Early adopters obviously have mucho BTC.  But I would be interested to hear how much the developers have and what their plans are.  Have any of the developers discussed this?
Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

unfortunately (or luckily perhaps) there is no way to tell unless they confess that to you ... all that pseudo-anonymous stuff which is making Bitcoin great getting in the way Wink

Perhaps such statements could promote more market stability?  Market stability would ease new adopters.  New adopters help BTC grow.

I fail to see how it could facilitate market stability, it may satisfy your curiosity but I do not think it is relevant from the point of view of adoption or any kind of stability (there are other guys doing some crazy stuff there already anyway)

Gavin is on the record as not having a large amount of Bitcoin.

The 10,000 (?) he gave away on bitcoin faucet were purchased for $50.

The U.S. government often issues statements to ease investors regarding the U.S. dollar which they created, maintain, and promote.  The programmers of Bitcoin are similar in that they have created and maintain BTC.  Obviously their statements on BTC would be important to many investors and BTC users alike.

Can we move this thread to the philosophy subforum?  We like to discuss unknowables in there.

I've done a very small amount of work on the code, and I have a very small number of bitcoins.  42.43 to be precise.

One of those I received as an anonymous donation, presumably for the work I did (my address is 1Ed62ZfuPzT9jeD4ZtbaiFtKVUsoD34JoD ), 40 I bought for about $15, and most of the rest I mined on an old CPU over a month or so.

Oh, and I have about 11 bitcents on betco.in where I play micro stakes poker.

good heavens - what a rude question.

as if anyone asks anyone else - out there in the world - how much money they have.

the earliest adopters are concerned with the actual stability of the market.  everyone of them who's commented on the matter clearly sells and buys in Bitcoin, however many they have - that's what they're for, and nothing promotes the market more than that.

i think they shouldnt tell anyone and keep it secret because it would destroy bitcoin reputation and would make alot of people complain because they think its not fair even though they created this project...
It could also make bitcoin worth less ... so it should stay this way ...
