The surge in a Bitcoin’s value has made millionaires out of people who loaded up on them early on—however briefly. Many of them are self-described libertarians, drawn by the idea of a currency that exists outside the control of governments. Some were so taken with the concept that they launched Bitcoin businesses, such as exchanges where people can buy the coins or exchange them for dollars.

Wow, Bitcoin really needs a PR department to help people craft what they say to the press so they do not come off like some NBA players on twitter.   Please be careful with your quotes (remember they are not going to use the 20 smart things you say, only the one slip up you make) for their goal is to make you sound greedy, crooked or strange.   
That "Bitcoin's Jesus" spent time in jail for selling explosives as "retribution" from a government that feared the 2% of votes he got in an election -- even makes a rabid supporter like me cringe.

Yo. Back the f**k up!

Charlie, Roger, Jered and Yifu have all done great things for the bitcoin community. They are passionate people. Wealthy from their convictions; they have no need to hold their tongue. None of these quotes were taken out of context.

'NBA players on twitter'? I think all of these guys would take exception to that. 

You are acting as if in the middle of being interviewed, Roger piped up and said "By the way, if you're looking for dirt, I have a firearms conviction that you could use to slander me."

Yifu probably make the most professional statement in the interview that protects this and projects a PROFESSIONAL, LONG TERM vision.   Speaking about how much you have made, and how much you are worth does not benefit.   As the reader, how am I to know anything about "what they have done" other than the line they are quoted FOR?   That is why they should release short statements with the message they want attributed to them.   Read it again from view of someone who has NO idea what bitcoin is.   
You should really figure out what the word slander means too because you seem to have NO IDEA.
