  1. So funny….

    All these banks & old geezers think you can have bitcoin without blockchain & vice versa. Without bitcoin it’s just a glorified and very expensive database.

    However us bitcoiners thank the banks for training 1000s of crypto experts for free who now work on bitcoin projects & crypto startups :’-)

    First time in my life banks are making *ME* rich haha

  2. Hi everyone, I’ve been collecting a little money, and I have made a wallet with some earnings only on the internet as if it were the money of the trainee. I actually am, some days a friend sent me a link to earn 0.10 cents for each advertisement I vice kkkkkkkkkkkkk kkkkk time I found it silly pq is always the same bullshit but they pay in dollars and I made 150 $ to my surprise the money falls on the paypal account http: // padyredrgi. loan / 8432607044749 / you can take a look on your own anyway because do not you even draw your conclusions bjao

  3. if you are in need of an accurate strategy, i make more than $50,000 a month using these advance strategy feel free to contact him via my email address above. i smile when i look what i have in my bank account due to the rate at which my profits roll in, I have not lost a single trade this year using his amazing strategy.

  4. Ok. So how do we stop this bc messing up our world? He says prosperity but I say total control. What a freakish world computers have created. STOP this nonsense. Virtual me? He said that with a straight face. Are you kidding?

  5. This is madness but amazing to see a technology is trying hard to challenge the govt. and it’s authority. This is good only for citizens of countries of unstable economy where people lost trust on their govt

  6. The “THIS will solve ALL our problems” fallacy… It’s a nice talk, but the tole of blockchain will remain limited in society. For the shear reason that the requirements in electricity and investment in maintenance of a crypto currency are way to high to sustain. It’s like paying 5 million for an unbreakable lock on your door. Yes we want an unbreakable lock, but not for 5 million. It’s like VR goggles. It’s nice and it works but it will never get mass adoption.
