Bitcoin’s awareness continues to increase in China as the new digital currency becomes prime subject of debate in China’s “most cutting-edge and most influential financial talk show,” a highly popular national TV segment with millions of viewers who are mostly in the high-income and highly educated demograhic.

The topic of debate is “Bitcoin, fortune maker or Ponzi scheme?” featuring professor Larry Hsien Ping Lang, described as China’s most influential economist. A controversial figure in the country who considers bitcoin worthless.

In 2014, after the price of the digital currency reached new highs with Baidu, China’s google, having previously announced they are willing to accept bitcoin payments, Lang famously refused 100 bitcoins offered by Bobby Lee, CEO of BTC China, now worth some $90,000, while discussing bitcoin on his show.

Let me ask, how you can become influential economist of modern age in China? I doubt this can be achieved by being skilled scholar of the subject.
Economy in China is dictatorship of Communist Party, to be renown economist, you need to be following rules of the Party.
I bet that for professor Larry Hsien Ping Lang the best currency in the world in Chinese yuan. He is not exactly the most independent authority if you ask me.

Let me ask, how you can produce an influential television show in the same modern age China? By featuring new, anti-government currencies? Roll Eyes

I'm wondering whether Larry Lang is really China’s Most Famous Economist? Refusing to take 100 BTC for free wasn't a wise decision. I think he might be that popular due to his frequent TV appearances and not because he is really a good economist.
