24 Thoughts to “Cryptocurrency, Blockchain And Digital Currency: The Impact On The Markets And Governments | CNBC”

  1. The explanation about digit currency and crypto currency is pretty bad

  2. This is a pretty dumb clip, the speaker has no idea what he's talking about. We're already using digital dollars, it's called Visa/Master. Cryptocurrency is meant to be uncorrelated to a government's quantitive easing aka printing money BS, like alternative gold. Go read some books.

  3. we need Government Digital Currencies so that we can printing 2 Trillion of these each year to make it stabilize price instead of a limited Bitcoin supply that is so volatile . Good work CNBC

  4. how clueless this guy is. he doesn't understand the difference between coin and exchange

  5. its not just the time or cost it's the fact it is not inflationary like fiat .

  6. how is it too speculative for corporations all i see is more and more of them buying bitcoin.

  7. i think many of bitcoin proponents are in it because the government did not issue it.

  8. what is not speculative is holding fiat currency. due to inflation its purchasing power can only move down

  9. Got that cryptology

  10. The purpose of the Cryptos is decentralization!!! Hence no Central Authority controlling your wealth. These guys must enjoy being slaves!!

  11. My credit card is pretty fast at making payments. These guys miss the point entirely about Crypto.

  12. If any Canadians are wondering what domestic exchange to use to buy Bitcoin, Ethereum & Litecoin, try this:

    QuadrigaCX is Canada's longest running cryptocurrency exchange and since it's inception, has never been hacked or compromised. They also have an active pressence on the subreddit /bitcoinCA should you need to get in contact with them.

    If you're looking for a slightly easier and cheaper way to buy Bitcoin, you can also try nTrust , they just recently came onto the market and so far they've been way better than most other Canadian exchanges in my opinion, both in terms of overall price and fees, plus they have great customer service that got back to me within 24 hours of e-mailing them a question. They have a variety of funding options, including being listed as a "Payee" if you're with a Credit Union.

    You can use my ref code where you and I both get $2 for signing up, so it's a win-win.
    My ref code is: ale532

    If you decide to use my referral code and/or address, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to do so!

  13. Get free from Central Powers control by using decentralized currency. The future economy will be totally digital and decentralized. Bitcoin is a worldwide-distributed decentralized peer-to-peer censorship-resistant trustless and permissionless deflationary system/currency (see Blockchain technology) backed by mathematics, open source code, cryptography and the most powerful and secure decentralized computational network on the planet, orders of magnitude more powerful than google and government combined. There is a limit of 21 million bitcoins (divisible in smaller units). "Backed by Government" money is not backed by anything and is infinitely printed at will by Central Banks. Bitcoin is limited and decentralized.

    Receive and transfer money, from cents (micropayments) to thousands:
    * Cheap regardless of amount $$$ sent (Soon again with Segwit+LN)
    * Borderless (no country can stop it from going in/out or confiscate)
    * Trustless (nobody needs to trust anybody for it to work)
    * Privacy (no need to expose personal information)
    * Securely (encrypted cryptographically)
    * Permissionless (no approval from central powers needed)
    * Almost Instant (from seconds to a few minutes)
    * Open source (auditable by anybody)
    * Worldwide distributed (from anywhere to anywhere on the planet)
    * Censorship resistant (no government can stop its use)
    * Peer-to-peer (no intermediaries with a cut)
    * Portable (easier to carry/move than cash, gold and silver)
    * Public ledger (transparent, seen by everybody)
    * Scalable (each bitcoin is divisible down to 8 decimals)
    * Decentralized (distributed with no single point of failure)
    * Deflationary (its supply goes down with time until reaching 21 million ever)
    * Immutable global registry (can’t be altered/hacked by nobody)
    * No chargebacks-No fraud ('push' vs' 'pull' transactions).

    And that’s just as currency, Bitcoin has many more uses and applications.

  14. For the people who still don't understand bitcoin, please do your research. You will never have an opportunity like this ever. Keep accumulating gold, silver and bitcoin and you and your family will be sitting pretty for life. The future economy will be digital and decentralised. Besides financial health, we need to invest also in mental, emotional and spiritual health, but once covered your physical needs, everything else becomes much easier.Get some bitcoin now, it will continue to increase in value for decades to come, since it's limited and ever more useful for more and more applications.

  15. no one talking about the elephant in the room

  16. "Cryptology" – boom, discredited. lol damnit cnbc do your homework

  17. Propaganda floods the web. Do a little research on your own before listening to anything. Knowledge is power. Happy Holidays to All!

  18. want to retire early? now is the time to invest in bitcoin:
    What most people don't understand is how ridiculously rare A full bitcoins are given that there will only ever be 21 million bitcoins. The earth population is over 7 billion, So for most people it will not be about owning one or more bitcoin, it will be about having bits or Satoshis. There are exactly I00,000,000 million Satoshi units in each Bitcoin. Check out the value of one Satoshi . When bitcoin enter into its third phase, 100,000 Satoshis will support A family for generations, like one million dollars did back in the 19th century. tired of waiting on Coinbase? The cheapest and fastest way to buy $10 to $100,000 of Bitcoin is at get your bitcoin in 6 hr. "BUY & HOLD" you've been WARNED..


    #CommonPSBwallet as Fiat #CRYPTOCURRENCY

  20. The us dollar is currently 98% digital so the fed releasing there own crypto is pointless.The reason bitcoin exists and the reason people invest in it is because of its decentralized nature.No government or entity can ever control or silence Bitcoin it’s immutable.

  21. everyone will just buy bitcoin with the govenments stolen idea…

  22. no currency issued by a central bank will overtake bitcoin.
