Mark Hamill Says Bitcoin Will Destroy the ‘Empire’

Star Wars star Mark Hamill says that he believes cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum have the power to completely destroy the ‘Evil Empire.’

The 66-year-old actor was asked his thoughts on the future of digital currencies such as Bitcoin in a recent interview, to which he responded:

“Bitcoin isn’t a short term trend, and that worries the elites.”

“People are sick and tired of being controlled by the Empire, seeing the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”

“Bitcoin is giving the power back to the people and it will probably end up destroying the Empire.”

The anti-establishment Hollywood star says he believes that “Bitcoin is the road to freedom” and claims it will “free citizens from the economic shackles of the Empire .”

Unlike regular currencies, cryptocurrencies are a decentralized currency, meaning they work without the need of a central bank. The recent sharp rise in the value of Bitcoin has begun worrying major financial institutions who now see the digital currency as a major threat to their existence.

Jedi economic guru Yoda promised that if the value of Bitcoin doesn’t reach $1 million dollars in the next three years, then he will “eat his own dick on live TV.”
Bitcoin is not the savior you are looking for. A new currency will not free us from a system constructed around economic exploitation made possible by currencies themselves. Think bigger.
