Is there a reason you're answering questions there are opposed to here?

More exposure and attention for Bitcoin, if the AMA becomes popular enough. Smiley

Because part of the job of the bitcoin foundation is to correct misconception in the mainstream?

Or is that part of the job of the bitcoin foudation is to seek to represent Bitcoin in the mainstream?

Which place likely has more people devoted to the Bitcoin community and knowledgeable about Bitcoin? This forum or Reddit?

What about it? The people here is an echo chamber of bitcoin lovers.

What happens if people there ask the same questions as they do here? Will they go on the ignore list too?

I liked the AMA format. Accounts are even easier to get at reddit than here; overall, I appreciated the questions and discourse. So, I would call it a success.

I'm the CEO of CoinLab (www.coinlab.com) and the Executive Director of the Bitcoin Foundation, I will identify if I'm speaking for myself or one of the organizations when I post from this account.

My questions weren't answered, weird:

Quote
How are you going to eliminate the conflict of interest Gavin as the lead Bitcoin developer and as a member of the board at the same time will have?

Would you agree a more transparent, less corruptible and more honest approach would have been to merely contract with Gavin and his team and not add him to your leadership?

How do you defend asserting your own person and the rest of the board as the face of Bitcoin? How can we expect good intentions from this organization with such a start?

My personality type: INTJ - please forgive my weaknesses (Not naturally in tune with others feelings; may be insensitive at times, tend to respond to conflict with logic and reason, tend to believe I'm always right)

If however you enjoyed my post: 15j781DjuJeVsZgYbDVt2NZsGrWKRWFHpp

That's another problem of the centralized face all of you are backing: The speaker has no clue of the subject he's talking about.

Look his answer about the false bitcoin deflation problem:

Quote
"So, this is the Paul Krugman complaint -- a deflationary currency does not encourage velocity.
That seems like a fair complaint to me, in general. In practice, and as opposed to Krugman's thoughts on the matter, we have many thousands of happy Bitcoin transactors, I think people like to spend their bitcoins with others, give them away, and use them for things.

So, practically, there are other psychological factors at work than just your concerns.

I do know some Bitcoin businesses that try never to spend their coins. That said, we have had some periods like last year where EVERYBODY wished they'd spent their coins..

To my mind volatility is a worse 'evil' than being deflationary. As I said above, I think most government economists wish an inflationary currency (and many bitcoiners hate this, and talk a lot about how much they hate it), but I think there's definitely a place in the world for a deflationary value system.

An interesting thought experiment for you -- if you forked the Bitcoin blockchain and changed issuance so that it tracked say, USD or USD/EUR inflation rates for issuance, would it have the same uptake or not?"

 Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Now all the newcomers are going to find this kind of answers in your foundation-honeypot instead of someone really formed and pedagogical like, for example, Death and Taxes here.
