    ... Which brings me to Bitcoin, a fantastic implementation of Blockchain with so much promise that it’s hard to fathom the extent to which it may impact our lives. It has breathed life into what may potentially be the instigator of a new internet; so much promise but so difficult to use, it’s a situation that reminds me of another example from history ... (Apple vs Microsoft)

    ... We are, as I am writing these lines, witnessing a complete riot against some class of experts, in domains that are too difficult for us to understand, such as macroeconomic reality, and in which not only the expert is not an expert, but he doesn’t know it. That previous Federal Reserve bosses, Greenspan and Bernanke, had little grasp of empirical reality is something we only discovered a bit too late: one can macro BS longer than micro BS, which is why we need to be careful on who to endow with centralized macro decisions.

    ... As TMZ first reported, and the man himself seems to have confirmed, 50 Cent left his Bitcoin sales untouched until rediscovering them some time recently. At the time, he reportedly raked in around 700 bitcoins in album sales for his fifth album, Animal Ambition, which launched in June 2014.

    [​IMG]

    Mike Brown

    Inverse

    ... Proponents of blockchain tout its “trustless” structure, which has huge potential for other applications.
