BITCOIN: MONEY IDEA FROM THE FUTURE?
I went on “AirTalk” with Larry Mantle yesterday to talk all things Bitcoin. It was a lively show, made all the more lively by Larry’s admission that, like a lot of folks, he didn’t know a thing about Bitcoin until about a week ago. I was able to fill him in and field a few comments during the broadcast.
What seems to blow people’s minds about Bitcoin, at least initially, is that it’s more of an idea about the money of the future than it is a well-functioning alternative currency today. I guess you could say it’s in beta right now. And that means it’s picked up a renegade reputation, by virtue of its popularity for buying drugs and porn.
