It is interesting that he acknowledges that this new model may not be received well by current users.  Not clear to me how this will attract more users to this model, seems like WCG does something similar already.

Yeah, there a guy over there now making the bitcoin wave of the future argument, That pretty soon there will be no crunchin without some form of bitcoin.

We are all antiques cause we believe in true volunteering and that we need to get with the future....

He claims that there are governments all over the world that are integrating bitcoin into their currency systems, yet, I've still haven't seen any evidence of this.....

Right now bitcoin is still a realm of wishes and dreams, and a gamble.....

Who knows, the early adopters just might be right and those he claims to be holding millions of US dollars in BTC will be the new generation of movers and shakers, but right at this point they have just as much of a chance of being the next generation of jokes.

I see BTC and think the tech bust of the 90's, why?

Cause they use the same wave of the future arguments the tech sector did to fleece millions.....

Guess what? we as a people will always have to use the facilities..... As will they..... no matter how many times they re-engineer the toilet.

Kinda puts it in perspective....biggrin.gif

And remember one thing.....

The guy who invented the BTC algorithm, sold out for a few millions and laughed his azz off all the way to the bank.......

Never to look back.....

Well btc has been going for about 8 years now only going up every year and i don't believe the creator sold out because no one really 100% knows who made it the strongest rummor is Satoshi Nakamoto which holds over 1mil coins at current value a ton of money lol literaly. Way i see BTC now is it acts alot like the stock market for Commoditys but digital not physical.

Bitcoin is recognized as legal method of payment in Japan. When this happened I think it became much more legit with a 1st world government recognizing Bitcoin.
