Minor quibble: The potential [of Bitcoin] is known. The degree to which that potential will end up being realized, and the timetable, is the unknown.

I have to disagree. We could have never imagined the uses cases the Internet brought to us in the 90's and even early 2k. Even Bitcoin can be considered an extension of the Internet.
It is therefore very hard to judge Bitcoin's potential, especially at this stage.

https://news.bitcoin.com/theymos-bitcoins-satoshi-destroyed/

The recent Craig Wright-Satoshi Nakamoto debacle has spurred a new discussion as to what should happen with the coins mined by the mysterious Bitcoin creator. Theymos, the owner of BitcoinTalk, feels these coins should be destroyed to “prevent disastrous monetary inflation.”

Theymos, his technical knowledge is absolutely zero and he is toxic to Bitcoin and the Bitcoin community.

Within most circles he is regarded as a joke.

This guy should be removed from anything related to Bitcoin.

Bitcoin's like email in its early days. Nobody knows its potential in another 20 years (especially central bankers).

If you want to get raped by financial markets, defending a peg is a great way to start.

At least ignoring people makes the page catch-up quicker.... But does no one else think some things are beyond the pale?

I just despair of a worldwide forum supposedly devoted to freedom for all being so intolerant and ignorant sometimes. I guess it's me that's the oddball looking at the shit that passes by here as 'normal' as far from it.  I have punched people for less, and yep, had the shit kicked out of me for objecting, too. 

However, I don't think advocating racism and even genocide on here is anything but abhorrent and I never will, so I can't change my spots. 

I cannot tolerate it when my forbears fought and were prepared to (and sometimes did) die to fight this, so I think I had better stop lurking here.


I  temp. unignored a few of these racists to find out what had pushed you over the edge.

None of them say anything useful about bitcoin or the price or the world. Unlike you, who occasionally...

They must have been very hurt somewhere along the line to be so rabidly, rigidly raging.

I don't argue with them, because they certainly won't change in the face of logic.

Horrified newbies will always engage them, so their cries will leak into one's feed.

Maybe we should engage those newbies with stirring little speeches rather than running away.

This is appreciated.  I can't remember a day in years I haven't checked in on the WO - it's part of my life, I engage with it less often than I read it.

But I wanted to yesterday, then my blood just suddenly ran cold when I felt I was just part of a thread peppered with stuff that made me question what kind of people I was nodding along with.  Some things were waved though without being seen as anything but normal - and I seemed the only person to find them sickening.

Maybe I should look away more often and wear an old-fashioned clothes peg on my nose, or perhaps better still - yes; fight for the positive, rather than run from the the negative.

I will reconsider and not flounce out.   That said, I am damned if I won't speak my mind if I feel compelled to. 

Thank you.

Let's be rational. Bitcoin can't recover the same way it crashed. Despite the local low peak, we are still bullish for now. Buyers who missed the train, it's your opportunity.

Sheeit.
Hey Bob, before planning to pay some more millions $ to the IRS, you might want to check this article:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/02/technology/cryptocurrency-puerto-rico.html

I appreciate it, but I'm the kind of fellow that likes to be way above-board with the IRS.

Zero aspiration to tempt the fates in that regard.

What makes you think that taking advantage of the specifically-congressionally-created special tax treatment for Puerto Rican residents is in any way 'below board'?

Perhaps because he lives in Montana. 

I just assumed that coinosphere.tk was talking about reading the article with the thought that BobLB might choose to live in Puerto Rico for at least 183 days out of the year in order to take advantage of aforementioned specifically-congressionally-created special tax treatment for Puerto Rican residents. I mean, as long as he's contemplating a move anyhoo. I know I've been thinking about it -- hard -- for over a year.

Looks like the whole tx spam job by ... jbreher, ... is officially a failed exercise in self-falattio

If you have any evidence whatsoever that I have been in any way associated with a 'tx spam job', then cough it up.

Fucking lying asshole.

About a 9 on the tension scale there, Rube.

Yeah. Admittedly. I just tire of the incessant baseless, ignorant, and malicious slander.

Don’t come in here as a big blocker and play victim.

I ain't 'playing victim'. There is a wide gulf from permissionless innovation that you don't happen to care for, and outright lying in order to besmirch character.

Buy a citizenship in the South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu for about about $280,000.

Quote
The country also has no income, inheritance, or corporate tax. It’s not even customary to tip there, according to the Vanuatu Tourism Office.

Use its passport to spend half the year in the USA, and half the year somewhere else. You don't even need to live there to retain your citizenship.

Why is it now all these bears are allowed to run free without getting scolded by JayGuanGee

Damned good question. Perhaps JJG feels safe to obnoxiously scold only when certain he is expressing majority sentiment?
