Not Taking the Time to Learn About Bitcoin is “Europe’s Biggest Risk”

This comes from European politician Christophe De Beukelaer who is the first to receive his entire salary in Bitcoin

Not taking the time to learn about BTC is ‘Europe’s biggest risk,’ says Belgian MP

“When asked about how long it took to get to grips with Bitcoin and ‘go down the rabbit hole,’ De Beukelaer said that not taking the time to learn about the protocol is ‘One of the biggest risks we have in Europe for the moment.’ He explained:

‘The political people don’t take time for this journey. They are very busy with the day-to-day administrations of the cities and the countries, but they don’t stop and say, OK, what’s happening now? What are the big evolutions coming in the next 10, 20, 50 years? And that’s the job.’

The 34-year-old Brussels Minister conceded that the lack of awareness surrounding the cryptocurrency and Bitcoin space is a ‘big problem,’ and that if Europe doesn’t get its hands dirty with the cryptocurrency space, then “’ [or] the U.S. will decide everything.’”
