what did you buy whit bitcoin in 2010 ?
how was bitcoin mined in 2010 ?

What's your point? I still think Litecoin is a joke.
It offers little to no improvement over the current protocol.
Just a bunch of GPU miners sad they finally got axed from Bitcoin.

Plus some reasonably wealthy people pumping value in the system.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

The network has become sentient and figured out how to get people to give it government backed money.

This bit is awesome!

Y'know Vladimir - we (the world, that is) don't have any experience with any currency/commodity/whatever like bitcoin.  We all know that.

But we also have no experience with a network of the size and power that bitcoin has created.

What if....?

I wonder if it's possible to insert snippets of code into the blockchain that might hasten some singular process... Shocked

Here's another Ponzi scheme for you: Mozart! I mean, after all, what value can waves through the air possibly have?

True.

I'd argue a lot of that is Bitcoin though.
Once you're in crypto it's easier to go into another crypto than it is to go back into fiat.

Not quite
But I won't tell you because explaining it would be giving away an advantage I'd rather keep.

litecoin dont use SHA256 and that's patented by US government

Jeebus, without merchants why would anyone choose litecoin over bitcoin? About the only claimed advantage of litecoin over bitcoin, is that the confirmations take less time, where can it find some uses without merchants accepting it?

And no, next time when bitcoin goes up 800% in one day I will call it a bubble about to bust/pump and dump/whatever you like, like what litecoin is doing now.

myself, BTW, your panic button is broken, wanted to tell you this for some time now. I click it and we're still at $141.

As for litecoin minable with gpus, thats only because it is a joke. If it ever gets serious, same thing would happen. But it never will, so I guess it'll be using GPUs forever Wink

that does not mean the US dont hold the patent only that the patent if for free, there was a long discussion about this topic free license is not public domain

The Internet was a pretty geeky past-time which only had value for a few small groups, until over the course of a decade it commercialized and become absolutely essential for everything.  Bitcoin has this potential, which drives the value.  There is definitely risk here, but as the risk decreases the price goes up.

Following this logic, gold is also a ponzi scheme

Normally when people can acquire the gold/coin through mining, they will go that way instead of buying, but there is only 3600 coin per day, that is a deadly design

Bitcoin is quite difficult to understand for a non tech-savvy person. But the ones that understand it, know its pure genius, because it will trigger a revolution that will set us a free from the bankers and financial elites.

And most of the people understanding it is buying BTC to never look back.

Plenty of room to grow
