Twitter CEO to Joe Rogan: I think the currency of the internet will be Bitcoin

posted over 1 year ago
Appearing on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Twitter and Square CEO, Jack Dorsey said "I believe the internet will have a native currency and I don’t know if it’s Bitcoin. I think it will be [Bitcoin] given all the tests it has been through and the principles behind it, how it was created. It was something that was born on the internet, was developed on the Internet, was tested on the internet, [and] it is of the Internet."

Dorsey explained to Rogan that Bitcoin adds another dimension to the goal of creating easier access to financial services. Dorsey likened the internet to a single nation that exists digitally. Thus, it only makes sense that it would have its own universally accepted currency. Present-day fiat money is usually subject to nationalistic policies that might not appeal to different places across the globe. Bitcoin, however, is based purely on mathematical algorithms providing a certain sense of neutrality and universality devoid of any geographical or political bias.
