Financial Expert Ted Bauman Skeptical on the Future of Bitcoin

While bitcoin is seen as the potential currency of the future, free from government regulation, experts like Ted Bauman see problems with the scalability. What was once seen as a novel cryptocurrency to purchase things you don’t want tracked on the internet is now being considered a legitimate investment by some with a single bitcoin sometimes being valued at thousands of dollars.

The main problem Bauman sees with bitcoin is the speed of transactions. While bitcoin’s system can handle approximately 7 transactions per second that routinely take up to ten minutes each and sometimes longer, Visa’s current technology can process approximately 1,700 per second and over twenty thousand in seconds during times of high volume in comparison. This problem will be further compounded as bitcoin becomes more widely accepted as a form of payment. Follow Ted Bauman at tumblr.com

While most of the bitcoin community is in agreement that something needs to be done about this problem, very few are in agreement as to what should be done without sacrificing the security that is held in such high regard. Without improvement, the growth of the infamous cryptocurrency is almost sure to slow or even regress back to the novel state it began with. Until major changes are made, Bauman and others will remain skeptical about the future of bitcoin.
