    I've dived in the Videos history and found this video, it's pretty incredible to break the points of this interview 5 years later to see where we're at.

    The finite number of Bitcoins mentioned needs elaboration.How does it as a digital currency encourage productivity, considering its adoption seems to reduce human participation in the workforce.

    I understand that each BTC can be divided into 100,000 Satoshis. Why can't one just use 1 Satoshi to register, say, one's house, or car, or whatever? And how does this generate value for the BTC?

    Have there ever been any Malware attacks on a Bitcoin system? As the value of the assets in the system increases the incentive to rob this new bank will likely follow.

    the 21 million number is impossible to change due to the algo. However, side chains can allow for other forms of cryptocurrencies but these will not be Bitcoin.

    To follow up with the 21 million number, is it possible this is not a permanent limitation? This a16z podcast brings up that question:

    I wish one of the questions were, why are there 21mill bitcoins, who came up with this amount?
