Wrong, I'm conducting a poll well within their guidelines.

Trying to bribe people for upvotes is going to get down-voted into oblivion, if you had even the cursory understanding of the culture of Reddit you'd have known that. Let those of us who are actually Redditors do the submitting...

Don't read the comments on the Yahoo article unless you want to rage so hard. Well... unless you want to play a drinking game where you drink every time some one mentions ponzi, beanie babies, or tulips.

There's a Canadian exchange in Beta testing right now: If you can get your BTC there you can cash them out with e-Interact or a bank transfer.

Schumer mentions Bitcoin specifically in this article:

"To make sure the money exchanged can't be traced, the site uses a new digital currency called Bitcoins that can be purchased online by visitors, according to Schumer. Using real money, users purchase these Bitcoins, which can be traded at roughly $9 to one bitcoin, and use them as proxy for real money when they buy things on Silk Road.

"It's an online form of money laundering used to disguise the source of money, and to disguise who's both selling and buying the drug," said Schumer."

It'd be nice if you went further than the title. Even the abstract would do. No I'm going to keep it because it fits the content and gets more attention Tongue

I won't bother reading anything with such an ignorant title, I doubt the content would be any better informed. Anarchy is defined as the absence of hierarchy and is not at all incompatible with freedom.

I posted an AMA to Reddit, help me hit frontpage?

Should have let us know at /r/Bitcoin, we could have helped upvote it. Next time I guess.

Are you talking about Classical Liberalism or Social liberalism or the Liberal Party?

The whole "government is evil" and "fiat currencies are doomed to fail, hoard gold!" sentiments all over this forum are a real turn off. In America extreme-libertarian views seem to be in fashion, but for the rest of the world those sort of arguments just make you look paranoid and juvenile.

The way I would describe Bitcoin to people is sort of like a Paypal replacement, but one where your account cannot be frozen based on the whims of a computer algorithm, and 'undesirable' customers like Wikileaks cannot be dropped from the system by government pressure. Basically, a secure and fast way to send money between two endpoints on the internet, without needing to have it approved by a third-party. I love that the scarcity (and hence value) of the currency is derived from the laws of mathematics (cryptography in particular), but 99% of people have never heard of Public/Private key cryptography, we probably need a good metaphor to explain that part.

I would say the #1 priority is making Bitcoin easy to set-up and use by merchants, maybe a new YouTube video with that as its major theme. The #2 priority is to make it easy for people to transform dollars into Bitcoins, there needs to be a Dwolla-like method set up in every country in the world, at the moment only Americans can easily get a hold of Bitcoins without mining. The #3 priority is making the client more user-friendly for non-technical people, in particular backing up and securing the Wallet.dat file is essential.

Just my 2 cents.

Hmph, well now that we can't trust this guy anymore, what options do Canadians have to buy/sell bitcoins for dollars?
