‘Bitcoin better than any form of money that has ever existed before’ — rt op-ed money bitcoin

RT: why do you think this moscow bitcoin

Conference is important?

Roger ver: bitcoin is a global phenomenon. It’s

Important to everybody on the entire planet. Anybody who uses

Money, bitcoin is important to them.

RT: russia isn’t banning bitcoin but when it

Comes to russia’s central bank and prosecutor’s office, they are

Against it; does that suggest bitcoin is not welcome, is that

Going to change do you think?

RV: I don’t have a direct insight into what goes

On inside of russia but one guy at the conference just a moment

Ago when I asked that same question, he said nobody cares, so

That may be the attitude of the people within russia. And at the

End of the day nobody can block or stop or prevent anyone using

Bitcoin if they want to, it’s just a protocol and it just works.

RT: if you had to name three reasons why

e money bitcoin

Bitcoin is better than traditional money what would they be?

RV: bitcoin is the first time anyone can send

And receive any amount of money with anyone anywhere on the

Planet. So that’s one reason.

You can now send and receive that money without having to pay any

Fees to western union or a bank or anybody like that, so there’s

A second.

And it’s impossible to have your account frozen or seized, that’s

Just three out of many. I can go on for hours and hours. But

Bitcoin is so much better than any form of money that’s ever

Existed before in the history of the world.

RT: what other reasons are there?

RV: no counterfeiting, right? When you or I

Counterfeit money, we go to jail for counterfeiting, when central

Banks do it, they call it fancy names like quantative easing or

Economic stimulus. With bitcoin that can’t happen.E money bitcoin there’s a

Fixed supply of bitcoins, there will never be more than 21

Million bitcoins and that’s a fantastic benefit that bitcoin has

Over traditional government issue currencies.

Another issue is that there are no charge backs, once you’ve been

Paid with bitcoin you know the money is yours and you don’t have

To worry about it being taken away from you months later like you

Do with a credit card or other forms.

RT: one of the reasons not to use bitcoin is

That it can be used for drug purchases and money laundering, is

There a way for it to become safer without losing its

Independence?

RV: if other people are using bitcoins to buy

Drugs or launder money, it’s not a danger for me, it’s a danger

For those people who are getting caught, and it doesn’t affect my

Bitcoins either way at all.

RT: bitcoin’s price has been on a roller

e money bitcoin

Coaster, it went beyond a thousand dollars last year and now it’s

Less than 500, how can you possibly rely on such a currency?

RV: if you look at it over the last couple of

Years, anybody who bought bitcoin at any period and held it for

More than one year, their bitcoins are worth more now than when

They initially brought it.

So yeah there’s lots of ups and downs and volatility in the

Market but the overall trend has definitely been up and it’s

Going to continue to be up as bitcoin gets more and more

Popularity around the world.
