President Donald Trump’s terrifying tweets on Bitcoin and Libra has become the topic of attention. In the latest interview with CNBC, Morgan Creek’s Anthony Pompliano mocks at Trump’s tweet and states that “Bitcoin has no CEO to send letter for a hearing”.
Libra v/s Bitcoin
Popularly known “Pomp” discussed at the CNBC’s Squawk Box about “Trump’s firing Bitcoin tweets where the president says he is not a fan of Bitcoin and Libra must follow banking regulations”. Referring to president’s note on Bitcoin and Facebook’s Libra, Pomp says
“With Bitcoin, there is no CEO”. As earlier, US’s congressional committee sent a letter to Facebook CEO and other two key leaders behind Libra cryptocurrency to attain the clarity and company’s plan behind Libra, Pomp quickly notes that “There’s no headquarter, You can’t send a letter or send somebody in for a hearing”.

Pomp further compared Libra with the incident of Napster, a software that allows free downloading of music files which got closed back in July 2001 due to the lawsuit against CEO/founders of Napster. He says the same thing is happening with Facebook over its Libra launch.
Napster is very similar to what Libra is experiencing now..there’s Facebook to go after, there are other corporations that are participating that you can pressure and regulate.
With that, he continued emphasizing the decentralized feature that Bitcoin carries, he says;
So I think that the completely decentralized nature of the asset is what makes it so compelling to people and we’re seeing that kind of play out right now,
