Former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon says Cryptocurrency Equals “True Freedom”

Steve Bannon formerly Donald Trump ’s chief strategist talked exceptionally high about the future of cryptocurrencies this week.

Once you take control of your currency, once you take control of your data, once you take control of your citizenship, that’s when you’re going to have true freedom.

Feeding into the populist movement spreading throughout Europe, Bannon made it clear that decentralized digital currencies can be used as a tool in the European anti-establishment campaign, according to CoinTelegraph. Bannon went on to say:

Cryptos and the blockchain will “empower [the populist] movement, empower companies, [and] empower governments to get away from the central banks that debase your currency and makes slave wages, we take control of the central banks away. That will give us the power again.

Bannon stated that these advancements would free the people from the establishment as Bannon also accused governments, central banks, and tech companies of overstepping the rights of everyday citizens to push different agendas.

Bannon is currently on a speaking tour in Europe, many of his events are sold out.
