Interview Description: In this episode of The Center Cannot Hold, host Alex McShane is joined by the legendary wrestler and MMA fighter Ben Askren. They focus on Ben’s journey down the Bitcoin rabbit gap, from when he was first informed about it, via his hypothesis and losses in different cryptocurrencies, to right now, when Ben has his very personal present about Bitcoin and crypto. The pair focus on why Ben believes Bitcoin is the way forward for cash, the issue with authorities overreach, the protections that Bitcoin presents, and the truth that nobody can take your Bitcoin from you and why that makes it so particular.
Quotes from the present:
“I use Bitcoin to free myself from the dictatorships around me.”
“My Bitcoin is just not confiscatable.”
“How are you going to take my Bitcoin? You cannot!”
“I misplaced my bitcoins in a boating accident.”
