  • - So yesterday I posted a video about a text message I got

  • from my bank, NatWest, right here in the UK,

  • saying that they would from here on out,

  • prohibit me from using credit and debit card transactions

  • on Binance, the very popular cryptocurrency asset exchange.

  • And it said it was doing it for my safety, my safety.

  • It was looking out for me.

  • And even though it was my money in their custody,

  • they decided that they had the right to tell me

  • when and how and why I can use it.

  • All right, pretty flabbergasting.

  • But it goes even further because I used to be a banker,

  • for 15 years I was in this world

  • of what we call centralised finance.

  • Where a very small group of companies

  • control the wealth of everyone in the world.

  • They tell you what you can and cannot do.

  • They charge you ridiculous fees

  • that you never even see are there,

  • and they dictate your life.

  • Almost every single moment of your life

  • is a financial transaction that is controlled

  • by a centralised financial institution like a bank.

  • And this is one sign, this text message,

  • basically saying that we're looking to protect you,

  • we're like your father and your mother.

  • We know you can't handle this complicated money stuff.

  • So we're gonna prohibit you from using the money

  • that you earned through hard work.

  • Isn't that incredible?

  • And the reason I'm able to see this

  • is 'cause I spent 15 years in the banking industry.

  • I started on Wall Street, I worked in Chicago

  • and I worked in London and I always knew

  • that they were never doing anything

  • in the interest of the customers.

  • And so I want you to just be aware of what's happening

  • because this text message, it's the only the beginning,

  • there's gonna be more and more

  • of your centralised financial institutions,

  • trying to control your life in a more overt way.

  • They're already doing it in a covert way.

  • And that's why now is the time to educate yourself

  • on this entire ecosystem called decentralised finance.

  • And I was explaining it to my daughter last night.

  • And I was explaining how, when she was 10 years old,

  • she opened up a bank account and she got a piece of paper

  • once a month and told her her balance.

  • She couldn't do anything with it, she had no access.

  • She had no relationship with her money.

  • With decentralised finance, she can open up an account now.

  • She can use her money, she can have a relationship with it.

  • She can lend it, borrow it, invest it.

  • This is the future is giving the people

  • back their financial freedom.

  • And that's why DeFi is so important

  • from my daughter, my teenagers,

  • to my young boys who are five and six years old,

  • up until all the people around the world.

  • And we see signs like text messages from your banks.

  • You know something is awry, something is afoot.

  • It smells funny, and it means your financial freedom

  • is being continuing to being taken away from you.

  • So I've spent the last few months and I'm gonna spend

  • the next 10 years educating the world

  • on what I call decentralised finance.

  • I believe it's the greatest dislocation

  • of wealth in human history.

  • I think it's an incredible way for you to create

  • generational wealth and provide banking services

  • to over two billion people in the world

  • that don't have access to basic finance.

  • I just think this is a fundamental human right,

  • that is being denied people in this world.

  • And I'm on a big fight here with my team

  • to try to educate the world.

  • And that's why I created my DeFi Academy.

  • That's why we have hundreds of students

  • that have taken back control of their finances,

  • taken back control of their freedom,

  • taken back control of their future.

  • And I'm taking another group through this course

  • in the next few days.

  • And I couldn't be more excited.

  • If you're interested more in DeFi, click the link below

  • or go to Lyndonreel.TV/DeFi,

  • learn more about this space.

  • It's not going anywhere, it's super excited.

  • This is not crypto day trading.

  • This is not get rich quick schemes, I have no time for that.

  • This is about educating yourself on this fundamental aspect

  • of your life, which is finance.

  • You are not too stupid to understand your money.

  • You don't need some big brother financial institution

  • to look after your money.

  • You need to take control and you need to stop

  • listening to these crazy text messages.

  • That's a sign that you need to get educated.

  • And I look forward to being part of that process.

  • So leave me your comments below.

  • Tell me, do you think that the banks

  • are looking out for your interests

  • or is it time that you take control?
