I'm in it for the freedom.

Unfortunately, freedom in our society means having enough currency to live comfortably. This is the same in many parts of the world. Somehow, through the actions of billionaires and over-paid executives, we've gotten into this 'guilt' syndrome when it comes to wealth. It is okay for a celebrity to have millions, but no-no-no, not someone just wanting to live in a modest house and perhaps tend a garden when they feel like it.

I see bitcoin as payback for every abusive fee, every shortsighted policy, every time someone with control over the monetary system
took advantage of the regular joe/jane just because they could. This is the great equalizer, folks, make no mistake. If I were you, I'd inform anyone you care about exactly what bitcoin is and what it could do.

Stand up and say 'no more'.

Bitcoin, or nothing.

Agreed. I would guess that 95% of this community would *like* to profit from either mining or trading BTC. There is a smallish minority for whom the ideological implications outwieght the economic considerations. But if I had to guess, those guys aren't hurting for money either.

Personally, My three miners are paid off, and im comfortable @ 1.5 Ghps. This was my plan 6 weeks ago. Everything from here on out is gravy.

I'm in it for the money ERRRRRRRRRRR freedom to sell less of my time to another employer.

I think the amount of money involved is getting large enough to hold some people (at least moraly)  accountable of something goes wrong. And I think this also holds for not speaking up.



Who are you, the FTC? give me a break.

i'm in it for the money.  what's wrong with that?

i'm in it as an investment - so i guess i'm a speculator.

i'm in it as a superior form of money, which - as TraderTimm points out above - is all about freedom.

i'm in it to profit in many ways, i guess.  and i understand that my profits will be greater if i use, rather than hoard.

but yeah.  money.  i like money.  good stuff.

Maybe nothing, but at the moment I'm only trying to find out where the developers stand. I would like to know if I were investing. Only if I were afraid the truth might damage my investments I'd attack someone posing this question.

I'm out of here!
