your serious?

good for you that you don't have money to give for them. they have enough I believe.
The news about investors scooping percentages of whole btc economy are the last nails in the coffin.
Open source "wall-street free" currency.

Will masses give them their money?

I have no issue whatsoever with these guys buying bitcoins.  They did not steal them, did they?

Also, I did not know about them before I saw this article, but a quick read of their Wikipedia bio and their arguments about why buying bitcoins let me think they are basically the same as us, only much smarter and richer.

I have absolutely no issue about the persons. I'm sorry.

My point is that it is far too easy for someone to "own the btc market".

Am I wrong?

I love the idea behind btc..but it needs to form into new versions. imo.

They don't "own" the market.  Sure, right now there are lots of people who own a lot of bitcoins, but there is nothing we can should do about it if we want to respect economic freedom, and normally it should get more and more difficult to acquire lots of bitcoins as the market expands.

Strangely that are often also the ones falling for the get rich quick schemes.  Roll Eyes

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update

Sound like? huh?
didn't you read my argument? you very well know what it means to own percents of an unregulated currency.
the holders can be as good as it gets, but it is still a problem. Just as it is in fiat system. they are humans who can get greedy and form cartel with other investors ,and sell whole junk to central bank for example.

This is not a problem because they bought these bitcoins from people who sold them voluntarily.  Blame these guys if you want to blame someone.

Also, manipulating a market is much more difficult than you seem to think, especially when you don't have a printing press.  Central banks would need much more than 1% if they wanted to do it.

Hunt bros. 2.0

The hunt brothers allegedly held a THIRD of the entire world supply of silver.

The Winkie twins 1% bitcoin buy is nothing close to that.

You seem to have quickly and conveniently forgotten that bitcoins were basically worthless a few short years ago ... therefore a corollary to that is that anybody who is doing well out of them now or has done so in the past has done it completely off their own bat (except for the thieves and fraudsters of course) ... you, and anyone else is perfectly free, and welcome, to create your own worthless crypto-currency that you can then attempt to enrich yourself with.

Wealth envy towards fraudsters, thieves and corrupt banksters, politicians and connected elites who parlay influence into ill-gotten gains maybe justified but toward people who have created wealth out of nothing it is a disgusting thing to behold. It is the moral and ethical equivalent of watching someone build a beautiful piece of furniture or even a whole house with their own hands and then another saying, "they don't deserve that, he shouldn't be allowed to own a house/car/chair/bittoken like that" ... how fucked up is that?
