What is the bounty up to, for a pic of a Casascius coin being handed to someone wearing a PayPal shirt?

I see the value of Bitcoin, so I don't worry about the price...

As much as all of us here understand the clever ideas behind Bitcoin, and as much most of us have vested interest and biases, we should try to see things from outsider's perspective. Presently Bitcoin is an obscure, niche experiment in p2p networking and economics. Smart people from PayPal and and similar corporations, even from governments, will appreciate and embrace the underlying innovations only if we help them to.  Bitcoiners bashing on big guys at this moment seems pathetic and laughable, and in case is not productive.

Yankee,

I want to underline that i always liked the professionalism that you put in presenting yourself.

You are one of the best PR we have.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:

I agree with this niko.  We won't be throwing tomatoes or anything at them, don't worry Wink  We're here to make friends, not enemies, because we'll have enough enemies as it is.

I have never been to the Aria, but hear that all the rooms are outfitted with a commercial version of a home automation system called "Control4", another pet hobby of mine.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

This is great. great publicity. I am soon going to venture into the UK market with a bitinstant concept and I hope one day I will have a "meanwhile in UK" picture of the exact same thing. This is what bitcoin needs, some positive publicity that it is a meaningful currency without a single cannabis leaf insight.

Being close to PayPal was a fantastic idea. They have a HUGE customer base. I would imagine being close to them further legitimizes BitCoin, and peaks a lot of interest. Plus, it gets you closer to the people of influence. I hope you guys get a lot of attention. Very well executed!

Awesome shit boys.

The bitinstant boys were certainly busy and this time, unlike CES, I noticed most of the people coming up and talking to them really knew what they were talking about.  Maybe I got lucky, but a guy asks about limits, claims he already has bought bitcoins, wonders what they think the price in the future will be, etc.  Another had bitcoins in a blockchain.info wallet and was firing them on satoshidice while we watched the live feedback from both a laptop with recent bets streaming and his phone-wallet.  Others inquired about bitinstant merchant services - from the short time I was there it seems to me like the buzz around the room was there, something I didn't feel in CES.  Again, small sample size, and this conference seems more likely to have bitcoin on the various entities' radars, and bitcoin maybe grew up that much more since whenever CES was.

Having a bitcoin presence in these conferences make me very happy.   Seeing an increase in understanding of bitcoin was even more awesome.

going to have Charlie Sherm on representing the bitcoin foundation on DD radio on the 31st of this month, was glad to meet him.

obv the Paypal giant super-booth that you have already seen:



and "Mastercard worldwide" on the other side:




and obviously just for the lulz




Was awesome to meet Erik, to shake the hand of the blockchain blower-upper himself, and of course the operator of the most popular BTC gaming product ever. 

Keep spreading the BTC gospel boys!  Awesome setup, hope bitinstant prospers and anyone needing to make SealsWithClubs deposits I always refer them to bitinstant first.
