Charlie Lee, creator of Litecoin, joins Michael Green of Thiel Macro to talk about how his background led him to digital currencies. Lee sees bitcoin as a better form of gold, and litecoin as the equivalent of silver in a new digital monetary system. This clip is excerpted from a video published on Real Vision on June 22, 2019 entitled “Behind the Creation of Litecoin.”

    wears "just hodl it" litecoin shirts, actively promotes the idea of litecoin as an investment, then sells 100% of his LTC holding near $300. The claims that this is an effort to be unbiased are nonsensical, that's like a CEO selling all their shares to be doesn't make sense, we want leaders to have skin in the game, we want them to be biased!--especially when they implied not selling was the best thing for everyone to do. When paying attention to Charlie Munger or Charlie Lee, the same rules apply: pay attention to what they do with their money, not what they say.

    The state does not need control of money? Without money & control over the creation of money what power does the state have? It's all about money & money is power.

    Nice to hear such a humble voice on the subject of bitcoin. Quite refreshing, even if not fully in agreement.
