(...) Bill Gates
said that the ease with which people can anonymously buy drugs is a major problem
I'd say it depends on the drugs one buys.

And even if it's some "wrong" drug, getting it anonymously on the Internet sure beats looking for a fix in dodgy places.

Make up your mind Bill.

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

Bill Gates retired from Microsoft 10 years ago. He owns maybe ~1% of MSFT stock.

Oh I thought he still had some control over Microsoft even though he's retired. So Microsoft doesn't give a shit if Bill thinks bitcoin's shit?

I'd say so.

Besides Bill was never much of a visionary anyway. He lucked into Windows monopoly but other than that... good for Microsoft to not pay attention to what he thinks.

    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 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.

Bill Gates is the same guy who can't quote you the price of common groceries found in the store, because he's up in the Ivory Tower along with the rest of the billionaires.

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?


What if this whole elaborate lawsuit was concocted to simply call Craig's bluff and expose him as a fraud?

Its not near as much fun up there as down here along the Wall.

Could be and I hope so..or perhaps it is the other way..to get it tied up in legalize for years to keep what ever fantasy he(they) have alive via the US injustice system.

so much this

Actually, with silk road, there was, really for the first time ever, some semblance of peer review and quality feedback.

I would argue that it probably reduced harm while it operated.

And who the fuck is Bill to decide for others how they may alter their consciousness anyway?

Seconded. The criminalization and stigmatization of drugs causes more harm than good from a social, economical and public health perspective. Not to mention the tresspassing on individual liberty or the fact that drug crime literally wouldn't exist if it wasn't a billion dollar industry.

Who is afraid to piss on the electric fence?



Note:  this trend line is on TradeView for BFX with a non linear scale.   I realize that is non-conventional but it seems to be the line of best fit right now.  Trendline for Bitstamp is higher up.

Bitcoinwisdom puts the trend line much higher for Bitstamp but I have found Bitcoinwisdom less helpful recently.   I think the market is moving to using Tradingview. I don’t understand the difference in perspectives - they really should be the same.  

On Bitcoinwisdom it shows us as having pierced the trendline for BFX which seems clearly not matching the market sentiment.

It wasn't quite as dramatic as calling it a "fad" but he did underestimate its importance and had to revise his book:
