The people who bought sizable quantities of BTC when this thread started did indeed become rich men. How I wish I were one of them.

Not really, some lost the lot with mtgox, some with bfl and the like, it's a case of grass is always greener.

The Roaring Twenties will return for those that have stuck out the great depression of 2014 and had the stomach to have trust in the blockchain and all that it will offer to those that believed in it. There's so many people who've heard and saw what they saw in regards to Bitcoin and probably want nothing to do with it. There'll be a lucky bunch that have sat through the turmoil of the last year and learned everything they could about what the future will hold, all the while being constantly reminded of the ever diminishing BTC price. The flash in the pans, much like the general public, will be locked out of the price recovery as they won't hear about or see the rebound until it's panic buying time. And, that's if they're positioned correctly to be able to buy back in. Many people are living hand to mouth or paycheck to paycheck and won't have even a modest stake to be able to get much of a spin on their money when the time comes. Those who've held, accumulated or have their fiat at the ready for purchase are those that will be the biggest winners if one is keeping an eye on the BTC price going up.

I will be happier in the long term if bitcoin just finds a value and stays there. In the short term I want to get rich from bitcoin, in the long term I want an alternative to centralized slave money.

It found a value...the problem is that the value is less today than it was yesterday. What if Bitcoin found a value of $10 per BTC, would that still make you "happier in the long term"?

Bitcoin needs to have a huge market cap for the users to be able to store a lot of wealth in Bitcoin and move large sums of currency. A larger market cap increase the chances to have less volatility.

It needs more people using it everyday as a payment system instead of miners dumping the coin as soon as they're mined.

Exactly. This is why PoS coins without inflation are not falling that much now and even rising BTC-wise.

I really really enjoy PoS tbh.  

Only started messing around with them since Just-dice started taking CLAM.

It seems to me it prevents a lot of economy leakage through electric bills and ancient miners (seriously when I look at a miner now days it reminds me of a 1970's printer.)

I imagine you'd have a large number of Bitcoin miners who would be seriously butthurt about PoS.  

Seems silly to expect BTC to go global and WANT to give that much money to the fat cat electric companies rather than reward your own kind.

I "mine" about a Bitcoin a day using PoS right now completely eco friendly and no huge electric bill.

Yeah, the PoW system is looking more nutty to me every day. It's not just the wastefulness, scalability, or the equipment cost in upgrades and failures but the fact that eventually it has to become centralized. I have been here through every 51% scare starting with Deepbit and understand this system just can't be controlled with "goodwill" anymore. The arguments for the wasteful energy use are always beaten down with the claim that the modern banking system uses at least that much energy or more to move money around. Aren't we trying to be better than the current system though? The "we're the same as they are" argument just seems stupid to me. I don't know if PoS is the answer but something needs to change.

Well if you had half a brain you should have known MtGox was really unthrusteable way before the disaster happened.
If you are holding big amounts of BTC in exchanges you know what can happen.

The Bitcoin network is very safe because it's paying miners to mine.

Mining hardware manufacturers would be the ones with the real butthurt.

Miners - not necessarily. If you give them enough transition time (say 2 years) they could play on accumulating coins, so after 2 years they'll be doing essentially the same (generating new coins + earning tx fees) but without the huge costs.

Agree.

This is where altcoins will play a big roll for "research".

I'm not sure if PoS is the correct system either because I see the flaws in it as well.

Bitcoin should stay the way it is for now while others duke it out... that's the main reason crypto needs 5 years to figure its self out.

If your average cost per coin is sub $5 or $10 or $100 or even sub the current spot price, then.....well....maybe.

Many noobs forget that for many of us, Bitcoin topping $25 or $50 seemed an utter miracle at the time.

Of course not. The security system has very little to do with a coins value other than providing peace of mind. It provides a trust in the system that insurance gives to credit card fraud. Credit card/bank fraud happens all the time but people don't care because they trust that they will always get their money back. A cryptocoin's security system is supposed to be trustless. If well designed it ensures that transactions happen the way they're supposed to without issue. Fraud is obsolete in cryptocurrency IF the security system is well designed. All of the discussions you see about a 51% attack happen because there is a flaw in the security system that could allow fraudulent activity. The systems architect (satoshi) anticipated this problem and believed that the system would self correct. I disagree.
