It seems that whenever an article is posted in this forum, a bunch of people go to the site and comment on the article. That's great because we want to clear up any misunderstandings and errors. However, ...

Please don't post a comment like this when you respond to an article. We want to encourage and educate people. We don't want the public to think that Bitcoin is just a bunch of assholes.

What, please do some research before writing such bull, bitcoin is not by one guy! Its run by no one and everyone! Its totally open source and amazing. There is nothing scary about it at all. Is cash scary? Its just digital cash.

Buy bitcoins with cash from somebody near you: LocalBitcoins

You don't understand. We are a religion and a writing like this is blasphemy and deserves to be punished.


For real now, I concur. Point the writers to their mistakes I a friendly and helpful way.

Bitcoinmagazine has wrote an article about the most common misunderstandings. Point them there: http://bitcoinmagazine.com/common-misconceptions-about-bitcoin-a-guide-for-journalists/

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update
