world without the need for a central organization exactly minus the middleman minus the middleman bitcoin is one of the most famous examples james could you tell us perhaps if you think that coins going to be round for long because a lot of investors are interested right now a lot of people are piling money into that the thing i'm most interested in is i'm bullish on is the future of cryptocurrency as a whole big coin itself could one day be viewed as something like you know the beginning the internet there were search engines like hell to vista before google when everyone thought this was going to stay current could one day be looked at as the ultimate vista of cryptocurrency it may last but it may not i'm not so excited about anyone cryptocurrency in the technology as a whole now i haven't explain to our viewers what amiga one is ok so amiga one is a trading platform for cryptocurrency is right now there's about fifty different crypto currency exchanges around the walls. all of which fragmented from each other
12:21 pm
and a lot of which has been twelve billion dollars hats off the exchanges so far so meager one is a platform that enables people to trade safely without the risk of how. acking across all of the crypt the currency exchanges in the walls how do you do that how do you make it safe. there's a lot of complication in terms of the technology decentralized all its escrow functions that probably we don't need to go into right now but with smart he flew a lot of work is that the short answer to that. the technology itself and the platform you've got a three d. model that may explain to viewers a little bit about how it works could you explain that change yeah the cryptocurrency is a whole new game and i believe and we believe that it demands new technology for visualising crypto markets and for showing crypto markets in a way that goes beyond just charts and graphs we've been developing three dimensional visualisations using tech i learned as a four year virtual reality developer veteran to bring that kind of advanced tech
12:22 pm
to crypto currency trading i've got another question for you alex i c o's are also shoots of the moment specially for startups a lot of money is being raised there is that safe money that's being raised i mean i mean is that money that suddenly can be worth half of what it was the next day. and it appears there we have lost ben and his two guests from one apologies for that but of course divorce is very very busy this time of day certainly with a lot of coverage there and we'll continue with our coverage obviously throughout the day you can always find out more on our website a d w dot com business there's plenty more on our facebook site and on our twitter feed so do check it out meanwhile it's not just the world's most powerful politicians and leading figures from the world of business who are gathering in

12:24 pm
a night get more together and more creative. all three passionate europeans. we have common values. that me that we are you know i'm unique a part of the french language or really. we are a place where we. are effective. but there could be a bigger shared sense of europe. i believe we could have a stronger sense of belonging in europe like what you have in the us when i lived there many people had a much stronger connection to their country and that's not something we have in europe even less so in germany i believe the sense of feeling european isn't really there.
12:25 pm
and the future of europe. may be different cultures should be taken more into account because greek has a specific certain history culture it's a different from the italians from. the swedish people so. her cheerily differences should be taken into account in decision making process and should respect the debate in europe goes on and these young people are here to contribute to it. so there are cultural differences the differences between the young and the old and then there's the disconnect between politics big business and the public which has led to protests across switzerland this week directed at the world economic forum for many people davos stands for an out of touch global and neat set on multiplying their own extreme wealth and leaving the rest behind that

12:27 pm
my second point is that miss levy to be is very much the result of violence war fear tensions in society also inequality we have to address the profound with causes of misery and violence in order to address more comprehensively. the questions and answers are matched and put side by side on instagram it's an effort to connect global leaders with real world concerns from real people. that's a business update here on g.w. for now i want to thank you keeping me company and of course don't forget to check out our twitter feed for more in the next hour if you want to. come. with.
