Kanye West once again took some time to answer Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. He did so this time at the Joe Rogan Experience, which on October 24th, published an episode with the world-famous artist and designer.
A variety of topics were covered in the three hours that Kayne West was on Joe Rogan’s world-famous podcast. Interestingly, the mix also included Bitcoin and crypto properties.
The West has spoken about Bitcoin in the past. In an interview with Charlamagne in 2018, he said he sees the asset as a place to put their cash. Along with credit cards and cash, he called the cryptocurrency.
In this latest interview with Rogan, the artist and presidential candidate said that he’s been talking about Bitcoin and crypto with his friends recently. In preparation for the Rogan interview, he said he did so. For background, Joe Rogan has long been a supporter of cryptocurrencies, many times hosting Bitcoin evangelist Andreas Antonopoulos and prompting guests on the subject, including Jack Dorsey.
West clarified that he finds it so fascinating that Bitcoin supporters have an understanding of America and humanity’s real emancipation.
“A lot of the tech guys can use these new highways, these new information highways, to create the next frontier of humanity.”
Also involved in Bitcoin is West’s friend Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX. Before elaborating in later comments that the coin might have value today due to the inflation of the U.S. dollar and other fiat money, he once called the cryptocurrency structure brilliant.
