The silent majority is silent. Stop trying to speak for us, NO2X. Your Twitter brigade doesn't represent millions of Bitcoin users.

That's hypocritical, you also can't speak for the silent majority, and you're not silent. Not only that, casting the opinions of twitter users as 'brigading' is disingenuous, an outright lie unless you have any proof.

$100 fees - that's IF no consensus is reached. You have taken it out of context. Did you even listen to the discussion?

Ok, 'far superior' was stretching it a bit. Let's see how the S5s actually perform seeing as they haven't shipped yet.

So Dogie is now employed by Bitmain and is quick to spruik them vs prismas https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=902269.msg9914111#msg9914111 which are clearly a far superior product. One of the few credible voices gone; at least he was open about it.

The Conversation? Reads more like tabloid fluff, certainly not up to their normal standards. Possibly it (The Conversation) was the worst performing intellectual asset of 2014, and 2015 not likely better.

He doesn't say 'replaced',

"I think we evolve to Bitcoin 2.0 or 3.0, using the same blockchain technology, but with a way to make the
new currency a truly stable medium of information that can be easily exchanged for goods and
services."

and "But will it be Bitcoin? My best guess is that it will not be Bitcoin as currently constructed but rather an evolved version."


Isn't that the idea - as with most software - to evolve?

Well, to a degree, if such software aspires to be at least a currency. Dollar is still a dollar, there was no dollar 2.0 or 3.0
I guess what I am getting at is bitcoin has to stay bitcoin with 21 mil units just as a 1930 dollar bill could be redeemed now for goods and services.
If bitcoin changes, evolves, mutates, sublimates into something else entirely-most will feel betrayed IF "old bitcoin" would not be accepted at par (or better) with bitcoin 2.0 or 3.0.
Yes I agree with that, mostly, despite Dollar 2014 being worth only about 3% of Dollar 1914.

Anyone 5 years behind the curve in their own professed field of expertise needs not be taken seriously. Would you go to a doctor that hasn't read any new medical information in 5 years?

In fact I smell a sales pitch for a "sure thing" investment if I click on anything in his blog. It's looks like one of the oldest scams about making money by writing books about making money.
He's not professing to be a Bitcoin expert, just "offer a few of my own thoughts on the relationships among gold, fiat money,
Bitcoin, and financial transactions
".

At last John has written about Bitcoin.

It's quite lengthy so I won't post it here, but very well worth reading.

Schiff thinks the Bitcoin price decrease proves Bitcoin is doomed but the graph of the market cap of Bitcoin is not scarier than most nasdaq stocks : https://blockchain.info/charts/market-cap

Schiff is right on qe and the fed and he warned of the real-estate bubble when everyone was oblivious to it.

Rubbish.

Do a quick google.

eg "By 2004, concerns about a housing bubble were pervasive throughout the popular media."  http://www.forbes.com/2008/12/31/housing-bubble-crash-oped-cx_bb_0102bartlett.html
