Coinbase in the news

Brian Armstrong, the CEO of Coinbase, has shared his belief that Bitcoin (BTC) could potentially prolong the existence of Western civilization.

In a recent post on social media platform X, Armstrong stated that it is a natural trend for countries that produce the world’s reserve currency to inflate the money supply and increase deficit spending until they lose their currency advantage.

Armstrong claims that the US is currently undergoing this process, but he argues that other fiat currencies are not yet ready to take on the reserve mantle.

“The yuan and euro have their own issues and aren’t viable alternatives currently, so the assumption is the US can continue to inflate, but what I think many haven’t considered is that people have an alternative now with crypto. They may start moving fiat into crypto, as an antidote to inflation.”
