News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Tell that to the guys who purchsed Bitcoin when the exchange rate was going at $1,200 per coin. Bitcoin has lost 80% of its value, from its peak, which was reached in December 2013. No fiat currency has suffered such a crash. The worst performing fiat currency is the Ukrainian Hryvnia, which has seen its value dropping by 60%.

*ahem* Deutchmark under the Weimar republic. Venezuelan dollar in 2005. Zimbabwean dollar around the same time... I can come up with others. Where BTC did better, is that it did bounce back.

I was talking about the situation since 2013. Out of the 200 or so different fiat currencies (plus BTC) in existence, Bitcoin is the worst performing currency against the US Dollar since December 2013. Historically, currencies such as the Deutchmark and the Venezuelan dollar have suffered even worse crashes. But they occurred years, if not decades ago.

After reading this, the scale of black market and digital economies and the effect Bitcoin will have on them I am pretty certain we are going to be very wealthy men -- even with a sum as small as 10 Bitcoins. It's just so hard to believe. We are only in the beginning storms with these significant rallies from 10 to 20 dollars. I will not be surprised to see prices from hundreds to thousands in the coming months.

The world just isn't going to be the same and we have been blessed as the pioneers.

What are you going to do with your Bitcoin wealth once your coins hit upwards of $10,000 a pop?

When measured in terms of implied value against the US dollar rather than the artificial "official" value, the Venezuelan bolivar has actually performed worse (60 VEF to 1 USD on December 2013 to 430 VEF to 1 USD on May 2015):

You're quoting a post from 2011. It's fairly common for links posted many years ago to no longer work. A copy of the article can be found here:

http://themonetaryfuture.blogspot.com/2011/06/bitcoin-is-economic-singularity.html

The author seems to have entered the Bitcoin world during the June 2011 bubble when prices were skyrocketing and "mainstream" people were beginning to hear about it for the first time. In the article, he predicts that the value of Bitcoin will explode tremendously in the next three years (a prediction which later turned out to be mostly correct) and also recommends putting nearly all of your assets into BTC.

According to a block explorer, that account has     0.6198463 BTC in it, from four transactions. No outputs. So it would appear that your coins are not lost. Do you have a backup of the wallet? It sounds to me like something got corrupted. You may need to resync the blockchain. However, if it is in sync (equal to the block explorers, there are a couple of options to try. First, of course, make at least one backup of wallet.dat in a SAFE place (not the VPS). I use Bitvise myself, if I'm forced to use Windows, but that's neither here nor there. Once you have wallet.dat backed up, try starting the client with -repairwallet and see if that recovers your coins.

Buy Bitcoins with Paypal, Credit card, or other methods. Send me a PM or a text to 208-451-2665.

Afaik there are no risks in using VPS , Tor or any other proxies, as long as you control the private keys it should't matter. He probably had a keylogger or something.

With btc where shes at were not going to be rich anytime soon.

Probably not soon though I'd prefer a gradual increase in btc price over a few years than the massive fluctuations like we saw in the last few rallies (up t0 $1200).
Not only that, I want to buy more at the current price Wink

Will Bitcoin Rise Again to $1000?

Does anyone think the price of bitcoin will ever go below $100 again? The reason I ask is because that is the way things are looking before a real run up.

except some catastrophic news or major gov. statements, I really don't expect such scenario anymore. of course, at this early stage of adaption may happen almost everything with price but under one hundred considering infrastructure, development and all investors..highly unlikely value.

I think the bitcoin community has seen catastrophic already, the biggest blow was MTGox taking out a lot of good players of the game.

A lot of people are upset about the increased regulation that Bitcoin is seeing.

That regulation came about as a direct result of Mt.Gox (and several others) failing to honor their commitments, and is mostly intended to prevent a recurrence.  Given what the effin' amateurs whose pretenses or attempts at doing solid business have cost Bitcoin holders so far, it's not a disproportionate response.

So, whatever other people feel about increased regulation, I can't say that it was the wrong thing to do.

i think this is stage we are at right now is what you are looking for before the real run up. although all of this is speculation and can be wrong, but i do not see any reason why the price can go down and specially going under $100, since there is not any horrible event happening so far for bitcoin.

Right now there's a lot of wait-and-see.

I don't think Bitcoin will rise much higher than it has - at least not sustainably - until mainstream investment places and fund managers are satisfied that Bitcoin is able to scale to at least thousands of tx per second. 

Meaning, we not only need to make the block sizes bigger, but we also need to develop new technology.  Side Chains, Fractalized blocks, or ... whatever.  But right now it's not taken very seriously because, five transactions a second?  And with a 20Mbyte block it'll go up to maybe a hundred?  Don't make an investor (or a broker) laugh, that's not even a good attempt at a payment system that could get off the ground in a serious way.  And so it gets dismissed.

Bitcoin could go above its current value, and stay there, only if the scalability issue gets addressed in a credible way.

Rep Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=381041
If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited? Is there any process, procedure or ritual through which an immoral action can be legitimately transformed into a moral one with out changing the character of the action itself?

Regulation came by because they saw value. If it moves or sits still, they regulate to get their cut.

I don't disagree with anything you said but Gavin's latest proposal scales the block size (eventually) up to 8 GB. That's eight thousand times the current five-ish transactions per second, or somewhere in the neighborhood of 40K tx/sec.

Maybe that's a bad idea, maybe it won't work, but there is at least some remote possibility that it could work, and we don't need any new exotic lightning sidechain sharded treechains (though it does't rule out developing any of those things as alternatives or improvements either).
