Politicians and pundits are all talking about cryptocurrency — some are calling it “magic internet money” and alleging that it’s a risky investment. Meanwhile others, such as Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre, claim crypto will enable Canadians to “opt out of inflation.” Who’s telling the truth?

As the Canadian economy becomes more uncertain, Canadians want to know what the future holds for decentralized digital currencies.

On this episode of the Candice Malcolm Show, Candice is joined by Matt Spoke, the founder and CEO of Moves, a financial app for gig workers.

Candice and Matt discuss the future of cryptocurrencies in Canada, the ongoing debate among conservatives surrounding the value of Bitcoin and why governments around the world are planning to create their own digital currencies.

Founder and Editor-In-Chief of True North.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
