Andreas Antonopoulos: why banks call Bitcoiners


Video with the speech of Andreas Antonopoulos under the name "Money as a System of Control", undoubtedly, should be watched by every follower of bitcoin. In it, Antonopoulos explains how money is used to control their senders and recipients, as well as tracking financial transactions around the world. In addition, he tells how false the banking system really is. Banks can not only freeze or confiscate money without our consent, in fact, they are the owners of our finances, we are simply granted access to them - and this, to put it mildly, is a dishonest deal. As explained by Antonopoulos, we do not have money in the bank, we have only an account that gives us access to the money that we placed in the bank, believing fake security guarantees. This situation is demonstrated by a brilliant example of the debt crisis in Greece - the entire population of the country kept savings in banks and they were insured, but one day the promise was violated and money was rendered inaccessible.
