  • Kanye West said in a recent interview about presidential election in 2020 that he’s really impressed with bitcoiners, or people who are into Bitcoin.

    Speaking with MMA fighter and comedian Joe Rogan on the latter’s podcast, Kanye West added people who are into bitcoin know how to truly liberate America and humanity. He explained that Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, had decentralized the platform because he talked to the “Bitcoin guys.”

    “And these are guys that really have a perspective on what the true liberation of America and humanity will be,” West said in Saturday’s episode of “TheJoe Rogan Experience.”

    “Specifically these guys … a lot of tech guys were able to use the new … information highways and create the next frontier of our existence,” he continued.

    Earlier this month, Dorsey’s other company, Square, bought 4,709 Bitcoin worth $50 million, a move that catapulted Square’s price to an all-time high. In a whitepaper, the company explained how it executed the Bitcoin purchase through an over-the-counter provider.

    Dorsey is a known advocate of BTC and said in a previous interview with The Times U.K. that it could be the world’s single currency in the future.

    Meanwhile, much of West’s interview with Rogan revolved around his presidential election as well as his insights on the political and financial systems. The rapper, who has sold 140 million records globally, announced his bid in July. And he confirmed during this interview that he’s still in the running.

    West said that he is listed in the ballot of 12 states. In 17 other states, voters can write him in. The Yeezy founder said that he could possibly win this year but added that he was more certain that he can win the 2024 election.

    West also revealed his preference for Bitcoin in previous interviews. In 2018, he stated that it was when he looked at the $20 bill that he first wanted to use Bitcoin. In that year, he tweeted “decentralize,” which Bitcoin Magazine said was a nod to the cryptocurrency industry.

    Bitcoin recently broke past $13,000 for the first time since three years ago, closing at $13,122 on Saturday and $13,040 the next day.
