The general rule is that if you can connect to a valid node on the Bitcoin network, then you can use Bitcoin. Of course the speed of light would be a factor if and when astronauts start moving away from Earth orbit, but I've been hearing that it may be possible to "make upgrades" to get around this problem.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If Satoshi reveals himself, what would be of Bitcoin? on: May 09, 2017, 10:32:51 PM
One thing that would be interesting (just as a thought experiment) would be for Satoshi to make a move that basically says, "Don't. Mess. With Bitcoin." Something that would REALLY get attention. I suppose it's too much to assume that Satoshi still has access to his/her/their original private keys?

If Satoshi Nakamoto's identity is ever to be revealed, it would be a good thing if he/she/they were to control the circumstances in which it is revealed, in any case. That way Satoshi Nakamoto at least has some control over what happens.

I've dabbled and scored sales here and there. Mostly through my blog. Sure would like to see more affiliate programs that pay out in Bitcoin other than faucets and gambling sites. (Maybe I haven't looked hard enough but there doesn't seem to be much.)
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What to do with the people who don't like Bitcoin? on: April 26, 2017, 07:15:12 PM
I'd be inclined to take the Socratic method: "Why don't you like Bitcoin? Where did you hear that Bitcoin users have been doing X, Y and Z? What makes you think that banks (or Paypal or Western Union) are better? If you found evidence to the contrary, would you change your mind?"

-Alts can be optimized for small transactions in ways that Bitcoin just isn't.

-Alts will give cryptocurrency users something to jump to if they become spooked by possible rifts in the Bitcoin community or world events that might negatively affect Bitcoin and want to "jump ship" away from Bitcoin.

-Alts might have features that are useful for the future of economics. (Basic economic rules apply, but the playing field can change.)
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How to make governments accept bitcoin? on: April 17, 2017, 01:37:42 PM
Right now, I'd say use Bitcoin for everything but "government transactions" (i.e. taxes and DMV-whatevers) whenever possible, even if it means buying gift cards on one of those sites that sell e-gift cards for Bitcoin. Force the issue by proving to the government that Bitcoin will be normalized with or without their "help" or objections.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Roger Ver has been compromised on: April 15, 2017, 11:01:56 PM
I do not remember who is Roger Ver, wasn't he someone important here, in term of developpment at least ? Or wasn't he the Bitcoin Unlimited guy ? In case this fool is him, you should not wait anything intelligent coming from him.

What I've heard about him is that he's been involved in some shady stuff (if I recall, he was convicted of selling explosives on eBay; probably fireworks of some sort if I remember right). And then he helped promote Bitcoin, moved out of the U.S., and gave up his U.S. citizenship. From the sound of things, he doesn't get along well with the U.S. authorities.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Do you see alts have chances against Bitcoins? on: April 15, 2017, 10:57:45 PM
At this point, I'd definitely say diversify your cryptocurrency holdings and keep your fingers crossed. Bitcoin may stay on top, but that's not guaranteed and the current network congestion plus all this infighting over Bitcoin Core, SegWit and the latest thing that Roger Ver said is definitely not helping.

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Acronis Introduces New Services That Includes Blockchain-Based Notary on: January 28, 2017, 09:27:13 PM
Quote
Acronis has recognized the importance of maintaining the integrity of data by integrating new technologies like the Blockchain into its new notary service. This delivers ‘tamper-proof’ data storage that leverages Blockchain functionality to ensure data authenticity, privacy and control. Acronis will apply Blockchain technology to its solutions, which provides a record of digital events distributed across different participants or entities, and opens up a broad range of new data protection use cases for businesses worldwide. With this new Blockchain application, data and transactions can only be updated by rules of consensus between participants in the system, and when new data is entered, it can never be erased. Acronis solutions leveraging Blockchain technology are scheduled to be available in October. An online demo is available so that potential customers can see how this works.

This is for a personal writing project I'm working on. I imagine that Bitcoin would be good for things like teaching things like math with decimals ("How many Satoshis do you need to get a tenth of a Bitcoin?", stuff like that), budgeting (Spend it on whatever you want, but when it's gone, it's gone), or even a little bit of IT / programming stuff like how cryptography works. What do you guys think of this?
the goal in class is to teach something. if it is math, then you should teach math. if i count with apples or satoshis is not important, but the focus should be on learning math not on learning bitcoin.

That makes sense, but you'd be surprised by how literal kids can be when they're trying to learn decimals. That apple isn't one tenth of anything other than a box of ten apples. It's one apple. You don't necessarily have to explain much more about Bitcoin than what a Satoshi is, and maybe how to obtain some Bitcoin, for our purposes.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How to explain bitcoin to teenagers or children on: January 08, 2017, 04:34:43 PM
I think it would be better if we just let children enjoy their lives. Since they are still dependent on their parents, they don't need to learn bitcoin ASAP and as technology advances and bitcoin grows, I think they'll know about it at the right time. In regards with teenagers, mostly they are into web browsing, side job hunting and tech exploring that's why it might be easier for them to learn about bitcoin with just little supervision. Just teach them the basics, how bitcoin works and what can we do with it, as long as they get interested into it, they will make a way to learn more about it.

They will have to learn life skills like budgeting, though. Bitcoin is a good way to teach them the concept of, "You have X amount of value tokens, and when it's gone, it's gone." Or would you rather cripple them in life by teaching them that they might not always be able to buy the most expensive Lego set in the store no matter how badly they want it?

15  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: can i start mining on my laptop ? on: January 04, 2017, 06:25:17 PM
It's technically possible to do so, but you won't get anything out of it and you'll just end up burning the laptop up. Though I have had some luck mining some minor cryptocurrencies with one of the more capable laptops...
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Feedback wanted for future Bitcoin and Blockchain ebook. on: December 31, 2016, 05:47:41 PM
Working title is "Blockchain Space: How And Why Cryptocurrencies Fit Into The Space Age." I'm almost ready to get this published as an ebook, but before I do, I'd like to see if anyone spots any place where I'm being clear as mud. Thanks in advance. Smiley

Meh -- I just laugh at them and maybe use it to buy another gift card if I even feel the need to "get rid of" my Bitcoin at all.

Sounds to me like you already have a decent one -- "Aggressive Mouse Services." How about you use the acronym, AMS? If you want something roughly blacksmith themed, though, you might try "Swordmaker" or "Shieldmaker."
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: People hate Bitcoins? on: July 23, 2016, 01:35:22 AM
My personal opinion is that anyone who hates Bitcoin doesn't really understand it or they're jealous of the early adopters who got rich while playing with this funny Internet money thing. It would be easy to say to just ignore them, but then we'd be taking the chance that they have influence with government policy makers.
