Hi Vik,

Unfortunately I don't believe anything can save our world in this
situation, but i do believe in improvements. Homo sapiens almost destroyed
half of the population of the mammals on the planet at the time of
Agricultural Revolution, before even humans invented iron tools, wheels and
writing. So an 8yrs old Bitcoin cannot possibly be the savior.

Money laundry is the first question that comes to mind when speaking about
Bitcoin, specially after the famous "SilkRoad" and "Charlie Shrem"
situation. But history shows the biggest money laundry cases happened
through the big banks of the world, such as: Bank of New York, HSBC and
Charter House Bank in Kenya. Internet, computers, phones and all kind of
technologies can be used to commit a crime, but we cannot stop using them
just because they're helping criminals too.;)

There are different reasons I think Bitcoin is a more accessible option,
Which i mentioned some in my first email. But beside the accessibility
barriers that can be solved by Bitcoin, I think the peer to peer
transaction experience and without the "Big Brother" controlling every
aspects of your life, it promotes the freedom of speech, religion and race.
Bitcoin might fail and in ten years we all might forget its name, or also
it may take 20yrs and help to build a more inclusive world.
