There has got to be a better way to watch this episodes. On a phone you cant rewind or it turn a 3 hour video into a 7 hour struggle. Any ideas?

Starting at minute 59 Andreas sets out a hypothetical example (using Argentina for sake of illustration) of a country servicing its external debt by expropriating all foreign currency in domestic banks, forcing account holders to convert to the local currency, then debasing the local currency, and making it illegal for citizens to deal in any foreign currency. For a real time, non-hypothetical example, take a look at what Zimbabwe is doing right now

I need to add something to the below comment I left but it won’t let me so here is a short video about RAIDA which I talk about BELOW. https://vimeo.com/346937349 This is 23,000 times faster than any Blockchain — This is 3 sextillion times stronger security than cryptography – it simply cannot be hacked. This is 41,000 more ENERGY efficient than Blockchain. Affordable for users and good for environment. BTC uses the energy amount used in the Country Hungary every day, where Cloudcoin and RAIDA uses the amount of energy 1 or 2 homes use for the whole world. Cloudcoin… Read more »

It is so frustrating knowing that Everything Andreas is talking about is all “antiquated technology” compared to http://www.Raidatech.com and http://www.Cloudcoin.global . Will someone please pass those two websites on to Andreas Antonopoulos! This is the future with TOTAL privacy, unlike a blockchain, RAIDA takes the place of a NON private Ledger like a Blockchain, using Cloudcoin. For your clarification, Cloudcoin is NOT cryptocurrency, it does not use Cryptography on the blockchain, Cloudcoin is only Digital not crypto. BTC are really only MARKS on a ledger, but inside each Cloudcoin are 25 passwords. The RAIDA shreds all 25 passwords into 25… Read more »

Hi Brian,

Considering the Robert Kiyosaki’s and Andreas’s words about Crypoto and bit coins. What you will say about the Crypotocurrency investments?

After we signed up can you also give us a youtube link (to a privately published playlist) to watch the rest of the video? I live in China and I have to use a VPN every day to access the internet. The problem is that this video buffers every 3s and is unwatchable

Thank you for this video. I’ve put thoughts of opting out of banks and taking more control of my money on the shelf. It’s refreshing to revisit these concepts and ideas.

Thank you both for such great information. Andreas was very helpful to me soon after I started in crypto (in Dec 2017 – ugh!!) Love learning everyday in many subjects, grateful for this place loaded with great and diverse interviews.
