Chart 83 !

Tomi T Ahonen

Hi Frederic

Thanks, we have your vote, and you'll be happy to hear that your choice, Chart 83 AR is now in a clear leadership position with less than four hours to go

Tomi T Ahonen


Hey, sorry, there is no chart by that name...

(and this comment he lets remain)

Tomi Ahonen :-)


I vote for charts 100, 101, 102

Tomi T Ahonen

Fab Winter. But you're only allowed one. So I'll take chart 100 unless you want to clarify otherwise - now Winter, note, if you happen to be on Twitter, you can ALSo vote there a second time

Tomi Ahonen :-)

Joan Stewart

Charts 72, 73 and 75 would be most interesting. Question: Is there Digital Money such as Bitcoin coming into discussion with growth vs Fiat currencies being in turmoil. Mobile payment structure all moving to blockchain, plus many other securities.

Tomi T Ahonen

Hi Joan

Thanks! Same as I just told Winter. I'm only accepting one vote here (plus another vote on Twitter). So as you voted for 3, I'll take the first chart, Chart 72 as your vote. If you want to change that, let me know in the next 3 hours and I'll change it to the one you preferred (73 or 75).

Bitcoin is quite a tricky one, many governments and entities are playing around with it but some digital money experts say Bitcoin is not a currency, its a speculative instrument like gambling or the stock market. Should not be the foundation of a currency. I'm not competent enough to know. Mobile money is FAR FAR FAR bigger already and will utterly rule over Bitcoin so in the big picture, it won't matter. Bitcoin is particularly beloved by Mafia and underworld and extortionists etc - who also love cash.

To all in the thread

We have one hour left to go. Get your votes in now if you want them counted. Remember you can vote both here on the blog (for one chart) and you can also vote on Twitter (for one chart, it doesn't have to be the same but it may be).

Tomi Ahonen :-)

With 12 minutes left, we have a tie-breaking vote. From Twitter a third vote for Chart 64 Mobile Gamers... unless another last-minute vote surge appears, we seem to have our final 3 now...

Vote now or forever hold your peace :-)

Tomi Ahonen :-)
