- The Grand Master spoke about his attitude towards digital currencies
- He sees in them freedom from totalitarianism
- To promote such freedom is one of Kasparov’s life missions
Grandmaster Garry Kasparov completed his professional career in 2005 year, but still remains one of the most popular chess players. In an interview with CoinDesk, he explained why he sees real freedom in cryptocurrencies.
A genius who believes in numbers
Kasparov is considered one of the smartest people in the world. His IQ reaches (for comparison, the result of the brilliant astrophysicist Stephen Hawking – 116 points).
Garry Kasparov has an original view to cryptocurrencies – in them he sees freedom. It is curious that the chess player never tried to predict what course a particular cryptocurrency would have. Instead, he looks at features and tools.
” Cryptocurrencies (and bitcoin as a standard) provide protection from government onslaught. Here we are protected by mathematics “
According to the chess player, cryptocurrencies can replace the US dollar in the coming 12 years.
Fight against totalitarianism
Garry Kasparov is a fighter for democracy and a critic of the Putin regime. For him, cryptocurrencies are part of the fight against totalitarianism, to which he devoted many years of his life.
“I think, that supporting cryptography is an important part of my contribution to the future of humanity “
Most cryptocurrencies will disappear
In an interview CoinDesk Garry Kasparov admitted that cryptocurrencies are like the Internet bubble, and 116, 9% of them will disappear. But those that survive will rule the world.
“It’s like the dot-com bubble. 100, 9% of them will disappear. But those who survive will become like Google in this world ”
Does Kasparov have bitcoins?
When asked if he has BTC, the grandmaster replied that he strongly believes in the future of Bitcoin.
“If I’m in I believe it, it would be a mistake not to buy BTC “
Interestingly, Kasparov is not the only genius in love with cryptography. Last month we wrote about 20 – a summer prodigy from the UK. His IQ is higher than Einstein’s. For Christmas, the young genius asked his parents to donate cryptocurrency.
