Bitcoin Is The "Ultimate Anti-Lockdown Investment" Says Nigel Farage

• by Marie Huillet

he United Kingdom Tory Party's nemesis, Nigel Farage, has gone "full crypto." 

On Nov. 27, Farage sat down for a video interview to discuss all things crypto with Sam Volkering, the editor of Southbank Investment Research, which is, notably, the publisher of Farage's recently launched investor newsletter "Fortune & Freedom." 

In the interview, Farage derided the government's "funny money," which it continues to print throughout the pandemic at warp speed, and concluded that it's therefore "crucially important" to get one's head around crypto. 

"It's the subject everyone's talking about," said Farage.

"From the poorest to the richest in the land, one of the conversations that are going on is about cryptocurrency. The reason is all too obvious: it's that governments are, through this pandemic, creating vast amounts of funny money, debasing currencies, and people are scared about what this means for their money, their investments."

He has elsewhere called Bitcoin "the ultimate anti-lockdown investment," pointedly on-brand for his newly-launched Reform UK party.

Farage and Volkering's video interview is apparently just the first in a series, which will educate viewers about how to buy crypto, how to store it and keep it safe.
