1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin acceptance - write to your energy co. on: April 17, 2014, 02:22:37 PM
With electricity costing so much and being the actual force that creates bitcoin through mining why not write to your electricity supplier and suggest they accept bitcoin as payment.
Any supplier who decided to accept bitcoin would no doubt garner many new customers, especially miners as they would be able to bypass exchanges with their earnings.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / New ransomware CryptoDefense on: April 04, 2014, 12:33:22 PM
This new ransomware is not good news for Bitcoin as it specifically asks for payment in Btc via Tor browser which could obviously give people the impression that Bitcoin is linked to criminals.

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Dorian hires lawyers for BTC denial on: March 17, 2014, 08:44:19 AM
"Dorian S. Nakamoto hires lawyer to 'clear his name' of bitcoin claim"

http://www.latimes.com/business/technology/la-fi-tn-dorian-s-nakamoto-hires-lawyer-to-clear-his-name-of-bitcoin-claim-20140316,0,41210.story

Looks like those bitcoin donations from the community are going into a lawyers pocket unless he manages to get compensation from Newsweek.
In the article he states

"My prospects for gainful employment has been harmed because of Newsweek's article."

I would have thought just the opposite, he's more chance of getting work because of the publicity, anyway good luck to the old guy, I like him.

6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / An Electronic Currency That Could Save The Economy - And It's Not Bitcoin on: November 24, 2013, 02:47:34 PM
Now this guy is talking scary shit but even more scary, will governments think it's maybe a good idea.

"There's An Electronic Currency That Could Save The Economy — And It's Not Bitcoin"

"University of Michigan economist Miles Kimball has developed a theoretical solution  to this problem in the form of an electronic currency that would allow the Fed to bring nominal rates below zero to combat recessions. He's been presenting his plan to different economists and central bankers around the world."

9  Other / Meta / Use of initials in topics on: November 11, 2013, 02:08:52 PM
Having just logged on I see a topic headed

 "How is DPR securing his wallets from the Feds?"

Now I don't know about the rest of you but I don't spend 24 hours a day reading about bitcoin related news and forums and so before I could make any sense of the thread I had to google DPR + "silk road" to find out, the new silk road (SR) owner
 "is fashioning himself as the "Dread Pirate Roberts," a reference to the book and film The Princess Bride, which the owner of the original Silk Road also used."
http://mashable.com/2013/11/06/silk-road-dread-pirate-roberts/ (top google result).

Please spare a thought for new forum users and users like myself who only visit every couple of days by giving us a clue as what the initials mean eg Bitcoin Foundation (BF) as i did earlier (SR) somewhere in the beginning of posts.

It gives us idiots more time to read and digest posts.
