Dedollarisation with Jonah Van Bourg

The US Dollar has been the world’s global reserve currency since the Second World War, underpinning global trade and US dominance. However, as our guest argues, its use as a global policy tool such as in sanctions, increasing geopolitical competition and political instability at home is threatening its status. Various countries and blocs are attempting to circumvent dollar trades. Yet, perhaps, the dollar’s biggest threat comes from blockchain and especially Bitcoin. What does that mean for commodities and the world? Our guest is Jonah Van Bourg, former Oil Derivatives Trader at Goldman Sachs and Vitol, Crypto and Precious Metals Trader at DRW and now helping to build Onyx Commodities. Jonah is also the co-host of the 1000x podcast.
