BITCOIN’S price could drop to a shocking low of $2,800 per token in a “precipitous drop” as the cryptocurrency’s closing price over the last 50 days is close to its 200-day moving average which has “spooked” some analysts, it has been warned.
Try to sell ur ripple now cause it gonna crash on 03/24/2018 and it will be big and go down to below .30748 per coin

Not a currency. It's still just an asset. I don't hear people counting their end-of-the-day business revenue in bitcoin. :D
They accept it, then immediately trade it for a REAL currency.

Mr Oliver, do you have any idea about the level of destruction Bitcoin mining is bringing to the gaming industry? I can't buy a descent graphics card without blowing up my budget, because miners buy them by the hundreds,increasing demand, in order to set up mining farms. The same goes for memory chips as well and my only consolation is that when all this cryptocraze finaly looses steam, people will be selling GPU's by the thousands, bringing prices crashing down.

Well researched as always and the first topic I already knew a lot about before. Almost everything John Oliver was saying is right, especially at the very end (well, it was Key who was saying don't invest more than you can afford to lose but that's the most important massage of this whole video) Nevertheless, I will keep hodling, I'm ready to lose some money for the very small possibility of making a lot out of a small investment. I'm totally aware of the fact that this is nothing else but gambling. But as a mid-20 guy in a poorly paid job this is the only opportunity I have in order to save enough money for my retirement.

John Oliver is so fuckin dumb. Fuckin dumb as shit.
Currencies have value because they are backed by government.

Take American dollar, there are laws about all businesses must accept it as payment, you cannot deface or destroy the's a federal crime.
GDP, inflation, how powerful we are...makes a difference in perception of how powerful our money is.
The same could be said for all other countries what happens to bit coin if most people don't bother with it?

it's worth mentioning, that cryptocurrencies, and bitcoin in particular, are extremely convenient for black market transactions. and that is THE problem imo
xcho20 - Vor 10 Stunden
debatable. but i have no interest debating about it in the youtube comments. so let's leave it at that
MrManBuzz - Vor 10 Stunden
xcho20 And you student, should look into the fact Bitcoin transactions can be traced and have been done before. That's ironically one of the complaints some people have of Bitcoin.
xcho20 - Vor 10 Stunden
but professor, you of all people should know, that transactions are not tied to the identity of users. what good is the ledger then.
MrManBuzz - Vor 21 Stunde
xcho20 Wrong. There's a public ledger showing EVERY TRANSACTION EVER MADE in the case of Bitcoin and many others. Yes there as some that are privacy coins like XMR but they're a small niche in the crypo market. Please educate yourself more on the technology before you try to speak with authority on it.
xcho20 - Vor 22 Stunden
well, yeah, maybe. but i was talking about cryptocurrencies and the fact that they leave practically no money trail

When the Titanic hit the iceberg, the staff told people the ship couldn't sink and that they should go back inside instead of board the lifeboats. Now with the US fiat dollar all but dead since the inception of the Fed in 1913, people are choosing to face reality and get on a different monetary system, like crypto. However risky it is, the fact is no fiat currency has ever lasted without higher inflation. So of course the mainstream commentaries like John Oliver will do the bank's work of scaring people away from the lifeboats, and on this sinking dollar that the world is already leaving. Your savings, your investments, your future will go down with the fiat dollar too. Those that got on the lifeboats live on to tell about it, and that is just what people buying cryptos is doing.

if you really want to hedge your wealth, the safe and only option is gold. crypto is only good for speculative investment and black market transaction.
DetectiveRackham - Vor Tag
It is unfortunate fact that so many countries use the US dollar as the standard/backup currency, and that the US has military capability to force the change in opinion of anyone who dares to change that status. This is objective truth, and a reason why the US cannot really become bankrupt without taking the rest of the world down with it. It is not in my, or your, best interest to live through such a world.

Yup....keep yelling to common people that its "potentially dangerous investment" while the big banks are investing heavily in bitcoin.......what will this do is keep public away frm the investment while a few private banks will pool up most of it and again create a economic system as its now for some more years to come and come clean.

Something missing from the "all money only has value because we agree it has value" is part of why that is. The reason the USD has value for example is 2 parts:
1.) Any American business will accept it as itself (1$ pays -> 1$)
2.) The American government demands payment in it.
This is true for any currency tied to an economy: The Euro, The Renminbi, Canadian dollar, Mexican peso etc. Currency like bitcoin has nothing underpinning it's value. Right now exchanging bitcoin is (bitcoin -> x USD - > pays x USD) with it's primary value being determined by people believing they can sell it off at a higher price then what they bought it as.
