What is Andreas saying at the beginning, what kind of licences do HSBC have?

This guy is a canard, he must be a shill. Crypt’s are not currencies, they are a transfer agent, you know them as a money order. Bitcoin is not a currency, it’s a money order people, wake up.!

What a crappy website…. had to create an account for nothing. I can’t even see the damn video due to its privacy settings lol

Hi, try to use another browser. That’s a usual fix for the “Because of its privacy settings, this video cannot be played here” error. Sometimes, there is an inconsistency between the browser version and Flash.
Happy Holidays! ?

Beautiful, thank you, Maria! Very helpful.

However, Flash player is outdated rubbish and I wish people would stop using it on their websites!

why not use youtube? with auto-generated subtitle, also vimeo blocked in some country and the streaming not smooth

Because they can’t gate you behind a login requirement and sell your information to another company when they make their content openly available on their monetized youtube channel.

Andreas is a highly intelligent individual who understands the value of privacy, autonomy and security. But then he completely misses on the value of culture and national identity. People absolutely do share the most fundamental desires and needs for clean water, sense of community, social cohesion, etcetera; but part of national identity IS culture, community, social cohesion, and other fundamental needs of human beings. NO, not all individuals are the same in terms of religion, language, customs, and so to call nationalism “one of the most corructive forces in the world” is an extremely myopic and ignorant position to hold.… Read more »

Let me translate it to crypto language. Nations and cultures are like lots of different crypto currencies / tokens. Not all the different functions and different features forced/distorted into one big. They happily live next to each other.

I completely agree with this comment. Let me translate it to crypto language. Nations and cultures are like lots of different crypto currencies / tokens. Not all the different functions and different features forced/distorted into one big. They happily live next to each other.

What I heard him say is that the borders & cultures themselves are constructs – that we are a Human Race – and that this Human race has a culture of its own – one that has a bigger potential to thrive in all its capacity for sharing, family, connection and especially free commerce if not interfered with by the borders that don’t exist from space, or the governing bodies, banks that impact and define culture – I may be wrong but I don’t think forced integration appeared in his worldview on this interview. Nationalism keeps us within the borders… Read more »

In the first few seconds AA says “the biggest criminals in the world have (what?) licenses of their own”… what’s the word I’m missing?

Bertram

“banking” I believe

EDIT: Saw after that the question had been answered:)

Steven Travers

He said “banking” licenses. It becomes apparent halfway through the video when you hear that excerpt in context.

I loved it, but what happens when governments decide to tax bitcoin etc, and make it illegal if you do not disclose your holdings? Sooner or later, they will declare it the currency of terrorism or tax evaders or criminals and introduce draconian laws in some form or other. We really need a new political movement to effect change, otherwise there will be no escape.

Hi Alex,

My country has a dickheaded government so I relate to your worries.

I recommend following think tanks e.g. London Futurists and The Millennium Project. They assess challenges to people and planet. Then future-speculate all possible outcomes – good, bad and neutral.

There is a lot of genius out there so I’m hoping we’ll surprise ourselves by getting inventive.

“Sooner or later, they will declare it the currency of terrorism or tax evaders or…”

Alex. I’m not trolling here, I’m asking a serious question. Has this approach to life / problems / new ideas served you well?
Have you been able to predict the future and did having a plan for when things go wrong work for you?

Non-blockchain cryptocurrencies like IOTA, Byteball and DAGcoin are the master race.
