Sean Ono Lennon, the son of John Lennon, believes that Bitcoin empowers people in a way they haven’t experienced before.
In a recent conversation with Max Keiser, Lennon also noted that BTC is a breath of optimism in an otherwise destructive year.
Lennon: Bitcoin Empowers People
The son of the founder and co-lead vocalist of the Beatles, John Lennon, is a British-American musician and songwriter with several albums. Apart from following his father’s footsteps in music, Sean Ono Lennon is apparently a Bitcoin supporter.
While appearing on the Orange Pill Podcast, hosted by Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert, Lennon admitted that he first purchased bitcoins years ago. However, he made a rookie mistake, forgot his passwords and key phrases, and ultimately lost his initial BTC investment.
Despite his adverse experience with the asset, though, he has remained a believer in its merits.
“Bitcoin is something that empowers individuals in a way they haven’t been empowered before. Even if they had gold, they would have to carry it in a sack, and someone could just steal it from them.
However, something that transcends the physical world means that you have total agency, you have total self-sovereignty. As long as you can remember your key phrase, then you are good to go.”
Bitcoin Gives Me Optimism: Lennon
Lennon also discussed the events that transpired in 2020. More specifically, he talked about the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on the world population.
Amid all the negativity that arose this year, though, he has found optimism in Bitcoin.
“In an ocean of destruction that was this year, I found Bitcoin to give me kind of optimism, to be honest.”
Lennon and Keiser also touched upon the topic of if and how Bitcoin could ultimately disrupt the traditional financial system. The musician seemed hesitant about how governments would counteract such a significant change to remain in power.
However, the popular TV host asserted that many people inside those institutions will become supporters of BTC. Such a prime example emerged recently as the state of Wyoming elected Cynthia Lummis as its Senator.
Lummis is a long-term Bitcoin HODLer who plans to introduce BTC to her colleagues. She recently noted that she wants “to make sure everybody understands this [Bitcoin] is a great store of value.”
