    This is just hilarious. It's not going to last. At least the Dollar is known to be unbacked. Digital currency can't be trusted. Never forget…collecting Beanie Babies was a craze too.

    lol maybe it will go up, but until it's useful for the masses it's a joke. Have you seen the wallets on Android? Pitiful. They want to take over the world?? looool. When you take money out of your physical wallet, does it charge you $10-14?? lol. Charlatans in this space. People need to demand more from developers. Learn about the technology and don't put money into this. Let them hype themselves up. At least you have sanity. It's unacceptable at the present time how amateurish it all is. Ooh it's going up… who gives a sh*t… you can't do anything with it. There are no apps on the platform… Maybe in 2022 we will see some maturing, enough time to learn about the technologies. At least that's free.

    This is a social experiment. I want to see how generous the Bitcoin community is. So why not take the challenge and send $5 or more of a partial Bitcoin. At the end of next month I will donate 10% of whatever I receive to charity. If you want to participate, please forward your donation to Bitcoin address 166Fx4iFf9aEeJkSMN1HqPEANuasYTM3uK

    Don't worry, I pretty sure I won't get rich from this social experiment because unfortunately, the richer most people become the less they give. Prove me and everyone reading this response wrong.

    BITCOIN IS NOT A BUBBLE.

    Something is worth what someone will pay. You can't make more bitcoin. It's just a new asset class. A finite one at that. In a world of money printing presses and checking accounts impossible to bounce. Rule 1 day 1 of economics is the more money chasing the same amount of goods means the value or price of those goods will only increase.

    In addition, what you and the rest of the bubble koolaid drinkers mislabel a bubble is in actuality a new asset class or store of value that hasn't even found market equilibrium yet in a market that always and only increases it's money supply to begin with.

    Bitcoin is not a bubble. It will be stable when it finds equilibrium but look at the world money supply, which is always increasing, I can't imagine crypto doesn't get a 3-5% market share or more on the most conservative guess.

    I think anyone who calls it tulips is the same guy who shorted Amazon in the 1990s or told you only drug dealers needed cell phones and we would never see a black president. You guys just don't get it. Don't see it. But in the end none of that will really matter bc what is coming is coming regardless of your doubts in this new automobile thing a ma giggy, blockchain is the future bitcoin or no bitcoin.

    Sooner or later, when all your bitcoins get hacked, this is another depression all across the globe. Don't focus only on bitcoin. There are other means to invest. Don't go with the flow trying a get rich quickly. Major players are just waiting to get their target number, then BOOM! goodbye

    for those who don't know: Gold, silver, platinum, etc. (any finite, resource, based metals) have NOT been used to back our currency in ~40 years given or take. We use FIAT which is a debt based currency. The more debt, the better. If you look at any american dollar, it will state "this is a notice of debt". Bitcoin brings back a finite value to our enconomy while decentralizing it once again (like when gold actually backed the dollar). All current financial institutions, including the federal reserve, are privately owned by 3rd parties and not the actual federal government. It is not federal and is not a financial reserve. They literally create wealth out of debt and tell the governemnt how much is owed back to them. Not the other way around. This is why cryptocurrency will win out in the long run. These people, in the video, are morons. Learn basics on how the economy works. It's so simple, the mind actually finds it repulsive. Bitcoin is the new gold, digital gold to be precise, and it is the future.

    If a person borrows $15,000 to buy one Bitcoin hoping to make $1,000,000 it's probably no big deal. If lots of people borrow billions of dollars to buy bitcoins then we're in trouble. It's 2008 all over again. Bump and Dump.

    Thank you, Bitcoin, for eliminating the complication and risk from money laundering….

    What could possibly go wrong with empowering the bad guys?….lol…
