This is what Libertarians dream of. No central controls of price. Let Bitcoin die and something better and stronger take its place.

(2)  Can a user capture a transaction and sent the transaction via a different means (i.e. email or http) and have the transaction activated (or submitted) on the bitcoin network at a later time?
If the point is to delay the payment such as sending cash through the postal service, then a multisig transaction would serve that purpose.

Bitcoin is not a private enterprise. It is a movement of, by, and for the People. Why is government afraid of it? We need help getting this technology out there to improve the world. It would at least make sense for governments to spend some of that "Black Money" to support development. Even if all they do is work on creating analytics and crime-fighting systems it would help to improve the economies of Main St. where the banks are not helping. Bitcoin is an amazing technology and all I hear from goverment officials is FUD.

Let the libertarian flames begin.

Are you looking to create a new market of goods and services or facilitate a Bitcoin economy?

If you can lock them into things like multisig escrows and merge them into Open Transactions, you will have viable derivatives.

You mean using an escrow service to distribute the coins? wow, thanks. I'll look around for a trustworthy guy, any suggestions?

the part i don't get is the merging into Open transactions.
he's basically talking about Nashx - and Nash equilibrium , but he probably/maybe doesn't realize it .

merge into open transaction i'd say just means - "automate the process and make it seamless"

I brought it up in Netcoin - but the Nashx guy done it first - , but i don't think it needs to be done ?

if Ant goes to Cryptsy Ant is being exchanged so the value of the derivative is being exchanged .

he is talking about a P2P exchange .
I wasn't aware of Nashx or Netcoin, but yes a Nash equilibrium. I would use interconnected nested multisignature transactions based on coin age and/or WoT.

What kind of legal exposure would a patent holder have for Bitbills that are used for illegal activities?

Haha - great idea - forward on the patent application to the NSA (although probably not necessary as they would already know about it) and to FinCEN and let them reap the benefits!

This will take the cross-hairs off of Satoshi since this is someone claiming to own a major part of the idea of Bitcoin.

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

Capital can also refer to an uppercase letter, so "A" would also be an acceptable answer.

Posting a non-sequitur is a capital idea.

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.

716  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: [It is official] The price of LTC is no longer following BTC! on: July 01, 2013, 02:42:41 AM
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.

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.
