Keizer comes off the wall
Talking with CNBC AfricaKeizer, a longtime Bitcoin advocate, explained the fiat versus BTC argument by breaking a $ 10 bill while explaining that all fiat currencies go to zero against Bitcoin.
“Here’s a ten dollar bill, this is gargage. Your people in South Africa, you have your rand, right? That goes to zero. This also goes to zero, the euros to zero, the yen to zero, the Chinese currency to zero. Everything is going to zero against Bitcoin. “
He added that those who do not understand this will face a life of impoverishment when this happens.
When the interviewer said that tampering with the currency is a crime, Keizer launched into a tirade about political corruption. He said that whoever owns the Bitcoin makes the laws and adds that his wealth in BTC will buy any politician.
“Do you know that with the Bitcoin I have I can buy any fucking senator or congressman I want? I make the laws. The one with the Bitcoin makes the laws work. We’re not going to sit around and let the damn government tell us what to do … “
Commenting on the clip, Input Output Global CEO Charles Hoskinson responded with a gif from the 1983 film Scarface that shows the main character, Tony Montana, taking cocaine.
Although Keizer is known for his eccentric demeanor and blunt demeanor, some have questioned whether this interview has done more harm than good to Bitcoin’s image.
