Yet despite its growing popularity, Bitcoin possesses the power to be significantly detrimental to our society.

Statist strawmen and fallacies galore.

Followed by some wonderful reader comments to set him straight.

Nice to read a negative article that gets the facts right, even if it's completely alarmist and contains a totally unsubstantiated prediction (that Bitcoin won't be widely adopted), after listing all the reasons why it's so well-designed and has been so successful so far.

I actually agree with the author on Bitcoin's potential to disrupt at a deep level the political and social status quo, except I disagree that this is a bad thing. Sure, there will be chaos -- growing pains. We'll all be better off in the long term. Except the Bilderberg Group that is...

Thanks for reading it for me, I hate to give HuffPo any clicks for their mediocre articles. Most of them tend to be "linkbait" anyway.

I am involved in bitcoin for that very reason, that the disruptive nature of it will finally allow the "little guy" to clawback some freedom that we lost a long time ago.

He was completely wrong about the reasons that bitcoin is disruptive.  He made it sound as if the disruption comes from criminal activity that is impossible to stop because bitcoin is anonymous.
