On Tuesday (January 5), Canadian tech influencer Lewis George Hilsenteger, whose YouTube channel “Unbox Therapy” has nearly 18 million subscribers, talked about Bitcoin.
He started by saying that Bitcoin had gone mainstream:
“Bitcoin is mainstream… Everybody is talking to me about Bitcoin. Just in my life, outside of the internet… The word has tremendous buzz…“
He then explained why he thinks there is currently so much interest in Bitcoin:
“You have, of course, governments are writing up all types of stimulus packages to combat the Covid effect on the economy in various world economies, and people are doing what people do. They’re looking at the stock market, they’re looking at gold, they’re looking everywhere in an effort to try to escape the potential inflation that could come along with these enormous stimulus packages…
“Bitcoin is one of those places. It’s futuristic and limited… Bitcoin is just perfect for right now, and so we’re seeing that the value [is] skyrocketing… So, anyway, Bitcoin is super hot…
“It is such a bizarre psychology, though, for me, because it seems hard to buy right now, but yet it isn’t for so many people… There is no doubt that there’s tremendous hype around Bitcoin right now…“
