"Using Bitcoin does to the big banks what e-mail does to the Postal Service."

http://m.ibtimes.com/u-s-postal-service-first-class-mail-donahoe-congress-214545.html

Quote
"We simply need fewer facilities to process less mail," Megan Brennan, said chief operating officer of the Postal Service.
 
The postal service has experienced fast decline in First Class mail due to the Internet, as more people use e-mail and online bill pay instead. In the last five years, for example, First Class mail volume has dropped 25 percent. Single-piece first class mail -- letters and such sent with a stamp -- has declined 50 percent in the past decade.

Bitcoin is the world's most powerful computing network. It's harder to hack than any bank in the world.

You can use Bitcoin to buy [their vice] secretly, without giving away personal information on the internet.

Bitcoin is borderless electronic cash - anyone in any country can send and receive bitcoins without signing up anywhere or opening an account.


(ok - so the merchant part, and exchange to local currency part aren't quite there on a global scale - but it gives an idea of the potential.)

I seem to encounter a lot of really profoundly nontechnical people (which is odd, since I live in the Bay area and am a professional geek but I just don't cultivate a ton of geek social connections for whatever reason). I tell lay people:

Quote
"these days the biggest supercomputer in the world is Bitcoin"

whenever I do this I always feel guilty for not saying

Quote
"these days the distributed computer system with the most processing power is Bitcoin."

but if I said that they would hear: (in a nasal, condescending tone)

Quote
"it's common knowledge that today the most powerful discombobulated hyper-processing aparatus in terms of decagigadefenestrations is, of course, the P9783.419 Microsupergigaperambulator which as everybody knows is being offered by Confusosoft as a metahypomux of the ultracombowhatsit.'"

So I just keep it simple.

Satoshi himself gave us good lines when version 0.3 was released:

Announcing version 0.3 of Bitcoin, the P2P cryptocurrency!  Bitcoin is a digital currency using cryptography and a distributed network to replace the need for a trusted central server.  Escape the arbitrary inflation risk of centrally managed currencies!  Bitcoin's total circulation is limited to 21 million coins.  The coins are gradually released to the network's nodes based on the CPU power they contribute, so you can get a share of them by contributing your idle CPU time.

Don't know about the "average person", but "work" is a physics term that measures energy consumed in Joules. One Joule is equal to a watt.second. Finding the "magic number" proves that on average, you expended a certain ammount of energy (given reasonable assumptions about your mining setup).

So I used this one line twice today not because I was planning on it but it just came out of my mouth.  It was VERY effective.  I had a whole conversation about 5 min with one person.  For the second person they asked for more information and I gave them three websites which I wrote down on a receipt for him.  The second person was a cashier and he saw my "bitbill".  I started explaining to him and what hooked him in was this line:

"Bitcoin is going to end all wars."

Yep, I know it's a shocker line but I believe in it and it just makes people curious about what it was.  Once he was hooked the final push was me mentioning how "bitcoin is controlled by the power of mathematics."

Use my one liners! Worked for me!  :)

That's technically impossible considering it relies on the internet.

If we go non-technical though; it's not an unreasonable tagline.

Bitcoin trading is limited by the physical boundaries of the Internet.  Except it isn't limited at all; physical bitcoins are made and could be used without being near a computer.

In that sense, Bitcoin is bigger than the Internet.

Since it's only a PR line, it's not really worth worrying that much about.

Well, if we include casacius coins and paper wallets and cards, bitcoins can go in and out of internet: in that sense, we could contend that it is bigger than internet.

Bitcoin is your money, immune to abuse by governments and banks.

The Democratization of Money: Bitcoin is the Currency of Liberation

And thus came Bitcoin, some lasting thing that men might keep without spoiling, and that by mutual consent men would take in exchange for the truly useful, but perishable supports of life.

For the first time in history, we as individuals have access to tools which will allow us to truly take hold of our own wealth, and participate directly in the system that controls it.

Back In 1995 asking most firms about their Internet strategy yielded the same response as does asking organizations today for their Bitcoin strategy.

Bitcoin is a lot like oil for those who realize, that is like oil was before the invention of the internal combustion engine & there's a lot of smart dedicated people working on that part right now so stake your claims folks.

Thanks to forum ID: Myself who pointed this out in a chat & put it much simpler than I did which is probably best.

Simpler version was something like:

Bitcoin atm is like oil was before the invention of the combustion engine.

@herzmeister
Long story short, if we really have to come up with something about its backing, then Bitcoin is backed by the common effort of the world-wide community, its incentive to keep the system running, and the passion to build upon its unique features.

Unlike money today, Bitcoin is not backed by force, it's backed by love.

I think we should listen to the words of the Founding Father not only according to arms but to the currency, the information, the internet etc.

Bitcoin gives us what is the most important - the independence and the freedom.

What is bitcoin?

if you're against Butterfly Labs, you're against bitcoin.

Sorry, but I would have to agree with the first statement, butterfly labs' business model is AWFUL for the bitcoin adoption. THERE IS NO EXCUSE for a company to:

* Charge upfront for a product they haven't release. Look at leapmotion.com a relatively new company that is about to release a hot product and they would never charge your credit car until they ship the product to you.

* postpone release of a product over and over for more than 8 months. Company released updates that made no sense, and from a project management point of view looking back, there was NO WAY that they could have released ASIC on the original release date. That shows lack of professionalism and that obviously hurt the bitcoin community and its attempt to bring more adopters.

Butterfly labs is a joke. And I'd know a thing or two about business and retail, I work for a fortune 50 company.
So yeah, I'd have to agree that Bitcoin and Butterfly Labs shouldn't be used in the same sentence, at least not for now.

My one liner...

http://i.imgur.com/2icHQiO.png

The line being the price chart one that goes from Christmas & New Years 2011 when I reminded my good friends that I celebrated it with that the coins I'd bought the month before at under $3 were already showing a healthy profit & that they should get in to some, same friends that I recommended gold to in March 2007 when it was $666 per Oz & they said Oh No,no,no - by then it had made about 300% in under 4 years - anyway they've had updates when bitcoin doubled to $6, then redoubled to $12, yet again to $24 & recently to $48 plus & they still haven't been persuaded that it is even worth a look at, other friends I've also tried to interest have been equally unreceptive, one of the more investment minded & entrepreneurial I printed out this chart when visiting for lunch recently highlighting 2012 summer's $6 price when I emailed him re looking in to this & the price when we met up last month, $24 = a fourfold increase, he did start to pay some attention & said he'd get back to me - expect that he may be a little shocked that $24 is ancient history now already.

I respectfully disagree. Please don't spread false information about Bitcoin. use "Minimal" or "insignificant". But there is definitely "fees" involved for MOST transactions.

"At the moment, many transactions are typically processed in a way where no fee is expected at all"
"Transaction fees are voluntary on the part of the person making the bitcoin transaction"
"The transaction fee is therefore an incentive on the part of the bitcoin user to make sure that a particular transaction will get included into the next block"
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Transaction_fees

This is how I was assuming Bitcoin still worked. Moving forward we have to be careful as even the tiniest fees can be debilitating to those processing a large volume of micro-transactions. I think these tiny transactions will be a big part of the future of Bitcoin. But I'm still under the impression that money can be sent for free. Please correct me if I'm still wrong.

Ok, more informative guys please correct me if I got this wrong. If you go to any "new" transaction on blockchain.info you will see an estimation for the first confirmation. The position in the queue to be confirmed is determined (or estimated) by how big the transaction is (Size wise and not amount wise). considering how large the fees included are, plus both how old is this transaction and how much the included fees are.

This means even though a transaction was made before another, The older transaction might be pushed back in the queue because it has no fees included or low fees. This queuing mechanism is not infinite and on the times where alot of people are making transactions a no fee transaction might take a very long time and sometimes (Yes it happened alot and to me personally a few times) this transaction might not happen at ALL, Especially if that transaction was big (Size wise and not amount wise).

The day where you simply cannot make a free transaction or a very low fee transaction is getting closer and closer but really don't sweat it Bitcoin is still light years away from being "Expensive" way to send money. (Please don't start the micro transaction cost guys, That is a VERY different story).

I hope this shed some light and please tell me if I am mistaken about something.

Bitcoin: You can’t counterfeit the Bit; you don’t want to deal with common capers and the lawless. Don’t throw a fit, Obama just wants a peek inside your paper wallets. No one need fear, because Satoshi is here! Oh Nakamoto, you’re quite the hero. Mark Karpelès walked around downtown Tokyo[Toe-Key—OH-O]. What did he hope to find, what did he hope to find, while searching around outside? He walked over to ol’ Mt. Gox and pocketed 850,000 crypto-coins… B-I-T-C-OIN, B-I-T-C-OIN.

AND BITCOIN WAS ITS NAME-O.

But that’s not the end of our story, nope, not today, no. What happened to our old friend Mark Karpelès? Oh…

Mark Karpelès! Watch as he plays a game called “How To Snare a Bitmillionaire.” Yet from here, he declares and swears, that he was merely caught unawares, of just what was going on downstairs, to his wares. No, he was too busy pocketing his shares. Mt. Gox is worse than all the cartels—thanks a lot, Markie Mark. Ready your prayers and your affairs, Mister Mark Karpelès, because I’m meeting you at the thoroughfares, while I'm out there. I set off the flares; make sure your glares aren’t causing you to become even more impaired.

So, he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the fares, ye root up also the bears. Say your farewells, Mr. Mark Karpelès. You attempted repairs, and we watch while you blunder alone at home. Oh, but he yells and despairs as he's taken from there, “No! Not without my waifu’s underwear!” Anne Frankly while I did Nazi this coming, it has nonetheless brought tears to my eyes, regardless. Though many decide to acquiesce his largesse, despite the mess and less success—unless his waifu's caress makes one reassess and egress—Karpelès would repress to guess, unless success chose to transgress… he'd dress himself in none but the best and most obviously fresh, suggests his pretty pockets are filled with a certain address, loaded with all his assets, while his confidants try to annex the press. Indeed, oh yes. And to concluded this hairy-tale, as a lone sacrificial lamb of Mark's once said… “You just got Mt. Goxed, my friend.”

Also, please share your favorite bitcoin fanatic saying in this thread for collaboration and critique Smiley

A: "who invented paper money and why cant you speak to him today. in both cases it does not matter you can easily see the history and research and speak to any current value producers. the inventor is just a name in history"



Thanks! The hackers response I've been using. I had my own twist on it, 'bitcoin was forged in the foundry of hackers, scoundrels and idealists'. I'm borrowing that inventor of money reply.

http://m.ibtimes.com/u-s-postal-service-first-class-mail-donahoe-congress-214545.html

Quote
"We simply need fewer facilities to process less mail," Megan Brennan, said chief operating officer of the Postal Service.
 
The postal service has experienced fast decline in First Class mail due to the Internet, as more people use e-mail and online bill pay instead. In the last five years, for example, First Class mail volume has dropped 25 percent. Single-piece first class mail -- letters and such sent with a stamp -- has declined 50 percent in the past decade.

can anyone think of any good ones? something you could quickly mention to someone, like a fact or something.. stuff like, "there are over (some number) bitcoin related sites".. whatever, anyone got anything good?

How about... if we'd of all sunk our life savings into bitcoins back when OP posted this we'd all be millionaires.

Without the benefit of hindsight, would that be any smarter than sinking your life savings into bitcoin right now? Now that the gateways have been built, we're just a few soft (http://www.blockstream.com/) forks (http://lightning.network/) away from global liberation.

Oh, I remember this thread. It's like a roll call of all the old time cheerleaders. The best part of this thread is it doesn't have any of the old timers that became scammers or went to prison. Edit: oops, I just saw Andrew Bitcoiner posted so never mind, there is a scammer.



Bruno's is still the best one liner.

This one made me laugh  :D :

Bitcoin is money for smart people. You wouldn't be interested.

And here's another to add which I didn't see in the list:

Bitcoin - The Honey Badger of money.

Bitcoin will do to banks what email did to the postal industry

Really? You're repeating the first answer to this thread.

"Using Bitcoin does to the big banks what e-mail does to the Postal Service."

http://m.ibtimes.com/u-s-postal-service-first-class-mail-donahoe-congress-214545.html

Quote
"We simply need fewer facilities to process less mail," Megan Brennan, said chief operating officer of the Postal Service.
 
The postal service has experienced fast decline in First Class mail due to the Internet, as more people use e-mail and online bill pay instead. In the last five years, for example, First Class mail volume has dropped 25 percent. Single-piece first class mail -- letters and such sent with a stamp -- has declined 50 percent in the past decade.

Some things I've read too many times here:

We've reached the bottom, it won't go any lower.
Bitcoin is dead, sell before it's too late.

If we were to calculate the gains of all the scammers and compared them to the gains of all the buy and holders there is no doubt that in the end, the buy and holders are way ahead.  I'm sure there's the outlying scammer who is also way out in front but I don't believe I'd trade my buy and hold position for having to look over my shoulder to see who's standing there with handcuffs every time I spend a satoshi.

cryptocurrency is new era for currency/financial

I think the more world ages will be more advanced technology where we are more interested in the speed and easiness than cryptcurrency gave us what we want.
