When did Lee ever claim he invented the internet? O_o don't make things up... He at worst claims he is the father of the world wide web, which he "is". And you might not realize the importance that had on today's world. before, communities were very different.

Blockchain technology at its core is a distributed database, it does not imply nor require the existance of a "token" (or coin per se). If they want to try such a system, where is the harm?

A bank won t make much money from bankrupt debtors, cc for crypto is moronic in the best of cases. Do you use your CC at the ATM?

We might want to start worrying when you can t use bank transfers.

use the rcpusername and rcpuserpassword you specified in your desire.conf file.
when is it you are getting this error exactly? if it is with sentinel, did you point sentinel to the right conf file?

that anyone considering 2 in 3 an historical series is either a moron or a liar with an agenda.

Let's just all accept that we have nothing solid on which to base an honest prediction for the future of bitcoin with ANY degree of certainty.

IT depends how it compares with capital gain and income tax in the country in general, and how they handle losses. Also depends when they calculate capital gain (at the moment of conversion to JPY, or each conversion between different cryptos).

55% on insane free money this year would have been just fine. it won't be fine when (if) crypto ever stabilizes. there again, it's early days, and governments will need some time to tune things.

the clearer the regulations the better.

Basically, what I am saying (though DH said it far more eloquently) is that there really isn't a need for "full nodes" that are having trouble setting themselves up. There are plenty of full replicas of the blockchain, and frankly there is no real reson for an end user to keep one more. Keep in mind it's only even slightly useful if you're Always on, 24/7, with good reachability. and even if you are, your addition to the network isn't essential.

This isn't to discourage people from running full nodes. I personally run two, 24/7, but you have to learn to deal with the software and its management. It will take you anywhere from 3 days to a week to fully sync. If bootstrapping doesn't make the process any quicker then you're not bandwidth bound but CPU bound.

Unless you're on dialup, you'll never have problems staying up to date. Keep in mind the first few years we were nowehere near filling blocks, which means the chain grew less than it could have. nowadays we are closer to saturation, so growth is a lot more linear.

As far as bootstrapping goes, it's insane to download the Whole thing from scratch through the core client. Look for a bootstrap torrent, and sync from there. yes, first start will be slow, but it won't take nearly as long.

All this said, nobody's ever said you need to run a full node. Wallets like Electrum, especially if combined with Trezor or other hardware wallets, are safe enough--indeed more in some cases--than running a full node.
there is no need to run a full node, and not doing so won't make you anybody's slave.

If you want core and contribute, you have more studying to do, because you simply havn't learnt enough yet to be useful.

If your dream is to be rich, you're nothing and will Always be nothing, with or without bitcoin.

Dream and strive for something, for a goal. The goal may even require you being rich to get there, that's fine, but wealth itself isn't a goal and leads to nothing other than pathological fear of not being rich, and neverending discontent for not having enough.

Set yourself goals, and plan multiple strategies to get there or there abouts. These strategies must contemplate the disappearance of Bitcoin, of course, and plan around that.

Anybody who knows the kind of person this man is, or has even in passing followed him over time should be well aware that he is very likely telling he truth when he says he simply doesn't want the stress.

and he is one of the few people in the world that really doesn't need it.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoinfuji challenges Bitcoin on: February 06, 2018, 01:25:51 AM
so what you're saying is that there is about to be one more in the roughly, what, 10.000 alt-coins space?

With all projects dedicated to enriching the community, I can never stress enough that the important thing is to try, and listen. You won't get much feedback for an idea just like you won't get much praise from a functioning product.

go out there, build it, and wait for all the free criticism to come your way. If you filter the crap they will throw at you and find the Golden nuggets of good suggestions, improve the service.

eventually, it will be self evident, if anybody finds it useful. Make it and see. often people don't really know what they really need and want.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Uh oh sec talking Bitcoin on: February 06, 2018, 01:05:16 AM
Bitcoin did really bad when the government wasn't watching, too.

I do realize there is a sizable portion of this forum's userbase who subscribes to absurd and extreme libertarian ideals, but let's be realistic, government regulation and oversight, when not excessive and applied properly is a good thing not a bad thing. The very nature of cryptocurrencies make them mostly censorship resistant, therefore we won't be witnessing a (succesful) blanket ban.

let's wait and see.

It most probably will be a good thing for the technology and ecosystem in the long run.

If it will not be, crypto will simply react.

Information, when real, is Always useful.

now, if you want to know wether people would be willing to PAY for such info, that might be a different matter altogether.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BIG banks ban credit card purchases for BITCOIN on: February 05, 2018, 11:41:16 PM
guys, stop and read (apologies to those of you who have, but it's Worth reiterating)

None of these banks have banned buying cryptocurrency. At all. You can do what the hell you want with your money when using these banks. Keyword, YOUR money.

A credit card is a loan.

NOBODY with some soul and minimum fiscal responsability would ever let you take out a loan to buy cryptocurrency. that is irresponsible and all-in-all a terrible choice. If you DO want to buy crypto with borrowed money, then you will have to find someone with little enough scruples and high enough interest rates that won't mind giving you money to burn.

What these banks have done is _resposnible_, it is good. for them AND for the customers. Sure, they most likely did not do it out of the kindness of their heart, but because they have little ability to recupe eventual losses. still a good thing.

19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Inside this thread you will find the REAL PRICE OF BITCOIN ! on: February 05, 2018, 07:56:34 PM
actually, with some good skill in a market like the current one, 1BTC, from time to time, ends up being Worth 1.02BTC or thereabouts, that's how you make money during a crash ^^

Who the hell would want to do business with Enel. Italy has the track record of rabid dog in terms of reliability, let alone the absurdity of buying energy from a company that's not even been capable of supplying its own country of orgin (Italy has insane energy costs due to not being enrgy independent).
