Memo to Paypal employees: I'd recommend buying some BTC as an insurance policy against eventual downsizing.

I'm in good standing with both Paypal and Ebay, with 100% reviews etc etc. Today, Paypal just terminated my account..

My high security VPN triggered the suspension of  the Paypal account.  I was told that use of a VPN is "against Paypal’s terms and conditions".

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

Paypal has got to be the most poorly run company in the history of companies; I cannot believe they are still around but they will be gone soon.

Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.
