In times of constant digital transformation, the famous Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson, with a legion of more than 4.6 million followers, brings to the table a topic that has been the subject of discussions among cryptocurrency enthusiasts.
In a recent post, he started a heated debate about the ‘debanking’ movement and the possibility of Bitcoin being the answer to a world that seeks to phase out physical cash.
Maybe it’s time to let go
Does Bitcoin fix this?
Maybe it’s time to scrap
Bitcoin fix this? https://t.co/j6wldXMv7P

At the time of publication, the price of Bitcoin was quoted at US$26,425.38, down 0.5% in the last 24 hours.
In this scenario of rapid digitalization, Peterson raises a provocation. He suggests it may be time for people to consider abandoning traditional banks. But what about Bitcoin in all this? For Peterson, crypto could be exactly the alternative tool that many are looking for. In a world where liquidity and access to money itself are increasingly restricted, Bitcoin appears as a kind of “money 2.0”, promising freedom and financial autonomy.
Peterson’s proposal resonates with many who are dissatisfied with banking restrictions and see crypto as an innovative way out. After all, the idea of having total control over your own money, without intermediaries and with decentralized transactions, is a tempting proposition in an ever-changing financial world.
