    Billionaire philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said no technology has "caused deaths in a fairly direct way" to the extent that cryptocurrencies have.
    He said that the ease with which people can anonymously buy drugs is a major problem, and suggested that cryptocurrencies are used to launder money and fund terrorist organizations.
    Gates also added that "the speculative wave" around initial coin offerings and cryptocurrencies is "super risky."


Bill is short.

Don't be like Bill.


Where is that dinosaur graph again..appropriate contextual material at this point.

Oh fuck off Bill, you big jerk!

Bill Gates is the same guy who said "64 kB should be enough for anyone". Now he denies the quote is legit, but he sure acted like it, failing to endow DOS and the first Windows versions with proper memory addressing.

Bill Gates is also the same guy who thought the Internet, anarchic network of networks as it used to be, would be a passing fad and everyone would just use the Microsoft Network.

Is the Scronty guy supposedly Craig Wright ?  Because he has an ego the size of a house and it’s full of irrelevant drama masquerading as character development.
https://web.archive.org/web/20060219021111/http://www.scrontsoft.com/
https://github.com/Scronty
https://www.reddit.com/user/Scronty

It should not be Craig Wright but it appears to be that guy

Or is it now Dave, Craig and Phil...?

It sounds like three members of a really bad rock band.  As I started reading I thought Scronty was Craig, but then....

Has this turned it up to 11?

I find it interesting that the story about craig wright being satoshi has resurfaced again.
Not only in this thread, but I saw a few more topics on the forum today. I am not a veteran in the crypto space like most of you are, so I do not know if this has happened many times before. But I have noticed that certain news stories(if you can call them news) get recycled every once in a while. Which has an impact on newer people in crypto. Perhaps creating uncertainty or doubt?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumping_the_shark

http://uk.businessinsider.com/bill-gates-on-cryptocurrency-2018-2?r=US&IR=T

    Billionaire philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said no technology has "caused deaths in a fairly direct way" to the extent that cryptocurrencies have.

    Gates also added that "the speculative wave" around initial coin offerings and cryptocurrencies is "super risky."


Oh the horror! Law enforcement will actually have to do its job again rather than just choking off the money supply and/or convicting violent criminals of money laundering instead of their actual crimes.

Also Bill was wrong about spam and Apple/IOS.  So Bill needs to do some homework on cryptocurrencies.

https://blog.wizsec.jp/2018/02/kleiman-v-craig-wright-bitcoins.html
 In conclusion
Most of these addresses actually have only one thing in common, which is a big clue to why they're in the list: they at some point held significant amounts of bitcoin in them.

This isn't some grand conspiracy of having stolen a million bitcoins, it's some guy browsing a "blockchain rich list", picking out a couple of addresses at random and saying "I own those" for whatever reasons, while offering no evidence except for some clumsy document backdating. These claims would never have gotten past an actual specialist.

While the lawsuit is a nonsensical fight over unrelated funds that never belonged to either party, it offers the rest of us a valuable reminder of how you'll easily get taken advantage of if you don't follow the #1 rule of Bitcoin:
Don't trust. Verify.
Put simply, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Fortunately, thanks to Bitcoin, that's now as easy as a single cryptographic signature.

Funny how Wright has never provided one?

    Billionaire philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said no technology has "caused deaths in a fairly direct way" to the extent that cryptocurrencies have.
    He said that the ease with which people can anonymously buy drugs is a major problem, and suggested that cryptocurrencies are used to launder money and fund terrorist organizations.
    Gates also added that "the speculative wave" around initial coin offerings and cryptocurrencies is "super risky."


He keeps changing his mind about it. In January Microsoft removed its Bitcoin’ payment option, then quickly restored it.

https://cointelegraph.com/news/microsoft-removes-bitcoin-as-payment-option-for-microsoft-store

Quote
In a blow for Bitcoin enthusiasts, Microsoft Corporation has removed the ‘Bitcoin’ payment option from its active payment instruments.

Quote
Update: Microsoft has restored Bitcoin as a payment option "after working with our provider to ensure lower Bitcoin amounts would be redeemable by customers."

Make up your mind Bill.

Why is Microsoft still accepting payment in bitcoins if Bill thinks they "caused deaths in a fairly direct way"?

Vastly offtopic - but more relevant than race talk.

Bill Gates is the same guy who said "64 kB should be enough for anyone". Now he denies the quote is legit, but he sure acted like it, failing to endow DOS and the first Windows versions with proper memory addressing.

I almost didn't want to respond to this but... well...  No.

First, he never said that. Second, it was not 64k, but 640 Ki. Lastly, have you ever looked at the architecture of an 8088? It weren't no 6800. 1 MiB was the limit before resorting to silly paging techniques like those required on an 8051 or somesuch. Some area needed to be set aside for drivers, HW, and OS. High memory was chosen for that - less than half.
Right, it's 640, I was off by a factor of 10.

8088... no, never touched one. But I do have a secondhand idea of how an 80x86 works - and I think 286 and 386 (full 32 bit addressing possible) were current at the time he is reported to have said that (late 80's/early '90s). Advanced users were forced to use memory extender add-ons. The memory model concept was an ugly kludge, even if the quote is a fake.

Quote
Sure, in retrospect we probably would have done it different. But I'm guessing ol' Bill never dreamed that the crude CP/M boot loader and disk reader that he bought would form the foundation for the bulk of computing for decades to come.
By that time, he knew already. Hence his dream of conquering the world with the Microsoft Network.
