The biggest problem with Bitcoin is that the government controls the internet.
I know it can be blasphemy in some circles, but I really have to disagree here, at least for us older folk I think. I can't speak for everyone but
just a sampling I've talked to over time and no real variance in opinions.
The biggest problem isn't that the Government controls the internet. It's that this internet thing isn't REAL. Cash sucks...but if this network of
mind boggling complexity just craps out some day by human action, natural event or pure industrial or technological misadventure, 100% of everything
in this fantasy land is gone. *POOF*.. as if it never existed and telling folks it used to, won't buy a cup of coffee at Dennys.
It's absolutely blown me away and almost to laughing, despite how rude it would be, when talking to some of the younger generation at school. This
electronic fuzz of life has so totally fixated some, it's impossible to even conceive that a world COULD exist without it, let alone that it could
actually come about.
I'm more amazed it hasn't already come apart and by it's own sheer weight, if nothing else. The more I learn about networking, the more wonder I
have that it works at all ....and this is what to invest SERIOUS wealth or money into for storing currency? lol... Not this bunny. Not this life.
