Although bitcoin cannot be controlled by government crypto currency exchanges can be. People can’t buy food or pay rent in bitcoin (yet), so they require an exchange linked to a traditional bank account in order to convert to fiat.

I love the part where money compare to language, so natural but fogotten from the society.
I’ve had a confirmation in my thought proces about the need of diversifying skills.
Thank you both.

The first half of the show, and any tech part … was awesome. At some point into the second half, as soon as the guest started his ideological rant … post-nationalism, etc … he lost me only to reconnect when he began to be more personal about his life choices and style. great talk!

Great interview thanks.
You guys talk about Peter Smith the ceo of blockchain,in the interview, but when Andreas talked about bitcoin wallets to download he did not mention the blockchain wallet. I’m using a blockchain wallet. My question is,is the blockchain wallet not a good enough wallet by Andreas standards?

Thank you, Andreas, and I think you are more like a Bard rather than a court jester. I’m new in this space and really appreciate your passion and intellect.

It’s hilarious that he says people will use BTC to buy cat videos when you think about CryptoKitties.

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.!
