It’s interesting to see there is consensus building (even in traditional circles) that the current system is broken or at least suboptimal.
But, at the same time, people not sold on bitcoin as the answer are looking for an alternative to the current system, but anywhere besides bitcoin.[Dalio almost figures it out](https://twitter.com/DocumentingBTC/status/1621144000425267200)
I think the acknowledgment that there needs to/should be a change to the current monetary system is massive for bitcoin adoption.
Once this view becomes common knowledge (ie. your barber is complaining about the monetary system), bitcoin has its chance for mass adoption.
A new system is needed, and the technology now exists to create that new system. What it will look like is anyone’s guess, but bitcoin has a shot.
Who knows if it will happen (a lot of roadblocks ahead), but it will be compelling to watch it play out.
Interesting, thanks for posting. Recognition that our money is broken by loud voices is a good thing, yes. However, this clip demonstrates that Ray has little to no understanding of bitcoin and the statements he made will likely deter his many followers from bitcoin; “*Inflation resistant coin/ bond”*?? (I hope he’s not actually serious about that). He’s made his billions, doesn’t care, and CNBC will be happy to continue airing remnants of the past to perpetuate a dying system.
I’ve also seen a shift in how the TV hosts for all these news and financial shows talk about it. It feels like after all the interviews and time they’ve spent on Bitcoin a few of them have become orange pilled. They were laughing in Jamie Dimon’s face last time he was on and bashing Bitcoin.
