Stunning, the minimum 414th (I don't think it's 410) is still going up in value.  So much for early adopters cashing out, any doing that are outweighed by new hoarders it would seem.

so much for all the early adopter "dumping" theories.  Roll Eyes

i'm fond of memes.  vokain and i came up with this one a coupla months ago:

The Attack of the Ribosomes

Bitcoin is like a virus.  it mutates.  it has it's DNA represented by the blockchain.  and we, the community, are it's ribosomes that run up and down the chain crafting proteins for it's necessary functions.

Had I not won the debate, perhaps more of us would have invested in bitcoins back then, and we would be a formidable force in shaping the new economic landscape, instead of a sorry collection of old farts that tries to buy its share now...

Don't feel too bad - considering the difficulties had trying to convince the anti-goldbug pseudo-goldbugs of Bitcoin's merits, those in this thread still have some time left to acquire quite a nice amount.

And what happened to silverbox? The last post was last year. Hopefully the holdings haven't been sold, as they're very close to becoming rather valuable.

i wasn't going to respond to his comment referencing you (though i thought about it) but since you did i'm not going to let you get away with this one.

the reason i started the 2 gold threads going back to August of 2011, Gold: I smell a trap and this one, was to try and convince younger ppl around here as to the merits of what i had already done; sell gold and silver and buy Bitcoin.  while i admit the entire story is not in yet, i think it's crystal clear now that this was the winning strategy.  

you were the major impediment to this strategy from day one.  who was my major detractor during these 2 long thread debates?  you.  the way i recollect our ongoing debate was that you initially thought Bitcoin was a good idea but only for a minor, long shot speculative investment.  your emphasis was, and has always been that gold was a better play.  as the years have gone by and Bitcoin has shot up in price, while gold has stagnated and gone down, only now have you openly advocated Bitcoin as a superior investment.  and even then with some trepidation.  it's my feeling that you have swayed alot of followers of my threads from buying Bitcoin when it was much cheaper.  and to their detriment and my frustration.  sorry but that's how i see it.

that is my recollection and i can tell by several comments from long time followers of these 2 threads that they wish they had bought Bitcoin much earlier, as did i.

3552  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: 16 Avalon photos on: March 20, 2013, 04:32:52 AM
I saw the first photo of the power plug. I get the end that plugs into the AVALON, but the other end that plugs into the wall is not what I use in my home - USA.

The attached picture is what I have at my home and that doesn't seem compatible with the power cord picture.



Mine came with a regular US power cord.  The power cord pictured was not delivered to the US.

It's a regular ATX power supply.  Any IEC power cable will work.

did u ever find out how to solo mine with eloipool?

very inspirational and you put things back into perspective.

i've enjoyed reading your posts from the early days and found them highly educational. 

thanks for your help in getting Bitcoin off the ground.

Umm.. sorry to disturb, but:

why was it gold, that you are denominating bitcoin in? Why not silver, or stocks, or RE?

cypherdoc, the creator of this thread sold most of his metal (correct me if I'm wrong) in 2011 swapping it for bitcoins. He has been "propagandizing" that bitcoin would outperform gold and has substantial (in my mind) arguments. Some of them are contained in this article: http://web.archive.org/web/20120403154846/http://bitcoinmedia.com/bitcoin-vs-metals

I think cyperhdoc had mostly gold and less other metals. That probably answers the question?


wow, i'd forgotten about that one. was it a whole year ago?  thanks for linking that.
