“If they had gold they would have to carry it in a sack and someone could steal that from them,” Lennon said.

The British- American musician added that Bitcoin has given him more optimism and happiness about his faith in the near future for humanity than anything else this year.

“In an ocean of destruction that was this year, I find bitcoin to give me a kind of optimism, to be honest,” he added.

Bitcoin “transcends the physical world,” he continued. “It means that you have total agency, you have total self-sovereignty and as long as you can remember your key phrase then you are good to go.”
