Fikrlar

  • LOL so many things he got wrong in this, but HODL was funny.... HODL isnt a misspelling, it means Hold On (for) Dear Life. John.... like many of your very ignorant episodes... this didnt age well: BTC $60k and crypto market $2T+ As always, ignorant people who have too little brain power fall behind innovation, and get left holding bags of inflated fiat. Who else is here in 2021??? :D

  • I'm be honest that bitconnect guy sounds like Carlos Mencía

  • If you bought into bitcoin when this video was released you'd probably be able to retire right now.

  • $Doge TO THE MOON

  • When doge coin just hit 50 cents 🥵

  • I'm 23 and I bet I own more coins than John Oliver lmao

  • my happy place is John Oliver following a particularly revelatory clip with a devastating “Cool.”

  • Who’s gonna tell John about Dogecoin?

  • I count myself to be successful in forex trading with the help of my broker mrs martina rodriguez her strategies are top notch

    • what i enjoy most while trading with Mrs Martin rodriguez, is her consistency in making huge profits every weekend

    • & considering the huge profits generated by mrs Martina rodriguez 20 percent commission seems very fair

    • @Clayton Erick the commission charged by Mrs martina rodriguez is fair compared to the effort she puts in making huge profits

    • @Mariaa Parmescha @investwithmartina

    • @Mariaa Parmescha You can contact her on teIegram via

  • 3 years later, dogecoin has one of the top values of crypto. Brilliant lol

  • Pause @ 17:03. 😂 😂 😂 😂 I'd be acting that way too if I could steal someone's money that openly and get away with it...

  • Bitcoin and every other crypto currency will collapse sooner or later. The dollar is in trouble too. The banks have zero fears about crypto as they control the world’s economies. It’s rigged and the house always wins.

  • Mining bitcoin ior cryptocurrencies require a powerful pc or mining machine, that needs to run 24/7 .And it uses up a lot of power, you need to keep these things supercool. Using a pc isnt recommended because of spyware than can exist with the trading software. Usually the ones making money have set up as a group with multiple high spec machines running their own power supply. The set up cost for a single person for considerable returns would be astronomical .It requires a lot of power and you will wear out your pc real quick running it 24 hrs a day.

  • Nailed it buddy... By the beginning of this week trade session, moving between losses and gains on it's neutral weekly outlook which makes it a tough decision for investors to decide how best to utilize the current market; as for me it can't be more obvious that trading Btc/Crypto currency is way more lucrative than just hodling and waiting for the price of bitcoin to skyrocket. I didn't think it was possible to make constant win from trading till i came across Mrs Harlyn Walter's program for investors/newbie who lack understanding on how trading Btc/Crypto works, to help them recover loss from the crash and also stack up more bitcoin/crypto. Since late last year till date i have made over 19 Btc from 2.6 Btc with Mrs Harlyn Walter's help.

  • Well, if you didn't get into it when this show aired, you're punching yourself now!

  • Dogecoin's market cap is some $39 billion right now. Bitcoin is up to $1.15 trillion. What a time to be alive.

  • Those who deeply understand how it works will know crypto is nothing more than just a gambling with a slot machine and chance of winning is easily manipulated by the operator via "marketing". Any bubble will pop. Those who are lucky will be able to sell their shares before its going down. Thats not including the risk of global cyber blackout and ledger hacking risk. Wholly trusting the operator is a big risk when there is no guarantee for compensation.

  • Damn go Dan.

  • Bitcoin is a "Red Flag" to me... Mainly because so many "Starngers" are trying to get me to invest in it

  • It’s now up to $60,000. How most of us missed out :(

    • In 5 years, $60K will look cheap. Many see Bitcoin at $500K to $1M.

  • Google Glass was just a few years too early. By now it would probably smash.

  • Great content. Everyone needs more than there basic salary to be financially secured. The best thing to do with your money is to invest. Money left in savings always end up used with no returns. I started investing in bitcoin mid November 2019 with the help of a well-known professional, Mrs Lisa and the profits almost entirely funded my recent duplex.

    • I'm not here to converse but to share my testimony just for what I confirmed she's trustworthy and best option ever seen.... Thanks expert Mrs Lisa 💓

    • @Johnson William So I will advise you to try Mrs Lisa she is 100% legit

    • I saw her ports but I ignored I thought it was a fake platform, with the conversation am convinced she legit

    • Mrs Lisa of financial education has really made name for herself

    • With the testimonies on how forex have helped during the pendemic going into forex will be great move.l believe her strategies will favored me as well as it favored others

  • "A digital token that has no purpose." Scammers will always win with people who fall for gonna get rich quick schemes.

  • He's certainly right about why it's going up. Not because it has any value but because people ate falling for the hype. The price is being manipulated in so many ways but of course it will be the little guy who's "invested" all his cash and probably borrowed some too who will be left with nothing when the bubble bursts.

  • Bitcoin's white paper even stated it was to be taken over by a better crypto. Buy Etherium

  • Its 2021. Should probably private this video...

  • Oh yo so nft's....

  • Hodlgang sounds like a word in old Norse

  • Only, as they say, in America.

  • I promise you that pump and dump was just a hype generator for the real pump and dump.

  • I am starting a crypto called tulipcoin....

  • Did this age well?...because I think it aged WELL 🚀

    • Like a fine wine. Look up the Daily show piece on memecoins like doge. $100 on doge then = over 100k now

  • 3/12/18: "Discussions of any new technology tend to age poorly" 3/12/21: Bitcoin hits $50,000

  • Maybe Dan was just trying to look out for you John but your arrogance means you got left off the boat. I am glad that this video resurfaced on my feed today. It was a good laugh. EOS did just under 5b in transactions in the last 24 hours and Doge is over 30 cents. Central banks are looking for a new monetary policy and it's digital. This entire episode is now a meme.

  • Crypto currencies are just another Ponzi scheme. So many people wanting a quick buck who are easily scammed. Why aren't there investigations being on done these con artists. Those who get rich on these scams are criminals and need to be prosecuted.

  • One of JO's funniest

  • This video aged worse than the Google glasses he mocks in the opening segment. 😂🤣

  • 13:57 Dogecoin went from 2 billion to 35 billion lol. meme that

  • Just cleaned up on doge

  • Whats interesting is if you did the opposite of what this show told you and threw everything you had into crypto (btc, ada and eth) you would be up like 5000% right now.

  • "Dan" is rich now

  • So who's Very laughing Much now.

  • so miskeen smh

  • I wish I could have bought BTC during this episode... :( :(

  • What did I learn today? That the Gamestop Stocks thing was a massive Pump and Dump Scheme.

  • Gary Amy thanks very much

  • Hello I'm from South Africa thank you so much by showing me about Mrs Jane

  • These comment about Miss Anna are hilarious!!

  • who is laughing now?

  • Have we passed Idiocracy yet?

  • Bitcoin value as of 7:00AM April 15, 2021: $63,095 USD

  • The rich remain rich by spending less but investing more while the poor remain poor by spending like the rich yet know investment.

    • + 1. 6 . 0 .1. 9 . 8 . 7. 2 . 1. 2 . 6 W*H*A*T*S*A*P*P

    • I've tried her out once already with £1,500 and won £32,678 in just 5days Awesome

    • I really love Mrs Laura strategy,it has really made me a lot of profits for me.

    • It's not all about watching videos I did so I was ignorant doing so,I decided to try Expert Mrs Laura and ever since she has made alot of profits for me may God bless her abundantly

    • Doubted this before giving it a try,and don't regret trading with Mrs Laura she's the best broker so far

  • Should have listened to my boy Dan

  • This episode aged almost as well as his episode of the ease of systemic electron fraud due to highly unregulated machines and lack of public transparency in counting processes.

  • Hi everyone I'm new to bitcoin trade and I have watched a lot of videos along side tried some new strategies on my own but all to no avail. Can someone please recommend a trust worthy expert that can trade on my behalf and generate profit for me please

    • L M A O at this comment thread

    • @Maria Koko You don't have to be surprised. Mrs Linda's trading services is good and everyone loves her qualifications and genuine services, i guess that's why she is popular

    • Wow am so surprise you all know that lady, God has used Mrs Linda to change the stories of so many people and I'm glad I met her too

    • Linda Worley: + 1. 6 . 0 .1. 9 . 8 . 7. 2 . 1. 2 . 6 W*H*A*T*S*A*P*P

    • @Janelle Jane She is an expert trader. And her trading services is reliable and transparent and apart from myself, I have never seen any of her customers complaining about loosing their money, and I have made a very huge profit under her management.

  • Get me some beef Gurwich

  • that guy everyone thought was crazy in the park, wearing the bitcoin costume is probably loaded.

  • The funniest part of this video is how many times he mentions the wildly speculative nature of the market in 2018. Just wait until 2020 lmao.

  • How does he not cover the huge power requirements? So much energy is being wasted on these currencies which have questionable benefits.

  • Hi LWT team, I would sutto revisit this topic at some time as the cripto currency process takes a lot of energy and is impacting already climate change. Statistics points that to run the algorithm behind it consumesore energy than many countries. Actually if you gather all the estimated criptocurrency energy consumption it would be the 18th country in energy consumption in the world. Mr. Oliver has the reach to bring awareness and enlighten people on the subject.

  • When this story came out what was bitcoin at? can you do an update on this story?

  • well this didnt age well.... i should not throw everything i own in crypto. I sure wish i had in 2018!!!!

  • Crypto investment holds several benefits and detriments so it's advisable for investors to be cautious with decisions. You should understand the basis of crypto currency investments and do research to acquire profitable trading results, that's why I let expertise Ms Gabriella West handle my trading account.

  • Dan was right.. you know.

  • Cardi B is really smart actually

  • I know this is kind of old, but it's extremely, extremely wrong. The "fundamental" reason that bitcoin has value is because people think they can get some other sucker to pay them more for it, 100 percent like a ponzi scheme. The "fundamental" reason that a real currency has value is because a government has the capability of putting you in prison if you don't pay your taxes in that currency.

  • 14:58 in case it actually needs to be said ... never join a crypto pump-and-dump group. They're scamming you. It's just a few people buying massively into a coin, which drives the price up, then they tell you and a bunch of others to buy, which drives the price up more, then they sell before telling you to sell (because they want to sell high and don't give a shit about you obviously). Then the price crashes and you're shit out of luck. Unfortunately some people keep getting scammed by this over and over again because they're convinced they're just not selling fast enough, and will be faster next time, and don't realize that they are being set up from the get-go.

  • Dan is rich now

  • This aged like milk❤️

  • Bitcoin is still one of the dumbest investments you could make.

  • Block Chainiver was right on the money about Dogecoin. Currently standing at $0.11

  • Glad he opened with "Videos about technology don't age well" 😂

  • This is all so white.

  • Who has more money now? Dan or John?

  • And to think Dogecoin is worth more than a dime now.

    • @Allison Hart My cost average is 2 cents, I'm sorry to hear you missed out on that tho

    • i was gonna buy at 2 cents and didn't 😭 then again let's be real, we all think to ourselves "i'd have 5x my money" but that assumes we would have held onto it and not sold. that's why i try not to beat myself up too much, and why people shouldn't beat themselves up thinking "i should have bought Bitcoin back in 2013" or whatever. chances are, they would have sold a long time ago if they bought it back in 2013. and then they'd still be kicking themselves. human brains don't really allow us to be that patient, especially when something is so volatile and the future is so uncertain. saying "i wish i had bought Bitcoin back in 2013" is a statement that makes so many assumptions that it's useless for one to beat oneself up in such a way.

  • I’m from the future and you should definitely have invested everything in Bitcoin.

  • #CraefulGang

  • Dogecoin is a Bitcoin fork as old as your grandmother.

  • EOS is now @$7.06B

  • wax is going strong

  • Dan must be a billionaire by now

  • $63k

  • I'd like to see another take on bitcoin now that its at 60k after 3 years :)

  • Video uploaded on *March 12, 2018* , bitcoin fell below $3,300 on Dec, 7, 2018. Current bitcoin price: $62,650. It was at _just_ 3,300 only three years ago? :( Fuck you responsibility. You're not my real parents!

  • One of my buddies was selling dope and buying a motherfucking truck load of bit coin at $28.00 ea then caught a murder beef and doing 17 years as his bitcoin making him a goddamn millionaire in the process

  • Hah. EOS is now worth 70 bn

  • Where is Dan now??

  • Gamestop?

  • I bet DAN is REALLY INSUFFERABLE AROUND THE OFFICE WITH the CURRENT VALUE OF BITCOIN!!! 2021!!!!

  • Dan must be a millionaire or even a billionaire by now

  • Wrong about BTC, wrong about DOGE, wrong about EOS... Dan should do an update on his show. I’ve never seen John be so wrong before. I love Johns show, but damn 2018 was an accumulation time of a life time. He missed this.

  • I think the pandemic has taught people a big lesson, having one stream of income is not really a good idea cause your job doesn't secure your financial needs. The pandemic has really set out business-minded people from the rest that is why I'm so lucky to be among the investors trading with Mrs. Patricia Westbrook as her student it's been success and happiness since the beginning of my trades

    • Bitcoin is the future, Investing in it now will be the wisest thing to do especially with the current price of 1 BTC now $64,449,04

    • When I first started online business, I had so many people trying to discourage me. The truth is I have seen folks who started with just $1500 and now have made over $67,000 in the space of just 2 months, thanks to Mrs. Patricia Westbrook

    • Speaking of Bitcoin trading, it's the best business in the world right now. I know a couple of friends who make a whole lot of money trading the financial market

    • yeah thats true,You can only appreciate a person who tries to teach everyone how to invest and make profit on multiple ways.

    • As a Bitcoin trader, it’s almost inevitable that you’re going to experience some ups and downs along the way.Alertness and decisiveness are both fundamental ingredients in the recipe for a successful Bitcoin trader.

  • When you invest, you're buying a day you don't have to work.

    • Being rich is a mind, crypto currency is the commodity that made so many people from zero to hero, imvest today and don't do not much tomorrow

    • Unless it’s a bad investment, then you’re paying to lose.

    • it's never too late to start trading thanks for the info

    • I have been able to gather enough funds to buy Bitcoin I can't wait to finally kick off

    • Making money is easier through investment, don't save your money, buy assets and invest

  • Here's an even easier explanation. Imagine buying something you don't even begin to comprehend and it makes you filthy rich as long as you don't do anything. That's Bitcoin.

  • lol

  • I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVEEEEEEE BIT CONNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECT!

  • Oops

  • Sounds like a pyramid scheme to me. If you can’t hold it in your hand, is it real ?

  • Crypto currency has value because people agree it does, just like any other currency...except governments (USA and its states) except their own currency (USD) to pay tax bills but don’t generally accept speculative products (Bitcoin and lesser cryptos) as barter. So in that sense, it’s not a useful currency and would be like working a job that pays in pesos, euros, yen, yuan, or dong depending on the day and then having to exchange those currencies for dollars to pay all your bills.
