An unusual interview with Bitcoin SV (BSV) supporter Jimmy Nguyen about Fox Business appears to have been canceled today after Nguyen continued to criticize Bitcoin..
Nguyen appeared on the December 3rd episode of “Varney and Co.” from Fox Business to discuss growing interest in Bitcoin, but the interview ended abruptly after a total of about two minutes.

When asked by host Stuart Varney if he thought the use of Bitcoin as a currency continued to increase, Nguyen replied, “No, I disagree. I think bitcoin is very rarely used these days to pay for things in stores. “. Nguyen went on to say that Bitcoin’s “inability to scale” is the main culprit behind the “7” transaction fees that prevent Bitcoin from being used as the currency for day-to-day transactions.
Nguyen also used his short airtime to ditch Bitcoin’s “Store of Value” narratives, while claiming that the price has risen lately. As an example of what he believed to be an abuse of Bitcoin, he cited companies that have added large amounts of BTC to their holdings in the past few months:
“Public companies like MicroStrategy and Square have bought large reserves of the coin and are treating them as reserve assets in the hope that it will only increase in value through parking and not through day-to-day transactions and in the marketplace. Consumer life. “
