  • Crypto Jesus or Blockchain Jesus. . . Outstanding.

  • I will make my own cryptocurrency that I will trade only with myself.

  • Currency is irrelevant because it's a transaction mechanism rather than a store of wealth. Bonds paying negative interest simply funnel wealth holders into gold and silver.
    Zoomers salivating over the ponzi scheme bitcoin is, are missing that point, which is why facebook will eat their lunch.

  • Honestly can't tell if this was supposed to bash or promote Facebook. This guy just made a compelling argument for investing in Facebook stocks.

  • He's wrong about Britain not having a constitution.

  • 41:00, the explanation about fascism today…..

  • Great talk. This cheered me up after watching the Senate hearing with David Marcus.

    If Facebook gets regulatory approvals from the US government for it's Libra coin then won't there be impetus to impose bans on the use of cryptocurrencies that don't have these approvals?

  • Hey ANDREAS, starting at 30min, you say that a society should want their financial transactions private because we do not work as a penopticon.

    Do you think that society will begin to conform and we will end up sharing not just our financial data, but health and behavioral data too? I agree that privacy provides a layer of freedom that allows a social creature like ourselves to express their individuality. I love innovation and using technology in new waves that affect the way we live and interact.

    Is it possible that the government will actually realize its true role: governance (detached from monetary fiat value coupons)!

    I would appreciate it if you can make some videos about my questions.

    Thank you for work.

  • This man is doing gods work.

  • Just added Andre to my bucket list of people I will love to meet.This guy is a legend on d subject.

  • Facebook is in cahoots with the US government spy agencies. They will decide when to steal your money, spy on you, and control you through Libra.

  • What an epic video

  • The aggregate of the 4th Industrial Revolution technologies is simply put what I've coined – "The Computing Trinity": Cognitive + Connected + Distributed Computing. The first one is all about AI, ML, DL, RL, etc. The second one is all about IoT, Additive Manufacturing, VR/AR/MR, Drones, etc. The third and final one is all about Blockchain, Cryptoassets, and Cryptonetworks.

  • I never understood the principles of Andreas M. Antonopoulos. Bitcoin is easily traceable for FBI & Co. I would only support 100% PRIVATE coins: Tokenpay, BTCP, Monero. Libra is a bad joke.

  • monero. the end

  • Bitcoin: I will disrupt Banking.

    Libra: Hold my whitepaper.

  • There is nothing appealing about crypto currency – First heard about bitcoin in 2011 and still, not seeing the use for any of this. It's neat, the math is neat, as a thought experiment. What system will be able to pull off the next Martengale double-down of global debt? Maybe this – but who cares at that point. We are already past the event horizon.


  • Whoa!!

  • Brilliant video Andreas, thank you very much. I will try to share it on my soon to no longer be facebook page.
