"Of the people" sounds to me too much like "Of the 99%".  It sounds politically charged, even if it arguably isn't.


Yes. It's important to remember that EVERYONE can adopt it for any reason and that include 1%ers and drug lords!

Uhhh....


Please explain unfair ?


A currency not back by any gov. and by just people like you or me..  That to me is a currency of the people..

At the very least, currency of the digital generation.


In terms of unfair..  I think your mixing up fiat and bitcoins..   fiat is unfair... 

There exists "rich" bitcoiners and "poor" bitcoiners. People have no say in what "rich" or "poor" bitcoiners do with their bitcoin and they can tell them to fuck off, and rightfully so.

What bitcoin enable is the autonomy of individuals, that eventually form large groups and communities. But it would be hard for 99% to compel the 1% to give up their bitcoin.

The only reason why I dont like In crypto we trust is because its a blatant rip off of USD ..   

It needs to have it own identity..


Considering how "unfair" bitcoin is, it's really a stretch to call it "currency of the people".
684  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How would you like to design a bitcoin banknote? on: July 17, 2012, 09:17:02 PM
Currency of the People ..


That line says a lot...   should be incorporated into a design..

Or "  Digital Currency of the People..  "

But how do you explain the existence of rich bitcoiners?

I think it should be "in crypto we trust" to emphasis mathematics and cryptography.

The logo is good, it looks slick, sound and healthy.
It does not imply anything that could be interpreted as bad or aggressive.


Which logo?  Huh

I'll just update my probability of 30% confidence to 75% confidence that he is a manipulator.

EDIT: Change my mind back to 30% after reading a thread in the speculation forum.
687  Economy / Speculation / Re: Pirate Manipulation behind the recent price spike? on: July 17, 2012, 07:08:24 PM
Meh. I still think he's just making shit up to just fuck with people.
* kiba don't speculate anyway. He just hold coins, thus he doesn't care about the bubble all that much.
688  Economy / Speculation / Re: Pirate Manipulation behind the recent price spike? on: July 17, 2012, 06:56:33 PM
Unless we have cold hard evidence(TM) from mtgox, pirate is just making shit up.

You're Entitled to Arguments, But Not (That Particular) Proof.

He could be making shit up, but that's not what he said on #btcst today.

I suppose he could also be lying to his lenders, but that would be obviously stupid, in the long run.

How is that proof?  Huh

Never mind, I'll just read the lesswrong posts. They're always interesting.

691  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: [IDEA] Bitcoin community center on: July 17, 2012, 10:40:57 AM
Hypothetically speaking, if a Bitcoin nerd managed to acquire commercial property (like a former restaurant or phone store) in order to make a bitcoin community center for a city or a town, what would you want in there? Would it focus on bitcoin education? Providing bitcoin services? Or would it just be a specialized internet cafe? What would you do?


Which town are you speaking of? Personally, I would invade a libertarian town.

Is it possible that you would provide market data on total BTC transacted per day?

So you keep all of your cash under your pillow then?

No, but I might keep some there, and some in my backyard buried behind the doghouse of my 130 pound, foaming-at-the mouth rotweiller, and some hidden in my attic with booby-trapped access, and some in my fireproof safe, and some in a bank safe deposit box, and some in the bank, and some...

I have mine protected by 100 ninja minons.

Looks great  Smiley

Don't just admire, be paranoid, my friend.  Wink
699  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Class action Litigation vs. Bitcoinica Consultancy LTD & Intersango LTD on: July 16, 2012, 03:42:28 PM
As for the proof, it is coming together.  For example, they had two factor authentication turned on for their MTGox account, then for some reason they turned it off before the "theft" occurred.  

Doesn't matter. Grand epic stupidity is still the default scenario here, unless you got the smoking gun that there is an inside job.
