In the short term, I'm most excited by consumer facing tools like Purse.io and Foldapp. I think both of them have the ability to drive millions of new people to start using Bitcoin. I'm also excited about services like Bitwage that make it easier for existing businesses to do their payroll in Bitcoin. In the slightly longer term, I'm more interested in tools like Bitcoin Hive Mind.Hi Roger!
Thanks for all you do - that's a great summary page.
1-- As this industry grows its harder every day to keep up with who's who and what is being done.
2-- What projects and types of tech are you most excited about?
I think lots people think that I have time to read everything about everything. Unfortunately I don't. From the small amount I do know about Ethereum, I think it will be an amazingly useful computing platform, so I'm very excited about that. I'm not as optimistic on the future value of ethers.3-- You are probably the most tireless Bitcoin advocate....what do you think of projects using related technology like Ethereum?
My opinions on this are not strong though. Please refer to my Murray Rothbard quote from above.
I think that's why we get along so well!4-- I'm totally in line with your political beliefs, they are a solid base for many in this industry--
I've had more than one billionaire tell me privately that they agree with the things that I say, but that they can't say those same things publicly. I'll let them come forward when they are ready, but I think this shows that there is even more of a reason for all of us to speak up. If each of us remains quiet about calling the state a violent criminal gang, with no moral justification for the the things that it does, then everyone around the world who thinks these things privately, will feel alone. The more of us that speak up and point out that the military draft is the moral equivalent of kidnapping and slavery, war is mass murder, and taxation is theft, the more additional people, who previously felt alone, will be willing to speak up and have their voice heard. All it takes for the evil doers in government to cause so many problems for the world, is for the rest of us to stay quiet. I'd also like to point out that I don't think people in government are intentionally committing evil and destructive acts. I think the vast majority of these people have never had it pointed out to them that what they are doing is morally wrong, and economically destructive. I wasn't born thinking these things myself either. It wasn't until I was exposed to these ideas, backed up by logic and facts, that I came to see government for what it really is. I hope my own speaking up will embolden others to speak up as well. I posted it before, but I think this video really does an amazing job summing up the immorality of most state actions. Please consider sharing it with your friends and family.how do we best welcome more executives and investors to bitcoin who may have different views?
