42  Economy / Speculation / Oh shit! Putin buys gold, bad for everyone (except bitcoiners!) on: November 20, 2014, 07:59:42 PM
Putin is buying gold.  http://finance.yahoo.com/news/why-putin-buying-much-gold-210532064.html

The only way gold goes up, is war.  Putin is uniquely positioned for starting a war, realizing huge gold profits.

The cool thing is, bitcoin will also rise up big time in a war scenario.  So everyone should hodl.

My favorite:
The currency is created when people compete to “mine” them. But, unlike gold, there isn’t a finite amount. New supplies of Bitcoins are created from a computer’s processing power and the users behind them.

In the same week California advanced bitcoin development, Europe impedes progress:

California Lawmakers Nudge Bitcoin Further Into The Mainstream http://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelbobelian/2014/07/03/california-lawmakers-nudge-bitcoin-further-into-the-mainstream/

 
EU Banks Must Shun Bitcoin Until Rules in Place
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-07-04/eu-banks-must-shun-bitcoin-until-rules-in-place-eba-says.html


In the US, if it is not yet illegal, then it is legal and the government wants you to go ahead and do it.  In Europe, if there are no laws on some topic, they want you to sit around while lawmakers and policy wonks have debates - to decide what you can do.  Fortunately, almost no real people listen to policy idiots in Europe and Bitcoin development goes on despite these warnings to 'stand around and do nothing'.  

What a joke.  
45  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Las Vegas Bitcoin - conference on: July 04, 2014, 11:23:43 PM
Last year the Las Vegas Bitcoin conference (Inside Bitcoins: http://www.mediabistro.com/insidebitcoins/) was full-on MEGA with tons of people there.  In fact, I think everyone was there.  This year will be even bigger.  

The conference in on October 6 - 7.  You should book it up now.  For all you Euros and Asians, Las Vegas is a great place to visit and will surely be the MAIN bitcoin event of the circuit.  Consider a trip to Vegas.

While 'The D' hotel actually takes bitcoin, there are far nicer places to stay.  The conference was at the MGM - not sure where it will be this year.  But, the south end of the strip has tons of great places to stay.  

See you all there!

46  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Crowdfunding on Bitcoin on: June 04, 2014, 04:15:58 AM
It looks like quite a few new companies are electing to follow MaidSafe and do an IPO by issuing their own shares through bitcoin/mastercoin system.  If MaidSafe raised $6 million - how much can these new companies raise?  Pretty interesting approach.  I wonder if Wall street is getting scared of losing their monopoly on yet another banking function going over to cryptocurrencies.
47  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / New Bitcoin Foundation on: May 23, 2014, 07:01:53 PM
Due to an extreme lack of confidence in the Bitcoin Foundation, now is the time for it to disband and reform.  It is absolution clear that without a reset, there is no hope for restoring faith to this organization. 

Both Antonopolis and Andresen stay.  All others go. Andreas and Gavin must decide how to bring about a new organization which is not corrupt and effectively moves bitcoin forward.

I call on all members of the present board to dismiss themselves and allow a new entity to come forth without resistance and fighting.  It is the right thing to do.  If the present directors ever had any genuine concern for bitcoin, they should do this without further delay.  Continued resistance indicates further corruption - as those who want to cling to their seats are merely looking out for themselves rather than bitcoin as a whole. 

48  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Support Bitcoin - Support favorable politicians on: May 22, 2014, 12:32:26 AM
Guys, this is the only bitcoin donation which is interesting.  Don't waste bitcoins on dumbass things.  Instead, support election of politicians who will support bitcoin.  http://www.coindesk.com/meet-the-us-political-candidates-who-are-embracing-bitcoin/  Please go to that site and donate a few bits to everyone.  Even if the amount is tiny, it is a HUGE statement.

49  Other / Meta / Bitcoin 2.0 on: March 26, 2014, 09:55:32 AM
Why is bitcoin talk - openly hostile towards bitcoin 2.0.  These are not 'alt coins'.  Yet, the admin here insists on shoving these topics to hell.  Advanced bitcoin features and uses effect the entire bitcoin community and bitcoin core.  Yet, the admin here just goes bizerk at the mere mention of things like colored coins.  WTF?  These are very interesting bitcoin technologies you are suppressing.  Stupid.
50  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Bitcoin 2.0 - being shut down by Bitcoin 1.0 core devs? on: March 26, 2014, 07:41:14 AM
Several interesting projects promise to bring remarkable new function to bitcoin - Bitcoin 2.0*.  Really cool stuff.  However, in the interests of 'stability', it seems that Bitcoin core devs are openly hostile towards these developments. While everyone appreciates the complexities of dealing with blockchain 'bloat', is it the correct strategy to simply hinder all sexy new ideas which are coming down the pipeline?  Is that really good for bitcoin?  If we ignore, or worse hinder all the new innovations which could come to the remarkable impenetrable ledger than bitcoin provides, then don't we relegate it to mediocrity or even failure? 

Ethereum saw this from a mile away.  They what to initiate their own blockchain to be free of the limits and encumbrances (including the cores devs) on the present blockchain.  Ethereum may become the cryptocurrency that bitcoin should have been.  Very serious efforts are being put forth to make exciting new function attach to the bitcoin blockchain. Now, the core dev team(s) seems to be thwarting those efforts.  Can this really be good for Bitcoin?

51  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Insane! bitcoin rules eBay on: February 27, 2014, 07:01:54 PM
Check out this guy selling a sweet Mercedes on eBay for bitcoin!  I think bitcoin is starting to hit the mainstream.  Have you guys seen other stuff on eBay?  I thought they were trying to ban sales in bitcoin.

52  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / German Bundesbank thinks bitcoin is 'highly speculative' - lololol! on: January 07, 2014, 06:39:52 PM
"The Bundesbank has become the latest big central bank to warn about the risks of Bitcoin, amid rising concerns from regulatory authorities around the world as the virtual currency grows in popularity.

Carl-Ludwig Thiele, a board member of Germany’s central bank, told the newspaper Handelsblatt that Bitcoins were “highly speculative” due to their high volatility and the way they were constructed."    http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/3b67e982-7799-11e3-807e-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2pjqwbs8X

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Grin

Oh no!  Banks don't like bitcoin.  'It is too speculative!'  Warning!!!   (P.S. - do you really think he has any idea whatsoever as to 'how they were constructed'?  Sure.......)

This coming from the guys who charge 70 Euros for simple international cross currency transactions.  They don't want people to use bitcoin - 'too risky'.  

Dealing with old fashion banks is too risky.  Paying 70 euro for international transaction fees is too risky.  Suffering endless dilution of my wealth via inflation is too risky.

Yeah, right.  Bitcoin is 'highly speculative'.  Here let me speculate something for you Mr. Central Banker Carl-Ludwig Thiele.  I speculate that you will soon be out of a job.  I speculate that bitcoin will severely cripple the banking industry in less than 3 years.  Get your resume out Mr. Central Banker.  You are going to be looking for a new job soon.  

How do you like that speculation? - asshole.
53  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / 'Mastercoin is a joke' on: November 29, 2013, 11:58:26 PM
What the fuck is wrong with those guys at Colored coin?  Is their project failing so badly that they need to sling mud into our project?  Wow - I didn't expect that.  They must be hurting.
54  Other / Meta / Forums FUBAR on: November 29, 2013, 03:14:36 PM
Oh why, oh why did Theymos f-up the forums?  Mastercoin is not an altcoin.  Now, our crap is buried in all the nonsense of the altfreaks with their scams and constant announcements of free coins.  What a nightmare. 
55  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Mastercoin - what is that? on: November 17, 2013, 06:50:04 PM
My friend told me about something he said is 'Bitcoin/Mastercoin'.  Where can I find out more about that? I don't see it on these threads here.
