Last night, April 8, 2018, three programs on Showtime and HBO all mentioned cryptocurrency as legitimate stores of value in their plot lines

-Homeland ("Darwin loves bitcoin") -Silicon Valley (mining bitcoin, noting how volatile it is) -Billions (turning cash into cryptocurrency to evade government detection)

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

NBC just did one of the best stories on Bitcoin I have ever seen mainstream media do. Excellent explanation. Mentioned the drop but also pointed out its sustained growth dispute that drop.

The only criticism I have came from two bad quotes from a guy with the Digital Currency Group.

He said "bitcoin is an investment" . That's wrong. It's a protocol. This is what it really is and it's a very important thing to realize as the IRS and your accountant attempts to figure out how it should be taxed.

He also said " you will either make a lot of money or you will lose all your money" . That's completely wrong. Bitcoin will never be worth nothing, anymore than an ounce of gold will ever be worth nothing. People need to stop saying that. It's false and people in the industry especially should know better.
