There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.

It's more like the current financial crisis being utterly bizarre. This whole Bitcoin thing is a great learning experience in terms of human behaviour and honest systems.

It's always so backhanded! All I could see in that clip was a whole lot of lame acting, based on a script they have to follow. Obviously they're pumping it hard and trying to pique everyone's interest... (cashing out lots of profits on the way up, at the expense of their viewers of course, and hoping that some small glitch will set the price tumbling back down again later.)

Use your own brain or loose your time/money

The cost of mediation increases transaction costs, limiting the
minimum practical transaction size and cutting off the possibility for small casual transactions
