Ok, settle back relax... what ever you do to calm. 4  3  2  1

...imagine

think what happens when government realizes that the lobby of bitcoin is worth more with less risk than banksters along with their shackles and what's a smart politician going to to? They will be campaigning for the top fork that's what. Think again, not a bad thing.

I like the part where he calls out the journalists that did not do their research, and it shows:

Quote
In this regard, people at Business Insider who compare the bitcoin trade and its current price spike with the bubble around Beanie Babies in the early century come across as dangerously shortsighted and ignorant. Bitcoin is not a plush toy, it is not a commodity. It is an economic agreement, and as such, has value like any other contract that improves your business. This particular contract improves every business except banks.

What bitcoin does is cut the banks out of the loop, and by extension, the government’s ability to operate.

Those wars you have seen on TV? They are all fueled by this mechanism – the ability for banks to keep people happy in letting them spend imaginary money, while simultaneously giving the nation-state the ability to control as much of the money flow as it likes (and siphon as much as it likes off for itself).

Bang-on, Mr. Falkvinge. This is why I'm a Bitcoiner.  Grin
