All you guys who railed for years against crypto,
should go over to the “voting by blockchain” thread.
Same typewriter thinking over there.

Digital e-commerce.
Digital dollars.
Digital voting.
Paper dollars and paper ballots are a relic.
Digital is faster, cheaper, safer.

Oh please don't post something 27 minutes long. Just tell me about it with a link. When the good Lord was handing out patients I said I don't have time to stand in this line.

Don't have 27 min? You had 7 years to keep posting the same crap over and over in this thread.
No I changed my opinion from Bitcoin is purely worthless to it serves a purpose for the rich with big money to transfer. Once the big banks saw it and found a way to profit from the exchange I changed my opinion.

can you cross national borders with them (or even state borders)?
You can cross state borders with them as long as you don't hang them from a rack in the back window of your pickup truck, like the good ole days. ;)

I travel with my toys all over the US and have been doing it for years.

Its not a good idea to take them into Mexico or Canada though.

Bitcoin price up 72% since January 1.
It's speculation investing at it's finenst. It's like investing in a .com when it has yet to turn a profit and has already gone up 2000% in price. People see it going up and want in, so it goes up more.

Some people have timed bubble investing correctly, whether by luck or genius (usually luck because few have crystal balls), but it's a like going to the casino and saying you are investing for your retirement.

If you need to move a large sum of money then bitcoin et. al. might serve a purpose. Otherwise it is a tool the common man does not have any use for. Its price has increased only because more criminals are using it. The fact that a few people play with it is irrelevant.

Your comments are not worth my inundating everyone with press reports of how crypto is not widely used by criminals...in fact statisticS show criminals overwhelmingly prefer cash.

Those comments were debunked years ago. A hundred pages ago.
Like all ‘isms, internalized fake news can linger long after the facts are known.

Crypto use is growing exponentially.
The crypto market cap is up $100billion in the last 4 months.
In some parts of the world, crypto is the only reliable, non-inflationary currency.

In much of the world, “common men” send Small denominations to their home country.
As we can appreciate, these workers cannot afford a US$75 bank wire fee.
Crypto remittances are drastically reducing these costs.
MoneyGram is using crypto to remit from several countries for $4.99.

Crypto use to be a novel concept.
Then it became a crazy investment.
Now it is in the adoption phase.
And it will mature into disruption and displacement of fiat.

Sorry sir,
I think your opinion is outclassed:

https://www.xrpchat.com/topic/35493...rmer-co-president-of-morgan-stanley-zoe-cruz/

Zoe Cruz recommends putting 1 to 10% of your assets into crypto.

And who is she?
Only the former President of Morgan Stanley!
A Stanley 25 year employee.
Only a Harvard Univ. magnum cum laude.
Considered the most powerful woman on Wall Street.
Know affectionately as “the Cruz missile”.
Her recorded highest earnings?
Year 2006 alone = $30million

I think maybe she has some standing in financial investment circles.

I will refer you to the discussion about eliminating the $100 bill and why we do not have larger bills.

Crypto currencies have two buyers speculators and those moving large sums of money secretly to avoid many restrictions.

Crypto currencies have not been around to use the phrase "years ago". Crypto currencies have exploded in value because of demand. That demand has not been to use them as money (as a mode of exchange of goods and services). It has been for the use as an evasion tool and by many small speculators.

I admit crypto as a concept will likely be the next evolvement of money. Which crypto currency will be generally accepted based on general confidence, I do not know.

None the less the money being make by current crypto currency dealers are the big financial banks. They get a cut of every transaction going through them.
