3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The Welcome Wagon on: December 10, 2015, 12:56:26 AM
This thread is a simple one. The bitcoin community welcomes all newcomers (minus paid fud trolls).
When you first step into the bitcoin realm it can be intimidating... please consider that this is a family of geeks and investors... not always of mindset of keeping it simple... yet the bitcoin train is one crazy and exciting ride... don't give up.
One thing you will learn is that there are always folks willing to help you understand and you should not be embarrassed to ELI5 (explain like I'm 5).
Seriously, this is a completely addictive hobby that has far reaching financial impact personally & globally... the more you learn the more you want to be involved in this disruptive revolution... we were all nubes at one time. Hopefully our long term brainiacs can realize the importance of adoption and tone down the elitist attitude.

Sooooo... welcome aboard... jump in... the water is warm... the tide is rising and the surf is incredible!  Cheesy

What got you interested... and how can we help you better understand the real Satoshi's dream... Questions or comments?

It's certainly understandable why there's pushback from the usual financial cronies... and yes they have the highest lobbying group in the world... however, what they don't comprehend is that international interest trumps local regulations... While they could manipulate a delay in progress the truth is that this is what informed people want in their life... the benefits far exceed banking as usual [insert any revolution here]... then they have to fight 1 billion in investments from companies with big pockets.... they are not just going to roll over.
The tipping point of beneficial commerce has been reached beyond the boundaries any one regulating body.... with a global financial crises each country is looking to weather the storm and protect their piece... once the progressive advocates like Canada & UK start to see positive results the dominoes will fall.
I like our growth potential... what do you think?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Where's the Positive News on: November 04, 2015, 12:22:16 AM
It seems that this site has become doom and gloom... is anyone paying attention to China allowing deposits for BTC... or maybe a mention that the price is moving north of $400?
There is so much positive news going on right now  Cheesy

This would be a nice transition to BTC machines... tie all the cards to bitcoin... then eliminate the cards altogether.

9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Gift card on: September 10, 2015, 02:47:08 AM
Was thinking of buying family & friends a gift card for BTC... not looking for GYFT or something to buy other products... just something they can receive in  a card with a wallet.
What's available?

11  Economy / Service Discussion / Purse.io should be the tool to grow interest for now on: August 03, 2015, 01:44:31 AM
Killer app this n that... blah blah... until we can make securing a wallet as simple as tying shoelaces we might consider approaching friends and associates with the idea of large Amazon discounts with purse.
I'm thinking a simple youtube vid or instructions on setting up coinbase or circle (we can expand into offline wallets later)... include how to set up purse account and the "name your discount" feature.... Copying the wishlist etc.
If this is spelled out a-z the whole process should take less than one hour (plus wait time from the bank).
Maybe add the "auto replenish your account" option
I can't think of a better way to pique interest than showing a distinct advantage of their current spending habits (more cash in hand).
Anyone willing to spend the time to create this step by step vid would certainly be compensated by change tip.
Any input would be appreciated... thanks

Five of the world's largest banks have plead guilty to federal charges including manipulating the global foreign exchange market and rigging a benchmark interest rate that affects the cost of credit card, vehicle and other loans.
Citicorp (C), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Barclays (BCS) and Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) agreed to pay more than $5 billion for conspiring to fix the price of U.S. dollars and euros, the Justice Department said Wednesday. The main banking unit of UBS Group plead guilty to charges tied to interest-rate manipulation. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/in-rare-admission-of-guilt-wall-st-banks-admit-they-rigged-markets/

16  Economy / Speculation / The Price Is Right on: April 27, 2015, 02:35:20 AM
In the simplest form how would it be possible for the price not to rise substantially in the next couple of years?
Diminishing supply + growing exposure + exponential investment + trading options = positive price increase.

I'm not sure why anyone would be concerned about investing in the technology... this is a great time to expand the wallet.
How many will be regretful for not taking advantage of early 2015 pricing?

Sources very closed to Greece’s minister of finance told Greek Reporter that today Yanis Varoufakis held a top secret meeting with high-ranking finance ministry officials to prepare them in case negotiations at the upcoming Eurogroup fail. The anonymous source noted that everybody in the room was staring at each other when Varoufakis – also a prominent blogger – said “We ‘ll go to Bitcoin, we will be ahead of all the world economies and although it may be painful in the beginning, Greece’s economy will thrive in the long term.”

19  Bitcoin / Press / 2015-03-10 WSJ - Secretive Bitcoin Startup 21 Reveals Record Funds, Hints at Mas on: March 10, 2015, 02:04:47 PM
Now, that company, which bears the name 21 Inc., is emerging from stealth to announce it has raised $116 million in venture funding, the most ever by a startup in the digital-currency sector, based on data from bitcoin news service Coindesk.

What it’s not yet publicizing is the precise nature of its operations, Chief Executive and co-founder Matthew Pauker will only say there will be “several interesting developments over the next weeks and months” about software and hardware products designed “to drive mainstream adoption of bitcoin.”
