John Lennon's Son Says Bitcoin Empowers People, Gives Him Optimism in Ocean of Destruction

Sean Ono Lennon, the son of the Beatles’ John Lennon, says bitcoin gives him optimism amid the “ocean of destruction” this year. He believes that the cryptocurrency empowers individuals the way they have never been empowered before.

Bitcoin Gives Sean Lennon Optimism

Sean Ono Lennon is the son of the Beatles’ lead vocalist, John Lennon, and Japanese singer Yoko Ono. Sean talked about bitcoin with Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert on the Orange Pill podcast published Sunday.

After discussing several aspects of bitcoin and many events that happened this year, Lennon opined, “it’s such an interesting time and so many things have been flipped upside down.” The British-American musician and songwriter said: “honestly talking to you guys about bitcoin is one of the only things this year that has given me more optimism and happiness about my faith in the near future and just humanity in general.” Lennon continued:

I do feel like ultimately bitcoin is something that empowers individuals. It empowers people in a way they’ve never been empowered before.

Lennon proceeded to compare bitcoin to gold, presenting several reasons that the cryptocurrency is better than gold. Recently, many other investors have come to the same conclusion, including famed hedge fund managers Paul Tudor Jones, Bill Miller, and Stan Druckenmiller.

“Even if they have gold, they would have to carry that in a sack and someone could just steal it from them. But something that transcends the physical world it means that you have total agency you have total self-sovereignty and … as long as you can remember your key phrase then you are good to go,” Lennon described to Keiser and Herbert. He concluded:

In an ocean of destruction that was this year, I find bitcoin to give me a kind of optimism.
