Is Bitcoin a promise to pay (token, webmoney, e-currency, currency, voucher, etc., etc.,), or is it a unique license of ownership of a solution to a cryptographic problem?  If anybody would be stealing a Bitcoin (the solution to a cryptographic problem), they would be:

* Infringing on any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other property rights or rights of publicity or privacy.

and this also comes from the following acceptable use policy of AlertPay:

https://www.alertpay.com/en/agreements.aspx#6.0%20Acceptable%20Use%20and%20Activities%20Not%20Allowed

Is trading in an internet commodity called Bitcoin, (with its cryptographic key certificate intrinsic value) equivalent to issuing a promise to pay (token, webmoney, currency, etc., etc.) - or does it only represent its own intrinsic value (like licensed computer software)/salt/silver with its own specific unique properties?

Good luck trying to convince Alertpay that. My bet is they'll still call it e-cash.

Maybe we could ask ttbit to put up a wager, on whether Bitcoin will be considered currency / commodity when it sheds it beta status?

Well, ebay already considers it currency. I don't want to wager, but you can go ahead and e-mail alertpay if you're interested in their opinion. I'm sure they'll promptly reply.

It is a pity that ebay does not allow bitcoins.

But this is not surprising because they own paypal, and they will do everything possible to defend it. (look at the last week's earning release from ebay. one key driver for profit growth was paypal...)


Actually, You're creating unnecessary theories about it. They don't accept bitcoin simply because it is a currency. And they probably do not allow exchanging any currencies on their site, except for "collecting" reasons.

Im leaning towards prepaid cash sites such as ukash ,paynearme and paysafecards.

Why hasnt anyone started an exchange using those systems yet?

I could go to the local shopping centre and purchase a card which lets me buy bitcoins online.

Is there something I am missing?
