    What other crypto currency would you speculate with if Bitcoin dropped to much in price

    So many people are treating BitCoin like an investment when it was created to be a currency. If BitCoin market crashes many people (who didn’t do their BitCoin homework) may lose more than they bargained for.

    Your explanations are the best ever! Thank you for posting this and creating this. This is what BTC needs to become mainstream. Getting a basic explanation is damn near impossible and daunting for your average person.

    Wait a sec, I though a "bubble" had to do with credit/debt, that is, of money that was inflated — in terms of represented value on bank sheets (i.e. digital money in a bank account that really doesn’t exist or not backed by actual hard cash (e.g. Reserve Notes) — beyond it’s actual backing or existence? So how can bit coin be a bubble? Is not the amount of actual bitcoins in existence always (necessarily) equal to that reflected, in that we always KNOW exactly how many are in existence?

    Or do you simply mean to say that it can be overly deflationary, _SUCH AS_ occurs in the event of a bubble burst?

    I mean, for example, with the fractional reserve, fiat banking system, a bank can loan the same dollar to more than one person at a time, so, if one person deposits a dollar in A bank, and A bank loans that same dollar to another person, while still holding it in their account, then technically, they’ve just created and added one "dollar" into the economy, even though only the initial one actually exists (in tangible form). The risk in this, obviously, is if both people come to withdraw that dollar out at the same time, without the bank already having enough (or enough having been added in the meantime) to cover both. In such a case, that ‘phony’ dollar would have to disappear, causing deflation. We would say that, the extra dollar created via the loan, in that case, was the debt bubble (in the form of a liability to the account holder(s)), which suddenly popped, given that you obviously can’t give it to both. Right?

    Now, since there are no bitcoin banks (or entities/individuals) loaning out more bitcoins than they actually have, how would a bubble be created?? I don’t understand this. What am I missing? I really want to understand this.

    In a economy, in order to avoid the problems of the old days trade (good x good, or for example chickens for potatoes)gold and silver coins were created to simplified the transactions, with time and to further simplified this transactions the currency was created to represent that gold and silver…current currency represent a value in gold and other precious metals…so lets clear a couple of things out:
    1- There is not such a thing as "virtual cash" or "virtual gold"!!!! to say nothing about "decentralized digital currency"!!!….
    2- Therefore, how you can transfer "person to person" something that has NO EXISTENCE in the real world…?
    3- If it is no bank or government control, how this bitcoin is created or issued?
    4- If is free for control means i can create all the bitcoins i want…?
    I wouldn’t mess around with what i consider a highly complex scam that can take to you into a lot of trouble…mmmm

    +Chris Dunn don’t take my question as a knock against you, but merely an inquiry. Before I start let me just say I appreciate you putting this video together, BIG Thumbs up!. Now for my question…. Since the US Dollar is no longer backed by Gold and Silver, what still gives it value and why do people still base the value of another currency, such as BTC, off of it? My thought and research has led me to the conclusion that the USD in its current form is back by the full-faith and credit of the US ability to pay. The US in essence is issuing out IOU’s and the collateral it’s placing up is our labor(in the form of taxes and debt that we attach to our selves). So it would stand to reason that we’re merely changing one form of government control currency for a decentralized, highly encrypted one. From where I stand that can be a good thing and potentially bad. Good in the way that you and I are our own Bank and we can now conduct transactions unilaterally in private without any government intervention. In other words in the private. The bad aspect was played out during the height of the Silk Roads website.

    Who decided that the number of bitcoins would be limited. Who set the limit ? What can’t it be increased.

    Chris, in retrospect, would you agree that the price and projections 3 ears later, with a 14+ Billion market cap, more than half of the worlds currencies, has proven it to be quite viable for buy / hold ?

    Chris sorry if you’re already answered this but what software do you use to track bitcoin?
    Or if someone can tell me that’d be good.
