getting crazy out there ladies & gents, buckle your seatbelts.
