For those not following the bitcoin story, I have been talking about it for quite a while. Why BitCoin is doomed. The quantity problem. Bitcoin doesn’t accomodate banking. Bitcoin predictions. What Bitcoin really is. Bitcoin’s fundamental false representation. Bitcoinica lawsuit.
Forgive me. But ahem. John Matonis at Forbes is on the board of the BitCoin foundation. I suppose I can be faulted for not knowing earlier. But I shall forgive myself. Dear lord.
I am an e-Money researcher and crypto economist focused on expanding the circulation of nonpolitical digital currencies. My career has included senior influential posts at Sumitomo Bank, VISA, VeriSign, and Hushmail. Currently, I serve on the Board of Directors for the Bitcoin Foundation. I am also Editor of The Monetary Futureeconomics blog and board advisor to startups in bitcoin, gaming, mobile, and prepaid.
E-money researcher? Senior influential posts? In marketing maybe. His columns are oblivious self-satire. Sorry, John, but this is embarrassing.
Oi vey with a ham sandwich.
I am wondering if I have found the key propagandist for BitCoin. I think I have.
And talk about conflict of interest. This guy is writing for Forbes about what he is on the board of?
Yeah. Journalism at its finest. But about par for the course from Forbes Magazine.
