Maybe a minor disagreement, considering the message, but I do belieave Glass-Steagal didn’t even touch the crash. I mean, banks getting involved with each others was the thing that was bad? No, it was the banks doing the bad thing that was bad. It was all government housing policy. Deregulation is always good. Proof? We did have thousands and thousands of government people looking at those good damn housing loans, and none of them saw a problem, because they were told not to see it. Was that deregulation?


Some much value from him, while so humble…

Andreas’ work is really important. I’m going to buy The Internet of Money to show some appreciation.


Really smart dude


Amazing process of techno-enlightenment, as presented by the bitcoin pioneer himself, Andreas Antonopoulos. Wow! What a wonderful discourse on that science. Thank you both.

Many thanks.

To me episode’s like this is are the foundations london real was built on, Everybody remembers watching the First Ido portal, Peter Sage, Bruce Parry interview’s in the old format. I know brian will be first to say we have change and we don’t care, However before i literally raced home wherever i was to watch london real Episode’s like this one Andreas brought the fire. I know the guy’s at London real have worked tiresely hard on building the academy as a result the Interview’s have dropped of big time, as the view’s prove it. But what i’m trying… Read more »

Open up your browser and look for an extension called Video Download Helper. You should be able to download/save the video and maybe play it on some device or other.

Awesome, thanks LR. One request: to not spin around Brian in the introduction – makes the viewer dizzy. Otherwise, bless.

First of all, thanks very much for this great interview. So, I have a few questions though…. I only watched up to 1h15, so maybe these questions were answered later. If that is the case, please forgive me and refer me back to the rest of the interview. 1) I just created a wallet following this. First app that came up for iOS was Blockchain. Do you recommend a better app ? 2) I had to give my e-mail address to create my wallet. I could have created a new address somewhere with a fake name, but used my regular… Read more »

well, your suspicions are correct. From now government can attach your bitcoin address to your CC. Every transaction made using this particular bitcoin address, and any new ones that will interact/link with it can be attached to you. Cheap tricks like creating new address and transferring bitcoins to it are futile. Just as I said below in other comment – this system gives governments much easier, cheaper and better ways to track people’s economic behavior that anything they had in the past. There are already companies specializing in blockchain analysis. Also, most computers (like 90%) that control bitcoin network (so… Read more »

Absolutely the most eloquent speaker on the subject.

Bitcoin is perfect tool for global totalitarian government – it is worldwide, very centralized (more centralized than central banks themselves) and allows for total financial surveillance. Also, I am getting mad and another naive bitcoin preacher, that does not see, that fascism is being introduced not by right wingers, but by those ‘liberals’ (aka leftist, aka communists aka cultural marxists) – it is Obama who lately signed act of news censorship, same happens in ‘liberal progressive’ Germany – news censorship and total control of centralized media outles. And Bitcoin is song of the past already. Time for Monero and Dash,… Read more »

There would be not other alts. without bitcoin. They were built on bitcoin. No, it’s not centralized. And, try tracking transactions through the blockchain. Good luck.

Bartek Puchowski

Most altcoins are copies of Bitcoin, but some of them (like Ethereum or Monero) have completly new approach and codebase.
Bitcoin went too far to be fixed with simple additions when it comes to anonimity and centralization (those are design decisions on algorithm level, not possible to change).


So why not to deal with Monero and Zcash?
