Eccentric rapper and presidential candidate Kanye West indicated that he finds it interesting that Bitcoiners have an idea about “The true liberation of America and humanity”.
In effect, the artist said that he has recently been talking to his Bitcoiner friends about the crypto world. In fact, he noted that he did so in preparation for the interview with Joe Rogan, an MMA fighter, libertarian, comedian and self-described «Psychedelic adventurer”.
For context, Joe Rogan has long been a supporter of cryptocurrencies. Interviewing Bitcoin evangelist Andreas Antonopoulos several times, and prompting guests like Jack Dorsey on the subject.
Bitcoiners understand how to liberate humanity
Anyway, this October 24, Kanye West took some time to discuss Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. This time, he did it on the most recent episode of Joe Rogan Experience.
In this regard, Kanye West emphasized:
“The Bitcoiners, they are guys who really have a perspective on what the true liberation of America and humanity will be.”
He also added: “Jack dorsey, decentralized Twitter two months before the pandemic hit for real. Really, I’ve been talking to the Bitcoiners”.
“Specifically, these guys were able to use the new information highways. Also, create the new frontier of our existence.
