They note that Bitcoin is decentralized, permissionless, and open-source, and that these three qualities are key to Bitcoin’s success. Krieger also believes that Bitcoin is increasingly becoming more political, and he notes that the only 2 major political movements in this day and age are localism and Bitcoin.
