An interview with Jeremy Jacka

Recently, the show featured Jeremy Jacka, a former IT professional who made a transition into property development and got involved in cryptocurrency. Jacka’s interest in crypto started with a conversation he overheard about Ethereum at a Christmas party in 2016, which led him to research and get fascinated by the potential of blockchain technology.

With technological advancements, it’s become easier to understand the basics of cryptocurrency. However, there’s still a lot of work to be done in making it accessible and user-friendly for daily transactions and eliminating intermediaries.

Jacka stresses the significance of financial education, especially for the younger generation. The lack of financial literacy in schools is a major problem, and people of all ages must have a basic understanding of finance and investing. He suggests having a well-diversified portfolio of assets, including both blue chips and high-risk investments, to reduce risk and safeguard investments during market fluctuations.

Hedging against inflation

Additionally, Jacka highlights the benefits of investing in cryptocurrency as a hedge against inflation. With the declining value of money over time, people are seeking more efficient options to grow their wealth. There’s a comparison between gold and cryptocurrency, with each having its own pros and cons. However, privacy concerns arise from the pushback of governments against the privacy features of cryptocurrency.

Jacka also talks about central bank digital currencies, stable coins, and personal freedoms. He mentions Liquid Loans, a defi protocol, lending platform, and stablecoin factory that aims to eliminate intermediaries and enable people to extract value from assets over time.

In conclusion, Jacka encourages everyone to learn more about cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. He’s a firm believer in its potential and the opportunities it presents. You can reach him on Twitter for more information or to ask questions.
