Bitcoin’s Decentralized Nature is a Barrier Against Corruption and Tyranny – A. Gladstein
According to Alex Gladstein, the Chief Strategy Officer of the Human Rights Foundation and a prominent Bitcoin advocate, the flagship cryptocurrency can help prevent corruption and tyranny due to its decentralized nature.
Bitcoin represents free speech, property rights, and open capital markets, making it challenging for authoritarian governments to censor, confiscate, or close capital markets.
Alex Gladstein, the Chief Strategy Officer of the Human Rights Foundation, believes that Bitcoin’s decentralized nature can act as a barrier against corruption and tyranny, particularly in countries where people live “under authoritarian rule.”
According to Gladstein, Bitcoin represents free speech, property rights, and open capital markets, which are stifling to a tyrannical government that often needs censorship, confiscation, and closed capital markets.
He predicts that in the coming years, more people will shift to Bitcoin as an alternative due to “trigger moments” when they have technical and liquidity problems with traditional financial services, resulting in the minting of new Bitcoiners out of necessity.
