Interested in stocks? [Robinhood] [https://robinhood.com/referral/dineshp/] lets you trade for free

Ditching the traditional fee structure used by the vast majority of brokerages, [Robinhood] [https://robinhood.com/referral/dineshp/] for the iPhone lets investors purchase and sell stocks without having to pay a fee on each trade. This has created a new way for smaller investors with limited funds purchase stock quantities as small as one share without spending at least $8 on a trading fee.

The creators of the application make money on the interest collected on funds deposited for trading as well as interest when a user buys in margin. However, users aren’t required to maintain a minimum balance and can easily deposit earnings in their bank account at any time.

  1. Cool! Sure, there is a ton of crap in crypto. However, how can we share each others unused data? How can you have free Internet without using an ISP? How do you make a self driving car? What makes Sophia the robot tick? How do you decentralize the power of big banks and monopolies? Crypto! That’s how. That’s what makes it valuable.

  2. Perfect example of John Oliver being a sellout/corporate puppet. Knows almost nothing about cryptocurrencies and blockchain yet rips it apart. It shouldn’t be a surprise however that when you work for an industry that is threatened by a new technology, that you would sacrifice open mindedness and hope towards something that could bring unprecedented equality and efficiency to the world.

  3. And if you think about it, most of the mining nodes visibly available on shodan.io have default username and passwords because most entrylevel folk dont know basic network security. That’s what security model youre justifying to replace your bank infrastructure. The idea of a few banks being insecure now requires that we unleash a world of insecure systems. Try uetoken too!

  4. There are number of ethical voices in the cryptocurrency community. We advocate caution and having access to accurate data to make smart decisions. *Do not* invest anything you are not willing to lose.

    John Oliver and his team should have consulted some of the more reasonable voices in the community.

  5. John, I have definitely fallen out of favor of your take on recent events, but fuck me sideways if you don’t always dress like a stud

  6. Ha, 9 days after this show aired I watched it and googled ‘Brock Pierce scandal’, and 9 out of 10 search results was about John Oliver getting Pierce sacked from EOS 😀

  7. … That’s not really a happy face on a reporter that Jon’s describing at 8:33… that looks kinda more like a “I’m horrified, but awkwardly fascinated” grimace.

  8. BITCOIN’S price could drop to a shocking low of $2,800 per token in a “precipitous drop” as the cryptocurrency’s closing price over the last 50 days is close to its 200-day moving average which has “spooked” some analysts, it has been warned.
    Try to sell ur ripple now cause it gonna crash on 03/24/2018 and it will be big and go down to below .30748 per coin

  9. I want fucking real money that is made out of gold or silver. Like it used to be in the very old days……………….

  10. if I had a time machine I’d go back and buy a bitcoin when it first started. But once something blows up, it’s already too late to get in

  11. Guys i joined so called pump and dump group i found on Dark Web but one that is on top of pyramide. With fake satellite groups working to blindly pump for us. We get 3 pumps per month manage to get few thousands per month if you respect group rules which i do. Skype name: Crypto Pump Premium

  12. I have bitcoin. I sent my sister $5 in bitcoin and was charged $20 in fees. Coinbase never responded to why this happened.
    If that shit is gonna happen, I can’t get behind bitcoin.
    Otherwise, I’ve had great experience with it.

  13. “Decentralization has advantages, from speed to security.”

    This is completely wrong. The only advantage is security from a corrupted central party. Centralized systems can be much, much faster – the key thing is that you have to trust them.

    It’s great to see John Oliver talking about this topic, but it’s unfortunate that these two keep being conflated.

  14. It’s very sad that Americans can only be taught something while simultaneously being entertained. But it’s very effective

  15. This was so on point and full of very useful information about bitcoin and cryptocurrency. I (lmao) the entire time watching the video. The funny thing is there is a message that needs to be heard behind all the jokes .. I hope you can hear it

  16. My currency would be called orgasms. Pay with sex or pay with fake digital currency. Either way its going to be a few orgasms.

  17. Así que aquí fueron a parar algunos del equipo de college humor, me refiero al bueno y muy shilo, interesante 😮 🤔

  18. Understand about criptomoedas and lucre mining at the top or bottom of bitcoin at a multinational company that offers the profitability of cloud mining in conjunction with a sustainable affiliate program. IT’S POSSIBLE!!!

  19. I have made a lot of money within 3 months of trading cryptocurrency, i wont be where i am today if not for this
    trader ollie kutcher, who introduced me to his trading system which has changed my life. for this reason
    i have to share my testimony so others can benefit as well. You should contact him via his email olliekutcher@gmail.com.
    your life will be transformed, trust me.

  20. Bitcoin don’t worth the risk. The money need to be regulated. U could use bitcoin to escape from taxes but also give money to ISIS.

  21. Goodday Friends,if you are a newbies or you are already in this bitcoin market, you can buy bitcoin from me at 8.000 dollars as against 10.616 dollars. Note you are not to pay me until you have confirmed my transfer then you can pay me. If interested email me via; with the amount you need and you brunosamel2346@gmail.com

  22. Here’s the thing; John saying that “you’re not investing, you’re gambling” isn’t technically correct.

    There are very good investors who understand this market quite well and I know I’ve heard someone say that if you are in the world of asset management, you would be stupid not to have someone managing a crypto position.

    Do I think it’s going to be the future and Bitcoin will be the new global currency? No, of course not.
    Do I think it’s possible it will be though? Yes, it’s possible.
    Is its value going to go to zero? No, I’m sure it won’t.

    The truth is, in the future, Bitcoin and many other popular cryptocurrencies WILL have value. It’s a certainty just based on its properties. Personally, I plan on investing in Bitcoin but I have a limit in mind. And if you’re in the same boat, just remember, don’t invest what you aren’t prepared to lose because nothing is a sure thing.

  24. So happy this is on the internet! Crypto Is finally getting some mainstream attention! We like John Oliver using Crypto terms! Makes us feel more justified. Even if we are the guy in the office who made a YouTube channel about it….

  25. investing and trading on the new coins which has potential value to rise in no time in the future increases your chances of earning big gains and become rich with bitcoin, you have to understand something about bitcoin and not only believing in some of this videos that led you loosing your money at end. I invest my coins on a platform that increases my gains daily as the coin rise in crypto market. The platform uses a currency prediction mining tool to bypass all risk and also, the software has the ability to switch to next the coin if the value of the particular coin you invested/traded on goes low. Ethereum, Hextracoin, Siacoin, dashcoin and Dogecoin are currently high in value on the platform I invested my coins and has given me $10,000 gains/profit and have made my first withdrawal from the 2k i invested in two weeks. I advise you take advantage of these new coins and earn good profits on the rise. I can guide you to make good gains with my little experience from crypto market or better still, contact (BITCOIN-FUND-MANAGER). The man with great knowledge of bitcoin and Binary Option trading, he has made me realize good gains/profit from the amazing platform he recommend to me. Truly, I benefited a lot from this platform he recommended with good strategies he uses in trading these coins. Here’s his contact info (bitcoinfundmanager00@gmail.com) if you truly want to invest or trade on bitcoin.

  26. EmojiBlockchainDotCom is an excellent game. 99% players lose but you could be become a millionaire. Just don’t HODL.

  27. DeepOnion probably comes from Deep Web and the Onion network (which is the World Wide Web for Deep Web… or something like that), so it’s not that ridiculous once you can guess where the name comes from. But I’m #craefulgang myself.

  28. If anyone is interested to learn in a group with live interaction feel free to check our place out, its Free and a friendly environment

  29. Everybody bashing bitcoin, but don’t realize our currency is fiat and based on literally nothing. It’s value is whatever the Fed says it is. Which is terrifying.

  30. Bitcoin will be controlled by government later, Trump already added Crypto currency to 2018 taxes, that is only the start once USA sees how much taxes its going to collect with bitcoins, bye bye no middle man

  31. block chain is not safe because of other security issues with transactions. Its been hacked and will be hacked again. Then there is pumping and dumping. That breakdown video is literally the reason why bitcoin resurfaced on the news again. That’s why it could turn nearly worthless in a short time.

  32. Google glass did not fail because it was not a good idea or not popular, it failed because and only because it was prohibitively expensive.

  33. Yeah its always great ti hear about cryptoworld from such a big show. Try thi guide if you want to know more about it…

  34. I have to admit I do love this show, considering with cryptocurrencies you can steal it just like US currency if you leave it in the wild, but it can be tracked which is one main reason why it’s odd that governments don’t like it… It’s not going away you can’t stop it, you can’t steal it if you store it right. Like it or not it is here today.

  35. John and his network made a LOT of money from the corporate banksters–who own the corporate media he works for–for this video, truly. Thanks for nothing, John…except pumping and dumping on a way for the 99% to overcome the hegemony of your employers.

  36. Great video, but I’m a little disappointed John didn’t answer to the #1 most common question I hear from old folks who don’t know anything about cryptocurrency: “How is a bitcoin made?” (I’m no expert, but I usually tell them something about complex computations that people use their home computers to solve, and how the cost of electricity to run your average computer to solve the computations outpaces the amount of crypto you can mine… and how this has lead to people making “crypto mining machines” that costs tons of money to make, which has driven the computer graphics card market to insane prices, and now PC building hobbyists hate crypto miners because a $500 graphics card now costs $1300…)

  37. About the information on the video at 15:20 it’s durable by companies like Melaluca and other mlm cancers check this video from a bitcoin YouTube er:

  38. Love what they did here.enogh with stealing people money on shitty projects and wortless coins .enogh with icos scams

  39. This year a strong growth will be given by Nem, EOS and Telcoin! It is possible to make good X-es on them)

  40. [HELP] Survey for Bitcoin’s users:

    I’m a student in economics and I’m working on Bitcoin for my master’s thesis. If you use or possess bitcoins, don’t hesitate to answer that survey it will help me a lot !! 😉

  41. Nice video. Like flowers, currencies may bud and bloom but they all stem from their golden roots. All currencies fade and fall away with time. The central bank of central banks (BIS) knows this truth all too well (simply google ‘BIS money flower’ to see this illustrated). No monetary proxy endures like physical precious metal bullion does. This is precisely why central banks and their government partners buy and hoard about 20% of the physical gold mined throughout history.

  42. Thanks. i like the way he tells people to steer clear of televangelists and crypto-currencies which are both not good ways of investing your money most all the time.

  43. Surprisingly, I used to be an investor on Wall Street. And I’ve never seen anything like this in my 10 year tenure at the company. TheBitCoinCode5.blogspot.com My colleagues all thought I was crazy when I quit the firm to invest with the Bitcoin Code software full-time. $84,594 in profits later, all of my colleagues are now BEGGING me to let them in.

  44. The mother of all coins is out in the market. HOLY CRAP! It’s superior to all other coins, in technology, business, security and accessibility. It swept up a storm in the pre-sale and is now having the largest ICO forum in the history of cryptocurrency. Check out the events page and white paper. You DO NOT want to miss this.

  45. “The craziest thing to happen in Fort Myers that isn’t illegal or disguising , we’re southern Florida and we wished we were southern Cali.”

  46. DeepOnion is clever,, referring to the “.onion” extension at the end of darknet URL’s. The term Onion, referring to the layers of encryption involved in darknet, or *Deepnet, domains.

  47. Turn a chicken mcnugget back into a chicken… Simple.. you’d simply reassemble the amino acids back into the form the chicken had when it was a chicken.. not like it’s hard.. ibm made a movie with atoms…

  48. If you really think about it, the fact that stock prices are reacting to simple name changes (without any added value) is very scary. That means that there’s a systemic problem in the U.S’ stock market for it to be highly sensitive to average consumer perception (I doubt this rise is coming from any professional investors because they’d know better). This sort of volatility (which people perceive as good when stock prices rise) poses a lot of risk on the financial industry as a whole. This effectively means that the stock market doesn’t derive its value from meaningful things but rather superficial (highly volatile) factors. Now it should be noted that it has long been understood that consumer/investor perception play a part in the stock market’s value but it shouldn’t have such a strong effect.

  49. I have been saved from poverty ..all thanks to the best PayPal/bitcoin hacker he helped me with the sum of $8650 within 10 minutes of our encounter you can surely be the next lucky person …just message him on hangouts on superhacker9090@gmail.com and be the next happy person for the rest of your life ……don’t forget you can also contact him on WhatsApp on +2348134519702

  50. Oh great, just what we need. Another public figure publicly denouncing crypto while secretly buying all they can.
