The key tool of central bankers and governments is perception management. This is what enables voluntary wealth transfer, but it requires confidence. Global confidence in governments and central bankers has been declining creating a threat to their control over the global financial system.

In 2008, the debt based system died and these same central bankers put it on life support until in next money standard (digital) could be put in place. Bitcoin was introduced in 2009, the technology was embraced by corporations and bankers in 2016 and is currently testing $7,000 fiat dollars.

It’s been sold as a gold alternative, limited supply, outside of the system and untouchable by central banks. Many have embraced this concept. But what if this is simply a tool of perception management? Is it possible that cryptocurrencies are being used as a tool to transfer even more of our wealth?

We know that global power is also in a state of transition from the US (West) to China (East). So what are the smartest guys doing for themselves? Do you want to know?
