Over the last decade I’ve ignored anything whatsoever to do with Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency — instant toilet-flush of definitions, explanations, graphs, charts, market analyses. Sorry but I feel good about this. Like Bill Maher and many others I too believe…okay, sense that there’s nothing actually “there”, that it’s all hat and no cattle.

Maher: “I’ve read articles about cryptocurrency, [and] I’ve had it explained to me and I still don’t get it. And neither do you or anyone else.

“In 2008 an anonymous person or persons made up Bitcoin out of thin air by using the fake name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto“, which I think are the Japanese words for monopoly money.”
