    I'm calling out Grant & Raoul to bring on Andreas Antonopoulos to provide a piece on Bitcoin for Real Vision. I'm almost certain, all viewers that want to understand Bitcoin would love his insight.

    Buying bitcoin is like buying a call option on a growth stock that never expires. As its use continues
    to expand and demand increases it will go up in value in the long term. Just buy some.

    Guido. They have a number of options that I'm aware of:

    1. Bitcoin Exchange.
    2. Use Escrow Service such as Local Bitcoin.
    3. Sell Bitcoin for cash to Greeks who wish to purchase BTC.
