Ted also publishes articles on the economic trends, investment ideas, taxation, and his views concerning the future of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the Medium.com and in CrunchBase. In one of his articles in CrunchBase, Ted highlights what he believes is the main problem with Bitcoin. In his article, he says that its slowness in processing transactions is its greatest weakness as a currency. The 6.5 transactions per second processed by the bitcoin network are way too slow compared to credit cards which have over 2000 transactions completed in a single second. Ted says that unless something is done to solve this problem, bitcoin may never be a viable currency especially with the impatience nature of people.
