Joe Rogan has “a lot of hope” for cryptocurrencies, but mostly Bitcoin, though he said he doesn’t understand it very well.
The podcaster interviewed internet entrepreneur and podcast pioneer Adam Curry on the 1760th episode of The Joe Rogan Experience show on January 8, talking about Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, the metaverse, and beyond.
“What we’re seeing right now is, it’s either going to fall apart completely or we’re going to use this as an opportunity to right the ship and come up with a better way to live our lives,” Rogan said after mentioning that he sees Bitcoin and Ethereum as the two main projects.
Curry highlighted how he is a sole believer in Bitcoin and dismisses most of the other cryptocurrencies, because BTC is the only project with an actual limited and unchangeable supply, which according to him is a central and dividing aspect in his assessment of cryptocurrencies.
“The difference between Bitcoin and Ethereum is that in Bitcoin there will only be 21 million, it cannot be changed,” Curry explained.
“It cannot be inflated, and you cannot say the same for Ethereum.”
“I’m just on the Bitcoin train because I believe my money is safer there,” Curry said.
“The money system is broken, it causes inflation, misery, it causes wars because it’s linked to oil, so we have to protect all that.”
The internet entrepreneur added that “there’s no CEO of Bitcoin,” which prompted Rogan to ask whether Ethereum had one.
“If you look at the history of [Ethereum], changes can be made,” Curry responded.
After that, Bitcoinist reports that Joe Rogan considers a future with big companies each creating their own private coins that act as stock of sorts. Curry stops him and tells him Facebook tried that and the governments wouldn’t allow it.
“That’s not the plan. The plan is the Central Bank Digital Currency. You will have crypto. You will have a digital wallet. It will be directly from the Federal Reserve to you,” Adam Curry says.
Then, they’ll have total control. However, Bitcoin fixes this.
