Bitcoin prices are soaring, and today Luke Rudkowski was joined by The Dollar Vigilante, Jeff Berwick, to discuss the Bitcoin surge and the future of cryptocurrencies.
The price of a Bitcoin broke $1,000 this week, and Berwick said he has been monitoring the cryptocurrency since 2011 when it was at $3. He said he was initially intrigued by the fact that Bitcoin is the first real free market money, aside from gold and silver.
“It can’t be controlled by governments or central banks, so I began covering it immediately in 2011 at $3, and made many millionaires through subscribers to the Dollar Vigilante,” Berwick said. “Even last summer, I covered it very heavily when it was around $200, and I said ‘this is your second chance to buy into it,’ and it has been soaring ever since.”
Berwick said he sees the rise in the price of Bitcoin as a reaction to the current state of the central banks, and the indebted governments around the world.
“The U.S. government is now just about to break $20 trillion in debt, going up massive amounts,” Berwick said. “We have Donald Trump about to come in, that’s causing a lot of confusion about what he might do. But he’s definitely talking about spending even more money, so the U.S. dollar will continue to collapse.”
Berwick described the current state as a “War on Cash,” pointing to India’s recent currency reset. He noted that today’s version of cash is nothing more than paper, and said he believes that in 20-30 years, we will look back on today and be amazed at the fact that we put so much value in paper money.
“Now all of the government are so indebted that they have to move to negative interest rates,” Berwick said. “So once they move to negative interest rates, a lot of people will just take their money out of the banks and say, ‘Why would I keep my money in the bank if I’m losing 3 percent just be keeping it there?’ So they’re trying to get rid of cash now, and this is what’s causing a massive demand for Bitcoin.”
