Yeah, isn't amazing that BitCoin is actually 'backed' by something (the work to produce each block) but the US$ is "Trust us that it has a value". lol, who trust their government any more? What a quaint idea!

In fact, we are forced by governments to use their paper money by legal tender laws. Unless someone wants to go to a jail rather quickly... So the only thing we can have trust in is that: "Trust us and we won't hit you too hard (probably)"... Grin

Hi there, I'm not a miner, buying bitcoins only for speculative purpose. Speculation and bitcoin price fluctuation can also attract attention of potencial audience. Speculation makes bitcoin alive and vital. Speculating and waiting for wider market adoption. I trully belive in bitcoin idea.

I design systems for living and have been checking out the forums for a while now.

I am surprised that many people don't know how to design large systems, circuits breaking, power supplies blowing etc... As I design data centers and system rooms with "green tech" in mind, including power, cooling and networking hardware I felt maybe I would register and help people out with my experience.

I am also interested in FPGA design and use in computing so I felt BitCoin may be a thing for me...

So if you have any questions regarding designing minimal hardware on minimal energy and getting maximal performance fire waway, and I'll do my best.

Ciao,
nanotek

My very first post  Cool

About myself:
Dude from Canada pushing 30
Enjoys the great outdoors and the magnificent highways of North America
Web/Graphic designer by trade, currently chained to a desk and seeking his freedom

Why I'm interested in BTC:
Hoping to do my work remotely some day soon and am intrigued by the concept of a borderless crypto-currency
Did an undergraduate thesis 3 years ago on The Pirate Bay and its departure from the traditional means of online consumption. How fascinating that would be to revisit now in the age of Anonymous, Wikileaks, BTC and SOPA...

Hey I'm new here, just came to check things out. I've been doing a bit of work with bitcoins over the past few months and things are really good. It seems like the "gold standard" except online. Anyway, great to be here!

Yeah, isn't amazing that BitCoin is actually 'backed' by something (the work to produce each block) but the US$ is "Trust us that it has a value". lol, who trust their government any more? What a quaint idea!
Welcome to the Bitcoin community, HeyRon.

As much as I prefer Bitcoin to USD, please note that your post is not entirely correct. The US$ is backed by the need to pay taxes, which is backed by governmental force. This is the definition of fiat.

Bitcoin, unfortunately, is not currently backed by anything; the work to produce each block does not back it. Digging holes may be a lot of work, but holes are not backed by that work.

Remember that this can change. All national currencies, including USD, have a finite and usually short lifespan, and at the end of it they lose their backing. And, it will only be time preventing someone from backing all the bitcoins, because of their limited amount, simply by agreeing to sell products for a total price above 21000000 BTC.
I'm pretty sure BTC, like gold, is backed by nothing but trust and limitations. The USD is falling because of a lack of trust in the US economy and the lifting of limitations by excess of printing.

Thanks for the welcome btw.

Hi I'm GuinnessBIT,

I'm fairly new to Bit Coins but I've been reading and learning alot.

I was trading until a day or two ago when the ranges got really tight. 

Any ideas on why the volatility has dried up?   I was going to post this in bitcoin trading discussion but since I'm new I can only post it here Wink
