I love CZ. I gotta tell you, I really do. Never met him, saw him speak, been in his presence.
Someday our paths will cross.
While internecine fighting breaks out amid crypto & blockchain projects in an embarrassing daily manner, there’s CZ wearing a Chicago BlackHawks jersey with James Radecki; high-fiving Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on social media for saying BTC would become the currency of the Internet; announcing his exchange will accept credit cards to buy digital assets – a truly radical idea.
And today: “For any internet (non-physical) based business, I don’t understand why anyone would not accept crypto for payments. It is easier, faster & cheaper to integration than traditional payment gateways. Less paperwork. And reaches more diverse demographic and geography.”
CZ’s a pioneer; a seer.
The entire size of cryptos is like the marketing or developing team at Apple or Amazon. And all you get are busy-body myopic managers fighting turf wars; it’s sad.
Then there’s CZ: he knows WeChat is the money transmitter in China; he knows he has customers in every country; he knows fiat currencies are an unworkable idea in a global economy where most countries can’t balance their books & debt woes are a ticking time bomb.
He’s a man to admire; one to watch.
