Bitcoin is compared to the early internet by Joe Rogan, presenter of The Joe Rogan Experience. “The government is panicking out,” he said, noting that bitcoin is now “a viable kind of cash” with which “you can actually buy stuff.”
Joe Rogan, the presenter of The Joe Rogan Experience, discussed bitcoin on his show, which. Khalil Rountree Jr., a UFC light heavyweight competitor, is interviewed on the episode.
Rogan told Rountree,
I think about Bitcoin the same way I think about the early internet.” He said the government “didn’t see it coming” and that they “didn’t see it coming.
It’s now a valid form of payment. You can use it to make purchases. I believe the government is in a panic.
He went on to say what he expects the government to do, noting that during the Obama administration, they tried to censor the internet. “It broke apart because people were upset and uproared, and they didn’t think the political ramifications were worth it… “As a result, they backed off,” Rogan remarked.
The prominent podcaster believes that similar to what China is doing, the government would eventually establish a centralized digital currency. He emphasized:
They plan to introduce digital money – a centralized digital currency under their control. What’s worrisome about the government’s centralized digital currency, according to Rogan, is that they can look at you and your online conduct to decide what you can and can’t spend your money on. He warned that the government might allow someone to spend money on food but not on travel.
“What we’re seeing right now is, it’ll either fall apart entirely or we’ll utilize this as an opportunity to right the ship and come up with a better way to live our lives,” he said at the time.
