(Kitco News) – As governments, corporations, and NGOs implement a Great Reset to “control” individuals and communities, the best way to protect wealth is through Bitcoin, said Guy Turner, Co-Founder of Coin Bureau.
“The end game [of The Great Reset] is control… to influence how we live our lives, influence how we spend, and where we spend,” he told Michelle Makori, Editor-in-Chief and Lead Anchor at Kitco News. “I think the best way to insure yourself against this future, but to also profit from it, is to buy Bitcoin.”
Turner explained that Bitcoin is “beyond the control of any government or wider organization,” and is “the best weapon the individual has” against the Great Reset.
Turner spoke with Makori at the Future Blockchain Summit in Dubai.
The Great Reset and CBDCs
World Economic Forum CEO Klaus Schwab popularized the “Great Reset” concept, which calls for increasingly centralized control over the economy to de-carbonize the planet and promote sustainable development.
Critics claim that the World Economic Forum and other powerful bodies are using The Great Reset to exert control over the economy, abolish private property and crush human rights through digital IDs, Central Bank Digital Currencies and carbon credits, amongst other tools.
“The Great Reset is very much about how stakeholder capitalism can take root… and a lot of it is about control and surveillance,” said Turner. “This is where CBDCs come in. The idea of being able to see what people are spending, when they’re spending, what they’re spending it on, and even put limits on those things, is one of the scariest parts of it.”
CBDCs, or Central Bank Digital Currencies, are digital tokens issued and controlled by a central bank. It has been proposed that CBDCs be tied to carbon credits, to restrict people’s purchases of carbon-guzzling products.
“Let’s say you exceed your yearly carbon allowance,” suggested Turner. “Then you can’t do this, you can’t do that. But you can do that if you just purchase more carbon credits. It’s about extracting money from everyday people.”
Although he claimed that people “won’t have a choice” about adopting CBDCs, Turner pointed to Bitcoin as a way to hedge against the impending Great Reset.
“There will be this huge global movement of people who want to transact privately,” he explained. “I think they will be transacting in Bitcoin.”
Turner said that Bitcoin will become “one of the most sought-after assets” by the 2030s or 2040s.
“It is something that is open to everyone,” he said. “[It is] trustless, permissionless… but what’s crucial is that anyone with an internet connection can buy Bitcoin. For me, that’s what’s so exciting.”
