Robert Breedlove, CEO and CIO of Parallax, joins Real Vision to explain the difference between hard money and soft money. He uses the history of money and global monetary systems to argue that bitcoin is the "hardest" form of money in existence. Breedlove argues that, because bitcoin has solved the classic "divisibility problem" presented by gold, it will eventually replace gold as the anchor of a new monetary system.
