Ted Bauman Skeptical About Bitcoin’s Future

As of late, Bitcoin has become one of the most widely talked about and sought after products in the investment world, and while the prospects associated with Bitcoin, and cryptocurrency as a whole seem to be on the upswing, there is one significant factor that may lead to its early demise – Bitcoin is slow. The editor of The Bauman Letter, Ted Bauman recently asked his readers to envision a time when Bitcoin has become mainstream, and it is needed to execute a quick transaction. Well, the problem is, at its current capability, a single transaction might take minutes, or even hours, while traditional credit card institutions, such as Visa, can process most transactions in an instant. If the technology for Bitcoin to catch up with traditional outlets isn’t created soon, it may not be able to compete over the long haul. Visit Ted Bauman at medium.com for more info.
