    What incentive would government have to undermine their own fiat currency monopoly, Raoul? I don't think it makes sense for government to have created something they cannot control.

      Depends which government. For US, yes probably, for another government - the chance to upend a system that possibly tips it more in their favour?

    You could change the date on this and re-issue it and it would all be even more relevant now. Or do a follow-up. Excellent insights.

    Bitcoin volatility will match major fiat currencies by mid 2019 ( One start-up is working on digitizing physical gold onto a blockchain. Think cryptocurrency backed by physical gold. (

    The strengths of Bitcoin are the definite ownership and history of each bitcoin, but this also is a significant weakness. If a group of governments enlists an army of programers who wins?

    Interesting comments on the 2 clearing organizations, definitely a risk factor to keep an eye on, if possible.

    Re: Monsoon: My bro started biz in India 5 yrs ago. 300 employees, pays himself what he pays them. Just left 4 vacation & govt told him he can't re-enter. He may lose everything. Risk here is high.

    At first I thought the video would be irrelevant due to the "old" date. Fascinating long-term view. I love the "Monsoon" concept. Will research that now in more detail on my own. Thx for the input!

    Bitcoin, $650, going to 1M well today Its $225 today. 65% decline. Are you still betting on that 1M?

    great talk about bitcoin. What is amazing is how many savvy investors do not 'get it'.... be interesting to hear what other interviewees say about may become history's biggest risk/reward bet

    One of the missing pieces here.. and what I see as the root of the current financial system problem.. is the social contract (unfunded liabilities) promises that have been made but can never be paid.

    Fascinating. The questions begging to be answered are what percentage of your assets do you hold as physical gold and also bitcoin and Bitcoin investments. Come on Raul and Grant fess up, please.
