Ok, I give up. On behalf of the American people I welcome your tyrannical rule. What do we do now?

Do you know Osama-bin-laden was once in CIA in 1980's Undecided
Almost correct. OBL was part of the Afghan Mujaheddin who fought against the Russians. They were given money and arms connections by the CIA under Regan. Receiving money from the CIA is not the same as being in the CIA however. Lots of our enemies got this kind of money when they were our friends. Saddam Husein, several right-wing Latino groups, Iran, etc.  In the underworld you work with who you have not with who you wish you had.

The ID is not needed for bitcoin, but it is needed when you involve fiat currencies like the dollar. Coinbase is legally required to know their customers and show that they are probably not involved in criminal activity.

I would suggest using BTC rather than "investing" in bitcoin. It is not an investment and you are not likely to do anything but loose your money. You buy some bitcoin then spend it online. The way God and Satoshi meant it to be. lol

Google Glass is revolutionary.. why exactly? I can do everything it can with my smartphone, and not look like a jerk with sci fi goggles on everywhere I go. Google Glass "solved" a problem that nobody had of wearing a computer on their faces at all times.

Likewise, bitcoin doesn't solve any problems for people, and actually opens the door to many new problems and vulnerabilities. That's why it failed! Six years after its creation and it still has less users than the frequent flyer club of Kuwaiti Airlines.

You may be speaking for yourself, but not for me. Bitcoin is the cheapest, fastest, and most secure way to move money. I use it for all my online purchases and will never go back. I have gone through three shitty bank cards in the last year. They are not safe enough for me to use anymore. I have never lost a penny of BTC. I don't really care who else uses it, I use it because it has solved my problems with buying online and in foreign countries.

I don't know where you got your info about the Kuwait frequent fliers. But Tony at BitPay has like 40k in business customers and Coinbase has about the same. There must be a few hundred thousand individual users also.

Accepted by tens of thousands of businesses worldwide. Running on the largest computer network in history. Rising from pennies a few years ago to hundreds of dollars a piece... What a flop.  Roll Eyes

Phone service. It seems such a natural fit. I know I can use a bill pay service for a fee, but I would like to directly pre-pay for my phone service.

Saudi Arabia Calls Chapel Hill Killings A “Terrorist” Attack…


Typical ignorance. I do mention how Americans misunderstand the Muslim world a lot. That should not imply that your average villager in the Mid East is much better. There are all manor of conspiracy theories and crackpot ideas on the street. My favorites are about the pope. He is always being placed in Syria, secretly fighting for the Vatican/CIA. The pope? lol


I don't think this is ignorance. They are just trying to use it to deflect some attention from the action of their "brothers".
Brothers? You have a lot to learn about the middle east. I spend a lot of time there and DASCH s absolutely hated in the mid-east. Thinking they have much in common with the Jihadists is like saying "Oh, your an American. Then you must be a cowboy!".

830  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: "Transaction fees need to be $10+ in order for Bitcoin to survive" on: February 17, 2015, 07:01:18 PM
If bitcoin costs $10 to transfer then it is not going to be used by anyone. This will not happen because the market will not pay that much. Maybe miners want a $10 dollar bill, but they will always receive the lowest competitive price for a Tx. If they wont take that then another miner will.

The Bible is a record; it has not changed much if any over thousands of years; it could not have come together the way it did (probability)

This is false. There are many different bibles available, each with slightly different wording and events.

Absolutely. The Roman Bible we know today may be unrecognizable to ancient Christians. There are perhaps a hundred gospels that did not make the official government Bible of Rome. I have sat in the room in Ephesus where they debated the stories and chose those that best reflected Roman sensibilities. They were much less interested in what Christians believed or thought than making a holy book that was acceptable to Rome's many polytheists.

Welcome fellow bitcoin peer! We love people who want to help.

Congradulations on the enguagement. But no need to "cash out". You have the best cash when you have bitcoin and you could just buy a ring with that. Look:

My guess...
Google glass is a silly idea and no one want to wear a silly idea on their face. Bitcoin is the most significant development in payments since at least the credit card. Silly ideas that have some utility need marketing and hand holding. Brilliant ideas that offer utility and require nothing in return can't be stopped. I am shocked at how fast bitcoin is being adopted. A few years ago I thought it would take 10 years before any major company would take them.
834  Economy / Speculation / Re: Digital currencies ‘to falter in 2015’ on: February 17, 2015, 04:56:32 PM
It's just a prediction. Nobody will ever correctly foresee what would happen to bitcoin.

Exactly. ...

Exactly +1

Why do people think that somebody somewhere knows the future? They think there is a formula or a chart that shows what will happen. There is no such thing and even the very top investment advisers on Wall St. rarely do better than chance. And that is analyzing a well known, controlled and more transparent market. It's folly to apply those charts to something as different as bitcoin.

I guess what they mean is that they made no money from it, so it's the worst. Cheesy
836  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: why big companies like amazon don't accept bitcoin? on: February 17, 2015, 04:23:24 PM
Microsoft is the second largest company on Earth and they take BTC.  Huh

yet bitcoin adoption is growing at a very slow pace because there is a need for shops that people uses regularly everyday to accept bitcoin, for example a food company like tesco in the UK or walmart in the US or amazon / ebay etc...

microsoft is a big company but their product are designed for only a small % of the population

Sure. We will be growing for years still. But it is easier than ever for me to find what I want in BTC. And actually, some Ebay retailers do take bitcoin.

It's sometimes not feasible for big companies.

And it's sometimes not useful to small local businesses.

I disagree. I set up bitcoin for businesses and they are shocked at how easy it is. There is zero barrier to entry and it is free to use. Using a service like bitpay the business faces no market volitility and in fact companies big and small make about 3% more in profit than if the customer uses a credit card. There is NO downside, no risk. All you have to do is say "we take bitcoin".

It's not you bud. It's the 98% of loan requests that turn out to be scams.
