George Selgin, a popular economist believes that Bitcoin will never see mainstream adoption. He attributes this factor to the volatility prevalent in the market, which the common folks wish to avoid. That is why the Dollar is used, because it is stable. George wholeheartedly thinks that bitcoin won’t be able to combat against central banks.
However, Saifedean Ammous, the author of “The Bitcoin Standard” holds the opinion that Bitcoin has come a long way during the course of a decade. In fact, it has only surged forward with the passage of time. Ammous understands that the king coin still has drawbacks to overcome, but has faith in this project. He deems it as the best alternative against central banks. Saifedean considers Bitcoin to be the next step in human evolution.
Anyone remember the Panama Papers?
It revealed the rich dodging taxes and commiting fraud.
Want to guess who was listed in the papers?
Treasury Secretary, “Cash is not laundered as much as bitcoin” Steven Mnuchin.
Hypocrisy at its best. 😂

Daphne Anne Caruana Galizia, was a Maltese activists and investigative journalist, who played a major role in the expose of Mossack Fonseca. Individuals such as Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had allegedly been responsible of fraud and tax evasion. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. More than a 100 names were unveiled, and Daphne was killed as a result of an explosion.
This shows that no-one, even the “heroes” we look up to, are incapable of being greedy maniacs.
