Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s ex-advisor talks about the blockchain technology as a way to bring “true freedom” to the population.
During an event in Zurich sponsored by the Swiss newspaper Die Weltwoche on Tuesday, M. Bannon explained that the financial and non-financial applications of blockchain can help manage personal data.
During a lecture in Switzerland, Bannon explained the importance of the decentralization with the technology:
“Central banks are in the business of debasing your currency. Central governments are in the business of debasing your citizenship. The central technology conglomerates are in the business of debasing your own personal sovereignty and your own personal data.”
Further more, he described the blockchain technology as the best tool to escape “financial elites”:
“We take control of the central banks away. That will give us the power again…Once you take control of your currency, once you take control of your data, once you take control of your citizenship, that’s when you’re going to have true freedom.”
He also added that the only way to disrupt “the globalized culture of economic oppression” is with nationalist and populist ideologies. Europeans at the conference supported his point of view regarding the future of cryptocurrency.
