On the latest episode of the SlateCast, CryptoSlate welcomed Samson Mow, CEO and founder of Jan3, a pioneer in nation-state Bitcoin adoption. Mow, the man behind Aqua Bitcoin and the architect of the innovative Bitcoin bonds, joined Senior Editor Liam “Akiba” Wright and CryptoSlate CEO Nate Whitehill to discuss his vision of hyper-Bitcoinization. In this world, Bitcoin is at the core of our economic system, challenging us to rethink financial sovereignty.

The Case for Bitcoin

Mow’s dedication to advancing Bitcoin and financial freedom globally stems from his belief in the transformative power of the decentralized currency. Samson stated:

“Bitcoin will have a transformative effect on the world, much like the internet.”

Mow envisions a future where individuals can earn money and access financial opportunities regardless of their location or socioeconomic status, democratizing wealth creation on a global scale.

Mow explained:

“Just imagine that level of economic prosperity and development, but with people able to earn money anywhere in the world on the same level as a billionaire in the US or someone that can access US financial markets or buy US real estate.”

The Inevitability of Layer 2 Solutions

As the adoption of Bitcoin grows, Mow believes that layer 2 solutions will become increasingly necessary to accommodate the growing demand. He said:

“Layer 2’s are an inevitability because simply Bitcoin base layer won’t be able to serve everyone.”

Mow highlighted the limited supply of Bitcoin and the need for abstraction layers to facilitate widespread usage.

“Given that we already have ETFs that have gobbled up a big chunk of it, MicroStrategy has a big chunk, Tether has a big chunk, and a lot of whales have a big chunk, it’s not likely we’ll get to that level of distribution. So you have to use something else, and people will likely end up using some abstraction layer, layer 2, layer 3, to hold their Bitcoin down the road,” Mow explained.

The Million-Dollar Bitcoin Prediction

One of the most intriguing points raised by Mow was his prediction of Bitcoin reaching a million dollars in value within a short time frame. This prediction is premised on the belief that the fiat system is failing, with trillions of dollars being printed daily. Mow argued:

“If you’re printing a billion, ten billion dollars a day in debt, what is a million-dollar Bitcoin? That’s not really insane, right?”

Mow sees the continued inflows from spot Bitcoin ETFs acting as support for Bitcoin going forward, creating sustained buying pressure, something Bitcoin’s not had to this point.

Nation-State Adoption and the Role of Jan3

Mow’s company, Jan3, is at the forefront of encouraging nation-state adoption of Bitcoin. He shared insights from his discussions with the presidents of Colombia and Suriname, as well as the Prime Minister of Montenegro, highlighting the challenges of educating policymakers about the potential of Bitcoin. Mow explained:

“The benefit of El Salvador, the good thing about El Salvador was President Bukele was already a Bitcoiner and then He can make it Bitcoin country, but we’re sort of starting from zero for a lot of places.”

Samson’s vision of hyper-Bitcoinization presents a compelling case for the future of financial sovereignty and the potential of Bitcoin to revolutionize the global economic system.

As nations and individuals grapple with traditional finance’s limitations, his work at Jan3 and his advocacy for layer 2 solutions highlight the innovative solutions that could pave the way for a truly decentralized and inclusive financial ecosystem.
