Perhaps adding features that enhance anonymity.

But the article says "should contribute to stability " - does he mean stability of the price? If so, I can't imagine anything he could do to the Bitcoin software that would contribute to price stability. (Short of saying he's going to actively manage the money supply which would never fly.)

But if he's saying it will contribute to the stability of the network or the software - maybe something that will take out the guesswork of transaction fees?

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

He'll be announcing that his relic collection will be being exhibited at The Guggenheim Museum in New York.

It has to b something that has to do with his function as head developer of the Standard Client directly. I doubt that it was something like merchant adoption or regulatory announcements.

Isnt there someone among the readers of this post who is familiar with the development process and/or frequently reading the Development subforum??

Gavin has been working with the CIA to allow them alert access and they will unveil their 100THz ASIC mining operation.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Something like that.  I hope y'all have a backup plan when something or something decides to pull the plug.  Don't get zhoutonged by the man.

I doubt that when Gavin speaks of "stability" (if indeed he did say that, journalists paraphrase), he's speaking of the price per BTC. My guess is he's referring to the network, or to the client, or to the user-friendliness or security of Bitcoin in general. In over a year I've never heard Gavin discussing the price of BTC, why would he start now?

Lots of people are concerned about the Bitcoin price.  Almost none are concerned about price stability.  I doubt it has anything to do with that.

It's probably multisig.  Gavin seems to view multisig as a security feature to protect against hacks.  Fewer hacks means less bad press and more consistent growth in adoption.

Julian Assange will be digitized and smuggled out of the UK in the blockchain?

I have no idea what Gavin is talking about, but why would multi-sig or any other known Bitcoin client improvement proposals qualify as a 'major announcement'?  Huh

I wonder if a decentralised proof of work blockchain could be useful in a future with digitized people to keep everything sane... and then the work could be done BY the digitized people...

Because if a journalist writes "absolutely ordinary announcement" people tend to not pay much attention  Cheesy

my guesses:

- Satoshi revealed as purely fictional. This was a 20% project from google that management knew was too disruptive to let continue....but devs knew it was too disruptive to not release.
- experiment is now over....thanks everybody....btc are now convertible to Google Play credits...but no longer mine-able.
