    Good interview - these are good questions. I'm wondering about the reverse. For the non-investors who were mining bitcoin in their parent's basements in 2010 and now own substantial sums, how do you convince them to apply sound investment strategies to what was essentially gained by good fortune?

      Why do we need to convince them to apply sound investment strategies?

    Sounds like it's to early to position trade options " Leaps " similar to other investment vehicles...i.e commodities ?

    Good interview but you say litecoin is a fork of bitcoin. This is incorrect. Litecoin is a clone of bitcoin. A fork means that they fork of the original chain. Litecoin copied the bitcoin code and started their own chain.

      That's called a fork from a software development point of view.

    Can someone explain more about the commodity charts from 50s and 70s that Chris mentioned? Any specifics of meaning or what type of charts to find. Thanks
