Go, little coins, go!

Ah, I think I found the ultimate ZH commenter quote!

Quote
The simple fact of the matter is that bitcoins are intangible. You can't hold them, feel them, smell them, or hide them.

There you have it.  Irrefutable logic.  If you can't touch it, smell it, or hide it, it is invalid.  Much like outer space, neurons and math.  Well, you can hide your math, but it's probably not a good thing...

Uh, is that image claiming that the ECB bashed bitcoin and called it a ponzi? Because the report I recall specifically said it wasn't a ponzi.

Would be interesting know exactly how much a guy like this keeps in an electronic fiat money database.

It's quite amazing how the Tylers' animosity towards Bitcoin seems to have done a total 180 from just a few months ago.  Now we're getting ZH articles on Bitcoin regularly, all neutral to positive.  Looks like he finally figured out what Bitcoin really was, or at least that Btcoin articles generate tons of pageviews and comments.

Who even know who the Tylers are/is?  I'd like to know, there's the contributors and guest posts but who are/is the Tylers.  I've only ever seen or heard one of the "editors" by name, Bob? something who was on Capital account a while back.  Is it Dan and Bob alone?   The Neanderthal ZH crowd give Bitcoin a hard time for the anonymity of "Satoshi" but have no idea who the Tylers are themselves.  Really makes me curious.  

The commentary is great fun and there are still the odd good posts there.  Gotta' give Hazek credit for putting the energy into it.

Shh! We can't let "facts" get in the way of a good story!

I now think the purpose of the ECB article was to promote Bitcoin development in the Europe region, so that it's not so US-centric. I'm sure that from their point of view, one risk with Bitcoin is that if it gets popular, whichever country holds the most will gain massive profits from seigniorage (i.e.: the fruits of speculating that "cheap coins" that cost <$50 to make will get sold for $millions, making the Yanks unfairly rich the same way that their Dollar exports stole wealth from the 3rd world to fund "The American Dream (TM)".)
