I think this is the beginning of Max fulfilling his and Tony's prediction of obtaining a million new Bitcoin users in 2012, as espoused at the Prague convention.

A next move would be to get Alex Jones fully on board.

Great video!

Max,

Love u Man!

However, Bitcoin is really backed by what has been invested in the Network, as in the people, USD's, electricity, time, effort, ingenuity, software, hardware, and efficiency, of which cryptography is just a part.

Some people mean 'backing' to mean a central authority promises (lies) to give you something else valuable in exchange for it. Bitcoin is not backed in that sense.

But in our case Bitcoin is the valuable thing itself. I almost think some people would rather a promise to pay bitcoin instead of bitcoin itself. Afterall the promise is 'backed' by somthing. Same thing with gold. A paper dollar used to be a promise that you could get gold, gold is not a promise to get anything and that's why it's better.

But somehow without central promises gold can be exchanged for stuff and so can bitcoin.

I'm a gold bug, and I love Bitcoin.

Anyone who understands WHY gold is good money should "get it" with bitcoin. Those who like gold for the wrong reasons probably wont, but whatev.

The comments on the youtube video about Bitcoin don't seem to be overly positive which is a shame. It's such a mystery to me to see those negative comments so strangely resemble trolling almost as if someone pays some people to write garbage about it.

My personality type: INTJ - please forgive my weaknesses (Not naturally in tune with others feelings; may be insensitive at times, tend to respond to conflict with logic and reason, tend to believe I'm always right)

most folks fear what they don't understand. also the "not backed by anything" again and again. it's not a rational, but psychological thing. we have to learn to deal with that.

You just described the comments on almost every youtube video in existence.

Bitcoin is not backed by any thing, because it's backed by people, by you: 2 billion internet users (soon  Grin)

That's because Max was a Wall Street trader even back before they became the one percent. He saw the corruption that led to the "Greed is Good" mantra firsthand.

Greed is good... Greed without bad consequences is the problem.

He said he would use his media leverage to promote bitcoin. Go Max! and: thanks to bitpay for working with him. The 1 million goal still stands?
