Mike Hobart returns for Episode 30 with “Bitcoin Bottom Line” co-host CJ Wilson for a live broadcast of the Bitcoin22 conference.

The two begin by discussing the conference, meeting celebrities from the bitcoin space, and the approaching one-year anniversary of El Salvador announcing its intention to make bitcoin legal tender. Hobart said: “The El Salvador who made the move was like the only person willing to go against the grain. Since this country doesn’t have a history of innovation in this way, people didn’t follow them right away. Wilson replied, “Things change.”

The two then discuss the role bitcoin plays in the current war between Russia and Ukraine, and how the currency helps the Ukrainian government. Wilson goes on to mention, “If the government runs out of FUD [fear uncertainty and doubt] weapons, and bitcoin grows at the same time, you’re going to have more voices that can attack those FUD vectors faster.

Hobart shares posting an article via Bitcoin Magazine in which he interviewed one of Bitcoin Twitter’s favorite female personalities, HumbleWarrior, and she explained how bitcoin made her value health in a new way. “With health, everything is proof of work,” he continues, “if we don’t have new children to grow the economy, in terms of not just consumption but new thoughts and ideas, we’re not solving not the problems.”
