Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

I can just see someone reporting their bitcoins stolen and a cop mistakenly arresting them for blackmailing Romney (or terrorism)

Interesting! I think the SS should look into every major hack involving Bitcoin to make sure that the hackers are not planning on spending their loot as payola to release said documents. In case the SS reads this board, here's my short list: Tom Williams/MyBitCoin/Bruce Wagner; All those involved with Bitcoinica; The Intersango Crew; The hacker who broke into Bitfloor. And, for good measure, make sure the Woolong Device isn't being used to store said documents.

That should keep the SS busy for awhile, while us Bitcoiners continue developing Bitcoin to disrupt the global financial empire.

Most interesting move might be for an enemy to pay for keeping the files secret. Heck, the person who wrote the whole thing might just pay himself!

Once the bounty for "secret" has been paid, Mr. Romney will have campaign trouble.

Politicians and their games. I prefer not to follow them or play them, it's all so nonsensical.

It'd have to be a PAC, but that'd be an interesting game to play.

By the time they setup a mt gox account to buy the bitcoins and went through AML to withdraw them the date would be long past  Cheesy

I wonder if Magical Tux would expedite things if the secret service showed up at his house and demanded 1 million dollars worth of bitcoin  Grin

I wonder how Mitt is going to get around that $1000 a day limit most exchanges have...or is that just for withdrawals?  In any case, if Mitt wants to send me a million dollars, I'll send be sure to send him his 100,000 bitcoins right away (wink wink nod).

The most interesting thing is that this opens up for the whole world to send Bitcoins.

Hell even Putin could get some Bitcoins and affect the whole outcome of the American presidential election and thus the future of the world (somewhat.)

Amazing thought...

Doesn't the pirate have $500,000 worth of bitcoins? He could easily do this and then get his bitcoins back ?

Actually, one doesn't even need USD 1 million to pay this. Just buying bitcoins for $300,000 over the week before 28th or so would probably ignite such a rally that the price would shoot up considerably so that "1 million USD worth of bitcoin" might only be as much as was bought with the $300,000.

The addresses are quoted in one of the threads about this topic, anybody can follow it.

EDIT: Actually, it was farther up in this thread. http://blockchain.info/address/1HeF89wMjC48bWNgWvVo7Wu3RaLW8XVsE8, Total Received 0.3557789 BTC

I would do that for some bitcoins.
