    The FEDs will help drive Bitcoin to six figures with Richard Byworth, CEO of Diginex

    The last time Richard Byworth was on the podcast; Bitcoin was slowly pushing to $10,000. Now that it has exploded to 5x this figure, Byworth’s Diginex exchange has seen spectacular growth in every metric and yet, he still believes the leading digital asset is an opportunity not to be missed. His thesis suggests that governments, corporations, investment funds, and the FED will each play a unique role in driving Bitcoin’s price to a 6-figure cycle top.

    In this episode, Melker and Byworth discuss a range of topics including:

    Supply-side shock
    CFOs convincing their board to buy Bitcoin
    Peter Schiff capitulating
    Ethereum scam wicks
    Government seizures
    Exchanges running out of Bitcoin
    Apple’s secretive treasury
    A 175K cycle top
    Governments buying Bitcoin
