So he's smart enough to see what happens as people start exchanging dollars for Bitcoin, but hasn't quite looked forward enough to ponder a bitcoin-bitcoin economy outside of gov't oversight/meddling.  Maybe it's too uncomfortable for them to ponder?

It's impossible for a professional statist to comprehend humans acting in the realm of commerce without the ever helpful and watchful government overseeing.

All I'm going to say is 'too big to fail' is failed capitalism in practice.



"Bitcoin has been an amazing ride, but the most fascinating part to me is the seemingly universal tendency of libertarians to immediately become authoritarians the very moment they are given any measure of power to silence the dissent of others."  - The Bible

Al Gore is driven by (as much as a politician can be) passion. It's no wonder he sees the value of a Bitcoin driven economy.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

"Too big to fail" is central planning, not capitalism.

Al Gore is a sociopath you want to jump on your bandwagon.
Internet=Good for everyone, which is exactly why any proper government wants to spy on everyone using it to enhance liberty
Global warming/climate change/whatever you want to call justifying the waste of hundreds of trillions of dollars=Bad for everyone but those wearing golden parachutes who've sabotaged their own planes, figuratively speaking
Bitcoin=Good for everyone who wants economic liberty, which is exactly why any proper government wants to regulate and tax it into near-prohibition
