TPB93 – Democrats need a Bitcoin Strategy with Jason Maier

“Bitcoin is going to do just fine. The adoption will keep going and the understanding will keep going. And the politicians will slowly come on board as the voters do.” – Jason Maier

My guest today is Jason Maier. Jason is a high school math teacher, educator, and author of “A Progressive’s Case for Bitcoin.” In this episode we discusses the political landscape of Bitcoin, focusing on Trump’s recent Bitcoin-friendly stance and its implications. We explore the need for a Democratic Bitcoin strategy, the importance of grassroots education, and how Bitcoin aligns with progressive values, emphasizing its potential for global financial inclusion and environmental benefits. In a crucial election year, these issues, and bitcoin education for everyone, including progressives and democrats, is more important than ever.
