As usual, plenty of ignorant comments.

I used to think highly of Slashdot, but they seem to have taken a nose-dive in the last few years.

But I guess if ZeroHedge can be turned around, so can Slashdot.

Is slashdot supposed to be for tech geeks or am I mistaken?

There may still be hope for the 1st decentralized cryptocurrency which is Bitcoin. How to approach different subjects is key to progress.

It seems lately its more for tech ignorants and "empty" people who are afraid of progress and automatically dismiss everything that does not fit their point of view.

Or perhaps, is it just envy ? They envy us and they cannot reconcile that WE are the early adopters, not them.

No, they were one of the first wave of immigrants into the bitcoin. Nowsday, they're just old farts who refuse to update beliefs.

These are the same people who routinely dismiss

  • Facebook
  • Front end software (HTML5, CSS, JavaScript)
  • Mobile phones and tablets
  • Anything to do with Apple

In a world where all of these things are now the most popular way for people to carry out the respective task.

A vote of disapproval from Slashdot is pretty sure sign that a technology will see mass adoption and success.

Slashdot is now full of idiots, more than usual. Sure, they can recompile a kernel and argue the subtleties of bytecode generated by different compilers, but honestly they don't have a single clue when it comes to disruptive tech.

For instance, the whole 'ponzi' thing is ridiculous, but they'll point at the several-thousand percent run that bitcoin has had so far as evidence of shady dealings. Guess what, other things gain a couple thousand percent and they're traded on the world exchanges - reference:

"Ten penny stocks that didn't stay that way"

http://money.msn.com/top-stocks/post.aspx?post=f31d0125-0818-47f7-87d7-cad7848d0a7f

While I think bitcoin has better odds than a penny stock making it to the "big board", look at these gains:

Concur Technologies (CNQR) +21,190%

General Growth Properties (GGP) +3,205%

Medifast (MED) +18,471%

Bitcoin multiplying in value many times over looks completely probable to me. As a quick calc, since we're about 4,000% above where we started, lets see what another 4,000% would be.

30.22 - Used as a starting price.

That would yield a price of $1,240 - a total increase of +8,000% and you still would be in real-world territory. Interesting, eh?

Ugh. Microsoft stocks are a ponzi scheme: early adopters benefit  Roll Eyes

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.
