28 gedachten over “Cryptocurrencies: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)”

  1. 4 years later and BitCoin is crashing. Even if it recovers, this just shows how volitive it is. It will never be anything but a niche money market scheme where people just keep trading their money back and forth to look virtual rich. And this is only if someone doesn’t accidentally throw their hard drive away. Here’s hoping crypto just becomes a meme of past scams that we can all laugh at marked by a picture of Logan Paul.

  2. In 2018, a month after this episode aired, EOS peaked at 18.76. By December it was down to 1.83. At the end of 2022 it is "worth" 0.88.

  3. Well, it all went a bit sideways, since then LOL. "The criticism began after a digital currency feature on HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, where Oliver prompted viewers to Google “Brock Pierce scandal.” Since then, searches for the term spiked, and it would appear that EOS is now removing Pierce from YouTube videos uploaded to its official channel".

  4. in case you were wondering the answer to the bitconnect guy is C, Cocaine

  5. bad thing is any one can see where the money goes and came from . for ever and ever.. you spend one bit coin and a million wallets later it ends up in some terrorist wallet that uses tornado once. and bam you are black listed from most exchanges. and if you ever get in trouble they will use that against you and good luck proving your innocence, .. even meta mask wallet collects meta data not just ip but how you type even the size of you browser. CIA is loving it. as much as their thor browser and freedom phone/

  6. just a short while after sbf was arrested, this whole piece rings painfully clear.

  7. Don't act stupid. It's a Pyramid Scheme, just like Business & Retail has and is today.
    Amway's a total Pyramid Co.

  8. I love how John Oliver just casually describes the entire career of the Monkees, but calls them the woofles.

  9. This has aged well. 2022 was not kind to crypto. That was before the SBX fiasco.

  10. ways bitcoin is different.
    1st off it was first by a long long margin, bitcoin started right at the internet age around 95 to give people some money to buy the next game or they planned ahead and wanted people to start buying dlc which was unheard of then, if they already have the account then its easier to put money in and start the account.
    2nd it was at 1 $ originally and they would give 5 bitcoins, this went down to a nickel for a long time but stabilized meaning they could pay out a nickel or close enough to control at that low cost around 2005, this means they planned ahead, had currency in every location and were set up to explode because even a 1 cent gain is 20%, so it traded and traded and currencies got put into banks around the word that could/would honor the transaction.
    no other nft has that, they could try by creating the bank at say 5% of total value but when there is a run on the currency, poof gone with the initial investor having first outs.

    thats the way it needed to be handled but no government did a thing about an illegal currency. jim kramer got involved at around 4000$ dollars and said its not legitimate but still invested and in comes the money, they tried to crush it several times but bitcoin is different as said above.

    i had 45 original bitcoins in 2000, did the proper 2 transactions for half a bitcoin each, they sent me an email trying to get me to sell, i refused saying it was illegal but probably the future, make me the richest person on earth using my bitcoins to backstop the other coins, it worked but my bitcoins got hacked at nmsu and they stole the billions on billions, yes also a billionaire from jobbs was and gates when they lived in albq and from harry potter, my mom moved to england and wrote it with jk in 91 92, book 3 clearly shows jk didnt write it, i started in 3rd grade for more spells playing d and d by myself, my wizards kept dying, the sorcerers stone is in the adv d@d 2nd edition, tome of magic top left corner. the manuscript for my 7th grade class was a 70 page spiral front and back with dice rolls in the margins, mr francomano said it was amazing and clearly my mom didnt think it was going to be as big as it was.

  11. Jacob Marley "Destroy this temple, and I will rebuild it in three days."
    Wealth does not consist of only money. Investors agree that most money comes from inheritance. Money only buys goods and services provided by others. In fact, money substantiates the least of the wealthy because it is only a lifeline or last resort. One can also be poor in available time, health, knowledge and scholarship, bloodline, trades skills, they can be guilty, poor in religious truths, land and raw materials, manufacturing, political understanding and place, rain or sunshine, self-defense, vanity, spirit, masculinity or femininity, inspiration, ideas, fertility, taste, sanity, and social stance.

  12. My wife and I were in London staying in an AirBnB a few years ago now. Hosts invited us to have some wine with them before we went out for dinner, so we did. They started telling us about this cryptocurrency they'd both quit their jobs to start doing full time and how "it was going to change the world". We sat with them, asked some questions and then had to leave for our dinner reservation. As soon as we were in the lift, I turned to my wife and said "Bitconneeeeeeeeeeeeeect!" and we both pissed ourselves laughing.
    These two sounded exactly as daft and ludicrous as that guy did

  13. You know the shame about blockchain is that it has real benefits but it's forever associated with bullshit speculative pseudo stocks now. It could make the internet a much safer place but fucking cryptards ruined it.

  14. How has this aged soooo good? 🍷 Block's wisdom is unmatched

  15. I want a future like bladerunner 2049,the rich people were the ones who beleived in self custody of btc,the scum are the ignorant people who didnt.And you wife is digital so when she mouths off at you,you use the on / off button.
