Bitcoin Boosted by CBS
On Sunday morning ( Father's Day), CBS sent an eight-minute segment on Bitcoin – the last time a mainstream outlet has discussed the matter in depth.

The twins' early involvement in Facebook and Bitcoin was discussed, with the anchor mentioned that he is not surprised that the so-called "Winklevi" has been at the forefront for two trends: social media and digital money.
Simple Bitcoin concepts were mentioned, with CBS copying "money acting like email" and the twins emphasizing that BTC has the potential to overcome gold. The anchor also mentioned Facebook's forthcoming crypto competition. It is not clear how many viewers the segment received, but this number probably varies in the single-digit millions – not bad.
Interestingly, some have come out to criticize the report, which this author believes was most balanced. Prominent commentator and solid Bitcoin bull American HODL noted that the fact CBS claims that BTC is "smooth and incomprehensible" is a bit irresponsible, because the withdrawal pushes "FUD" if you want.
You see, as HODL explains, "just because you can't understand it doesn't mean everyone can't. Believe it or not, some of us actually get what happens here."

Low IQ. Seasonal Preference. A recipe for a terrible life.
