A more agresive spokesperson would be better.  But cheers for the effort.

That is the guy that owns https://www.expensify.com/ and for someone that is just a user of bitcoin he did great! That is why they picked him to talk cause he isn't spoke person for bitcoin at all.

That is just cheap to attack Bitcoin like that. You need time to explain it to them properly. don't judge a book by the cover. Pun intended for Fiat. We all know how this one went!

 What a hack job.
 >My IT department doesn't trust it.
 >Some one could hack the network, no wait counterfeit them.
>US government will come in and shut it down.  
> Drug dealers
> at least the guy on the left said he was intrigued.
>The guy on the right must be spoon fed and dressed every day and then drove to work. I'm sure he has to be supervised while he shits. He sounds like he was born with a butt plug up his ass and a silver spoon in his mouth. What a dumb ass.

Did they really say it went up 20-40% in the last month or was I hearing the guy wrong? Seems y'know..a bit understated when it was closer to 180%?

I think he did a great job, and I think its awesome that we have entrepreneurs and successful people championing the idea of exploring alternatives like bitcoin.

Agreed, he did very well. Although it's a shame he didn't recommend the other guy to get a new IT department because it is obviously filled with idiots.

Watching that CNBC video was like watching someone's grandpa operate a smartphone for the first time. Other than the guy who was using bitcoins, the other two had zero clue - nor did they exhibit the slightest understanding of their topic. In other words, typical 'journalism' on CNBC.

Yeah the Expensify gentleman did great.  Too bad the pompus investor type dude wouldn't let him finish.

Oh Loaded, who art up in Mt. Gox, hallowed be thy name!  Thy dollars rain, thy will be done, on BTCUSD.  Give us this day our daily 10% 30%, and forgive the bears, as we have bought their bitcoins.  And lead us into quadruple digits

Good news- this piece in my mind does not fall into the "Epic Fail" category!

I think the Expensify guy and the other guy had enough positive things to say to put doubt into Pento's argument, and at the very least, have Bitcoin enter the subconscious of CNBC viewers. Perhaps when these same viewers notice bitcoin's higher price a few months from now they will revisit the issue much like many of us did before accepting its merits. This is another early salvo into the mainstream media which can only help increase Bitcoin's exposure.

Free money, buy bitcoins!

My favorite part!

I never realized how wrong information on CNBC could be...

I always thought tv shows had correct information, but I guess TV is just like the internet...

Does anyone frickin know what they are talking about in this world???

Gah, people are so dumb... I can only imagine what I say wrong, too.  However, I try to think & research before I speak.  Also, I'm willing to learn; however, I don't think that my nice conversations would make for good TV.

So I guess I have to keep that in mind, too.  People like the controversy!

Holy shitballs, we are all gonna be rich after the next wave of money is sunk into BTC!  Woot!

"I have and IT department and they would very much not trust this."
Reminds me of "The IT Crowd."

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
