Bitcoin Fights Government Corruption, Restores Democracy
The chief strategy officer of the Human Rights Foundation, Alex Gladstein, recently argued that Bitcoin (BTC) can act as a barrier against government corruption and tyranny. Gladstein, who has been with the nonprofit organization since 2007, believes that the decentralized nature of Bitcoin is a powerful tool for protecting people’s rights.
“Where democracies have broken down, I do think it’s very clearly related to fiat currency, and I do think that Bitcoin fixes this in a way,” he said.
Gladstein believes that Bitcoin represents free speech, property rights, and open capital markets, all of which are stifling to a tyrannical government. He states that governments such as China and Russia need censorship, closed capital markets, and confiscation in order to survive, but Bitcoin makes it difficult for them to impose these restrictions on their people.
The Chinese government banned virtually all crypto transactions in 2021, but the upcoming crypto licensing regime in Hong Kong has led to speculation that China’s stance on crypto is softening. Russia’s major crypto law, “On Digital Financial Assets,” officially prohibited the use of crypto for payment purposes in 2020. However, Russians are still allowed to invest in crypto, and local crypto exchanges remain unregulated.
OpenNode, a Bitcoin infrastructure provider, has voiced similar opinions about the benefits of Bitcoin in evading authoritative crackdowns. In a 2021 post, OpenNode wrote that “one of the benefits of Bitcoin is its censorship resistance” and that it has become “the currency of choice for many individuals and organizations who have been left out of traditional payment methods.”
A February 2022 investigation by blockchain analytics firm Elliptic revealed that one of the biggest reasons for embracing blockchain-based fundraising was to avoid traditional accounts being closed by financial institutions.
Gladstein predicts that there will be more “trigger moments” in the coming years of people having “technical and liquidity trouble with traditional financial services,” which will result in more people shifting to BTC as an alternative.
“If there’s a conflict or a breakdown in trade or communications, you’re just gonna see a whole hell of a lot of problems, and every single one of those is like a moment that’s gonna mint a new Bitcoiner out of necessity,” he said.
The power of blockchain technology, and more specifically, Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), is becoming increasingly apparent. NFTs have opened up a new world of possibilities for marketing, promotion and monetization of digital assets. With the rise of the web3 space, an increasing number of companies are turning to NFTs to promote their products and services.
NFTs can be used to create unique digital experiences, such as digital art, music, collectibles, and even virtual real estate. They can also be used to create exclusive promotions and incentives for customers. For example, companies can offer limited edition NFTs as rewards for early adopters or loyal customers.
NFTs can also be used for marketing purposes, such as launching campaigns on social media platforms like Twitter. Companies can use NFTs to create unique content, engage with their customers, and generate more interest in their products and services.
The potential of NFTs has led to the emergence of NFT marketing agencies, which specialize in developing strategies to help companies promote their products and services using NFTs. These agencies provide services such as creating custom NFTs, developing marketing campaigns, and helping companies sell NFTs.
As the web3 space continues to grow, NFTs are becoming an increasingly popular way for companies to promote their products and services. With the help of NFT marketing agencies, companies can take advantage of the power of blockchain technology to create unique digital experiences, engage with their customers, and generate more interest in their products and services.Disclaimer: All investment or financial opinions expressed by MoonLanding Media are not recommendations and are intended for entertainment purposes only.
