Bitcoin Bounces on a Lot of Noise

Real Vision - The Defiant ·
Featuring Ash Bennington, Camila Russo and Robin Schmidt

What’s driving Bitcoin’s recent price action? Does it have anything to do with India’s plan to launch a digital rupee? Is it Russia’s move to recognize crypto? And what’s happening in Washington D.C. with regard to regulation? Robin Schmidt and Camila Russo of The Defiant join Real Vision’s Ash Bennington to unpack those issues and more – including the fact that Bitcoin is simply a volatile asset right now. Robin shares details of a conversation he had just yesterday with a high-profile American politician about U.S. lawmakers’ approach to crypto. The team also digs into scandals rocking the ecosystem, including the Solana bailout, ENS ousting Brantly Millegan over past tweets, and, of course, the chaotic (humorous? fun? crazy?) mess that is the fallout from the Bitfinex hack. Recorded on February 9, 2022.
