thought it was very interesting,  I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on the interview and the points made, and also where they think Bitcoin will be when/if it takes place.

Informative interview.

While the author is very knowledgeable, kind of sense he is just another good salesman.

Jim Rickards has made several successful predictions over the years. The most recent to come true is China joining the IMF to position the RMB as a reserve currency. I think he is more than 50% correct. He thinks Bitcoin will fail. I disagree with him on that. I'll BM the link and maybe watch it sometime.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

He thinks governments will ban it, it's not a store of value, etc. He spews the usual FUD because he wants to promote gold. The same arguments can be made against gold.

One thing I've learned is to never listen to these so called experts. LEt's just see how the future pans out for bitcoin outselves and disregard anyone elses speculation.

Thanks for sharing this link.  I like listening to Rickards.  It is good to listen to Bitcoin skeptics especially when they are as smart as Rickards.

Well it was 5 months ago, and Bitcoin has been goind down, so for now he is somewhat winning.
I think tho, that BTC will be a legit place to store value, as long as currency goes, i dont think so. No one really cares to use BTC to buy stuff it seems.
