I don't understand what the wait is for. Is there some special event for it or something? Doesn't make much sense to me personally.

Hopefully they're not going to planning to announce it at the London Conference.  The devs specifically chose to disconnect the forums from the Bitcoin Project in an attempt to keep the Project itself neutral and professional.  They can't maintain any appearance of neutrality if they make major announcements at an event being organised by shonky operators whose behaviour calls Bitcoin into disrepute.

No.
SO do you know what it is then Charlie?  I though you said you didn't, but you are acting like you do?

You mean this?

I'm not gonna say what the announcement is....but I will say that you are all wrong and no one is even close lol (Well...some of you were kinda close)

-Charlie
You mentioned something once before I think, about a surprise that will change what people think the government thinks of bitcoins... so I'll guess its some sort of basis for bitcoin being protected legally

Ok, I take it back. Your the closest. Nuff said, Im gonna get shot for saying this much.

You'd think a government would announce something like that. And any change in the law would require an act of congress or the supreme court...I doubt Uncle Sam is ever going to be happy about Bitcoin unless they can control it. Will we see a fork for UncleSamCoins? I doubt that too. Is Uncle Sam gonna allow banks to hold Bitcoin as currency for meeting reserve requirements? I doubt it.

But now I really am curious...

... I assume it'd just be "Bitcoins are seen as X" and from then on Bitcoins would have the existing laws of X

It would be great

I certainly hope its not something like: Govt X will recognize BTC as a currency.

If that happens, its game over.....

I got the chance to ask Charlie in person and all I could get from him was:

Quote
Me: So a little while ago, Gavin said that there was a big announcement coming up in September. Any chance this is it?

Charlie: No, this is not it. What he's announcing is an announcement, not... Well, I don't wanna say any more.

Me: Fair enough, didn't expect you to go on-record with it if you knew.

Charlie: No, he would kill me if I said anything. He was just here recently. He would kill me.

Why the delay in making the announcement if whatever it's about is already certain (and if it's not certain, the why hype it up with a pre-announcement)?

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Your question was in relation to the Bitinstant Card.
Charlie's answer would indicate to me that the announcement is not about any product, service or feature, but is more 'meta' - something about the Project itself.
Perhaps they secured some funding and are changing the structuring of the Project (Foundation? INC?). Maybe a reveal of Satoshi's identity (huge mistake IMO).

+1

It's frustrating to be so out of the loop in a community based open source project. Giving us the date would help alleviate the situation.

A great announcement would be that McDonalds will accept BTC worldwide. I cannot imagine anything more disruptive than allowing everyone on the planet to buy food with BTC earned by doing microtasks online.

I'm not sure that recognizing bitcoins as X is such a great idea. One of the strong points of Bitcoin is that bitcoins themselves don't actually exist! All that does exist is a transaction record (cryptographically signed message) that says address A now owns Y bitcoins, but it doesn't say what they are or where they are stored.

That's why it was deemed hard to put Bitcoin into any existing legal framework and thus put pressure on it.
It would be interesting to see how bitcoins are defined from legal point of view.

McDonalds sells food?
McFlurries should be on Silk Road.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
