“Bitcoin is primed to be the new base money in this digital age.”
Cryptocurrency enthusiast Matthew Menziskis joins Tatiana on this episode of The Tatiana Show. He is a co-host of the Crypto Voices podcast which discusses the economy and monetary policy, banking and finance, and Bitcoin. He is an American of Latvian descent who has resided in Eastern Europe since 2006. Matthew consults investors across many different fields from real estate to food and beverage to online direct lending industries.
Matthew became interested in Bitcoin around 2011 and created the Crypto Voices podcast in 2017 with his partner Fernando Ulrich. We discuss his recent presentation at the Baltic Honey Badger Conference entitled “Bitcoin as Base Money.” He provides an overview of the speech and describes the characteristics of a monetary base and how Bitcoin can replace government fiat as the new base going forward.
We talk about the progress made by the Baltic states of Eastern Europe in free market economics and the role of the U.S. in providing military aid to these countries. Matthew provides an interesting anecdote on Polish gold during World War II and Nazi Germany’s attempts at seizing their supply. He recalls the incredible logistical efforts the Polish went through to keep the money out of the Nazis’ hands.
