23 Thoughts to “‘Big Short’ Investor Steve Eisman On Bitcoin And Crypto | CNBC”

  1. Rich Guys: Crypto is a bubble, terrible, trading turds, no value
    Interviewers: Would you short BTC?
    Rich Guys: Oh…now see…I'm not an expert on cryptocurrency…

  2. Im surprised about this guy.. i thought he was pessimistic about regular mkts, hes big on shorting banks

  3. How can you say Blockchain is going to work but crypto ain't ? It like saying engines will work but cars ain't

  4. So Blockchain is good but Bitcoin is not good :). This days we have big coordinated propaganda against Bitcoin. Buffet, Gates, Jack Ma, Eisman … all poor people :). Everything went when bitcoin almost been 10K. What coincidence! 🙂

  5. Scroll to the end of the video if you want to see the sum of it all. He says I have no idea how to value it.

  6. Why can’t people just admit they don’t know what crypto is? Why do they feel the need to bash it, and then backpedal? Just say you don’t fully understand it yet and nobody will judge. But if you come out, guns blazing, without anything to back you up, then you deserve criticism.

  7. be aware! he is an agent of the system!!! 🙂

  8. It's good for money laundering? Dude the US dollar is probably the most used currency for criminal activity and corruption!

  9. The miners support the block chain by confirming ALL the transactions on said block chain. If miners cannot breakeven or make a small profit then they turn their machines off and wait till the markets turn up again. Miners also create the coin that people trade on the block chain. So basically, less miners mining means less transaction confirmations and longer waits to move your coin around. Understand the tech before you trade like your on NASDAQ, because this is not at all like NASDAQ.

  10. But how many of you find transactions with paypal or credit or debit or cash or check so difficult that you actively will want something better enough to switch? I know some people have uses, but you have to admit mainstream consumers have no current issues in their transactions. Currency has to be widely adopted to have transaction utility.

  11. “I know nothing about crypto but I don’t like it”… classic.

  12. This guy clearly knows nothing about Crypto – why again – are people like this on the show rather than people who are actually in the industry and know about the sector!!

  13. who is that ignorant Asian girl, saying the whole continent of Africa is not it

  14. He words it in a way that when it takes off he'll have an out,
    Bold to call it inefficient, Too soft to short it.

  15. He says he doesnt know much about crypto, then doesnt see what the utility is pls this was utter waste of time and he should do his research.

  16. McAfee's said the chart for Bitcoin will surely reach 1million USD before 2030. If said thing is to happen, like his past predictions happened, IT will be very very unwise for you not to know how to Increase your Btc instead of Just Hodling. I lost 5Btc to Bitconnect in January and i was left with 8Btc, I started looking for ways to make more money while asleep,One day on Altcoin Buzz channel, someone Recommended us to reach out to a man named Robert Wells who has made a great impact in teaching young crypto investors an Almighty Strategy to trade their Bitcoins, Its just 5months since I reached out to Him, I can Proudly boast of increasing my Portfolio from 8Btc to 43Btc . Y'all can reach out to him through His TELEGRAM +1(631)620-6929*, *HANGOUTS and Skype/Mail * *(Robertwells652@gmail.com)

  17. He seems out of touch as cash is king for money laundering!!!!

  18. the bitcoin cult just can't hear any negative words. Any real investor wants to hear the contra view to make sure they are right, bitcoin disciples don't do that, that's why you should be skeptical.

  19. How about you do some research before you start talking BS…what about decentralization… no middle man …i don't have to deal with the banks and send money instantly across the globe …all you have to do is come up with money laundering…banks have been laundering money since their inception …the real tech here is decentralization, instant payments and being my own bank.

  20. Crypto, cash, whatever…either one you still gotta earn it
