    Blockchain is actually pretty mature. I tryed to put one in place in the company I was 1 year ago, the IT director did not understood so it got trashed. But long story short, private blockchains are production ready since 1 year or so. It is a big deal because anything business related is stored in databases already and blockchain are a new kind of db that very few business companies use while it already solves a lot of common issues.

    Arguing against bitcoin is like arguing against the stock market. Also tremendous advantage of not having to deal with the government and its more valuable than the dollar and lets say john oliver gets deported back to england and all his dollars get confiscated by the gov. All he has to do is liquidate his bitcoin back home in england. Its really good.

    I googled 'Brock Pierce Scandal'. That lead to a link (top story after the wiki page), I read it and WOW. The part I was shocked over was "Those lawsuits stemming from 2000 alleged that the cryptocurrency co-founder had pressured them as then-minors for sex."

    To me the ideal of cryptocurrencies sounds like snake oil medicines their conman sold back in the day, to cure very real diseases, just a modern form of snake oil medicine. Yes our money is fiat money, yes it only has value because we assign value to it, but you can use the money in your pocket for goods and services, i have yet found in place in Dayton Ohio that accepts cryptocurrency as a form of payment. I do however think it is sending a notice to those who regulate markets and governments that the people are very dissatisfied , but using your hard currency to buy virtual currency is not how the population should send a message to those involved. Here in the USA only about %55 to %60 of people vote, imagine if that number hit %100 elected officials would get the message.

    I wish John would use dry, sarcastic humour like his 'cool' rather than the faux anger and swearing, which is over the top and goes on just a tad too long and he does it so many times. A well-placed F bomb can be the perfect punctuation, a la John Stewart.

    The reason Cryptos wont die out and why it doesnt matter what cryptocurrency you use, is because it is the equivalent of (lets use Amazon as an example) putting money into an 'Amazon Wallet' and sending it to someone else's 'Amazon wallet', then they can either buy something from Amazon directly without any extra fees (and the government not knowing, unless you tell them where to look), or send it to anyone else's 'Amazon wallet'. The big argument is, if Amazon is global and worth more than any country, why is your money safer in a bank that has to deal with corruption, government regulation, theft and fluctuation. Vs leave your money in your 'Amazon wallet', where it is safe and go up because Amazon is growing.

    Crypto in english. It is selling computing power. Renting out your hardware (mining is how it defines work. Bitcoin is just a digital bank that runs off of the 'rented' hardware. Ethereum is the same, but can be used to compute anything (Which is why the inventor thinks its better), it turns the mining network into a supercomputer instead of a global bank. That is why both survive in their own right and Bitcoin holds a higher value, because as much as we are willing to pay for computing power, we covet money above it, because its simple and usable anywhere, its unrestricted and will be there when you come back. Ethereum would make themselves vulnerable from internal attacks if they opened up the true use of Ethereum, while people cant see why Bitcoin is better than money, simply put it isnt, its the exact same thing as money as we know it today, just it doesnt crash with the country's economy, because it is linked with the world... and no banking fees, its like "money on the internet" 2.0 and when you want to hide your money in a sock drawer, you just need to save a number (paper wallet) that contains the only access to those coins that you have.

    The whole bullshit crypto-market is the reason I haven't been able to afford a damn graphics card for the last 5 years, so I'm quite pleased to see that they're mostly burning and dying out, that shit has got to go. It was absolute insanity from the very start; they invented a form of currency that is completely non-physical, has zero stable value, and can be magically "mined' from the aether of the internet in ways the average computer user could never even begin to comprehend.
