My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:
Bitcointa.lk - Replace "Bitcointalk.org" with "Bitcointa.lk" in this url to see how this page looks like on a proper forum (Announcement Thread)
Hashfast.org - Wiki for screwed customers

Ha, we have the next Nathan Mayer Rothschild in our midst  Cheesy

Quote
To the Rothschilds, [England's] chief financial agents, Waterloo brought a many million pound scoop.
... a Rothschild agent ... jumped into a boat at Ostend ... Nathan Rothschild ... let his eye fly over the lead paragraphs. A moment later he was on his way to London (beating Wellington's envoy by many hours) to tell the government that Napoleon had been crushed: but his news was not believed, because the government had just heard of the English defeat at Quatre Bras. Then he proceeded to the Stock Exchange.
Another man in his position would have sunk his work into consols (bank annuities), already weak because of Quatre Bras. But this was Nathan Rothschild. He leaned against "his" pillar. He did not invest. He sold. He dumped consols.
...Consols dropped still more. "Rothschild knows," the whisper rippled through the 'Change. "Waterloo is lost."
Nathan kept on selling ... consols plummeted—until, a split second before it was too late, Nathan suddenly bought a giant parcel for a song. Moments afterwards the great news broke, to send consols soaring.
We cannot guess the number of hopes and savings wiped out by this engineered panic.

Care to sell those worthless coins for some shiny consols? I make a good price Wink

The problem with taking in as much revenue as he would through Bitcoin is cashing it out. Totally impossible today, even if you utilized all the on and off-exchange markets...including Coinabul.

I don't think that's an accurate assumption. You forget that with the increased demand in order to pay for his service there would likely be an increased volume of trading..

Right, but it would take some time to acclimate to cashing out such huge amounts. People already have issues with Mt.Gox paying them in a reasonable amount of time...

Theoretically, if Kim could get suppliers of hosting and bandwidth to take bitcoins, he wouldn't have to cash out anything. Incidentally, this is how the system will work when we grow past the edge-exchanges being relevant.

Reasonable though hosting costs should not be too big of a part of his budget.

If Mega customers are buying bitcoins to pay for their subscription and Kim will have no trouble at all selling his.

If mega were to accept BTC there would be serious hints out by now.
It's a 100% rumour without any basis in reality.

I expect a huge crash on the 20th

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

I don't believe this is causing buying so I don't think it will drop price much if any.

There are many other people adopting Bitcoin along with all of the coins slowly leaving weaker hands.

Frankly, only complete idiots would buy BTC in expectation of an announcement based on an unfounded rumour from a 3rd party which they have no relationship to.

This community has done some stupid things in the past, but I don't hink it's that stupid.

Kim has to bear in mind not only in the inmediate advantages of accepting Bitcoin. If he is really a enterpreneur minded person, has to think a step forward over his future rivals.

Imagine if Mega starts running the cloud crypto service and all the supporters or collaborators start getting in trouble with paypal, with their banks, in order to get their work paid. If only a next rival starts a similar service, and offers payments in bitcoins, all the "cloud" will change to the new service to avoid problems.

I think it's necessary. More than that, it's a must if he wants to mantain superiority over competitors, and of course, to avoid getting his funds seized again.

He meant to say he expects a huge "bubble" on the 20th. Bubbles are everywhere, you see, every time bitcoin fluctuates Smiley (Even just a little bit!)

Bubble up, bubble down, bubble sideways. (Nah, not really.)
