Sure, a guy offered them a share in his poker winnings once, but are you going to give them a share of 21 million bitcoins? How, and by whose authority?
You're making this way too complicated. You get a share in the twenty on million bitcoins every time you buy one. You get a 1/21,000,000th of the total BTC economy. You need nobody's authority. You just need a seller.
Devil's advocate. They'll ask this if the question as to the ownership of the "idea" that is being pitched to them comes up.
It would be very easy to go into the Den and come off as boiler room salesmen, except selling currency instead of penny shares. Why bitcoin, why not FRN? That could use some help right now as the US govt is having to buy as other nations withdraw from taking more on.
And is the popularity of BTC to be gained by promoting it as an investment or as a usable currency? If it's as a usable currency, then these shows are not such a good idea.
