One of the world’s best-selling artists is giving Bitcoin (BTC) a big shoutout, referring to the top cryptocurrency as the liberator of America and humanity.
In a new installment of the widely-subscribed Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Kanye West compares Bitcoin to Jack Dorsey’s Bluesky initiative which seeks to decentralize technical standards for social media platforms.
“Jack Dorsey decentralized Twitter two months before it really hit because he was talking to the Bitcoin guys, and these are guys that really have a perspective on what the true liberation of America and humanity will be. A lot of the tech guys were able to use the new highways, the new information highways, and create the next frontier of our existence while the powers of our political system are still anchoring on the electoral college which was based around slavery.”
In July, the crypto-friendly rap superstar revealed his intentions to run for president of the United States. The announcement on Twitter immediately went viral, garnering 500,000 retweets and 1,000,000 likes over the course of a weekend.
“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION.”
In 2018, the award-winning rapper tweeted out “decentralize,” sending shockwaves through the crypto and blockchain community.

In the same podcast, West says he believes it is his “calling to be the leader of the free world.”
