Revisited: Is Bitcoin the future of money or a giant Ponzi scheme?

• 24 min

To its supporters, Bitcoin is the biggest revelation in finance in a thousand years. To its critics, it’s a giant Ponzi scheme.   So is Bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies, the future of finance? How secure are the blockchains that they’re built on? And will we all be buying art through NFTs, non fungible tokens, in the future, rather than paintings for our walls?    In this revisited episode from December 2021, we speak to our Economics Correspondent Helia Ebrahimi about cryptocurrency, the future of our financial system, and how she could have been a Bitcoin success story - if only she could find the key to the crypto she bought.  Sources: Twitter/@jjames_ak, BBC News, Reuters
