Yes that was a very lame interview and comments...overly simplistic.  You have been able to purchase hard assets with Bitcoins for years and there are many other virtual currencies where you can do that, just not as widely.  This is a story for noobs...and those who can't comprehend anything but the most simple explanations.

The good thing is many people just need to be made aware of the options and simple media attention helps the general public know that big money is turning their attention at Bitcoin.

I think it was an awesome interview, not only did O'leary say "its here to stay" & "he would consider buying 1-3%" of his net worth in BTC but he also opened the door for Canadians looking for a reason to buy some BTC.

I showed a few family members this video and all and now getting the message and are buying up coins. This was by far the best Bitcoin report I've seen on Canadian TV.

Exactly, the general public needed something like this, and that's probably why O'leary kept it simple. I'm sure he could tell you all the technical details about bitcoin considering he said he's looking to invest 1%+ into it, but he is smart and knows that the details aren't what the general public are capable of understanding or even want to hear.

Well, there are plenty of bitcoins to buy.  Now roughly 4x as many on the book as there were 4 days ago.  Probably means we're going up, right?   Roll Eyes

i think you dont understand.. it's DAY TRADERS selling back and forth to each other/public..
it's them trying to make money off the volatility. it's not like each transaction is unqiue. some have been buying and selling nonstop the last few days

No, there's almost a record high amount of fiat on gox which means we're going to crash!

He cant say anything publicly because hes too proud to say he lost out.. I doubt he will advocate it but instead troll for a downturn so he can buy... Which makes me uber bullish and thinking we wont see. Sub $500

Lol . You can't be serious.  Troll for a downturn?  Even Greenspan and buffet can't singlehandedly do that.  Plus Kevin is already rich... He doesn't need to troll anything.

Hes the cheapest rich bastard out there... I highly doubt he bought a sizable amount or we would hzve heard sbout it as he made money.

I saw him speak once in person.  He has a different vibe than how they make him out to be on shark tank
