The world renowned artist, Akon, who recently reinstated his presence in the music industry with the release of new Latin single, Como No, has again echoed his commitment towards cryptocurrency while playing down on the U.S. dollar.
While refuting Bitcoin naysayers in a radio interview on Sept. 10, the one time Grammy award winner aired his preference for Bitcoin, adding that cryptocurrency is more stable than fiat currency.
While playing down on fiat currency, Akon said it is the U.S. government that makes us feel Dollar is worth anything; whereas, it is backed by nothing.
“Nothing backs the dollar. The U.S. doesn’t have natural resources that back the dollar. What they do have is the military,” Akon said.
The artist said other countries have gold, diamond and other natural resources that back their currencies to make us understand their worth.
“The U.S. has nothing,” Akon added.
Akon further claimed that Bitcoin is a digital currency that can be used to purchase lots of things like Ferrari, house and whatever we want because it has equal value as the U.S. dollar.
