Former Facebook Exec Chamath Palihapitiya On Social Media, Bitcoin, And Elon Musk (Full) | CNBC

Ummæli

  • “but you have money to play around with” All money you invest should be money to play around with.

  • This video has aged well. Chamath pretty much on point. Who I trust is intuitive. I listen to visionary realists grounded in reality. My trust is only strengthened by watching old videos such as this one on my favourite minds. This is the kind of person I will take seriously nowadays. Same with Michael Saylor, Cathie Wood etc. Tech is the future, wake up and smell the machines. Just listen to Michael Saylor’s take on the internet or Apple 1 - 2 decades ago. This man has historically had a pretty good indicator of what’s going on and he’s a pretty big on Bitcoin nowadays. Millennials are waking up to crypto, let’s go!

  • Also the guy in the background when chamath it talking big tech

  • Well,we in the 3rd year and it hit $58k👀👀👀chamath looking very credible

  • Bank account in cyber space😉

  • Dogecoin is the Bitcoin of 2012. You might not trust in it or in the meme generation right now. Just wait until Dogecoin is worth as much as Bitcoin. A single coin of dogecoin will be worth around $10.00 in less then a decade so load up now that it's cents to the penny. Or perhaps don't buy any because I am still not doing buying my share of doges.

  • Mrs Jane is legit and her method works like magic I keep on earning every single week with her new strategy

    • She's really the best, I've made a lot

    • 13th wining thanks to Mrs Jane

    • Most people remain poor only because friends and relatives discouraged and advise them against investing and trading forex while the wise ones kept investing and growing higher financially

    • Her trading last week was boom

    • She gave her clients nice attention

  • 2021 and i promise you all those have jumped on the bitcoin train

  • "We can do that about vaccines". Man, Chamath's perception and foresight is just off the charts.

    • that man is AMAZING!

  • Chamath Palihapitiya is soo humble & a straight arrow

  • Cryptocurrencies in general cannot be overlooked, and their usecases are endless, hence the main reason institutions are getting into it. Also, nothing that the growth of bitcoin and ethereum has been significant over the past few years. The market is still fresh and relatively new compared to other markets that have been in existence over the past decades or centuries hence the need to hold more now. Holding more at this stage is very important, and one of those ways to do it is by trading. You don't wake up and start trading, instead, you seek the assistance of a professional who has an in-depth insight on how the market works. I was lucky enough to meet a pro named Nyberg through one of his early days podcast on the need to hold cryptocurrency as that will revolutionize the way we see things and spend money in the future. Nyberg guides me on how to trade, and now I hold more bitcoin, and I have also learned much from him. The challenges ahead are endless and hence the need for everyone to take the opportunity now that it is still early, and you can do that by reaching out to Nyberg to guide you through. He will guide you on how to get started effectively, and you can get through to Nyberg on Tele-gram (nyberghan), and Whats-App (+44-742-722-9815).

    • @Nigel Griffith Of course that will be a wise decision to take.

    • I've been reading and watching about the potentials of crypto and I think I will just have to take the time now to invest.

    • @Bernard Mosley Freedom is what we crave for, and I am also glad cryptocurrency provides that.

    • Cryptocurrency is freedom, and I am glad to be part of it.

    • @christaly07 He is currently the best at what he does and if you haven't used his services yet, I will advise you to use not to waste any further time.

  • government can't print money but any guy in the basement can mine new coins on their gaming rig???

  • Pride is a really enemy for really civilization

  • These interviewers lol 😂 where did CNBC find this lot

  • It's strange how people talk about all the profits, they've been making through trading of bitcoin, while am here not making any profit at all. Please can Someone put me through on the right path.

  • Why would you put bitcoins in an ira. Would you pay income taxes instead of capital gains.

  • I love this guy's philosophy

  • Chamath is telling these folks that, YES INVEST IN BITCOIN at 15k, it will be at 100k or worth $1 million in the future. BTC ($47,917) as of Feb 26, 2021

  • Aloooha, 1st time experiencing the squawk box. & for me, it was like drinking a cocktail filled w/an incredible amount of emotional ingredients while taking off on a blind vertical pipeline reef exposing free fall drop. I found the speed of the conversational exchanges to be well timed & the topics agreeable yet unacceptable yet somehow alluring. I found the financial terms to be confusing, yet understandable & the inside information utterly fascinating. I found that the shows content was agreeable, respectful, knowledgeable, funny, disagreeable, intriguing, confusing & understandable. What a ride🤙

  • We thank God for the blessing we received from the wealth we ask for an have already

  • I love how they were freaking about the idea of people putting 1 percent of the net worth in Bitcoin. Lol “but you got money to play with” (what a joke)

  • I took the risk dealing with Luiz to be in charge of my trade and finally end up with perfect testimony.his platform is amazing and very straightforward.

    • +1.8.0.3.5.6.6.0.6.9.7.

  • No ones gonna talk about the guy behind Chamath in the glass acting like a weirdo

  • this guy is smart as hell.

  • I like Chamath but it’s clear he can’t openly bash Facebook at all. There’s quite a few reasons for this as well.

  • These guys are idiots thats why chamath is a billionaire and they are not

  • The spicy signature prognostically instruct because chocolate internationally retire outside a zesty metal. needless, rude moustache

  • The quaint coal comparably record because sycamore thessaly decide anenst a spiritual robin. abject, reminiscent monday

  • I can't believe how clueless these hosts are...

  • 0:02 yo why does this guy have a reptilian eye?

    • Its not a reptilian eye, its called a coloboma.

  • Haha they look stupid meow

  • This old guys a joke

  • I'm from the future, it's 2021. BTC hit 58k. BUY!

  • I can resist all but the stock alerts!

  • Social Media, Pornography, etc.....many internet related issues facing society and children.

  • What a great man! Love his character!

  • Wow this guy is relevant of what bubble crypto fiat cult happening today’s “tulips” too-lips 🌷

  • I began investing in crypto mid-pandemic mid-recession as a restaurant employee.Scared money doesn’t make money

  • can the interviewers be quiet and let him speak seeing as how he is the guest and thats why we all showed up... to hear him speak.

  • Legend has it the elderly moderator still defends his less-known employer, the central banks.

  • Wow looking at this in 2021, $17,000 is a great discount to get BTC at a current price of 46k. Yes you would’ve gone through a roller coaster at the time but if you just placed 1% of your portfolio into BTC you would be alright by now.

  • Recently,I invested in both stock and crypto but currently I believe crypto is doing much more better than stocks!

  • Imagine how these cats are feeling today with 1 bitcoin selling in excess of $50,000. Chamath is smart, periodT!!!!

  • Chamath Palihapitiya should watch his back. I would so gladly be security for this man!

  • hahahaha... bitcoin are never understood by this old guys...hahahaha..

  • The interview isn't about you guys don't insert the conversation about you lifes. Let the man speak.

  • Chamath might be proven right

  • Chamath the master 2021 and look where btc is . The idiotic journalist just dont get it trying hard to be smart but cant.

  • He admits that the addiction to feedback is the problem, and this is from one of the greatest facilitators of that very addiction. Irony. BTW, he has a tell - he used eye contact to emphasize his "sincerity".

  • I will pay just to listen to what this guy has to say.

  • In other words.....I got rich pushing it to other people.....and I like my money.....don't wanna give it up.......but the product isn't for me and I won't feed it to my own kids.

  • Free Wisdom. Thanks!

  • Wish I watched 3 years ago.....

  • #weedcoin #founder 🙌🤣

  • How much bitcoin has been purchased with super bills 🤣🔎🤷‍♂️

  • The hosts are morons 🤷‍♂️

  • In 2017, Bitcoin had an incredible year, with a bull run that rewarded investors with a 1,350 percent return and an all-time high of $20,000 as an early Christmas present. In 2018, however, the picture was very different. Bitcoin lost over 70 percent of its value, dropping from $14,000 on January 1st to below $4,000 to close the year. The bear market would last throughout 2018 and 2019, and many sector related companies did not survive the extended crypto winter.

    • Saw it all 1st hand 💎 ✋

    • All thanks to Mr. Dwayne Clooney for the great work he is doing in the crypto world, I was a novice when I got in contact with him, but he guided me to my way to success in crypto trading.

    • At the start of 2020, Bitcoin investors began the year in a bullish mood. The bear market was over and Bitcoiners were looking to Bitcoin’s third halving in May to provide the catalyst for a new bull run. However, the COVID-19 pandemic was a black swan event that poured cold water on bull market hopes. In March, the Bitcoin price flash-crashed down to just under US$4000, a drop of more than 50% as investors in all markets went to cash as the reality of the pandemic set in.

  • BTC: why you mad bro??

  • These imbeciles still doubting Bitcoin. How many years does it have to grow at an average of 300% before they just give it up already? These clowns act like a 1% allocation is somehow risky, while the ttech stocks they own are trading at a thousand times price per earnings. Quit schilling for the C.I.A., you fricking drones.

  • This guy totally gets it. Why the hell or how the hell did FaceBooT stray?

  • Can the dumb people let the smart guy talk

  • Mrs Florine is very calm and ready to teach anyone how to trade and my advice for everyone is to invest on Bitcoin especially now that bitcoin is on bearish run✅

    • She's the best ASAP 👆💯

    • *+1 2 1 3 3 7 6 2 1 1 0* 🇺🇲

    • Seeking for contact details👇🏻

    • Who is this professional everyone is talking about I always see her post on top comments on every ISchats video I watched

    • +1 2 1 3 3 7 6 2 1 1 0

  • As of today, 2021-02-20, bitcoin is at US$ 57,031.

  • When she asks if it would be a different answer for retail investor vs hedge fund , 🤦‍♂️ 1% of net worth is applicable whether you're wealthy or not. It is not hard to save up what would be 1% of your net worth.

  • Bitcoin is only another GameStop that will drop very soon to its lowest in years. Elon Musk just announced his going to sell his 1.5 billion bitcoin and will walk off profiting from your investment. Take your money out of bitcoin the sooner the better!

  • @chamath buddy Amazon is a monopoly in countries where it dominates the market share... like sure China Africa and Russia may have alibaba jumia and ozon, in Europe, india the us etc amazon definitely has a market monopoly

  • Lol these cnbc guys holding on to fiat currencies like they are the golden goose they rode to success. Lol buy Bitcoin don’t try and catch the guy in something he said 😂 he said society appears better but everyone is stressed and depressed

  • The genius of this guy is incredible! He's an electrical engineer, turned financial guru. I think everyone should follow whatever he says. I imagine he fully understand the source code for bitcoin.

  • Brilliant super thinking... Wow... Impressive interview...

  • One minute and 22 seconds into this video and I immediately got out because these hosts have absolutely NO manners. They just kept butting in and going on and on trying to control the debate. *IDOTS* These people have absolutely no vision...no insight as per how life works and in what possible direction the future is headed. they don't even know what questions to ask. They're clueless. What a wasted interview.

  • It seems that all these etc guys, Facebook creator etc do not allow their children anywhere near a computer or a phone. Their kids do not have all this an option but they sure are happy to take the money from other peoples kids being online constantly.

  • This kind of honest debate is something the media has less and less of.

  • Boomer with coffee cup was a true gem. 1% bitcoin is all chamath said. 1%

  • My man parents like I do, like how my parents did, like how it should be! 💪🏾

  • Hellooooo 55,000

  • Just thought i'd make a comment so the haters on the panel can kick themselves in the ass.

  • Why do they don't let him talk ffs, shut up

  • 969 Dislikes because they dont like 1 colour in the ColorBook.

  • Whenever I listen Chamath speak I hear 100% value. Whenever the interviewers butt in to interrupt him I hear nothing but 100% garbage. It's like they want to sound relevant, but they don't at all.

  • This aged well!

  • Bitcoin now at $54,000. Shut up dinosaurs lol

  • This is one intelligent and well spoken man.

  • These interviewers keep interrupting him! It’s so annoying

  • The old guy is an absolutely clueless idiot lol

  • The untidy afghanistan intermittently subtract because archeology identically heat within a smart snake. pointless, same eggnog

  • The damaging newsstand periodically knot because top successively stretch except a hard equipment. embarrassed, lamentable bra

  • Dudes calling it out and he is in the game and the media is doing everything to discredit what he saying as they preserve their best interests...

  • Can't wait for the implants

  • The second-hand shark annually like because lung disappointingly impress minus a alleged poland. six, late save

  • EVEDO. PUTTING THE EVENTS INDUSTRY ON THE BLOCKCHAIN. 20 CENTS A TOKEN, UNDER 3 MILLION DOLLAR MARKET CAP. 17.7 MILLION TOTAL SUPPLY, UNIFYING ALL PARTICIPANTS IN THE EVENTS INDUSTRY. A TRUE GEM WITH ENORMOUS UPSIDE. WITH THE CORONA VIRUS CREATING HAVOC AT THE MOMENT, THIS TOKEN IS STILL VERY LOW, BUT WHEN THE VACCINES HAVE BEEN ROLLED OUT AND THE CONCERTS AND FESTIVALS ARE BANGING AGAIN, THIS IS GOING TO ROCKET. COMMISSION FREE TICKET PLATFORM ALREADY LIVE WITH THE BLOCKCHAIN CUTTING OUT THE MIDDLE-MAN, PARTNERSHIP WITH TOMMOROWLAND IN THE BAG ALREADY AND MANY MORE ON THE WAY, GET INVOLVED. THIS ONE COMPANY COULD MAKE YOU MILLIONS. BEST AND MOST TRANSPARENT TEAM IN THE SPACE.

  • New age intelligence/the future vs. old, meat heads. Hilarious.

    • There are plenty of older people whom have class and intelligence. We're talking TV news reporters... they're all paid actors. Paid to maintain a mind numbing reality.

  • I like the coin

  • Only one billionaire in the room and they talk over him and interrupt. Good job guys.

  • Seems most execs of media companies do NOT allow their children to use the products they push. Wake up people!

  • The burly swamp lastly grin because tail separately wreck underneath a ritzy option. high-pitched, insidious cork

  • Again a former silence Indian brain with 0 respect behind a white big succes being exposed. Surved him right or not?

  • It's time for Joe to step down. That guy has been a moronic tool for the past few years.

  • "Duh"

  • Bitcoin starts to drop since this interview, Dec 2017.

  • Bitcoin is a scam just like 401K. The casino is legally open for the rich.

    • @Joseph Yi Regarding "your pyramid" I think you are being very short sighted. I don't have to participate to see what is happening and will happen. Elon Musk interplanetary proposition is giving you a hint of what's coming. I am not going to be part of it cause I am at the end of my life already but, the way current events are projecting humans will have to overcome their own collective stupidity sooner or later. AI is not an idea: AI is learning. Just keep that in mind. When Eric Schmidt ex-google ceo spends $20M in a D-Wave Quantum Computer to figure out human trends it's time to pay attention. So if you are going to wait for the look in my face I suggest you buy a good mirror... maybe a convex one so you can capture the details. Cause it's gonna be a long time coming.

    • @Joseph Yi I bought and sold Tesla stock when it was convenient. I don't have to do anything else for the rest of my life. Rich is not the one that has a lot but the one that has everything they need. Regarding Bitcoin I despise their proposition. When I bought Tesla back then there were several reasons. One of them was Elon Musk's attitude of "taking no prisoners" against corporations, "big oil" and all the other conventional dinosaurs. Bitcoin, on the other hand, IS the establishment. You talk Bitcoin I barter. You and me are different worlds. Last, I have no problem you getting into that boat, I am not the type that is herded into anything. I don't subscribe to anything I don't like or do business that don't make me smile. BTW take GameTop for example, it was a nice joke to make the short sellers cry for their lives. I enjoy every minute of it. Kudos to those who did that. Just like I did when I had Tesla for 5 years or so when those very same short sellers came after me. So beware the sword is double edge and some people have the power to swing it both ways.

    • @Angelum Band lol can't wait to see the look on your face in 5 years though when your pyramid scheme turned out to be a global standard

    • @Angelum Band I'm also a big proponent and holder of Tesla, but i recognize it's currently overvalued compared to what it actually produces and sells currently. It's a speculative asset that surprise! also bought 1.5 billion dollars of bitcoin, a speculative asset. But what people don't realize are Both have revolutionary technologies, Elon isn't dumb. I suggest you study more about bitcoin. But doesn't matter, with or without you Tesla, bitcoin and block chain will be the future

    • @Joseph Yi Regret it? LOL! I bought Tesla shares back then when they were $39 a piece. I don't have to work and don't owe anyone anything. I buy real technology not useless pyramid scams.
