anlässlich des heutigen  /r/Bitcoin Subreddit of the Day! http://www.reddit.com/r/subredditoftheday/comments/1akod6/march_19th_2013_rbitcoin_currency_of_the_future/

Wollte ich meine Bewunderung für Erik Voorhees aussprechen.

Er kann die Dinge sehr gut formulieren, mir stellt jedesmal die Nackenhaare auf:


How did you first discover bitcoin?

In May 2011 I saw a Facebook post from a friend, which said something like, "This digital currency gained 20,000% in the last six months".

I clicked the link and upon reading about it, immediately though, "wow this is the stupidest thing ever... made up internet money... obviously a scam or bubble or some other nonsense."

However, my curiosity pulled me further, and after about an hour of reading various articles about Bitcoin, I had a very clear epiphany that this was the most important thing I had ever come across, that it would change the world and that I needed to help it do so.

I spent the next few days with little sleep, eating Cheerios, ignoring my girlfriend, and basically absorbing every word that had been written about Bitcoin. I was hooked. I had fallen down the rabbit hole, and am still way down here.


/besonders der letzte Absatz. Wie geil. Genauso war es bei mir auch.

In your own words, how would you describe bitcoin to someone who has never heard of it before?


Bitcoin is one of mankind's greatest inventions. It is a form of money superior to all others.

It is a grand experiment, and if it succeeds will remove the monopoly power of money away from governments and put it in the hands of individuals.

Bitcoin is the privatization of money, not through "popular vote" or political courtesy, but wrested from the State through the beneficence of technology.

If Bitcoin is successful, it will change not only how money works, but society itself - freeing people, empowering them, and providing a means of individual protection.

Bitcoin is the antidote to a century of misguided central planning in the realm of money.


Anything else you'd like to say to the world?

If you care about the future of humanity, Bitcoin is the most important social project currently in existence.

Where governments and organizations around the world are busy naively fighting the symptoms of a rotten and decrepit financial system, Bitcoin makes such efforts redundant and futile - for it solves the core problems itself.

It will disrupt everything, and even if you don't care to get involved in using or developing it further, you owe it to yourself to learn about it.

Bitcoin is absolutely fascinating and the most exciting thing I've ever come across, and thus I've dedicated my life to advancing it.



// Applaus !

Für mich klang das eher nach blabla, besonders der Teil mit Gesellschaft verändern und dass seiner Meinung nach BTC noch mind. um das 40fache wachsen werden. Er kann sich gut artikulieren, das konnte Bruce Wagner aber auch...

Für mich ist er kein Führer, da hast Du mich falsch verstanden.

Wenn von ihm was kommt lese ich das mittlerweile grundsätzlich mehrfach.

Er trifft meiner Meinung nach den Nagel stets genau auf den Kopf.
