    Lol so basically he's an anti-crypto televangelist almost as bad as the crypto gods that he hate because he's just using the whole situation to make money from his book. If you're dumb enough to have not done your research, lost lots of money in crypto, and not understand why….that's your fault? Crypto could theretically go no where in the long term, but you not being smart about your money today isn't everyone else's fault.

    Why would anyone take this guy seriously after he stated that he studied Crypto from Gary Gensler’s Course “At MIT” lol!!!! He took the Free YOUTUBE class! And sure, you come out of that with lots of questions because that course is not to teach it’s for you to investigate more on the subject! You need to dig more… you can be skeptical… but you have to be objective as well. People like him will continue to be poor.

    I believe < that the inflation is already priced in crypto market since the end of last year. These manipulative rats are always 2 steps ahead of everybody because they are market makers. I hope I’m wrong and they won’t keep dumping it on retail investors as always. Those who hold the longest will profit the most, I trade and hold profits keep up the great work! and also Aron Craig has been doing a great job reviewing all chart, trade and techniques on BTC which has enhance the growth of my portfolio from 1.74BTC to 8.9 BTC lately. <You can reach Craig on ͲeIєɠɾαm👉Aroncraigsignal.

    That was a perfect ending! "As inflation goes up, Bitcoin goes down. That's an inflation hedge?"

    This actor needs to study more. I was a skeptic for 10 years until I started to get my feet wet.

    Mr. McKenzie is a very rare voice of reason in the crypto world. There's only a few big names willing to stick their necks out and speak the obvious….crypto is a giant house of cards. And with each day, it grows a bit taller. The post mortem report following the crash will read something like, "Never before in history were so many misled for so long".

    Wow what an idiot. I sure hope you read this. Number one how on earth can you suggest that there is no value in the network. Notice I didn’t say the bitcoin price. The network. Number 2 bitcoin hedge against inflation started two years ago when anyone with a calculator could determine where inflation was headed and went to 65k and 69k respectively, from 4k! Your face given at the truth that indeed btc is doing quite well says it all! The last time stocks where at these prices bitcoin was around well the same price it is now. Say Feb 28, 2021 so it has done no worse than stocks and destroyed them on the way up when inflation was inevitable. And here’s the thing at either 65k or 69k if Gensler approved a btc etf it would have stayed above 60k and it would have been broken into a millions of pieces beyond 21 million, ie fractions of shares and everyone’s grandparents would own a little.
