Investing in Cryptocurrency

A little disappointed in the shortsightedness of the recent podcast on crypto. Randy's nutshell list of limitations and risk flat out ignores the human principles and philosophy driving Bitcoin, as if lack of regulation, government oversight and sovereign bans define it, and as if high volitility is a negative. Volitility = life. I also did not understand why he thinks BTC is limited by slow transactions and hefty fees - unless he is talking about other cryptos. It takes longer to transact a buy through a bank than the blockchain! However, good try. Pretty typical perspective from a traditional financial services company.
