Also sad to see the confusion and frustration from the QT client.   The bitcoin.org homepage REALLY REALLY REALLY has to stop railroading users into the worst possible choice for new unsavy users ... the reference client.  How much more obvious does it need to become before it is accepted that the reference client is best suited for power users, enthusiasts, developers, and merchants/service providers.   It is hands down the worst possible "0 day" experience for a new uneducated users.   I notice in one post he says "the balance is still zero but it says synching I'll check in 15 minutes".  The realization it may be days (up to a week if he is using a low end older laptop with spotty internet connection) before he can even see his funds is just bad PR.

Yep.  It's a bit like suggesting to a hungry person that they should run their own restaurant in order to eat lunch.

As far as I'm aware even though Ron Paul believes in the idea of using gold or silver as currency he also wanted to allow competing currencies into the market not just the U.S Dollar, so yeah >_>

Yes, he has said this.

Hayek the nobel winning Austrian economist has said something similar.

AND the United States originally had such a system of competing currencies. However, debts were to always be paid in gold or silver as the Constitution requires.

Since when is the DP overly hostile against Bitcoins?

I do not think Michael, who runs Daily Paul, is overly hostile towards Bitcoin. He probably just did not put in the effort to understand it but, now that he has started experimenting with it, has decided to offer it as a donation option.

Yeah.. but it's getting better, especially when their "heroes" start accepting it like the owner of dailypaul or Lew Rockwell..

I think Hazek has tremendously underrepresented his own efforts in bringing this about. Last month our own Hazek did quite a bit of work laying the seeds for Daily Paul accepting Bitcoins. The those hostile in the comments are, most likely, paid Internet shills.

Good job hazek!

It seems a lot of the new Bitcoin users are having technical problems. Perhaps suggest they get a copy of the Free Bitcoin Guide. Should help reduce that learning curve.

Actually although I do post about Bitcoin there quite a bit and I may have been the first person to start doing so way back in 2011, the above post is not mine and I can't take the credit for it or any of the effects it may have had. My dailypaul username is haze. Wink

Warning: mini thread hijacking in progress. apologies!

Hazek....

I just realized after bringing up Hayek in my earlier post, and you discussing your usernames but..

Did you pick your name based off of Hayek? Or is the spirit for competing currencies purely coincidental?

Someone has crapped all over his blog with nonsensical negative waves over wallet security. Don't scare off those boys!

donated 0.025BTC I know its not much but i must admit im concerned that he may not even finish updating the blockchain. I sure wish who ever introduced him to bitcoin pointed him towards a blockchain.info wallet ><.

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?

Wow so it looks like they've received 39 Bitcoins in two days... that's about $600 with the price where it is right now. I guess they're going to continue accepting Bitcoin donations. Grin

A good website that contains nearly all places that accept Bitcoins is bitcoins to charity.

edit by mod: original links points to Bitcoins TO Charity, which is a scamming site! Real charity is Bitcoins FOR Charity!
