  1. He could have just played any Andreas Antonopoulos video for the crowd and
    made his point much more clearly.

  2. should i invest in bitcoin!?!? or will the govt come in and create their
    own crypto currency secured by a block chain!?

    • +Patatmetmayo Personally I love Ethereum too, but even with that I have to
      keep reminding myself bitcoin is 10x bigger.

    • bitcoin was the starting point to consider electronic currencies as an
      alternative. i don’t think bitcoin will ever be regulated and has too many
      connections with the black market so something else will come up later.

    • why not create a single universal cryptocurrency? imbalanced conversion
      ratios between countries is one of the biggest hurdles for current world
      economies.

  3. this guy talks about incorporating bitcoin into the more corrupt system we
    have today
    instead of dallors lets use bitcoin to do all our corruption.
    bitcoin was made to make people free from government and middle men and
    wallstreet
    you want to incorporate and give it to wallstreet and say everythings great
    rich get richer and poor get poorer

  4. Some people have said that onecoin is a ponzi. All is ask from you is to
    sign a free package account under me http://www.onecoin.eu/signup/spymaxi1.
    Onecoin is half the market capitalization of bitcoin and is currenty worth
    5Euro per coin. I personally had invested 500Euro into Onecoin.
