  1. Hey! Have you ever tried – Brians Bitcoin Big Bang (should be on google have a look)? If you are intent on making money with Bitcoin, I have heard some decent things about it and my father got amazing benefits with it. 

  2. Hiyaaaa! Have you heard about – Brians Bitcoin Big Bang (search on google)? If you are seriously interested in making money with Bitcoin, I have heard some unbelievable things about it and my father got excellent benefits with it. 

  3. Red Flag Act paranoia. [the act that killed the thriving and vibrant car industry in UK while America let it run to great success]

    It would make perfect sense to start a business outside of New York where your business would not be regulated by people who don't understand it. NOBODY actually completely understands digital currency at this point. It's too new and evolving too fast. 
    PS: Any part of the planet that is NOT New York does not make it a dark corner of the world…asshole.

  4. This man will be looked at in retrospect as one of the leaders of the ludites/corporate shills that drove the vibrant cryptocurrency industry away from new york. Why is bitcoin focussed on and attempted to be regulated to uselessness when there have been NO punishments handed out to JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs for their participation in poisoning the world economy in 2008?  No, they get billions of fiat in reward for their criminal business practices..  What's up with New York?  A recent attempt to investigate the safety of buildings (NYC High Rise Safety Initiative) was thwarted from being added to a ballot when all it was trying to do was find out why buildings collapsed due to fire in 2001?  I am so glad I don't live in this backward state..

  6. “When I consider and weigh in my mind all these commonwealths, which nowadays anywhere do flourish, so God help me, I can perceive nothing but a certain conspiracy of rich men procuring their own commodities under the name and title of the commonwealth. They invent and devise all means and crafts, first how to keep safely without fear of losing that which they have unjustly gathered together, and next how to hire and abuse the work and labor of the poor for as little money as may be."  ~ Sir Thomas More, [1478 – 1535] 

  7. First thought…who the fuck R U? when they allow HSBC and the rest of their banking cronies to get away with laundering billions of there masters drug monies..they are nowhere to be seen to regulate and protect consumers…. FUBAR

  8. Look, I want to hate this guy as much as anyone, but in all honesty I actually think he is doing his best given the circumstances.  Three comments:

    1.) The ENTIRE keynote at Money 20/20 was about bitcoin.  I think btc-related companies make up something of the order of 15-20% of all those represented at Money 20/20.  Not bad…
    2.) There is a LONG way to go until all this is finalized.  We in the bitcoin complex are used to developments taking place at an rapid (and sometimes unrealistic pace), especially given we are now dealing with Federal bureaucracy.
    3.) Definitely the least relevant, but still material, point is that I have traditionally been good at judging (for lack of a better term) character, and he really does seem to be an alright guy.  It is hard to fake authenticity to those trained to spot its absence.  I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Keep in mind that while I might not like or agree with regulation, I realize it is inevitable and will serve an important function in highlighting the advantages of cryptocurrency in the long run.
