Reported by Cointelegraph, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman has called Bitcoin a “super logical” step on the tech tree, which is free of government control and helps to fight corruption.
“I’m excited about Bitcoin,” Altman told Joe Rogan during an Oct. 6 episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
“I think this idea that we have a global currency that is outside of the control of any government is a super logical and important step on the tech tree.“
Altman, who is also the founder of Worldcoin, said the shift to a “technologically enabled world,” including Bitcoin, could help reduce corruption.
Altman has been a long-time supporter of Bitcoin. In a blog post dated 10 years ago, Altman argued that a world transacting in Bitcoin would be more transparent.
“A world where we all transact in Bitcoin would be much more transparent, and financial transparency is great. It’s perhaps the thing that would most reduce corruption,” Altman said.
