Some argue that the ecosystem is teeming with criminals, others call Bitcoin Tulip mania of the 21st century.

Writes Ethereumworldnews, 99Bitcoins not even bothered to collect all the articles and publications that Bitcoin «buried» 337 times. Moreover, the list includes only well-known publishers and resources.

However, now that Bitcoin is indeed in danger, comes to the aid of Time magazine. In column Time Ideas article appeared Director of strategy at the Human Rights Foundation Alex Gladstein.

For example, in Venezuela, the BTC will help to avoid the extortionate fee of 56% from services, remittances. The money will go instantly, and wait for days and even weeks do not have to.

As noted by Gladstein, Bitcoin is just the tip of the iceberg in the fight against authoritarianism, since there are also a lot of anonymous cryptocurrencies like . You can use them along with other ways to bypass the centralized systems.

If we dedicate more time and resources creating comfortable wallets, exchanges and best educational materials about Bitcoin, it will really help the 4 billion people who do not trust their government or do not have access to the banking system.
