The top 10 things everyone in cryptocurrency needs to know

Today I've got a little refresher course geared a bit more towards crypto beginners. If you're a crypto expert, it still might be worth watching. Tried to pack a lot of jokes into this one.


Doug, thx for being on steem. Lwt us know some time what you like about it and what you think its weaknesses are.

Also would love to know what would be needed for you to invest i to the ecosystem and buy steem and power it up.

Just a thought about the government doing 'irrational stuff'...

Banning online poker was perfectly rational for them (or at least it could have been.. if somebody lobbied them to do it, then there isn't much downside and they pocket the money).

I don't really see it as governments behave irrationally.. it's just that they don't act in your and my best interest. (They seem perfectly rational when we remember that they're acting in their own interests.)

And I don't think banning Bitcoin does much good for them.

For all we know government interests are already involved in mining and contributing to the weird issues there, or trying to manipulate it in some other way.

A hard nose "ban" can easily backfire and just draw attention to it, and/or weaken the perception of that government by its citizens, especially if cryptocurrency proves to be a benefit to all the other countries where it's legal.

In general I think they'll try to work with it to hang on to some pieces of control however they can rather than put their energy into stopping it.

Or Cliffs: I don't think it's some kind of random thing where MAYBE they'll just do X.. generally they'll do whatever is rationally correct for them

Definitely entertaining.

HAHA... Doug, you somehow can make a video about crypto funnier then most comedians best material. Keep up the good work!

PS, do a crypto happy hour with @cryptobobby damnit...

looks like Connor McGregor without beard.

Please Doug, explain what the hell this"public key" really represents in the real life everyday world!

You should protect your public key and tell everyone your private key, isn't it obvious? ;)

Great post man! really helpful for the newbies! Keep up the amazing work!

and Stupid people reprsenting the crypto comunity.

Love these videos. So funny yet informative. Love the humor!

Thanks for the new video Doug. I discovered your videos on YouTube a couple of months ago and have been watching religiously since I found you.

I have dabbled in crypto since 2016 but have only recently have had the extra capital to start investing properly. Your videos have been a great help to me. Thank you!

What's up Doug? @cryptorep here. ;) You are doing a good job. Keep it up. Movie about Bitcoooooneeeect was very funny.
Btw. I had the opportunity to play a few hands with you one day on NL HU 0.25/0.5. It had to be a long time ago... :)

Doug, why do you think increasing the blocksize is not a sustainable solution?

There have been research that up to 1GB blocks can be run on relatively inexpensive computers.

Data storage is getting less and less expensive over time.

There is research coming out for 1TB blocks.

How lovely photo

"I'm not really sure what a public key is" why is it so funny every time!
You may want to add "Don't even listen to what I have to say"

The 11th thing is hodl.

Such an informative post. Thank you for the information because I've only been into cryptos this past year so I'm still learning every day.

I just finished a post that discusses my journey to adopting a vegan lifestyle. It might interest you, check it out if you get the opportunity. Thanks!!
