701  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitbill Patent Published - Encompasses Physical Bitcoins and Paper Wallets on: July 01, 2013, 05:45:15 AM
Bills sold that include a private key are potentially fraudulent and should not be taken seriously as financial documents. They make great collectibles, but unless they are bonded and insured, there is nothing preventing the creator from absconding with them. This patent appears to be an attempt to legitimize fraud by promoting it as a patented instrument.

This just gets my goat because it goes against the spirit of Bitcoin and gives us a bad name. Part of me hopes that FinCEN "regulates" any patent holder like this that attempts to profit.

Bitcoin is a math problem. Every math textbook with quizzes and answers is now in violation of this patent. Don't tell Texas, they are looking for an excuse to ban them.

He's an admin in the trollbox.

They never were in any kind of sync. Do you have charts to show such a pattern?

Although you have to read into it. I would say this looks pretty constant around 0.025 for the past three months. If you believe ltc will fall soon then the pattern will continue.

Bitcoin has many noteworthy stories to drive speculation. Litecoin has mtgox. We'll see how that works out for it.

More likely there will be Open Transaction or colored coin - Bitcoin hybrid derivatives.

Generally speaking, capital is used to describe financial assets, while capitol is used to denote the seat of government.

I flushed all of my bitcoins down the toilet.
That would be a great hiding place. If I did that I would have to make sure the honey wagon doesn't suck them up.

We are definitely in a capitulation cycle. It won't last long because Bitcoin is getting strong and will not be ignored. Bitcoin needs to ROAR!!!
710  Other / Off-topic / Re: What is the capital of AMERICA? on: June 29, 2013, 09:38:33 PM
That would be the dollar and soon Bitcoin
711  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: same public key on: June 29, 2013, 09:18:34 PM
It would be much easier to crack that SHA256 address. The solution to both is to not keep all your coins in one address.

Im truly sorry for all Americans and all the spying and regulating they have to endure.

As long as we can still go to Starbucks and get a Grande Latte with the little college Mary Moon were tutoring and screwing after class - it's all good.
You can get a Starbucks in almost every country and Mary has probably been to most of them.
713  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: namecoin strange = 0 confirmations = two month ago, and still unconfirmed ? on: June 29, 2013, 04:26:58 AM
I'm using using namecoin-QT 0.3.64 with normal confirmations.
714  Economy / Economics / Re: Why is bitcoin price not going up? on: June 29, 2013, 03:59:02 AM
BitInstant allows larger USD withdrawals. I suspect some folks are dumping some bitcoins that have been tied up at Gox. It should correct upward again soon.
715  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: [ANN] XRP Launch on: June 28, 2013, 11:38:14 PM
I have not said XRP is a scam, also I have some XRP, but,  I never had it free had to buy it!!!

Maybe you can help me with this property I need to dump. I mean, how many bridges does a guy need anyway?

Seriously? I thought only certain banking VCs bought Ripple because they hate poor people.
716  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: [XPM] [ANN] Primecoin Prerelease Announcement - Introducing Prime Proof-of-Work on: June 28, 2013, 11:21:26 PM
  • Pure proof-of-work, no proof-of-stake (unlike ppcoin), not energy efficient, but with additional potential scientific value derived from proof-of-work energy consumption (energy multiuse)

What kind of scientific value?
717  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: 10,000 free IFC (Infinite Coin) on: June 28, 2013, 11:13:26 PM
everyone up to here should have their coins  Grin
I didn't post an address yet because I'm waiting for an infinite number to be given away.

There is not much of an explanation here.

How is this going to make Bitcoin "the fastest and most powerful financial network anywhere"?

Let's all play Satoshi Dice for literally Satoshis. The network should be able to handle many thousands of micro-transactions per second and match any payment system out there. Sure it won't be large amounts yet because Bitcoin is not fully capitallized yet, but lets see anyone else able to handle many thousands of µTRX/s globally, instantly, and anonymously.
