Bill Gates says cryptocurrency is one innovation the world could do without - MarketWatch

Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder and technological whiz turned philanthropist, may not be a fan of bitcoin and digital-assets.

Asked during an interview published on Thursday with The Wall Street Journal what technological advancement the world could do without, Gates had this to say:

“The way cryptocurrency works today allows for certain criminal activities. It’d be good to get rid of that,” he quickly added: “I probably should have said bio weapons. That’s a really bad thing.”

Billy Boy is wrong as he can be about this. Bitcoin and other cryptos might IMHO be one of few things that allow one to opt out the whole Davos-inspired so-called Great Reset. Personally, I would like to be able to buy a latte or a bottle of wine without it affecting my social credit score a la their whole central bank digital currency scam. No, I don't think it will come to that. I'm not a conspiracy theorist. But only because I'm an optimist and because of things like Bitcoin. I'm only saying that that *appears* to be the world Gates and his ilk want. But good old-fashioned democracy will prevent it, I hope and pray. Why Gates can't just drink himself to death in his hot tub like any other decent billionaire would do, I don't know.

I have this recurring dream where Bill is preaching hellfire and brimstone to a congregation of Deplorables. Or maybe it was a tv interview I'm recalling over and over.
