Last year, Paul Tudor Jones wrote a paper called “The Great Monetary Inflation” that would end up creating narrative motivation for many traditional retail and institutional investors to allocate to bitcoin as an inflationary hedge. On today’s episode, NLW looks at the rising discussion of inflation in the media and in mainstream American society. He discusses why the inflation conversation, even more than the ProShares bitcoin futures ETF, might be driving bitcoin’s current rise. He also shares Paul Tudor Jones’ latest comments from “Squawk Box” on CNBC regarding the inflation issue.

Levine is our executive producer and our theme music is “Countdown” by Neon Beach. The music you heard today behind our sponsor is “Only in Time” by Abloom.
