Just a question here. 

So if Bitcoin prices go below a dollar ever, do you think that will be the death of Bitcoin?  The reason I ask is a lot of people try faucets/signature campaign or other methods to earn coins.  If it was at a dollar, that means you would have to give out a fairly large amount of BTC to get people actually doing it.  IE faucets would have to be around .001 per claim to make it even worth it.  I don't think the people who run faucets actually will be willing to give that.

Just random thoughts..

I think the timing is wrong for such a question. It's going up fast lately, haven't you seen?

BTC will never go down to a dollar. I really mean never, and I mean that if BTC ever goes down to $100, I and many other people I know, would jump at the opportunity and buy so many BTC that it would make the price rise again.

I am guessing you aren't paying attention to what is happening?  It has gone down $100 dollars in the last hour alone and is still going. 

I wouldn't say it won't ever go down to that I am also saying it will, I am just curious if it did.

you are correct , the price how moved so high in 3 days and in 24 hrs it moved more faster and now it is going down also more faster, in this situation do you think that bitcoin will go below dollar. this question is really useless. just for trolling post dont make useless threads

First of all, interesting title name....

I think faucets are a waste of time at todays price of BTC and they would be a waste of time if BTC was <$1
Its all relative price to payout.

Now obviously people who grinded faucets in the early days certainly made some nice returns based off todays price..but those days are long gone.

To be fair, i wasnt involved in BTC in 2009 so im not really sure when the first faucets were active and what the general payouts were back in the day.

Please actually read my post, it has nothing to do with me thinking Bitcoin will go down below a dollar.  I am asking you if you think IF it did, would it be dead

I believe they were occasionally giving out 1BTC.  That is what sorted prompted this question actually.  I just don't see people ever giving them much BTC out so it would be hard to get new people to join is my only point I am making

Bitcoin wouldn't go to a dollar without good reason. If Bitcoin ever goes below 100 DOLLARS, there's sure to be something wrong.

What would be lost if people didn't use faucets or take part in sig campaigns?

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

Kind of a stupid question. Even if the price goes below 1$. Hackers/Anonymous people and a lot of drug dealers would likely still use it. So it will never die. And its also the easiest and quickest way to send money .

I think dollar might die though Tongue

Well I honestly thing that is how a lot of people get started on Bitcoin.  I am not saying everyone but in general I know that is how I got started

Oh, yeah! Wow! Well, I'm barely checking prices once a week. I did it more often these past few days as there were plenty of action, but this doesn't change anything if what I've written a bit earlier. I'm here for the long run. I don't pay much attention to fast movements.

I am too, All I am trying to get is a hypothetically question and see what people though.  But most people don't read posts nowadays and they just assume stuff even though it takes all of 5 seconds to read what I am asking. 

Do you think Bitcoin would be dead if it went below 1 dollar:(

The problem was that price jumped a 100$. So a lot of sell orders were fulfilled. And its impossible to get so many buy orders in just a few hours. So when a lot of happy peeople cashed out, there weren't enough buy orders to fulfil those.

Just a question here.  

So if Bitcoin prices go below a dollar ever, do you think that will be the death of Bitcoin?  The reason I ask is a lot of people try faucets/signature campaign or other methods to earn coins.  If it was at a dollar, that means you would have to give out a fairly large amount of BTC to get people actually doing it.  IE faucets would have to be around .001 per claim to make it even worth it.  I don't think the people who run faucets actually will be willing to give that.

Just random thoughts..

Unusual approach. It almost sounds like you define coin's life/death by whether there are faucets or not.
From faucets operator's point of view, all it matters is number of visits, ad revenue, and cost per visitor. So yes they could theoretically be paying 10 Bitcoins per visit, providing those 10 BTC was worth less than a cent and there still was a big enough number of people interested.

As for Bitcoin dying at $1 - depends what you define as "dead". If there are still people who mine it, use it, and are willing to pay even tiny price, then I'd say it would still be alive, only on smaller scale (although price and number of users/txs doesn't have to go in line).

Well not if there are faucets or not, but if there is adoption and spread of the coin or not.  My theory is that it would be tough to get people to actually take to Bitcoin when it isn't worth anything and you have to invest your own money. 

Just random thoughts by me I guess

If it isn't worth anything what money would people had to invest to get into Bitcoin? Few dollars or cents?
It could work both ways. High price - more people will see it as worthy investment. Low price - people will be more keen to share with others, do giveaways (like in the early days) or just use it as fun currency for tipping, micro-purchases etc.

There are too many factors to know for sure what it will be like if Bitcoin is worth one buck.

Let's just say this:

If bitcoin ever did fall, not even to a dollar, just somewhere ~$100, I would buy as many as I could, and so would a lot of people. Never underestimate the power of speculators.

I love dem altcoins
