Charlie, well done once getting past the initial nerves. Cheesy

edit:  what i liked most is that when you're relaxed you're able to speak about alot of important concepts quickly which is helpful when you don't have alot of time.

But he doesn't buy the idea of it becoming a, "uhh, World Currency, or, Galactic Currency," or... something.
Who proposed Bitcoin as the currency of the Solar System? That was a strange, enjoyable digression. Smiley

Are there any 7-11s or CVS in Canada?

Canada has 7-11s and Walmarts but you can't buy bitcoins at any of them yet.

when an interviewer asks you what is backing Bitcoin say "it is backed by hundreds of thousands of ppl who have made a conscious decision to not let their govt's devalue their money every time a bank demands a bailout".

when someone like David Birch says that fiat money is backed by the govt's power to tax don't just let that go w/o a response.  say "oh that's just great...you mean our gov't can not only devalue our money by printing it for their own purposes but also back that same money by taking even more of it away from us via taxes?".

Hundreds of thousands? Come on 'doc. If that were true, we would be seeing entirely different price levels.

When they ask what is Bitcoin backed by, the best response is to ask back what is gold backed by, and whatever clever answer they can come up with you can 100% guaranteed just as well apply it to Bitcoin, it's that simple.

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)

i'm not sure that's not out of the question.  and if it is, who cares? we're close.

these types of interviews are strategic opportunities not to be wasted.

And you can say back Bitcoin is cool, is used to instantly transfer value across the globe for dirt cheap without middlemen, solves the two generals problem of consensus, ect ect

see how that works?

Having appeared on Canada's BNN multiple times I can agree that one can get fairly nervous when they know hundreds of thousands or millions of people will be watching. But you did a great job and the more you appear the less nervous you will be.

I think you did a great job of responding but doing so in a fairly diplomatic/political way since most people are still in the Matrix. Awesome job!

yes that's one thing i noticed, some of what was said "We will put them out of businesses"  Lips sealed  wasn't so diplomatic. say "bitcoin is a new competitor to WU and in some ways better." or something to that effect

its a good thing you didn't say bitcoin could replace the dollar, the people of the matrix would hate you for it, they love their paper bills, and they dont want to here how its a ridiculous system. it was cool the other guy said that for you "fiat will die, soon too" yes, thank you Dave!
