"I don't want to be regulated" - with Anastasia Umrik

In this podcast episode of What Bitcoin Brings, Anastasia Umrik, Bitcoiner and probably one of the most powerful women on this planet, is Niko's guest. They talk about freedom, self-determination and Bitcoin.

This weekly podcast about Bitcoin is the initiative of the Viennese financial journalist Niko Jilch. The goal: to strengthen and network the German-speaking Bitcoin community - and to bring the Bitcoin phenomenon closer to as broad a mass as possible.

We accompany this project as one of the main sponsors in this blog and also make all podcast episodes available here as a video.

According to Niko himself, this episode is one of his most important so far. The guest is Coach Anastasia Umrik, an unusually strong woman who did not have it easy and yet managed.

Anastasia was born in Kazakhstan in very poor conditions and with a physical disability. She then emigrated, as a wheelchair user, to Germany. "Nobody comes and saves you. It's about your strength and your choices, and you have to fight for your own life in freedom," Anastasia says. Not many people can speak from such experience.

It is precisely this awareness and preservation of self-determination that connects Anastasia to Bitcoin and all of us as Bitcoiners, Niko says.

Anastasia came to Bitcoin out of curiosity and, above all, because she doesn't want to be restricted or regulated. Because the masses worry her, "When everyone says something, you have to become suspicious. I don't want to be regulated." But Anastasia wants to help shape and oppose: "We also do politics. We help decide."
