Gabriel Custodiet speaks with Nicholas Anthony, co-creator of CBDC Tracker.

They also cover the unrecognized economic problems of CBDCs, black box debanking, cybersecurity concerns of CBDCs, CBDCs as a PSYOP, Operation Choke Point, the Financial Tyranny Index, and more. Anthony’s scholarly take on CBDCs is much appreciated.
