41  Economy / Speculation / Re: New Indicator: Number of sites accepting bitcoin on: August 07, 2011, 07:40:05 PM
Sadly, the number of btc-accepting businesses on the wiki aren't reliable indicators because the wiki doesn't include black market stuff.

I mean, it's better info than most of the technical "analysis" garbage I see around here, mubmo-jumbo with charts and stuff, but it's still skewed. I'd say Silk Road does more btc-related biz than pretty much every site listed on the wiki right now... they've got over twenty thousand members. Do you think any of those other btc businesses have had twenty thousand unique hits? I doubt it very strongly.

All the same, good idea OP, keep us updated. I used to check the trade page history every day.

Meh, fuck 'em all, let 'em cry lol

It's hard to express how absolutely off-putting that attitude is for newbies and veterans alike.

Hi, just popping in to say this thread and pretty much every post in it is fucking absolutely retarded.

Fuck all y'all. We had a good, interesting thread about Silk Road and mods just up-and-deleted it, so what's the point?



45  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: IF THE PRICE GOES BACK UP TO $30 EVERYONE NEEDS TO SELL on: July 04, 2011, 05:14:29 PM
Remember when we actually used to talk about bitcoin on these forums?

Now all we talk about is prices of bitcoin. Boooooorrrrrrrrriing.
46  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Do we have a wiki for "illegal" or sketchy stuff? on: July 03, 2011, 08:54:10 PM
Porn, gambling, drugs, sex toys, etc... not allowed on the main wiki, as we all know.

Are there any other wikis that the owners are allowing this kind of stuff to be listed? I need this list. Really, I do - for my own peace of mind. It makes me feel safe.
47  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Are you getting any bitcoin sales? on: July 03, 2011, 08:49:21 PM
I put in 5 votes per user because I realize some of you are running multiple bitcoin businesses.

Are bitcoiners spending, or are they hoarding?

Using the word troll incorrectly is an obvious troll. It is a art, after all.
49  Other / Meta / Re: What happened to the Silk Road thread? on: June 29, 2011, 11:38:54 PM
forum.bitcoin.org is the single worst place on the internet to talk about bitcoin.

Dissenting voices are regularly shouted down or dismissed as trolls. Moderators are now deleting longstanding threads of great interest. The worst part is, in bitcoin-forumland, the internet is nothing but America.

Ever consider that Silk Road is a very positive thing for bitcoin in places without restrictive drug laws, in places that aren't America?

This kinda sucks, guys. I'm not here strictly to complain because there are still a few interesting posts here now and again, but I hardly ever check in nowadays because I've found a place over on reddit where you can get all the interesting stuff and it's still fairly even-handed. Try http://www.reddit.com/r/bitcoin if y'all get fed up with it.

And enjoy your well-earned reputation as an insular hive of boosters, trolls and shills. And you know, I realize that your house is your house - go ahead and do whatever you think is necessary. Just remember that the internet has a really long memory and you can't delete Silk Road from the history of bitcoin.

Thread about taking shortcuts and credibility.

Exclusively uses ellipsis instead of periods.

Irony overload.

Well Gavin, it was worth a try, but I'm just going to throw this back up in bold type just in case we can avoid having this derailed by even more ill-formed opinions.

In the future they'll find the skeleton and wonder over it. Scientists will puzzle over it's peculiar body form and circumstances of being - whole libraries of dusty tomes will need to be rewritten, careers will be made and broken, raspy shouts in the heated meetings of the leading scientific minds will sound across vast auditoria. Dozens of years later, a wizened bespectacled man will die alone, the last acolyte trying to understand this enigmatic specimen. The general public will be fascinated in ebbs and flows over the years, yet turn away again and again, back to the common chores and conceivable mysteries of day-to-day life. Someday, when all the controversy is finished and there are greater mysteries to solve, and the giant bitcoin will be relegated to a museum. Unenthusiastic tour guides will slowly usher families through the final hall, their voices as a droning prayer-chant, and stuffed in between a shabby display of how magnets work and the gift shop will be the giant bitcoin. Children will wander by and before their parents hurry them on, - we've been on our feet all day! - a scant few will stop and linger, wonder at it's majesty, it's hula-frame showing, all alone up there on that sad podium, a light sprinkle of dust softening the light.  And they will imagine when bitcoins ruled the earth.

Do you mind if I print this and hand it out while I am Bitcoin Man?

You'd be better off to carve it in stone and throw it in a peat bog... but hell no, I'd be honored, bitcoin man. Really and truly I would. Glad you liked it, you're an inspiring person:)

Also, that is definitely the biggest bitcoin that has ever existed.

I think you're all missing the point.  There hasn't been this lopsided holding of equity since kings.  2% holding 50% of the wealth is far more desirable than 0.00000002% holding 25%.  I know you can all do the math.

This situation is a despot megalomaniacs wet dream.  Never in the history of human kind has one person controlled 25% of the economy.


What economy? Despot megalomaniacs wet dream aside, there isn't a "situation;" there actually isn't much of anything.

If you think the current distribution of bitcoins is a problem, you have three choices - buy more, mine more, convince the rest of the world to stop using them. Start btc2, bitcoins are no longer your problem! Brilliant.

mcdett, I share your concern.  I don't think most posters here have thought it through, or their world view clouds their perception of the risk.

I'll admit, my worldview has been carefully constructed to isolate me from realistic risks. I rarely think about the possibility that our solar system exists in a false vacuum, that a dormant megavolcano could go off suddenly, that kind of thing. Sometimes I even think about the small stuff, like bitcoin. So I'm interested: what specifically are the risks that you refer to?

58  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Satoshi's spare change? on: May 25, 2011, 11:59:06 PM


As far as early users using their bitcoins for ill, given there will always be people who are far wealthier than them, I don't think that's something we really need to worry about. Do you stay up all night thinking of all the things the oil sheiks in the Middle East can do when you buy gasoline?



Exactly. If twenty percent of the bitcoins in existence are controlled by a very few people, that's actually a very equitable distribution, a good and just start for the economy.

Globally, the top two percent of wealthy people control 50% of the world's riches. Bitcoin is a communist dream compared to the real world.

40% < majority

Sledgehammer through wall-o-text!

forum.bitcoin.org needs a "murricans" board along with the Chinese, French, Russian, Spanish, etc...

Americans are over 40% of the majority on here.

Of the majority of what?
