What arguments did Pliego make? The entrepreneur believes that decentralized bitcoin is poorly controlled and prohibited by the authorities. In addition, the asset can be easily moved around the world, transferring value directly between users without intermediaries. As for traditional assets such as gold or fiat currencies, they can be seized by the authorities.

The billionaire also emphasized that the limited issuance makes bitcoin a deflationary asset, allowing it to be used as a means of preserving value over the long term.
