Hello, everyone. My name is Phinnaeus Gage and I live in Japan. Only kidding! I live in the US and my moniker is a pseudonym. Reason being: I want to remain...wait for it...anonymous. Yes, I enjoy injecting humor in my posts.
For the past 3 days, I've spent hours reading the messages on this forum. Yesterday, I spent eight hours reading everything @Allinvain wrote. I'm not a reporter of any kind, but wanted to see if I could help solve the missing bitcoins mystery. More on that in later posts after I past the newbie status.
I'm not a troll in any sense of the word.
My main objective is to start another "bitcoin only" commerce site, hence the joining of this forum. I won't be seeking suggestions, or the like, and will only share the site once it's up and running.
What I've enjoy about reading this forum is how the members, for the most part, have a high command of the English language. Thank you for that. I hope my contributations pass muster.
In closing, soon they'll may be an Onion headline that'll read: Chinese Prisoners Forced to Mine Bitcoins.EDIT:
With the exception of adding a missed period at the end of the last sentence, the above post has never been edited. What appears below this paragraph is a secret project I'm working on, started on 2-11-2013. If found, please don't tell anybody. I doubt if it will be found, for I've covered my tracks pretty damn good.
