The Kaiser report touches upon the topic of cyber currencies, and p2p currencies in particular:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMngK0t5WkY

I wonder if the report was actually inspired by Bitcoin? I am currently watching the show, and they haven't talked about the cyber currencies yet.

EDIT: Yes, they are talking specifically about Bitcoin. I guess this is the first mention of bitcoin on mainstream media.

Is he really "mainstream"? Good publicity anyway.

edit: So, I guess he is on tv, was this particular clip on tv?

Russia Today is an international channel that tries to give the Russian perspective on foreign policy and news. It broadcasts mainly through satellite and via youtube. In that respect it isn't really mainstream in the United States, but I think it has quite a substantial following internationally.

I saw it, and they were actually talking about goldsilver.com, and when bitcoin was mentioned, it was in his usual takin the piss mode, not advertising.. Bitcoin sounds good, but after a few hours of looking into it, I can safely say, My money's on the gold, this bitcoin is only for those WITH the money that is no longer available to over 80% of the world...

It's very much possible that some of Keiser's watchers convert part of their gold into bitcoins, as I do.

That's just his way. He's great, a complete gold bug but an education, his show is how I found Bitcoin too. At first I'd thought bitcoin was finally an implentation of the Money As Debt CreditCoin actually.

Anyway Bitcoin isn't a company so PR doesn't count in the same way, and it doesn't matter if at first it's just a few wealthy mavericks using it to play monopoly among themselves. The more it's used as trade, the more people invest in the stuff, the more it's future as currency is assured. If it can happen to QQ money and WoW gold it can happen to this. I reckon bitcoin is in an incubation period at the moment.

my attempt to learn about bitcoin was an unmitigated and disaster. who knew magic beans would turn out to be such a big fucking deal. my regret is the cost to others, which has shamed me.
