Kanye West revealed in a recent interview how impressed he is with bitcoiners, or people who like Bitcoin
Speaking with MMA fighter and comedian Joe Rogan last podcast, Kanye West said that bitcoiners know how to really liberate America, and in addition, the rapper explained that Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, had decentralized the platform because he talked to the “Bitcoin guys”.
“And these are guys who really have a perspective on what the real liberation of America and humanity will look like,” said West in Saturday’s episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience”.
“Specifically, these guys … many tech guys were able to use the new … information highways and create the next frontier of our existence,” he added.
Earlier this month, Dorsey’s other company, Square, bought 4,709 BTC worth $ 50 million, a move that catapulted Square to a height. In a white paper, the company detailed how it performed the purchase of Bitcoins through an over-the-counter provider.
Dorsey is a well-known supporter of Bitcoin and even said in an earlier interview with The Times U.K. that one day it could become the world’s single currency.
Meanwhile, much of West’s conversation with Rogan revolved around his presidential race, as well as his perceptions of the political and financial systems. The rapper, who has sold 140 million records worldwide, announced his candidacy in July. And he confirmed during the podcast interview that he is still competing.
West said it is listed on ballots in 12 states. In 17 other states, voters can register. The Yeezy founder said he could possibly win this year, but added that he was more certain that he would be able to win the 2024 elections.
Kenye West also revealed his preference for Bitcoin in previous interviews. In 2018, he said it was when he looked at the $ 20 bill that he first wanted to use Bitcoin. In the same year, he tweeted “decentralize”, which Bitcoin Magazine said was a nod to the cryptocurrency industry.
Bitcoin recently surpassed $ 13,000 for the first time in over a year, closing at $ 13,122 on Saturday and $ 13,040 the next day.
