Snippet:

…Bitcoins, a relatively new form of electronic money are also often hawked as the latest and greatest solution to keeping your money safe. Except EVERYBODY KNOWS about Mt. Gox by now. From Wiki:

Mt. Gox was a Bitcoin exchange based in Tokyo, Japan. It was launched in July 2010, and by 2013 was handling 70% of all Bitcoin transactions.[1] In February 2014, the Mt. Gox company suspended trading, closed its website and exchange service, and filed for a form of bankruptcy protection from creditors called minji saisei, or civil rehabilitation, to allow courts to seek a buyer.[2][3] In April 2014, the company began liquidation proceedings.[4] It announced that around 850,000 bitcoins belonging to customers and the company were missing and likely stolen, an amount valued at more than $450 million at the time.[5][6] Although 200,000 bitcoins have since been "found", the reason(s) for the disappearance—theft, fraud, mismanagement, or a combination of these—are unclear as of March 2014.[7]

You think Fraud, Mismanagement and Hacking will STOP if money goes cashless? OF COURSE NOT, IT WILL GET WORSE! There is no computer system ever that is foolproof and incapable of being hacked, and of course the rewards for hacking such a system or “mismanaging” it gets bigger all the time, so the Best & the Brightest spend all their time figuring out how to do that…

For the rest, LISTEN TO THE RANT!!!

    Bang on, RE.  Tx as always for my daily cuppa doomer humour!

  • tagio says:

    Another BIG problem with banning cash.  How is the US Military going to pay off the locals to keep the peace in Iraq and other places in the MidEast, Ukraine or elsewhere in the world if they can't ship BILLIONS in pallets of cash to hand out?  Do you think that offering to open a bank account at JP Morgan Chase for the local warlords with free online banking is going to fly?  Oooops, lolz, there goes US foreign policy!   Because "winning hearts and minds" = doling out beaucoup FRNs, bearer instruments, good anywhere. 

    See, e.g., "How the US sent $12bn in cash to Iraq and watched it vanish," .http://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/feb/08/usa.iraq1

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
