We are going to correct soon, imo. This is unsustainable. Unless masses of new fiat hit the exchanges tomorrow, there is going to be a snapback. If we blow through ATHs like butter, I will be as shocked as anyone.

Unless there is a legitimate reason for this climb besides panic buying, I agree.

Zynga is a legitimate reason enough.

Jan is going to look like November

nup ... it's going to look like nothing you ever even come close to dreaming of ... unless some more BTC shows up from somewhere ... i'm smelling seller strike and buyer panic on the wind!

"Cashing out" is a relative term ... for those of us who felt imprisoned by the fiat monetary system, buying BTC was our "cashing out" moment.

P.S. ... are you, btw, the good Sir Richard?

I'm not good. I will take your bitcoin and your fiat  Grin

So what's the deal with these space planes ... when can I get from Auckland to London in an hour in one of these rocket-fueled tubes and how much will it cost?

3852 pages of people telling you how to lose all your bitcoin by trading.

Well done, you got me!


To be fair, many of us did tell you all to HODL!


Honestly just hold everything you can, who needs to gamble? 5,000% yearly returns should be good enough.

It's 0% return if you don't cash out.
That's the beauty of bitcoin. It's a self stabilizing system until more than 10% decide to cash out.

Is there an ATM in the USA ... I dont think so ... there 2-3 in Canada.

Maybe the USA is twisting the Taiwanese arm on this one (never dare to do that with Canada Wink)?

Definitely! next one should be pink.

His and hers lambo's, seems only fitting.


She got a pink convertible for Christmas Smiley   (not Lambo)

How are your taxes? At this moment, thats the main thing keeping me from splurging on something big.

Move somewhere without capital gains ... Switzerland, New Zealand, Germany (hodl for 1 year) plus others ...

Americans have to pay taxes on their money even if they live and work outside of the USA.

Americans who have never even been to America still have to these taxes.

Sounds pretty fucked up ... who voted for that, the commies?

Of course, just need to know that this possible...

Now another question. Is it possible to use OT server as a core server (through API?) with mtGox like interface for customers, until moneychanger is realeased or just for those customers who don't want to download it?
You'd have to write all that code yourself, AFAIK.

There are also some example simple web client wallet projects ... but nothing fully polished yet.

historians that study the dotcom bubble "new economy" of the beginning of the millenium might come to the conclusion that the euphoria back then was unsustained because a technology like the bitcoin protocol was not available.

now we are talking about "new economy" for real. 


bitcoin .... because this time it really is different .... lol
1092  Economy / Speculation / Re: Gold collapsing. Bitcoin UP. on: January 05, 2014, 08:12:00 PM
Global qty of gold in the world ~ 30,562,500 kg
Global qty of BTC in the world ~ 21,000,000

So 1kg ~ 1 BTC makes some sense. Even 1.455 kg/BTC  Smiley



That would put the market capital of bitcoins and gold at equal levels, but I do not see any reason they would need to be equal? Once the powers that be and every body else in the world realizes the advantages bitcoins offer over gold, we could see bitcoin replace the market capital of gold. Someday you might be able to buy 100 kg of gold for a bitcoin, and the only people who do that are going to be jewelry makers and electronics makers.

... it has been mentioned before somewhere that "gold silver shall be cast into the streets" ... ah yes here it is

Quote
These caves and rocks of the mountains will not furnish the desired protection from the wrath of this “evil day,” when the great waves of popular discontent are lashing and foaming against the mountains (kingdoms—Rev. 6:15-17; Psa. 46:3); and the time will come when men “shall cast their silver into the streets, and their gold shall be as though it were unclean [margin]: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord.

Also the features that OT receipts provide which your customers will like probably aren't legal to give them when you're issuing receipts for USD.
Meaning you'd need money transmitter licensing for every State (in which you have customers)?

Only for US-based customers ... the servers can be operated in any jurisdiction at all, or in the cloud with multiple parallel instances making it impossible to know which server is performing the notary function. The issuers could also be based in any jurisdiction, or perhaps even as pseudoonymous entity operating on anonymous network like Tor, I2P, Freenet, etc.

Ever since President Nixon broke the US dollar's last link to gold, the world has been set adrift on a sea of fiat currencies that have been increasingly debased, serving the interests of governments and financial elites. For the last five years, central banks have imposed near-zero rates of interest that have helped push up stock, bond, and real estate prices, but have made it nearly impossible for savers to receive meaningful returns on bank deposits.

To make matters worse, the apparatus of national security has turned financial transactions into a massive exercise in government surveillance. Under the camouflage of 'protective' measures, such as the USA PATRIOT Act, governments have invaded the privacy of citizens and compromised banking secrecy in an unprecedented and often unconstitutional manner. Despite huge potential transaction-cost reductions achievable through advances in digital technology, banks continue to charge exorbitant transaction fees while maintaining transfer delays that reflect a pre-digital age. In addition, bank regulators, led by the IMF, have shown a willingness, in the case of Cyprus, to make depositors liable for poor banking decisions. Many private citizens may naturally see the status quo as a deliberate policy to crush middle-class savers and pave the way for centralized socialism. Some have sought a way out.

Gold 2.0?

Traditionally, investors have turned to precious metals such as gold to help protect and privately transfer their wealth. However, ever-increasing regulation, monitoring, and physical searches have eroded some of the key protections afforded by gold. Gold's weakness over the past 24 months has also spooked many former adherents. In such an environment, many have seen the recent arrival of digital crypto-currencies as the means to restore the monetary independence that has been co-opted by big governments. Currencies like the now-famous Bitcoin offer the potential for a store of value, low transaction costs, free movement, and anonymity. It's no wonder that Bitcoin has taken the world by storm. But all that glitters is not gold.

It's the opposite. It's a wholly shareholder-owned and developed company, and its corporate and legal structure are open source and incorruptible, and it's the best rebuttal for anyone who criticizes an-cap, or especially voluntaryism. We took the concept of a company and improved it by an order of magnitude, and that was just a side effect!

Look up the thing that has been dubbed "DAC" -- distributed autonomous corporation. Bitcoin is the widest-distributed and massively universal, but it's the tip of the iceberg for use cases of the blockchain and derivative protocols.

And Bitcoin, the currency, are its privately and widely traded shares with an algorithmically predictable rate of issuance.

It is a useful way of looking at it ...
