In the last few weeks, we've reported on the problems and criticisms with Bitcoin. Over the weekend, the economist known as Dr. Doom, Nouriel Roubini, said Bitcoin isn’t even a currency, isn’t safe and is a “Ponzi game.”
Yesterday, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman told Fox Business that he doesn't understand it and thinks it's "totally surreal.”
On the other hand, Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Aaron Task found a warm reception for Bitcoin at SXSW. “They love Bitcoin,” he says.
“The people here really believe in it. They’re using it. And they think it is the future of - not currency, but of a payment method,” says Task. “That’s the subtle distinction that people are starting to make.”
