We see all of them having dinner with Binance’s CZ. And we see photographs of Ricardo Salinas and his son assembly President Bukele.
Anyway, let’s get to the bitcoin content material.
Bitcoin Is Creating The Chaos
In the present day’s session begins with a deal with. Max Keiser solutions what we deemed “the best questions of the whole conference” Bitcoin 2022. That’s: “Is Bitcoin inflicting the chaos on the earth, or reacting to the chaos?” What does Keiser thinks about his personal query? He instructed Salinas and us:
“To me it looks as if Bitcoin isn’t reacting to the chaos, however bitcoin is inflicting the chaos. As a result of, bitcoin modifications folks (…) It’s a mirror the place, in case you’re an individual with decency in your coronary heart, you grow to be extra respectable, and you concentrate on doing different benevolent issues. Should you’re an individual who’s obtained a coronary heart that’s not effectively , and you might be envious. It makes you extra envious, it makes you worse”.
To not be outshined, Ricardo Salinas shoots a dire prediction relating to the normal marketplace for the subsequent few years:
“What’s occurring to the fiat world is a shame. Now, folks which are anticipating a pension are going to be defrauded of their pension. Folks that have saved cash for his or her retirement, they’re not going to have the cash as a result of it’s not going to be there. It’s going to evaporate.”

Ricardo Salinas On Presiden Bukele
“He’s clearly a really sharp man, he’s younger, and he’s achieved these extraordinary issues. So, I must have a greater sense of the particular person. As a result of, no matter he says or does on media, it’s not the identical particular person,” Salinas stated about El Salvador’s president. The 2 would meet one or two days later. Salinas elaborated:
“I wish to perceive what he desires to do and the way he plans to do it. I wish to hear it from him. However clearly his capability to do issues in another way is clear (…) And this factor of getting Bitcoin being authorized tender in El Salvador, that modifications issues utterly, as a result of now it’s not simply an asset, now it’s actual cash. At the least in that jurisdiction.”
Ricardo Salinas And The Downside With Democracy
In an especially optimistic second, Max Keiser describes the present state of affairs. “It appears to me that there’s an epic battle between fiat cash, evil, and Bitcoin cash, which is one of the best soundest cash ever, it’s good. It’s good versus evil”. Ricardo Salinas is just not so positive, as a result of immediately’s system is backed by democracy. “This evil of fiat cash fraud is being sustained by a democratic course of, and it’s being voted into energy day by day,” Says Salinas convincingly. “That’s the issue with democracy, (…) majority rule isn’t any enjoyable”.

When questioned about “The Bitcoin Normal,” the e-book we’re studying in the Bitcoinist Book Club, Salinas declares it to be completely spot on concerning the Austrian Faculty of Economics perspective over the Keynesian one. “I feel the historic perspective is very invaluable. (…) This can be a must-read not solely to know Bitcoin, however to know the fiat fraud, as a result of it’s a must to perceive each,” Salinas additionally claims.
When questioned about Peter Shiff and his father, gold bugs till the top, Salinas continues to be respectful of the earlier king. “Having gold is just not a nasty thought, having all the pieces in gold is a nasty asset allocation. Talking trash about bitcoin is a nasty thought.” And by that, he signifies that if Shiff centered on selling gold and never on criticizing bitcoin, he wouldn’t be making a idiot of himself.
And that’s about it. How a lot did we study from Ricardo Salinas?
