Why do people keep saying attack? If bitcoin is attacked by doing what it is meant to do - - - transact - - - then it obviously is not doing it's job very well.

Coinwallet are demonstrating and by real world evidence proving wrong all the 1mbiters who said that we can just hit the limit and all would be dandy. It wouldn't. You'd be waiting in line, pay exorbitant fees, and all of it for the privilege of allowing some retard on dial up to run a node. Super smart.

Nodes seem to be crashing, so much for nothing happens if we hit the limit. Admit it 1mbiters, the crash landing scenario is real...

Obviously this is hardly a scientific poll or in any way indicative, but just curious of the result even if it is gamed.

And, please don't game it Smiley  This is an important issue and everyone has the right to their opinion. We all would benefit by seeing what most people think and the benefits from gaming it would be very much 0.

The 1Fee address is probably an MT Gox address although there is no direct evidence, just circumstantial.

There is evidence that many of the bitcoins in the 16cou address were withdrawn from MT Gox. That address therefore is an MT Gox's customer's address.

It is "backed by", although may not be exchangeable for reddit shares.

I understand there may be legal issues, but I am very curious as to how they can be backed by shares, but not be exchangeable for shares? I am not a legal expert, but I really hope that there is some legal difference between simply giving out shares for free as reddit is doing, and raising capital through issuing shares which is what companies usually do. It may well be the case, and I really hope it is, that you can simply give away shares, where no monetary value is required in return, without crossing any regulatory issues. If so, then reddit would be the very first company to harness the blockchain technology for this purpose which may have huge innovative benefits.

If that isn't possible, then the notes would either have a fixed value being whatever is given out to each user either directly or indirectly, thus making the whole process perhaps unnecessary, or it would be like any other "coin" without much difference, but the fact that reddit issued them.

So, I think everyone is excited to see if you guys can pull this off and be the first to use the blockchain to issue a backed floating asset, or whether we will be completely disappointed and have just another "coin" (I know it won't be an altcoin I am just using coin as a shortcut word).

No Pressure Smiley and thank you for keeping us updated and engaging with the reddit and cryptocurrency community.

BTC finds itself at a crossroad. As signs of mainstream consciousness of bitcoin increase, there seems to be a movement to marginalise libertarians and other more "extreme" beliefs in favour of a toned down more business like approach. It feels like everyone is starting to dress on their sunday best and focus completely on how it is cheaper, more private etc. I have no opinion on it except to think that some balance is needed.

Theres a subtle evolution going on, which you are probably well too aware, between those who want more anonymity and those who wish to appease, between those who are willing to give up even the most core characteristic of bitcoin (decentralisation), either through encouraging mining centralisation or in other ways, for more features or to make it more user friendly and between those who view that line as uncrossable. On the one had we have many "trolls" who kindly take to the community by addressing it as a cult, or delusional, or batshit crazy, and on the other there are many who work on the premise that if you build it they will come.

The fate of bitcoin is decided everyday, but it does feel like bitcoin stands at a crossroad of four paths. The one many hope for is very light regulation, maintenance of decentralisation while making it much more user friendly. It may well be the case that a second path of heavy regulation is more likely together with perhaps some centralisation. If we are unlucky, the libertarian bent is completely erased and heavy centralisation is allowed, albeit covertly. Worst of all, as price has continued to go down for a year now, the will of everyone is being tested. It does not help that, unfortunately, almost six years on, many bitcoin companies are still run by amateurs who fail to take basic precautions with their security.  A fourth path might be taken therefore whereby the price continues downwards followed by a gradual loss of interest to oblivion.

Which road will she take? Tunein in 2020 to find out more.

Maybe, on the other hand, the hackers are trying to get Satoshi to seek safety in publicity and reveal himself after getting lucky with some scriptkidy and knowing nothing about his IP etc.

13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: is compromised on: September 08, 2014, 10:54:09 PM
This is big news

Not really. This is very likely just a single troll. He probably got the idea of using to post to from my post here. The dox stuff is probably fake.

I for one am disappointed in the level of trolling displayed here. He could have done something amazing and hilarious with Satoshi's email address, but instead he made a couple of lame jokes, and now everyone knows that the email address is compromised.

I am not so sure. He could have made tons of money by having access to that account, but instead has chosen to post those two messages which kind of sound like a warning?
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: is compromised on: September 08, 2014, 09:49:25 PM
Have you replied has he sent any more emails when did he send it?
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: is compromised on: September 08, 2014, 09:22:53 PM
Well, what did the email say?

It's bitstamp's coins. They come from this address and as can be seen some transactions are withdrawals to bitstamp's audit.
