Wow! got extremely good interest rates than those with banks for a short period of time. This is really helpful for me and my family! I would love to share with you a company where you could diversify your investment and make a return. The company is operating in the financial market. They are giving away $500 for anyone who signs up this week. The company name is Belaska and you can check them out by visiting them at ' Belaska.com ' or join their facebook group to see what other investors have to say. I hope that I was able to help. Have a good day!

These days unless you need a loan, there's no reason for a bank with their .00001% interest.

This woman is a dummy. Banks have stollen trillions. THey have destroyed countries. Their existence becasue the central bank creates money has been inflation . A house that should cost 15000 cost 300,000 due to banks. 90 percent of USD is digitized. This dumb woman hears narco and has no clue that banks make money of narco. What an ignorrant dolt this sophie is

You were guilty for the crash. Saying "government can´t do anything", "banks are no longer required". You challenged them and now they fight back SUCCESSFULLY. Very bad interview for crypto !

That's the point. You managed to miss the point entirely. He declared himself as the CEO of Bitcoin Cash to make a point about permissionlessness.

fine.... you take all the bitcoins and I will take all the silver, gold, farmland and rental properties... Money must relate to confidence.... bitcoin is a dogfart which comes fast and will likely leave fast... it is still spoken in terms of dollars, pounds etc. Saying bitcoin or facsimile will replace the central bank and money is inevitable..... but then saying which one is a gamble? Sorry I am not willing to place my life savings in a currency that is changing from the newest flavour of the day and is a "gamble". bitcoin is a dog fart. I have no confidence in this.
5:00 The same way I see it. The future is bright with crypto. There will be bands of light that teleportation waves travel across: sorry, it's won't be like Star Trek. Bitcoin will run the teleportation network, which will basically be everyone's basic mode of transportation. A drastic change in average standard of living will proliferate.

Hey Rick, what happens if internet kill switch or EMPs?
Manu Foy (1 month ago)
You will need to kill the internet to the entire planet to destroy Bitcoin, because of it’s decentralised and permissionless nature. So, that’s not the top concern. Also, in an internet outage, modern banking will also be severely hindered at best.

Manu Foy (1 month ago)
You are missing the point entirely. The reason why Rick Falkvinge titled himself as the CEO of Bitcoin Cash is to demonstrate the principle of permissionlessness. The entire point is that no one has ever granted anyone permission to anyone to be a CEO of something that doesn’t exist as a company. That he just choose to take the initiative and make the declaration.
Ray Easton (1 month ago)
A government backed crypto currency may be the way to go. However, the interviewee is right printing money to pay off debt is NOT the right thing to do. Creating CRYPTO money to pay for WORK done, like replacing America's crumbly infrastructure is the way to go. When we borrow money from a bank that money is created OUT of thin air, the thing that gives that fiction it's value from the bank point of view is the borrowers PROMISE to repay the loan, but the thing that gives this money it's true value is the borrowers implied promise to go to work an make build something, that is do so WORK. By creating money to pay for much needed work, a government could introduce CRYPTO into an economy, it would then be DEBT free money. Because the work has already been done, then it would NOT be owed to the banking system. That is the world could be DEBT FREE. YOUR THOUGHTS? TROLLS NEED NOT COMMENT

Except crypto currency can't be taxed and tax is the cost of civilisation. Sorry but this is a total fail for those that don't understand how the real world works and how to maximise our potential. Also - It's not just about you or me but us and although I may hate aspects of you I have to respect the parts that make a civilisation.

Most taxation systems that I'm aware of have a very solid idea of someones overall worth with just a little logical digging. What home do they live in? What car do they drive? What is their profession? How long have they worked in that profession? What is their education level? ....all of these things paint a financial picture of someone and that information is not anonymous. Additionally, with the richest individuals their holdings may span multiple markets which also are not anonymous. So unless these individuals dumped 100% of their liquid assets into Bitcoin, there is still a clear picture available to tax collectors of what someone must pay to the government. ....and we need to remember that information like yearly earnings are reported by law to tax collectors, so in any given year the collectors will know exactly what amount that individual earned from work. The only caveat to all of that is that money held in or earned by crypto-currency is indeed protected from being counted for the purposes of determining tax debt. But again, Bitcoin is not the sole investment opportunity on the planet. Far from it, and I don't think those other investments are going anywhere on Bitcoins account. So, really I think that the impact on national treasuries will be far less than this video made it seem, and until those other markets...those other investments... disappear from the planet I think that the overall impact will be minimal. ....which is not to say that Bitcoin will not bring about some change that affects the traditional system dramatically via other paths. It may. But I dont see Bitcoin breaking the back of government anytime soon, or even altering the traditional systems flow very much.

Bitcoin trash is a joke alt-coin, really. They just forked to allow 32 MB blocks when the average block size currently is 0.2 MB. I really can't believe that anyone is putting cash into it - because even fiat has a brighter future than this ridiculous alt-coin.
Manu Foy (1 month ago)
The reason why the Bitcoin Cash blocksize is so high is to allow for future growth and scalability instead of waiting for the network to congest. When the 1MB blocksize was originally set as an anti-DOS mechanism by Satoshi Nakamoto (with the intention of raising the blocksize in the future), the sizes of the blocks were about a hundredth of the 1MB limit. The fact that the block size limit in Bitcoin Cash is much larger than the size of the actual blocks is not a weakness, but a strength.

Patrik Banek (1 month ago)
It is actually immpossible to delete, that's the whole point. Your bank account, which doesn't sound easy to delete, actually is just numbers on a single centralized server, which can physically be deleted very easily. I've used cryptocurrency for 5 years investing and paying for things online, and never lost a penny. Here is my wallet with 300$ https://etherscan.io/address/0x81ad6f14f4394f35eae9a56d04b3aae847e7693d Please try to delete it. Not you, any hacker or government could ever do that.

The miners are interested in finding a nonce which will create a hash with certain characteristics. Lastly, they have to find a random value that they included in the header, which makes the computed hash over that header a value below a particular target. In other words, they do not have to agree to change the protocol. Though there are a few gold diggers attempting to fill their pockets and certain projects that aren`t viable and shouldn`t be encouraged in any way. For users running a complete node, it is a fairly painless procedure to upgrade the software to the newest version. The process of locating a new block to extend the blockchain is known as mining. Proof-of-Work systems utilize cryptographic hashing algorithms to create the action of mining a block a complicated computation. Our software is totally incompatible with altcoins. Changes and modifications to how that it works need to be approved by consensus and every CPU gets a vote. To start with, it`s essential to realize that hardware wallet users control entirely their private keys. Whether you`re bullish or bearish on Bitcoin Gold, you ought not lose your coins as a result of careless mistakes! On the 1 hand, it may result in making a coin that solves all the pending issues. There`s no currency or digital asset named Bitcoin Core. Bitcoin Cash increases the range of transactions that may be processed per block. You could send any quantity of money, any place in the Earth, almost at no cost. You`ve made some great money already on the market, but you want more. For a wealthy individual, BTC`s price premium may be viewed as a plus. For someone without lots of money, BCH`s low price may look like a great deal for Bitcoin. If you have some concerns about the worth of Bitcoin after all forks, you need to be ready for a drop. The distinction is that not all of these suffer the chain split. The primary problem is Bitcoin imposes a hard limit on the magnitude of a block, the location where transaction information becomes stored. The end result is many straightforward wallets, called SPV wallets and very commonly found on your phone, will be quite confused about which chain is Bitcoin. In Bitcoin, the most important reason is known as the network effect.
