What does it for me is his attitude, the way he expresses his opinions as if they are the only ones on earth and everyone should abide by his beliefs. He might just be overjoyed about bitcoin..
Any other thoughts on him?

Max is a crazy SOB and I think we should be happy he's on "our" side  :D

He may come across a bit harsh at times but I think it's good to have someone with such reach and credibility as an advocate imo.

I think he's pissing a few people off at the moment multi-tweeting about the JPM patent. Looks like he's trying to drive down the price.

Max is an egotistical manic. His sole reason for existence is to be in the spotlight. I think his connection to Bitcoin is a negative.

+1 i think he is mad for trying to do this  -  pissing off tons of people for how much gain exactly? In his position with 10k BTC & solid media role i wouldnt be doing that for even $100k gain in 1 day.

Definitely bad for the credibility of Bitcoin if he becomes the main proponent in the media spotlight. He certainly has a talent for picking up on trends but the way he promotes them is ultimately damaging, not only to the asset in question, but the people who buy into it  - eg, the "Buy Silver Crash JP Morgan" campaign.

He's how I first heard about bitcoin; I almost missed it too, and had to rewind, but I'd heard him mention it briefly back in Jan this year, and I thought, "What on earth is bitcoin?"

Then my life changed for the better!  So I couldn't dislike the fellow, even if he is a complete maniac :P

Exactly.

Case in point: Assange and Snowden. Put a bunch of limp-wrister internet keyboard children together and we got a nice pot of pathetic wannabe fuck up that folds as soon as they run into a brick wall.

I believe that crypto idea has potential. However, those 'supporting' this new idea, I am not quite so sure about. Especially the most vocal ones.

Remember, if the ones supposedly pioneering an idea are jackass kids, public will never be fully persuaded to take crypto seriously. People look at the 'who' just as much as 'what' and 'why', if not more so. We need leaders and visionaries with will and passion, not a bunch of internet life-dropouts talking about illuminati conspiracy theories.

you shoukd watch some of his other ones ,he gets a lot worse than that
he screams like a mad man on drugs about satoshi being jesus  in one of his other  broadcasts in ,london
but he does seem to have his facts down and theres rarely a negative question he cant answer with a positive

I like him as a character, and was a fan, but I'm a little weary and suspicious of him now, especially when it seems like/ has been alleged that he's being paid to pimp out certain coins.

Post by: niniyo on December 11, 2013, 03:49:07 PM
I used to watch every Keiser Report episode back in my gold bug days (OK, I'm still a gold bug) and would laugh out loud when he started shouting about things.  But I stopped watching because I just couldn't take their smugness anymore (both Max and Stacy).  They seem to think they are above everyone.  Max thinks everyone is copying him, and he repeatedly claims that he invented virtual currencies.

The thing that annoys me most though is that he has this false technical understanding of Bitcoin, and still hasn't corrected it over all these years.  He said on his latest show that a bitcoin is a "precious number" and that there are "21 million precious numbers".  He honestly believs that each bitcoin is a unique and secret number.  In the past he's said that mining is about "finding prime numbers".  I wish he'd go and actually relearn about bitcoin because his understanding is totally wrong...

A bit of eccentricity can be good though. Gives people character, but obviously it can go too far sometimes. I think Keiser has the right balance. I first saw him on Ten o'Clock live (can't find any decent clips): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNK2NxSYVlE

Yeah he's a pain.

Russia Today are also lame. They have such an obvious anti-everything to do with the USA/UK stance it gets tiring. But then I realize that all news is biased, we just go with the bias we agree with. It's sad though, that I have to look to people like Keiser and RT to get something that begins to seem like an accurate interpretation of events - I know it's not, but it will be better than anything the MSM would let slip through the cracks.

Also for the record, I have learned a fair amount about the economy from watching the Keiser report, though most of the time I can't take a whole episode as his STYLE is very irritating.

I learned a lot more from watching the film "Inside Job" which explains in detail what happened from the 90s to the late 2000s in a the financial world. I can't recommend this film enough.

It would be a very sad day, And I really don't want it to happen.
But I'm getting more and more convinced he is going to be assassinated one day.
Either by the banks or somebody else.
It seems that he has too much influence at the moment.

Even I would have smacked him in the face when he started pumping bluarck coin.
But I think he doesn't really own them and will people learn a lesson (about greed).
If you read his tweets carefully, you alway see: Gold, Silver, Bitcoin.
In that order, and noting else.

(I will dump the qrk before Bill Stilll enters his show for sure.)

True, but most of his viewers don't  understand the math so explains it in an easier way to understand.
Nobody understands current FIAT system as well. Just saying that Banksters need to hang is much easier to understand for most of the people.

359 posts in a month, yet still lack a clue.

yeah... LTC is pretty much the same as the premine Ripple, I mean Quark.

Let me know when I can buy Lambo's with LTC. When that happens I will get one more.


I know how people can easily change their view on something , that's why I was asking.
Although I read a lot of your post before signing up (lets cut 50% of the choo choos) I never came across specifically about Max Keiser , or I haven't look into it (my bad).

As an example , PP is evil, is bad is gonna go extinct , and when the the news come that one of the directors holds some bitcoins > pp is gonna embrace bitcoin , hurray hurray :).

About the ltc , lambo thing , considering it teasing :)))

PP is evil eh? You got that from me telling people not to use pay pal to trade btc? you still do not understand why this is a bad idea? Hmmm.....


What a n00b.

I was talking about how peoples view of PP can change easily. And how people who hate paypal , when they get their first BTC they want to sell it for pp money forgetting how they have criticized pp in the past.

It was an example how the view of somebody on something can change. Just how your respect of Mister Quak here changed recently.

As for trading pp > btc , its' not a bad idea if you're the one paying with PP and the other send first :) , am I right?

either you hold quark, sad, or this account is for pumping quark, sad.

Just saying it's nice that Quark is so fascinating to the people that has to spread FUD. If people didn't bash Quark then Quark wouldn't be as successful. It's you guys that help us grow. People that actually look and research the coin will find the truth. So keep spreading my friend. I encourage it.
