I was not able to verify if this was previously posted in a topic. But was wondering if anyone has seen this youtube video by two academicians analyzing bitcoin, and its potential future. Its one hour long, and quite interesting I might add.

These two academicians compiled data from blockexplorer.com; where all bitcoin transactions are recorded, were able to put out some interesting statistics, and termed bitcoin as "diamonds" rather than a currency (diamonds get traded as well). They make references to this very forum, in one instance, how they could retrace bitcoin transactions to some users. Curious to know what users here think since this video never popped up in a topic.

Beginning good.

Please ignore the economic analysis.

Dude doesn't have any expertise in economic analysis. Should be embarrassed to present crap like that in front of a live audience.

Discussion of Poisson process fit also garbage.

there were some threads about that congress (ok mostly german ones it seems)

also there is a major thread which addresses the scalability criticisms.

so now everyone interested in that thread has to dig for it (20 people?) instead of just one person: YOU! ;-)

Yes I thought he went a little over board with the economics I doubt any one knew wtf he was talking about(or understand his accent along with complex formulas?)
At least is Bitcoin press +1 to that.

I did, a while ago. Their attitude and the strawmen they set up were pretty annoying.

They made it sound as if the entire bitcoin community, including developers, believes in its anonymity. And, the world was just waiting for them to come in and repudiate this.

They made it sound like the bitcoin developers believed that a certain process is perfectly Poisson. That they have somehow found a huge theoretical anomaly by showing that there are deviations.

You would think these are academics, and would do their due diligence and research. How can they wilfully ignore statements made by every bitcoin developer about lack of anonymity?

Unfortunately, this seems to happen a lot in academia: If it's been /published/ before, you have acknowlege it. But, if something was done before you was never formally published, you can wilfully ignore it or selectively edit it even if it came straight from the horse's mouth. Heck, you can even steal it.

I'll have to take a look at this tonight. I'm quite interested to see what they say.
