ChatGPT is a powerful new artificial intelligence (AI) tool, capable of problem-solving, advanced coding, answering complicated questions and now spelling out the end of fiat currencies.
Parman, a Bitcoin self-custody mentor and writer, taught ChatGPT that Bitcoin (BTC) would bring about the end of government-issued fiat currencies and shared the results in a Twitter thread.

Parman explained that he “orange-pilled” or convinced the bot about Bitcoin and that the machine learning tool “is now a Bitcoiner.”
The process was straightforward. First, Parman asked ChatGPT how humanity could end central banking. After all, Bitcoin was created in the shadows of the 2008 financial crisis, and in the genesis block, the words “Chancellor on the brink of second bailout for banks” are etched, perhaps showing founder Satoshi Nakamoto’s aversion to central banking.
ChatGPT explains that one way to end central banking could be “decentralized digital currencies,” which sounds a lot like Bitcoin. Parman asks the bot to answer the question in two words, to which it replies, “decentralize finance.” That is to say, DeFi could bring about the end of central banking.
Parman, a Bitcoin maximalist, told the bot that DeFi is a “marketing term for what is actually centralized finance to scam people” and asked it to look a little deeper, to which ChatGPT answered, “end fiat.”
In conversation with Cointelegraph, Parman explained that he was testing ChatGPT and trying to use two-word answers to chivvy along the conversation:
“I wanted to see how ‘smart’ it [ChatGPT] was. If it came up with the answer for two words to end central banking as ‘buy Bitcoin,’ I was going to be blown away.”
Parman was satisfied with the response that ending fiat would fell central banking, so he moved on to the how. How can humanity end fiat currency?
ChatGPT listed four options: a return to a gold standard, promoting alternative currencies such as Bitcoin, reducing government spending, and changing government perception. The AI bot was getting close, but Parman is a serial Bitcoin orange-piller and educator and wouldn’t let up. He explained:
“My natural instinct is to orange pill, so I guided it to the right answer.”
The machine learning tool now understood that crypto adoption could lead to the end of fiat, but crypto, in Parman’s view, is not the answer. “There is only one cryptocurrency that makes this possible, as it is the only one that has no issuer,” he typed.
Parman refers to the fact that when Bitcoin was first mined, it was a digital trial, an experiment with a digital token that had no value nor a promise of value. All other cryptocurrencies, Parman explained, “have leadership teams and are, therefore, centralized.”
So, which one is it: ChatGPT, Bitcoin or crypto? The bot replied: Bitcoin.
Parman had successfully convinced a machine learning bot that Bitcoin could bring about the end of fiat currency. But why bother going to all that effort? Parman explained in a conversation with Cointelegraph:
“Importantly, the world needs to know central banking is a scam, and everyone needs to know that Bitcoin is the only thing that can stop it.”
Perhaps with the powerful ChatGPT bot on team Bitcoin, the world may draw a little closer to that realization.
