As a part of his comment, he mentions that nowadays, there are some people who are excited regarding Bitcoins, and he thinks that in the coming years, Bitcoins will be the only existing money. It will take the place of the dollar, and at that time, it will not be worthy.
Ron Paul made a strong statement and said that the government is not going to grant Bitcoin or any other thing to engage and take the place of the Dollar. He also added that the public must have the freedom to make their choices.
He also described one of the bills that were started and introduced by him in Congress, which was regarding the auditing of the Fed and getting free of legal tender laws. He revealed his utter desire to make the competition between Bitcoin and Dollar legal and to allow people to come to a conclusion. It was also said that in this competition, the freedom to choose would solve the whole situation fairly.
Paul made a point that he is worried about the power and command that their government has over the dollar, which is the official money. This is entirely notorious and he also included that their government is not going to give this command over money that they have.
In the interview, he was asked to explain his meaning when he said to make the competition legal. To this, he said that as of now, if anyone purchases or sells gold, the government charges taxes on it. But, if you have made a gain in bitcoin, then they can’t tax the same.
