Download Podcast | Subscribe

That central banks should buy Bitcoin is an increasingly common aspect of the narrative surrounding cryptocurrencies. In late 2015, two economists from the University of the West Indies in Barbados published research on Bitcoin as an important addition to the Central Bank of Barbados' asset portfolio.

Jeremy Stephen, one of the authors, joins me today to explain his interest in Bitcoin and the case for central banks owning Bitcoin. Among other things, Jeremy also discusses the similarities between gold and Bitcoin, permissioned blockchains, his bullishness for Ethereum, and how he answers his students who ask him when to buy Bitcoin.
