^ This is so time-consuming, I don't know if I'll be able to complete this. I think I did about 1/4 of the article. Following there is some mediocre explanation of Bitcoin's technicals and history, and then some stuff about other currencies, and a conclusion.

whats the conclusion?


The end is something like this:

"Are the alternate currencys a passing phenomena that will dissapear with the end of the financial crises or a sign of a big change in how the world economy is built and a hint at moving to a more stable global system that better integrates(?) local and worldwide."

It then ends with the quote from the end of the good wife (edited version):

Alicia:  Listen, I bought a Bitcoin last night.  It was thrilling."

Biggs: "Really? Cool , it's the future! Although I never actually explained how."

Alicia: "I don't know. It didn't feel real.

Biggs:   "Real's gonna change. Just watch."


EDIT: check out Menis full translation....

"We are just fools. We insanely believe that we can replace one politician with another and something will really change. The ONLY possible way to achieve change is to change the very system of how government functions. Until we are prepared to do that, suck it up for your future belongs to the madness and corruption of politicians."
Martin Armstrong

I added some more to the translation.

Upon closer inspection, the article contains numerous factual errors and unwarranted sensationalism. But as I said it's a bit better than what we usually have.

Thanks for devoting so much of your time in translating it. I've done some casual translation before and I found that it's both time and brain-power consuming.
