in berlin is with me in this studio now is dr barry gaze a scene i've seen a business consultant with bearing point welcome to the studio of. what's your general feeling do politicians have any idea what they're dealing with in terms of crypto currency i think they have an idea. government of the federal republic of germany had made a block in strategy and they have shown that they have understood very well what the blocked on and she could to do it could combine secure nurse against manipulation of data the transferability of data which is an old woman. the internet we had an internet of information snow we could have an internet of trusted information sense of well you. just a simple question one that maybe politicians will ask you later today 10 years from now will you still have banks and central banks i think we will have because
