Some of crypto’s most influential people headlined the second day of Bitcoin 2021 Miami, offering words of wisdom about the future of decentralization, privacy and financial inclusion.
Day 2 began with a panel discussion centered around Bitcoin’s macro landscape, where Morgan Creek Digital founder Mark Yusko drew attention to the destruction of the dollar caused by the Federal Reserve’s endless money printing. “Thirty-nine percent of all dollars were created in the last 12 months,” he said, adding that the U.S. dollar is “the biggest shitcoin of them all.”
The heavy panel discussion surrounding Bitcoin and monetary policy was followed by legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk discussing what happens when a counterculture goes mainstream. “It was very fast, it was international, for me it was the future of finance,” he said of Bitcoin. “I did buy Bitcoin in 2012.”
