Uncertainty about governments could make cryptocurrency like bitcoin an even more in-demand commodity, said Lightspeed Venture Partners partner Jeremy Liew.

“Bitcoin and the other digital currencies, they all really see a lot of benefit in times of political and economic instability,” Liew said to CNBC. “Fundamentally when a citizen doesn’t have faith in their currency of their country, then they are looking for alternatives, and a digital alternative like bitcoin becomes much more compelling in those circumstances.”
