The first article for the blog is a collection of graphics that feature short quotes from well known thinkers, businessman and celebrities on their thoughts on crypto, bitcoin and blokchain.


Bill Gates, Co-founder of Microsoft

"I think it's [Bitcoin] a technical tour de force, but that's an area where governments are gonna maintain a dominant role."



Sir Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Galactic

"Well, I think it is working. There may be other currencies like it that may be even better. But in the meantime, there’s a big industry around Bitcoin. — People have made fortunes off Bitcoin, some have lost money. It is volatile, but people make money off of volatility too."



A second quote from Sir Richard Branson

"Virgin Galactic is a bold entrepreneurial technology. It’s driving a revolution. And bitcoin is doing just the same when it comes to inventing a new currency."



John McAfee, founder of McAfee, Inc.

"It will be everywhere and the world will have to readjust. World governments will have to readjust."



A second quote from John McAfee

"It is not a speculative investment even though it is being used as such by other people. As Bitcoin network grows the value of Bitcoin grows. As people move into Bitcoin for payments and receipts they stop using US Dollars, Euros and Chinese Yuan which in the long-term devalues these currencies."



Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google

"[Bitcoin] is a remarkable cryptographic achievement,” he said on a panel. “The ability to create something which is not duplicable in the digital world has enormous value."



Ben Bernanke, former chairman of the US Federal Reserve

"Virtual currencies may hold long-term promise, particularly if the innovations promote a faster, more secure and more efficient payment system."



Tim Draper, venture capital investor

"This is bigger than the internet. It’s bigger than the Iron Age, the Renaissance. It’s bigger than the Industrial Revolution."



Stephen Colbert, Comedian

"[Bitcoin] It’s gold for nerds."



Edmund Moy, 38th Director of the United States Mint

“Bitcoin, and the ideas behind it, will be a disrupter to the traditional notions of currency. In the end, currency will be better for it.”



Chris Dixon, Investor and Enterpreneur

“Three eras of currency: Commodity based, e.g. Gold. Politically based, e.g. Dollar. Math based, e.g. Bitcoin.”



Leon Louw, two-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee

"EVERY informed person needs to know about Bitcoin because it might be one of the world’s most important developments."
