Ruby on Rails creator backpedals about Bitcoin: 'We need crypto'

Ruby on Rails creator makes a U-turn on Bitcoin due to Canada’s financial crackdown on COVID-19 vaccine protesters.

Canada’s move to freeze Bitcoin (BTC) wallets and bank accounts related to the COVID-19 vaccine protests is driving cryptocurrency adoption, with some crypto naysayers reconsidering their stance on Bitcoin.

David Heinemeier Hansson, the Ruby on Rails web development framework creator, took to Twitter on Monday to tell his followers that he was no longer a Bitcoin skeptic.

“I still can’t believe that this is the protest that would prove every Bitcoin crank a prophet. And for me to have to slice a piece of humble pie, and admit that I was wrong on crypto's fundamental necessity in Western democracies,” Hansson wrote.
