Kiyosaki has already rejected the existence of CBDCs, calling them an “act of betrayal.”
Robert Kiyosaki has been a staunch supporter of bitcoin and has recommended its adoption several times.
The author of the famous book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, entrepreneur Robert Kiyosaki, claimed this week that central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) are nothing more than a spyware (antispyware) to track users’ movements. In his opinion, these currencies monitor in a similar way as the Chinese social network Tik Tok does.
In his podcast weekly published on the official channel “The Rich Dad”, Kiyosaki stated that these fiat digital currency projects are they are a way to increase control over the population.
CBDCs are a spyware, very similar to Tik Tok. And our job is to wake people up and combat that using the technology that I agree with. Combat it with education and information.

Although he did not mention it directly in the podcast, Kiyosaki has been characterized as a staunch defender of bitcoin (BTC), seeing it as an investment model and as a way to escape centralization. This, to the point where he has recommended its adoption on multiple occasions.
The allusion to the social network Tik Tok by Kiyosaki responds to the criticism that revolves around this short video platform, which has been accused of serving the Communist Party of China.
In fact, and under that accusation, the former American president Donald Trump opened investigations and was about to ban the platform in his country, but he did not have enough time in the White House to concretize it.
Kiyosaki has already opposed CBDCs
This is not the first time that the well-known entrepreneur has launched criticism against this centralized technology. As reported by Criptonews in July, the investor said that the digital dollar (which is about to be developed) will be the largest “act of treason” in the United States.
In fact, at that time Kiyosaki claimed that CBDCs, as well as the current banking system, which is centralized and controlled by the Federal Reserve, it is a sample of “communism in its purest form”.
That’s exactly why the specialist has stressed his affinity for Bitcoin. As you have said in the past, the first cryptocurrency is a safe haven asset against inflation, a phenomenon often generated by bad economic policies.
