Crypto, the Inevitable Force Behind the Liberty Movement, with Spike Cohen [Video]

Do you sometimes feel like there is no hope for a free society?

In many ways this may appear to be true. But, what if crypto was the answer we’ve been waiting for to achieve this “free society”? And if so, how?

During the Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) conference in August, I was fortunate to have been able to speak with Spike Cohen – an iconic leader within the Liberty Movement.

This may have been the most encouraging and profound interview that the TCV team and I conducted during the event!

Spike was the VP candidate alongside Jo Jorgensen for the Libertarian party in the 2020 US Presidential election. Since then, he has been consistent in building a culture of freedom driven activism with his community You Are The Power.

When I asked, “What role does cryptocurrency play in this activism,” Spike shared that “…the enemy of freedom is centralized coercion… and I think that DeFi and cryptocurrency is the way out of this…”

It was great to see how knowledgeable he was about this technology and its applicable use cases. To be honest, there was only ONE other crypto related speaker at this entire 3 day conference. And man, did we make our presence known!

The team and I felt it was important to get our boots on the ground to share the benefits of blockchain tech as it relates to freedom.  We also thought it was important for us to understand their perspectives since they are the freedom fighters of the future.

As important as the technology is, I encourage you to listen to Spike’s insights as to the individual mind shifts necessary to truly make crypto work for our society.  

Without the Liberty Movement there is no Bitcoin!  Libertarian environments, like the YAL conference, were the birthplace of the crypto revolution.  It was a joy to go back home and reconnect with our past and future!

As depicted on the video thumbnail, Spike and I shared a laugh at the unfolding of how sh*tty Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) really are.

Spike made this brutal observation in jest, “There is no argument for fiat currency derived from the government, other than… we will kill you, or imprison you if you don’t use it.”

The same type of argument will likely be applied to these government cryptos (CBDCs), should they come to fruition. We at TCV see this as inevitable.

But, regardless, that’s why it is SO important to begin learning now about the projects that do support true decentralization by way of extreme capitalism and extreme privacy.

Here at The Crypto Vigilante, we research, thoroughly assess, recommend, and follow only a handful of cryptos and we even share how to use them with top operational security practices.

It turns out that we are just hours away from going LIVE with our next TCV Summit: Hardware Basics Edition virtual event this Friday, September 23rd, which starts at 11am Eastern time (New York).

Here we will dive even deeper into these most important hardware practices; there is still time to register!
