Europe's 'Crypto Prince' Michael | 'A New Financial Crisis Is Coming'

Season 1, Ep. 4

Prince Michael of Liechtenstein fears we only delayed the Global Financial Crisis, and another financial crisis is looming.


Bailouts, money printing and negative interest rates may have all helped stave off the inevitable but judgement day is coming.

"Well at the moment we are very efficiently kicking down the can along the road," he tells Blockchain Journeys. "That can go on for a while."

He says he expects the European Central Bank will continue to do "whatever it takes" with a loose monetary policy allowing countries to increase debt and inflate their way out of it.

"At the moment we did a monetary policy for more than 20 years to avoid a crisis."

"Yeah, so I see a crisis coming up."
