It still amazes me how many people make fun of me for being involved in crypto. Some of these people are programmers, too! What that tells me is that bitcoin is an incredibly good idea, and their humor at the situation validates it for me. If nobody thought it was crazy, how could it be life-changing (e.g. the new class of wealthy elite)?

Heh....someone told me today: "So I've been reading more about bitcoin. You're crazy!"

And yet this person kept happily asking me bitcoin questions for a half hour standing in a parking lot...

Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.
But Bitcointalk & /r/bitcoin are heavily censored. bitco.in/forum, forum.bitcoin.com, and /r/btc are open.

The status quoe, by definition, cant change the world.

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?

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?
Yes , i am pretty sure of this  Grin

I haven't been blessed. It was through my foresight that I saw bitcoin for how valuable it was. No man helped me along, and many discouraged me.

yeah little to no support, no one, got my first 70btc at 10$... the only support i needed was max keiser and brotherjohnf both time to time talking about bitcoin very highly ...

im sure a TON of people who, even starting to buy right now for the first time, are still making the leap mostly by themselves...

transitioning to everyday life does anyone feel this way, as i do, about nearly everything that interests me and so on... hopefully not forever but its really heavy living the life of a lone wolf

Yes brotherjohnf, max, and davincij15 were the main ones that believe Bitcoin was a great alternative to fiat currencies.

Remember: this is not a done deal.

Often go awry.

Actually it's "gang aft agley" for "often go awry" in the original, and it's Robert Burns from whom Steinbeck took the quote Smiley

I don't know about you guys, but the members of the wealthy elite that I know are extremely smart, socially well-connected and they aren't mired in any particular mode of thinking in terms of investments.  They pay people to look for economic trends that will make them even more wealthy. 

It's a nice sentiment that "the underdog" may be displacing "old wealth", but from where I'm standing, they'll be coming to join the party soon enough.  Institutional investors will be happy to jump on the bitcoin bandwagon as soon as they view the risks to be acceptable.  These people stay wealthy because their financial advisers (who are watching bitcoin like hawks) are paid to keep it that way. 

One thing is for sure, though.  This community has definitely put a dent in the world.

A dent in the world? Lol?
The entire bitcoin market cap. is almost pocket change for some of our wealthy elite, lets not even begin to talk on a global scale...
We are a long long way from even making a dent in the status quo...

A scratch on the world then at least?

Hey, at least Bitcoin users are making the banking community a bit nervous.  I do think that for the most part Bitcoin is not being taken that seriously yet.  It will happen at some point.

We've made some people who make a living of the status quo nervous is all.  As you have said, once it's inevitable that bitcoin is the new gold, the 1% will be buying it up from us like madmen, inviting us to join their ranks as they kick out the guy who was late to the party.  It's not the investors or venture capitalists that bitcoin puts a 'dent' into.  It's the central banks and those who profit from them that will be upset.  Unfortunately, we aren't talking about a class of people that take their sudden obsolescence in stride.  Their not just going to put down their buggy whip tools and look for a new job without pitching a fit.  And when these people have a hissy fit, armies march and nations burn.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Before investors will jump onto Bitcoin, we can't have these giant spikes like we are having right now, there has to be a steady increase.

Sounds like good times.  Hopefully there will not be too many armies and burning nations!  I don't really enjoy that sort of thing.
