In the future:
wealthy = ~2 to 10 BTC
Wealthy elite = ~100+ BTC

For your grand-kids the numbers needed will probably be lower.
FYI: A ticket on Satoshi's spaceship (when he returns) will cost at least 10 to 20 BTC.

FYI: We are planning a fun, harmless "10% Attack" on the ETH/ICO Bubble Game.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

It is strange to see all the negativity about Bitcoin in the "Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion" when it has gone from 0 to where it is and with all the potential and talent that has a vested interested in Bitcoin success

Show her the thread.  Help her believe.  Smiley  Tell her that someday in the near future she will be able to spend only $1 for a pair of $100 shoes or maybe even $1 for a $1000 handbag if she just holds onto Bitcoin for a few years.

I try my best to convince her.   Tongue

She gets scared easily, thinks it's too risky.  I try to explain the benefits, but she says a little investment is okay for now.  To put more into bank savings not bitcoin savings.

It's an ongoing struggle, but at least I convinced her to download Bitcoin Core and buy 1 BTC for herself.  Just to see where it goes.  Grin

I'll take the small victories.  I think when her girlfriends and family start talking about it, she'll take me more seriously.  I genuinely think she thinks I'm crazy.   Cheesy

In a good way though...she lets me do my thing.  Once we spike up to $1000, I'm sure I'll be cursing her to holy hell though!   Angry Grin

This was the biggest mistake of my life. Either be optimistic, or leave it be. Both is fine, but you will regret "a little optimistic".

In the future:
wealthy = ~2 to 10 BTC
Wealthy elite = ~100+ BTC

For your grand-kids the numbers needed will probably be lower.
FYI: A ticket on Satoshi's spaceship (when he returns) will cost at least 10 to 20 BTC.

Dang...how do I get to Wealthy elite!   Cry

I'm just merely future wealthy... Sad

Buy more coins.   Wink

Haha true!  Maybe you can convince my wife that I should buy more even though she thinks we have 1 too many.   Cool

Has she seen this thread?  ........LOL?  Cheesy

Show her the thread.  Help her believe.  Smiley  Tell her that someday in the near future she will be able to spend only $1 for a pair of $100 shoes or maybe even $1 for a $1000 handbag if she just holds onto Bitcoin for a few years.

I try my best to convince her.   Tongue

She gets scared easily, thinks it's too risky.  I try to explain the benefits, but she says a little investment is okay for now.  To put more into bank savings not bitcoin savings.

It's an ongoing struggle, but at least I convinced her to download Bitcoin Core and buy 1 BTC for herself.  Just to see where it goes.  Grin

I'll take the small victories.  I think when her girlfriends and family start talking about it, she'll take me more seriously.  I genuinely think she thinks I'm crazy.   Cheesy

In a good way though...she lets me do my thing.  Once we spike up to $1000, I'm sure I'll be cursing her to holy hell though!   Angry Grin

Maybe you can convince her to buy some gold too it is way better than fiat

Banks are not inherently evil. [...] The business of a legitimate bank is to get money loaned out on a risk appropriate basis, and make money for their depositors via interest. Doing this fosters development and adoption.
Correct.

There are a great many reasons why banking would be very good for bitcoin and other cryptos.
Incorrect.

Only a fool would lend a highly volatile currency like bitcoin is, since if it goes one way they pay you back easily but they're worth less, and if they go the other way they just won't be able to pay you back at all.

Plus, there's no bitcoin ecosystem, which is one of the reasons they are so volatile, so it would be silly to ask a loan in that currency anyway: you should get loans in the currency you are actually going to base your businss on.

The volatility has a lot to do with the fact that it is NOT much of an ecosystme at the moment. It's getting there.

In fact a lot of short term loans ARE made with bitcoin. I think a bank or bank like institution would actually help that, as they would set longer term interest rates just due to the nature of finance.

And we ARE speculating on the future here Cheesy

Besides that, a great many banks rely upon and utilize the US dollar. Can you think of a more volatile currency? It's current value is so far below it's initial market as to be a ludicrous, yet it continues on...

I might just have a good marriage, but pretty sure my wife will stick around, and let me have both:
