The Truth About Funny Money
We are living in unprecedented times.
In the wake of COVID-19, economic problems and government overreach have accelerated at breakneck speeds.
While media pundits and talking heads parroted the illusion that the economy was booming before COVID, many people are well aware that the national debt was climbing and the Federal Reserve was printing money like it was going out of style.
It should come as no surprise then with the advent of a crisis, that governments would only increase their spending, money creation, and intrusion into our lives.
What’s the result of all of that funny money?
You guessed it … inflation.
Inflation Is Only Getting Worse
What was once the talk of survivalists and gold buffs has now broken into the mainstream.
It’s no longer some far-off possibility; inflation is here, and it’s only getting worse.
And that’s not the only financial problem we are facing. Federal and state governments have managed to get countless people dependent on them for sustenance through extended unemployment benefits and universal basic income schemes.
These alarming trends are showing no signs of letting up.
Increasing Surveillance and Control
It’s not just the financial woes we should be worried about. Technocrats, bureaucrats, and controlling politicians are definitely not letting this crisis go to waste. They are taking every opportunity they have to increase the amount of surveillance and control they have over the
Many jurisdictions have implemented or are pushing for immunity passports, which are digital certificates that show whether you have received the COVID-19 vaccine or not.
Big tech and mobile phone companies implemented contact tracing technology that literally tracked people’s every move as it related to those around them. It should come as no surprise that on numerous occasions, this technology was being used outside of its original scope and was even utilized to track anti-lockdown protestors!
Cryptocurrency: Hope for Free-Thinking People
One top of all that, censorship is being utilized to silence dissent. Not only are opinions and social media accounts being censored, but people, businesses, and organizations that speak out against the status quo are having their payment-processing capabilities shut down!
While this may all seem rather daunting, there are new technologies and innovations that are providing hope to free-thinking people all over the world.
Cryptocurrency is a technology that gives people control over their money and their information.
Created in 2008 with the invention of Bitcoin, cryptocurrency has quickly grown and evolved into a global industry that is disrupting banking, payment processing, and even social media.
With inflation on the rise, many people are putting their wealth into Bitcoin and other cryptos with a fixed supply. Unlike the United States Dollar and other fiat currencies, these digital currencies cannot be inflated at the whims of the financial elite.
The Innovation of Digital Scarcity
One of the great innovations of Bitcoin was the development of digital scarcity. This made it impossible for Bitcoin to be cloned or counterfeited.
Bitcoin is capped at a supply of 21 million, meaning that rather than being inflationary, it’s deflationary … which means there is a tendency for the value or price of each unit to go up.
This has definitely been the case since Bitcoin inception, with the price recently reaching $40,000!
The Buzz About Decentralized Finance
There is a lot of buzz right now about decentralized finance or DeFi. DeFi allows people to earn interest for supplying money to a “smart contract” or on the other side, they can take out low-interest loans without having to do a credit check or give up any personal information.
This trend in decentralized finance will most certainly disrupt the entire financial industry.
On top of being a means to protect one’s wealth from inflation, cryptocurrency also gives people the freedom to choose whom they do business with. This means that even if a government or bank doesn’t like your values or what you are selling, you can still maintain a payment channel with your clients or make purchases from your favorite vendor.
This is especially important as it is becoming common for those that stand against the prevailing narrative to have their ability to accept donations be taken from them.
Not with cryptocurrency!
It can’t be shut down as it is decentralized and there is no one party or group in charge of it.
Take That, Big Tech! (Censor-Proof Social Media)
One incredible innovation that cryptocurrency and blockchain technology brings to the table is censor-proof social media.
Decentralized programs like LBRY (also known as Odysee) are
enabling people to host video content, much like YouTube, but since the media is recorded on the blockchain it cannot be taken down or censored!
Take that, Big Tech!
The truth is, cryptocurrency has been providing immense value for a good number of people for quite some time.
Unfortunately for many, however, it can be a bit overwhelming when they first get involved.
While there are countless videos and guides online, it’s difficult to find educational material that is clear cut and simple.
