Hey all,

BitInstant's Charlie Shrem (Yankee) will be on live television today at 4:30pm EST.  Channel here: http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/NewsChannel/20111128/national-affairs-111128/

I think the MintChip guy, David Birch, will also be on at the same time, so there might be a duel!!! Perhaps they'll let me stand off-stage feeding info into Charlie's ear if needed. Wink

If you're in Canada, please call the network after the show and tell them how awesome the episode was and that they need more Bitcoin discussions.

We'll try to post a web video version when we can.

UPDATE: Video Link Here

He is one of the judges who will pick the winning idea in the MintChip challenge. The last time I looked using MintChip to buy bitcoins was miles ahead of all the other ideas. I believe that's what you'd call corporate trolling  Grin

I tried reading that slowly in my head and mispronounced it so I think I'll let it slide...

@charlieshrem and Dave Birch look at digital money. Is it safer than traditional currency? Find out here: http://ow.ly/bABm5 @CTVNews

I'm fairly disappointed by your reply to the "what is Bitcoin backed by?" question. I don't think they were looking for a lecture on "Econ 101: Supply and Demand".

Otherwise, good job!

You can't make a single currency work for Germany and Greece, so the idea that you can make it work for the whole world, or the whole solar system, is ridiculous.

Sound's like he's blaming the Euro for the crash, instead of the real problem, which is fractional lending mixed with deregulation and tax funded bailouts.
