    A quantum computer can crack all the passwords of all the computers in the United States in one second. What happens when a foreign country creates a quantum computer and then hacks bitcoin?

    In the description it says he's certified and anti-moneylaundering but he didn't once address money laundering.

    This isn't creating any economic growth as you try to claim it does. It simply maintains the value of your currency. If you cannot purchase bitcoin (with a 17k USD value) then how do you save your money? What about the bubble bit coin is in and when it pops. You say it great because it is unregulated but that also means there are no guarantees it won't drop to nothing tomorrow. Steam (a GLOBAL online computer game sales site/app) said that it would not be using bit coin because it is too "volatile."

    What's ravaging many countries' economies is not inflation: it's unchecked capitalism. The intention behind cryptocurrencies is good, but the reality is that they are in fact a Ponzi scheme, a scam. If you are reading this and you own cryptocurrencies, there are two options (1) you were sucked into it without fully understanding it, in which case sell it immediately and get out of the speculation game (2) you know what you're doing and you plan on scamming people of their hard earned money and goods, in which case you are a horrible human being.

    He hasn't researched it enough. Bitcoins are no panacea for poverty nor are they safe. As far as third party fees, if you trade P2P then yes you can avoid those but there are risks to P2P trading, including exit scams. If you use an exchange, those are being increasingly regulated around the world, including localbitcoins and others, and they do charge fees. Finally, the math can be manipulated. Don't throw all your eggs in a Bitcoin basket. If you did it two years ago, that was a very wise investment but I'd advise cashing out now rather than holding it any longer. Some things are too good to be true, and Bitcoin is about to burst.

    Before making decisions on monetary policy FED considers general economic conditions in the country, alternatives of monetary policy, forecasts of the economy ( FOMC 200 Phd economists conduct economic researchs on economic conditions, alternatives of monetary policy etc.). All of these are done in order to make money supply proportional to the total output of the economy. And, this is directly job of economists who studies the BEHAVIOUR humanbeings on decision making. So, how mathematical formulas could predict the behaviour of humans??? Moreover, if there is no any institution controlling the supply of bitcoin, and if it is produced at predermined rate every 10 minutes. How the total supply of bitcoin can be proportional to the total output in the economy???

    @Alexandra WTF are you talking about. This clown is not, and never, has been a professor. Juan doesnt give a flip about bitcoin..he only cares about Juan..he preaches bitcoin as a means to an end, the end being..his overinflated ego.

    China has banking services. They can buy things online. When you show this picture you should give more detail. Regional colors not whole countries.
