Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States:
“When Bitcoin currency is converted from currency into cash, that interface has to remain under some regulatory safeguards. I think the fact that within the Bitcoin universe an algorithm replaces the function of the government …[that] is actually pretty cool.” [SOURCE]
Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google:
“[Bitcoin] is a remarkable cryptographic achievement… The ability to create something which is not duplicable in the digital world has enormous value…Lot’s of people will build businesses on top of that.” [SOURCE]

David Marcus, CEO of PayPal: “I really like Bitcoin. I own Bitcoins. It’s a store of value, a distributed ledger. It’s a great place to put assets, especially in places like Argentina with 40 percent inflation, where $1 today is worth 60 cents in a year, and a government’s currency does not hold value. It’s also a good investment vehicle if you have an appetite for risk. But it won’t be a currency until volatility slows down.”

Eric Schmidt discusses Bitcoin on Squawk Box this morning.
I don't have the clip on hand, but I had CNBC on at the gym this morning. Eric Schmidt was pimping his new book and the topic of digital currencies came up. Disclaimer: The following isn't verbatim- I was on the treadmill watching the show closed captioned. There's apparently a section in the book that describes how, with the proliferation of digital currencies like Bitcoin (or Big Coin, according to the cc), the barriers to entry for criminality / terrorism are lowered and prevention / apprehension are made extremely difficult. While there may be a glimmer of truth to parts of that statement, I couldn't help but get the feeling that the entire segment was set up as a FUD job. The way the host teed up the topic was really strange: "I read your entire book, but I stopped reading on page 79. I stopped at 79. You mention the topic of virtual currencies.." and then he begins talking about how they could be used for crime. Maybe it's just my imagination, but it sure felt like his biggest takeaway from the book was that digital currencies are dangerous and enable criminals to do terrible things really easily. Other highlights: Schmidt seems to be intrigued by Bitcoin. He doesn't endorse it, but isn't totally put off by it either. At one point Schmidt was asked whether Google would adopt Bitcoin and his answer amounted to "who knows" You can launder money with Bitcoins :O EDIT: Video here, thanks Miner_Willy - http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000163361&play=1 Watching the segment again, the tee-up didn't play out exactly as I remembered; took a bit longer to get to virtual currencies, but what he actually said was worse in that he goes on this spiel about the Boston bombings as the prelude to talking about virtual currencies..

Bitcoin, Peter Thiel, Eric Schmidt & Bilderberg - The New World Order wants a cashless society. Are we getting it now, via Bitcoin?
WILD SPECULATION VIA GUT FEELING - Could be absolutely wrong...Or, might just be on to something. 1) Bitcoin is reaching new highs on a daily basis. As I type this, Bitstamp is showing a price of $340 per BTC, a 200% increase in a month. 2) Back in May, Bilderberg attendee and PayPal co-founder, Peter Thiel, invests in BitPay, currently the largest BTC payment processor for merchants. 3) Recently, Barack Obama allegedly asked Google CEO and Bilderberg attendee Eric Schmidt whether or not it was something the President "had to worry about." Allegedly, Schmidt didn't know what BTC was. Personally, if true, this is a huge red flag. The CEO of Google, who attends Bilderberg meetings with Peter Thiel, doesn't know what Bitcoin is? Interesting. 4) One of the NWO's goals is a cashless society. No wonder Alex Jones is so skeptical of BTC and Max Keiser's relentless promotion of it. Could it be that the elite are behind Bitcoin? First, they introduce it to the purist libertarians as a stateless, unregulated currency. They let it expand and gain steam at a grassroots level. 4 years after inception, pffft, Eric Schmitd, who attends Bilderberg with Peter Thiel, he hasn't even heard of such a thing (as the price EXPLODES and it's mentioned on CNBC and Bloomberg TV on a regular basis.) Could it be, that once Bitpay integrates a certain threshold of merchants, and BTC becomes known by the masses, that the government & central banks will swoop in and take control of it? A franchise owner of Subway in Pennsylvania has just taken to accepting BTC at his/her restaurants, just as an example of its growth. To me, BTC smells like the conditioning of the masses towards a cashless society. Just sayin'.
