1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The Bitcoin Charity Experiment on: January 08, 2014, 07:58:58 PM
A lot of people don't like to give money to charity, because they don't feel that they get much in return. But at the same time they might gamble away money, even though they know that there is a very small chance they will profit from it. So what about turning charity into a game, where you can win money? I don't know if it will work in practice, so this thread is an experiment to find out if it works.

The Charity Experiment
Follow the experiment here: https://blockchain.info/address/16DWTDE2W7PN6cEXHBhyQ1WSuesCvKwuyq

How to participate:
1) Send 1 mBTC to this address: 16DWTDE2W7PN6cEXHBhyQ1WSuesCvKwuyq
2) Add a note that says which charity the money should go to

The experiment ends when there has been no new payments for 24 hours.

The last person to send 1 mBTC is the winner. He gets 50% of the accumulated money, and he gets to decide what charity gets the rest.


I will start it off by sending 1 mBTC. If no one else participates, it will go to Sean's Outpost.

5  Local / Skandinavisk / E24: "65 prosent av alle 100-dollar sedler befinner seg utenfor USA" on: April 17, 2013, 06:41:07 PM

"Verdien av dollarsedler holdt i utlandet utgjør cirka 450 milliarder dollar, skriver Holberg Fondene. "

Brukere av dollar utenfor USA må vel være potensielle Bitcoin-brukere?

Så et lite tankeeksperiment: Om noen år finnes det 15 millioner Bitcoins. 450 milliarder dollar / 15 millioner BTC = 30'000 $ per BTC
Eller enda lenger fram i tid: 450 mrd $ / 21 mill BTC = 21'428 $ per BTC.
