Are Bitcoinica's coins still tied up in the Mt Gox fiasco?


Yes.   Angry

I do know Jujitsu.  I'm a Brazilian Jujitsu brown belt with more than a decade of experience.
I also have several years of wrestling experience as well.

Here is why I think BCH is Bitcoin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vufeM92bfJw

I gave clear and consise reasons why I think that is the case.  Feel free to refute them with logic and evidence.

To all the newbies posting in this thread,  IT IS FROM 2012!!!!!
Don't post here unless you know the details and history of what went on, so that those of us who actually care about the Bitcoinica debacle can keep up with the thread.

Thank you for not posting additional fluff in this thread!

Where exactly are you people getting confused?
Or are you just causing trouble for trouble's sake?

6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is there evidence that Roger Ver spammed the BTC Network? on: November 16, 2017, 04:48:42 AM
There is no evidence of this whatsoever because I've never done anything of the sort, and I've never paid anyone to do anything of the sort.

********************* Sept 2017 Update *********************
We are now offering a $1,000 bounty for the world's first Bitcoin Cash Billboard.
Details here: https://forum.bitcoin.com/topic149.html#p100058


Well,  the "Dollar is Exit Only" billboard has been online for the last 2 years or so. 
It is starting to look a bit sun damaged and faded,  so I think it is time for the next one.





Who has a good design idea?

One idea that comes to my mind is:

FREE CASH!
(Bitcoin Cash)
Bitcoin.com

It also might be fun to point out that Bitcoin.org is rotten to the Core, and engages in censorship in "support" of censorship free money.  All in all, I suppose we should just focus on how awesome Bitcoin Cash is.


I'll pay $1,000 in Bitcoin Cash to whoever comes up with the design we actually use.
Please post your submissions at https://forum.bitcoin.com/topic149.html#p100058.

I've never paid any sort of social media company to astroturf anything, ever.

The person who initially made this claim has since retracted it and apologized as well.

This whole thread is nonsense.

Loaded still never replied to me at all despite my contacting him numerous times.  That shows his intentions were dishonest from day one.

i don´t get the part where theymos gets bashed because loaded did not contact you. are they one person?

I don't like Theymos because of his censorhip, manipulation and lies:  https://medium.com/@johnblocke/a-brief-and-incomplete-history-of-censorship-in-r-bitcoin-c85a290fe43
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: @RogerVer lets make a deal. At least 60k, my BTU for your BTC. on: July 28, 2017, 05:25:10 PM
I'm also bumping this to call Loaded the lying scumbag that he is.
I contacted him multiple times,  provided him with all of my personal contact details including personal cell phone number so we could move ahead, and he never contacted me, and never even logged into the forum again.
I'm sick of the dishonest lying, cheating, and censorship tactics being employed by some (not all) of the Blockstream supporters.
It is disgusting, and you should be ashamed of yourselves.  (Especially Theymos)

Please add Pool.Bitcoin.com to the list of pools.


We are enabling Bitcoin Cash mining because we have sold millions of dollars worth of hash rate to our customers.
That hash rate belongs to them,  not us.  Since so many of them have asked to be able to mine Bitcoin Cash with their hash rate,  we will let them do what they want with their own property.  Bitcoin.com as an entity intends to follow through with the Segwit2X agreement.
Per our announcement, if the 2X part of that agreement does not come in time,  we will be putting all of our efforts behind the chain that is most inline with the bitcoin outlined in the Satoshi White Paper. Currently that seems to be Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Unlimited, and Bitcoin Classic.

Very interesting comments from you. Thanks for the input.

So you said you spent every penny you had buying up bitcoin in 2011. They might be around 333 bitcoin per $100 back then (give or take a few), so how many do you still hold and how many was the maximum you held before you (or if you) sold them?
Thanks for the civil reply! That is how adults should act on the internet.   To answer your questions, the number of Bitcoins I own is private,  but the MTGOX logs were leaked at some point and my entire transaction history with that exchange leaked along with it.  It showed that I only bought, never sold, and that went on for years.  My first wire to Mtgox was for $25K when they were less than $1 each.  Unfortunately Mtgox didn't credit my wire until they were over $1 each.  I suspect they actually front ran my order.   Maybe someone else can dig up the rest of those logs.   I still own millions of dollars worth of Bitcoin today. Far far more than all of my alt coin holdings combined.  That alone should be proof that I'm doing exactly what I think is best for the future of Bitcoin. This is unlike most of the core and small block supporters who came to bitcoin much later,  and don't understand the characteristics that made bitcoin come to be used as money.
By their own admission,  most of them hardly use Bitcoin at all.

So much FUD in one post!
Roger Ver at some point will probably be arrested and thrown into prison for tax evasion.  If it is true he has 300,000 Bitcoins then he's on the hook for some $120+ million in back taxes to the IRS and penalties / interest from when he left USA in 2014.  I'm not sure about the IRS penalties but they could very well seize everything he owns due to the obvious massive conspiracy to commit tax fraud.  The token amount he gave them years ago was nowhere close to his owed amount.
Have you seen my tax returns? I spent close to $1M USD just on lawyers and tax accountants alone to help me file everything exactly perfectly.
I've paid the IRS millions upon millions of dollars and I've never had a "tax problem" with the IRS ever, despite having been audited numerous times.

Actually this is also the guy who is also a convicted terrorist too, for mailing explosives in the mail.  So it's practically a step backwards to commit something petty (by comparison to terrorism) like tax fraud.
My crime was "Dealing in Explosives WITHOUT A LICENSE".  I sold store bought fire crackers on ebay,  and my crime was doing it without the right government paperwork.  It was a politically motivated prosecution. Even while I was in prison,  the company I bought the fireworks from, and the manufacturer  were still selling them without a license.  Details here.
 

Surprised Japan let him in and the various agencies aren't bothering him yet.   I guess Roger Ver avoiding drugs has kept him out of the spotlight or maybe he's giving people envelopes full of cash?
Maybe it is because Japan is a freer country than the USA,  and every convenience store in the country sells fireworks in the summer time.  Try finding that in the land of the free.

But arguably Roger Ver's rambling and trying to assert an authority image has hurt Bitcoin more than help it (especially the white legal side.  The criminal black side probably loves Roger Ver's libertarian rambles).
I've arguably done more to help the legal side of Bitcoin adoption than anyone else in the world.  Go and read this book for the details. Calling my thoughts "libertarian rambles" doesn't make them any less true.  Taxation is theft.  The draft is kidnapping and slavery.  War is mass murder funded by theft.  I refuse to condone any of those things.

Stop and think for a moment.
If I own a large number of Bitcoins, and Bitcoin.com,  that means I'm financially motivated to do everything I can to improve the value of those assets.
This is unlike Adam Back, the CEO of Blockstream, who by his own admission, and despite having known about Bitcoin for about 5 years due to being contacted by Satoshi himself in 2008, he didn't own a single Bitcoin himself in April of 2013.  I doubt he has many bitcoins now either.

Compare that with someone like myself who spent nearly every penny I had buying Bitcoin as soon as I learned about them in 2011.
Adam Back can run circles around me when it comes to the underlying mathematics of Bitcoin,  but he has demonstrated by his own actions that he has absolutely no clue why Bitcoin came to be used as money, and to this day he still doesn't understand why Bitcoin is money. Sadly, his firm has done an incredible amount of harm to Bitcoin's adoption rate and has caused Bitcoin's market share to plummet from around 90% to less than 50% today.

Bitcoin is the only coin in the world to ever have had full blocks.
If we want to experiment with the effects of full blocks on a system,  it is incredibly reckless to do it on Bitcoin, yet that is exactly what Adam and his ilk have done.  If we want to experiment with full blocks, do it on an alt coin!

Bitbet.us is down again, and this time it looks like it is down for good.
I thought this site was very interesting so I have hired a developer to create a similar one hosted by Bitcoin.com
I would love some feedback from the community on what features you would like it to have.
The developer has started a thread about it here: https://forum.bitcoin.com/topic32927.html
Please post your feature requests there, and we will build it.

Such memories.... If I recall correctly I think the amount of the theft was about $2000 total at the time...

As of this moment,  Loaded still has not contacted in any way despite my asking him to, and providing all of my personal contact details.
I think it is fair to say that Loaded has backed out,  or never had any intention of going through with the deal in the first place. 

Meanwhile, Greg Maxwell and others are going around spreading the lie that I've backed out of this deal.

Loaded, I'm still waiting to hear from you!
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Roger Ver has been compromised on: April 17, 2017, 03:02:18 AM
Roger Ver wanting nodes to be centralized & easier to control what people should expect him to say.

Roger Ver is against bitcoin being decentralized.

Everything about him is the inverse opposite of what bitcoin was designed to be.

Wow, you got every single point wrong.

1. I want Bitcoin to be uncontrollable p2p cash as described in Satoshi's white-paper.  (Not just a settlement layer)

2. Decentralization is the tool Bitcoin uses to achieve its censorship resistance.

3. Read the white-paper and you will see that unlike Blockstream and Core,  I'm advocating for the very thing that Bitcoin was designed to be from day one.
