    how old is this?? re: the exact year/date?? vs. the upload date??..because: a lot of good info..except her information re: mining on home computers, it's quite outdated..i mean, she did mention the more updated mining systems..but why mention the old way at all?? because, is anyone still doing it that way?? 🤔🤔🤔🤔

    so, kudos to her for explaining Bitcoin/crypto-currencies in-a-nutshell-style..she even gave me some nice ways to share the info with those who have questions (otherwise, i don't try to convince people)..but really, the first 85% or so of her talk was pretty good..but that last 10% to 15% made it seem like she was conflicted re: explaining mining and also the crypto part of crypto-currencies re: the point & original philosophy behind Bitcoin [& other true cryptos]. 😮

    Where are all these haters from last year comments? =)
    Buying BTC now for the current price of 13/14k$ or waiting for a bubble? lol

    It is about tracking and controlling people even more. The future is not a pretty place, only useful idiots, brainwashed Marxists think so and can't imagine the negative consequences.

    At what point does the blockchain become so big it is untransferable? Is this another race betweem hardware and software?

    Next time dress more professionally before presenting in front of an audience. You looked tacky and it brought the message down.

    Hey guys,
    I am about to receive 5 free coins that could be the next Bitcoin and it was free. I just registered at no cost to get information about how digital money like Bitcoin are going up in price faster than gold. If you just click on this link http://digitalfrontiernews.com/?affiliates=272 and register for the free information you will get 5 Cloud Coins that are activated. I don’t know how long these coins are available so go register now. FYI, 5 free Bitcoins would be valued today at $35,000 at today's value. Check out the link and get your coins!! http://digitalfrontiernews.com/?affiliates=272
    Thanks
