Speaking to Cointelegraph among the sandcastles at the Surfin’ Bitcoin 2022 event at Casino de Biarritz in France on Thursday, Prince Philip said he was “optimistic about bitcoin” in part because of the impact could have on the education of children around the world. . The prince, who describes himself as a bitcoin (BTC) fan, revealed that part of his keynote speech at the cryptocurrency conference – only the second he has been a speaker – will focus on making people aware of the potential benefits . of bitcoin.
“Young people need to understand what bitcoin is,” said Prince Philip. “The main issue is the money story – it’s something we weren’t taught at school […] education is getting worse, as I see it”.
Citing an example from his own family, Prince Philip said that his four-year-old son Stefan tried to develop certain ideas about bitcoin by watching his father:
“He’s trying to figure out what bitcoin is […] He understands that bitcoin exists and that his father likes to talk about it”.
Filip Karađorđević, Prince of Serbia and Yugoslavia, also known as Philip Karageorgevich, says that there is a lack of education regarding cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.
Prince Philip joked that he was rebuilding in the middle of a bear market, and built a sandcastle on the beach at the center before being knocked over by a passer-by. In July, he said that the adoption of bitcoin was inevitable for all countries whose citizens practice Islam because “it is a perfect currency for Sharia.”
The BTC-maximizer, though still a public figure due to his title, rose to prominence for many in the crypto space after an interview in March in which he said, “Bitcoin is freedom. , and that’s what I want for everyone. He also participated in the Miami Bitcoin conference in 2022. However, the Prince indicated that he does not have the authority to declare cryptocurrency as legal tender, as El Salvador did in September 2021.
