Ted Bauman on the Safety of Bitcoin

In The Bauman Letter, finance expert, Ted Bauman, recently weighed in on his position regarding one of the hottest products on the market – Bitcoin. While he insists that cryptocurrencies are here to stay, Bitcoin is currently facing a major problem that might bring about its premature end. While traditional financial institutions such as Visa or Mastercard, are able to process thousands of transactions each second, Bitcoin is sorely lagging behind, with the power to only process a handful of transactions each second. Because of this, the time it takes to process a Bitcoin transaction may range anywhere from a few minutes, to an hour, drastically reducing its practical use. This becomes increasingly problematic when dealing with services that require immediate transactions, such as pumping gas or leaving a parking deck. On a slow day, the lack of processing speed could leave you stranded for hours. This is an issue that the heads of Bitcoin are frantically trying to solve, and as of late, they have implemented Bitcoin Cash. While the future of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency seems to be bright, this deficiency is causing experts, such as Ted Bauman to remain cautious when making investments.
