Thank you for paying out on my Trump election bet wins a few days back.  Consider this a positive review in regard to larger bets being honored (about 25 BTC in my case).

A hack is great publicity around here.  Some enterprising person should come up with some thing that drives the price way up or down(on their exchange), dramatically.  Then, announce how the hacker got no bitcoins and is currently being waterboarded for his impudence.

I've been told getting arrested for undocumented class 3 items (e.g suppressor) has resulted in serious legal problems for people.
Yes, it's total crap, but the govt these days would love to hit someone with a juicy fine or worse.
Don't have direct experience with class 3 myself, but it might not be worth avoiding the paperwork here.

He recommended that I take 10-15% of my total assets and invest them in all available digital currencies.  

Has anyone done this?  Are there other viable digital currencies besides bitcoin?  (Well, I guess there are the alt chains of bitcoin, any others?)

I don't see an option for a chicken or small goat.  Then, I may be a little old fashioned I guess.

10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: [Mt. Gox Court Case] Do you all know who controls the central bank of France? on: October 22, 2011, 10:50:36 PM
True, governments (i.e. Central Banks) do not tolerate competition for what they see as their power.  Money is the primary power mechanism for controlling people.  Real competition for power in the form of gold, bitcoin, or some other currency as money will not be tolerated.  My best case scenario is that bitcoin continues to get bad press articles, while slowly increasing in usage and value under the radar (something like gold is doing now).  Then, longer term, something happens to diminish the monetary control mechanism (like a sovereign debt collapse in the G8 countries) and the governments will not have the power to fight the distributed bitcoin currency.

This guy, Michael Clear, is a little too young to be Satoshi, no?  Just graduating as an undergrad in 2008?  Well, it's possible certainly, but I had thought Satoshi was ~30yo.  Some of Satoshi's forum posts also appear a bit more mature than undergraduate posting, but you never know I guess.
13  Economy / Economics / Utah monetary declaration friendly to bitcoin, possibly more states will follow on: October 02, 2011, 08:01:58 AM
The state of Utah's monetary declaration signed last week (Sept 26th) is primarily considered relevant to gold/silver.
However, look at the wording for point #1 (bolded below); "all people enjoy the inherent and unalienable right to lawfully acquire, hold and use as a medium of exchange whatever form or forms of money they may prefer.."  Utah may be a good state to incorporate bitcoin businesses.

Utah Monetary Declaration

WHEREAS, money, as a medium of exchange, a store of value, and a unit of measure promotes economic activity, growth and productivity by facilitating specialization and trade, the accumulation of wealth and its long-term investment, as well as accountability in setting prices, tracking progress, and settling accounts;

WHEREAS, natural money – precious metal coin – by virtue of its inherent qualities of recognizability, measurability, uniformity, divisibility, durability, portability and scarcity has reliably retained its purchasing power, notwithstanding periodic fluctuations, over the centuries and millennia of human history, serving as an effective medium of exchange and store of value often without any governmental declaration to require, legitimize or perpetuate its adoption and operation as such;

WHEREAS, sound money, by retaining stable purchasing power over time, best serves societal needs by substantially reducing the uncertainty of inflation risk for creditors and deflation risk for debtors as well as encouraging saving and investment among the general populace and benefiting the economic zone in which it circulates by stimulating the economy and by attracting foreign capital and commerce to the region;

WHEREAS, history attests that monopolistic monetary systems frequently engender currency debasement, resulting in serious consequences such as lost purchasing power, inequitable wealth redistributions, misallocation of productive resources, and chronic unemployment, and that, as the cornerstone of a free market and society, the right to choose, whether between suppliers of goods and services, political parties and candidates, or between alternative media of exchange, effectively promotes the general welfare;

WHEREAS, for the equal protection of all people, rich and poor, the open circulation of complementary and competing currencies should be fostered and promoted by every sovereign state, including those of The United States of America pursuant to their monetary powers (expressly reserved in article 1, § 10 and in the 10th amendment of the United States Constitution) to monetize gold and silver coin as an alternative, voluntary medium of exchange, and as an effective check and balance against debasement of the national currency by the national government which is constitutionally precluded from demonetizing state legal tender, through disparate tax treatment, discriminatory regulation, the threat of suppression and seizure, or otherwise;

NOW THEREFORE, we the undersigned hereby declare and affirm that:

1.     As an essential element of true liberty and of the pursuit of happiness in a free society, all people enjoy the inherent and unalienable right to lawfully acquire, hold and use as a medium of exchange whatever form or forms of money they may prefer, including especially gold and silver coin.

2.     All free and sovereign states bear the moral, political and legal obligation not only to refrain from debasing their own currencies (except under the most exigent circumstances) and from erecting barriers to the unfettered circulation of monies issued under the authority of their sovereign trading partners, but also to affirmatively defend and protect against fraud, counterfeiting, uttering, passing off, embezzlement, theft or neglect by requiring full transparency and accountability of all state chartered financial institutions.

3.     No tax liability nor any regulatory scheme promoting one form of money over another should apply to: (a) the holding of any form of money, in a financial institution or otherwise; (b) the exchange of one form of money for any other; or (c) the actual or imputed increase in the purchasing power of one form of money as compared to another.

4.     Except in the case of governmentally assessed taxes, fees, duties, imposts, excises, dues, fines or penalties, the authority of government should never be used to compel payment of any obligation, contract or private debt in any specific form of money inconsistent with the parties’ written, verbal or implied agreement, or to frustrate the intent of contracting parties or impair contractual obligations by invalidating the application of a discount or surcharge agreed to be dependent upon the particular medium of exchange or method of payment employed.

5.     The extent and composition of a person’s monetary holdings, including those on deposit with any financial institution, should not be subject to disclosure, search or seizure except upon adherence to due process safeguards such as requiring an adequate showing of probable cause to support the issuance by a court of competent jurisdiction of a lawful warrant or writ executed by legally authorized law enforcement officers.

We hereby urge business leaders, educators, members of the media, legislators, government officials as well as judicial and law enforcement officers to use their best combined efforts to reinstate and promote the legal and commercial framework necessary to establishing and maintaining well-functioning, sound monetary systems based on choice in currency.

The signatories hereto concur in the general principles expressed in the foregoing declaration notwithstanding specific reservations some may have as to how such principles should be interpreted and applied in practice.

Can they get through the yubikey protection through phishing (i.e. even if I hypothetically foolishly enter my mtgox password)?

Here is a quote from FlipPro in 2013:  "How could I think nobody wanted gold!!"

Also, if you think it's going to be funny when gold crashes, you're gonna really chuckle when the USD crashes.
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: Should we be concerned about the new alternate block chains/cryptocurrencies? on: August 29, 2011, 05:21:48 AM
I'm trying to keep an eye on the solidcoin.  It got a spike of hash recently, but seems to have dropped off lately.  I'm trying to determine if bitcoin's first mover advantage will be enough to make it worth holding on to any bitcoins longer term.

I generally aim for 70* but allow up to 80* before i get worried about anything.
pretty much same here, I aim for 68-70, then 80 gets looked at.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The Bitcoin Show on on: August 27, 2011, 03:23:44 AM
Sure seems like this show is dying.

What happened to twice daily shows every weekday?

What happened to things happening at internet speed?

I've given up watching this show. It seems that the bias is only that bitcoin will go up up up. When in reality the market determines that price. Markets go up and they also come down.

I hope that bitcoins go back up. Very difficulty to ignore all of the let downs as of late from this show.

From the show being off the air for like a week to messages on their live feed saying "bitcoin show 2pm, bitcoin show next, bitcoin show very very soon now, any time now...etc".


You're still waiting for "The Bitcoin Show" episodes?   Bruce is now on episode 5 of "The Solidcoin Show".

ixcoin is dead since it still has Thomas' original stink attached (i.e. premined coins).
