Tech Visionary George Gilder: “Bitcoin is the Libertarian Solution to the Money Enigma.”

“Bitcoin is a breakthrough in information theory that allows [users] to conduct provable transactions that can’t be changed…without reference to trusted third parties,” says tech visionary and investor George Gilder. “[Bitcoin] is the perfect libertarian solution to the money enigma.”

When Gilder makes tech predictions, it’s worth paying attention. In Microcosm: The Quantum Revolution in Economics and Technology (1989) he described how the silicon chip would usher in a new information age. In TELECOSM: How Infinite Bandwidth will Revolutionize Our World (2000), he predicted the rise of hand-held computers and fiber optics. In Life After Television: The Coming Transformation of Media and American Life (1990), Gilder predicted that “telecomputers” would one day provide a limitless alternative to broadcast television. That was 15 years before the launch of YouTube.

Reason TV’s Nick Gillespie sat down with Gilder to talk about why he thinks Bitcoin is a revolutionary technology. The interview took place at FreedomFest 2014, an annual convention for libertarians held each year in Las Vegas.

Litecoin creator, Charlie Lee, Talks About Litecoin, Bitcoin, And Coinbase

Open your first bitcoin wallet on Coinbase here:

In this interview Charlie was kind enough to talk about his background, vision for Coinbase, and digital currencies in general. I asked him about these things:

1) His background: from MIT to Google.
2) Why did he create it and what is Litecoin? What is the difference with Bitcoin?
3) Why Coinbase and what will he work on? Will Coinbase be multi-currency?
4) Will other services like Wealthfront, Motif Investing,, Check, Google Wallet, etc. adopt digital currencies at some point?
5) Will traditional banks and brokers adopt digital currencies?
6) Will digital currencies occupy a primary or secondary roll in the future of money?

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss bitcoin converts and the dual risk of deflation and inflation for holders of euros. Max asks “how is the euro a store of value when the ECB can just TAKE it from you during a ‘bail-in?’ In the second half, Max interviews Peter Todd, Chief Scientist & Architect of Dark Wallet and ZeroCash to discuss Dark Wallet, cryptocurrencies and a government sponsored 51% attack on the bitcoin community.
