Not sure how many readers read FT (especially their Alphaville), I do believe Jemima visits this subreddit…
>As I have said in every interview that I’ve ever done about the topic, I became more open minded about bitcoin – and only bitcoin – because I finally understood the problem it might potentially be solving in society. That problem is offering a hedge against a world of CBDCs and total government-controlled money linked to identity and social behaviour.
>This is why I limited my pro-crypto stance to bitcoin alone, comparing myself if anything to a bitcoin maximalist. And my position was pretty clear: as a rule bitcoin serves society best if it exists in the background as a last resort system which never has to be used. This is because it simply cannot compete with the efficiency of a centralised system. The best comparison in my mind is to think of it as a financial “right to bear arms”, which can be funded for the benefit of all by the most diehard enthusiasts who can afford it. I stick with that metaphor today.
She quit FT and started her own platform “The Bind Spot”, I wish her success.
