According to Fenton, the current monetary system is broken, citing the Federal Reserve’s policy of printing more money. He claimed that the Bitcoin supply cap competes with the dollar.
“We don’t need politicians to tell us what money is throughout human history. For thousands of years, people have been discovering it, whether it’s gold, silver or Bitcoin, and the fact is that our money right now is broken. Politicians broke it. They have unlimited money that they can print out of thin air without liability.”Fenton said.
“Everyone should have the freedom to choose better money. If they choose to do so, I choose Bitcoin. I recommend that other people also choose something else because the dollar is a melting ice cube.”
