Have you thought of why people were willing to pay up to $30 per Bitcoin?

I wonder if it has anything to do with rampart advertising around internet forums how investing in Bitcoin is guaranteed to bring great profits because it's built to have no inflation?

I'm not saying the people who invented Bitcoin made it a ponzi but I'm pretty sure some people holding huge amounts of Bitcoins were going around the internet advertising Bitcoin to drive the price up and cash in. IMHO that makes the current bubble some kind of "decentralized ponzi".

Good thing about this is that the insane price has caused some of the hoarders to give up their Bitcoins but I fear that even if this widened the Bitcoin ownerbase it has also created a lot of distrust in Bitcoin and it will slow down the actual process of stores and services adopting Bitcoin as currency.

Yes, I thought of that. I agree that there is some manipulation possibly happening, but I still say your terminology ("Ponzi") is inaccurate. You are describing "pump 'n dump", which is a different type of scam/fraud.

I think my prior posts speak for themselves.

Thanks to some code provided by Disposition, there is now a mix of post count and "time online" requirements. You must have spent 8 hours online and posted 5 posts. This should be easier to do.

I fit that profile and still can't post.

Until that's resolved, could I get whitelisted? I think my prior posts speak for themselves.

This post is a test, on the off-chance that the above post count was a typo, and that it's really supposed to be "25 posts."

With this, my 25th post, here's hoping....

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

Will this 50 post limit be lifted?
Moreso wondering because I was hoping to make business, not have to socialize or spam around. Sure, there are PMs, but when there's a perfectly good thread posted by someone waiting for a reply...

Um, i don't think you lowly noobs are granted permission to PM until you are an experienced spammer, sorry..

Hey I guess it's just a pay for what you get type of scenario. Newbie help is pretty much free since guides exist and in the unlikely situation where a newbie has a question that hasn't been unanswered a mod or other people probably are asking and are willing to answer that question. That's the idea of bringing good topics into the main forums.

Well, I guess it depends on what sort of help your looking for. If it's for a random bug, which has never occurred ever (as in literally ever, not figuratively) I doubt anyone would already have the answer to this. Include the fact that few experienced people (aside from the mods) would actually come here to help, you're pretty much not going to be getting much support Sad

I also agree about your point that the wild volatility  will scare off newcommers. That was the motivation behind me starting the thread asking if the exchanges should adopt breakers.

Seriously, not everything can be solved with PMs, it's a lot easier to get support from a thread with multiple people reading it than PM everyone you think can help Wink

Thats because communism ultimately is based off capitalism. The elites at the top are plundering even worse than capitalists.

True, pure capitalism only exists in a textbook, as does pure communism.

In reality what we get is crony capitalism and crony communism. Big boys at the time are corrupt and plunder from the rest.

Actually TBH, I think that's an even worse as most people who join this forums and are reasonably active don't take 8 hours to reach 50 posts. Now, this promotes people to just leave it open as a tab rather than post (which could give an indication to moderator's that someone is a troll/spammer) which doesn't seem to me, to be that great.

I don't think it's unreasonable to ask newbies to lurk for 8 hours before posting. Trolls can easily bypass it, of course, which is why there is also a post limitation. Hopefully mods will notice their spam before it starts getting out of this section.

It takes alot of time. The newbie section is probably just short-term solution. Not long-term.
