News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

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

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!
