    It’s the law of large numbers and experimental vs. theoretical probability. If you do it once, even though it’s a fifty-fifty shot of winning, the real odds will be 100% loss or 100% win. If you do it more times, the closer you get to 50/50. Because the bet is in your favor, a 50% rate of loss will still result in a 150% cash gain.

    I don’t understand how people can be so clueless when it comes it risk management. I bet the same people own stocks with poor risk management as well and wonder why they lose money.

    Yes i will do it 10$ for 10$ reason being is because even if the outcome is a 50 to 50 chance if I were to win then I’d have double the amount.

    I think this is much more an issue of trust. What if the spectators doesn't know you? What if they think you are unwilling to give away this money? That you are a scammer, using the camera to create fake trust. Maybe they think you are giving away fake money and they don't know how to check if the money is real. In this experiment, no participant explicitly or implicitly communicated concern for distrust, but creating more trust, could make some of the participants more willing to go along.

    Because you're Veritasium, I would do it for 20. If you were a random stranger, probably 50+. I think I'd be more likely if it was $1/$2, or even $1/$1.50.

    lol at the end it's like he's trying to hide that he's actually upset about giving all that money away. "so if you like this video you should share it with your friends.. so that this actually turns out to be a positive bet..for me.. Yeah.. share i- share it with your friends. It's Veritasium. It's the name of the website... Veritasium." lol why is that so hilarious to me

    You have to consider that what you lose by losing 10 bucks might be worse than the benefit of gaining 20.
