Interesting. The guy states if banks shutdown, credit company's and paypal shutdown too, only online payment that will be working will be Bitcoin, because it's not tied to any currency. Who ever that does not have a bitcoin account should go ahead and set one up just as a contingency, yada yada yada.

Thanks for the link, Possum. Here's another, but not sure if Bitcoin was mentioned in this interview, but if it was, would somebody be kind as to post the link (YT timestamp) for others to enjoy, for I don't have the time currently to listen to the whole interview. 201110.12 Coast to Coast am James Wesley, Rawles Survival http-

Also, this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Wesley_Rawles#Secret_ranch_location

Quote
An article published by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in 2008 asserts that Rawles lives in California, but later in the article, Rawles noted that the location of his ranch in the US is kept secret. "We don't actually reveal our location, even at the state level, All that I'm allowed to say is that we're somewhere west of the Rockies. We intentionally keep a very low profile. We just don't want a lot of people camping out on our doorstep the day after everything hits the fan."[46] The German FAZ newspaper asserts that the ranch is in northern Idaho.[47] Others have claimed that the "undisclosed location" of the ranch is in Nevada, Utah, Wyoming or even in Central America.[1] A CNN Europe article written before his wife died noted that Rawles "...lives on a ranch in an undisclosed location with his wife (who he refers to in his blog affectionately as "the Memsahib") and their children. Their life is almost entirely self-sufficient: They keep livestock, hunt elk and the children are schooled at home. Stored away in the ranch somewhere is a three-year supply of food."[48] In an article titled "The Most Dangerous Novel in America", Rawles told The Daily Beast: "I’m not at liberty to discuss where I live. It’s part of an agreement I made with my wife. I really can’t go into the details. We live in a very remote area. I embrace technology. We don’t live in a cellphone area, but I’m online constantly. We’re just prepared to live off-grid, if the power grid goes down. Because of the nature of my blog and my novel, I don’t just want anonymity, I need anonymity. I could wake up some morning in the aftermath of some crisis and look out in my barnyard and see five Winnebagos and some TV crews. I don’t want fans of my books to descend on my property, so I have to be perspicacious."[49] In 2009, Rawles told an Agence France-Presse reporter: "I'm surrounded by national forest. A river runs through the back end of the property, so there's no shortage of water and no shortage of fish or game to shoot. If Western civilization were to collapse tomorrow, I'd have to read about it on the Internet. I just wouldn't notice."[50]

This now begs the question: Does Satoshi Nakamoto have a family that he tries to protect--choosing anonymity--if his Bitcoin thingy sprouted legs?

That was ignored by Jones. I would like to see the footage of Alex's face that didn't make the edit.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
