we have never had a technology that has fit into such a niche that is so likely to cause a lot of societal changes that are difficult to know in these early days

I am the god of hell fire, and I bring you!
Fire, I'll take you to burn.
Fire, I'll take you to learn.
I'll see you burn!

You've fought hard and you saved and earned,
but all of it's going to burn.
And your mind, your tiny mind,
you know you've really been so blind.
Now's your time, burn your mind,
You're falling far too far behind.
Oh no, oh no, oh no, you're gonna burn!

Fire, to destroy all you've done.
Fire, to end all you've become.
I'll feel you burn!

You've been living like a little girl,
in the middle of your little world.
And your mind, your tiny mind,
you know you've really been so blind.
Now's your time, burn your mind,
you're falling far too far behind.
Oooooooooooooo.

Fire, I'll take you to burn.
Fire, I'll take you to learn.
You're gonna burn!
You're gonna burn!
You're gonna burn!
Burn, burn, burn, burn, burn,
burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, ahhhhhhhhh
Fire, I'll take you to burn.
Fire, I'll take you to learn.
Fire, I'll take you to burn.
Fire, fire ahhhhh...

- Fire performed by Arthur Brown
- Songwriters: Jacob Louis Plant

As merely counterexample one.


You are just in a feisty argumentative mood, it seems.  

I would not categorize fire the same as bitcoin, in that fire was likely discovered and learned ways to harness fire; however, fire existed prior to various discoveries in how to harness it. Sure, you could argue that bitcoin and math existed prior to discovering it, but it seems that we are getting caught in the weeds of arguing for the sake of arguing rather than really making some kind of meaningful counter-point that undermines the importance of what bitcoin is really bringing to the table and its potentialities.

Just a fun way of pointing out your exaggeration.

Probably a fun way of quibbling over words.  I doubt that I am exaggerating as much as you want to suggest of me.

I agree that Bitcoin will likely bring about vast societal change.

Yes, exactly, and we don't know the exact extent of the change and the spread of such change... and perhaps, as many have suggest, the change that bitcoin brings could be greater than the impact of the internet - even though bitcoin relies on technologies and systems that were developed through the internet.

But the most of any technology ever?

Sure, without quibbling about specifics, I was saying something like that.

Fire? Wheel? Aqueducts? Agriculture? Sanitation? Wheel? Printing Press? Electricity? Mechanization? Radio? Internet?

Yes, perhaps similar or greater than some of those things, but of course some things build on earlier foundational things.  And, yes, we do not know, yet, how this bitcoin thingie-ma-jiggie is going to play out.. so it could be a bit too early to conclude, for sure.

I don't believe that I am exaggerating, even though you want to get caught in the weeds, and perhaps make some kind of point that really does not matter too much, because in the end, we could be investing into something that is as BIG as those other things and even BIGGER, or something could end up going wrong, and bitcoin ends up being a passing fad (or a one hit wonder), even though I am kind of tentatively concluding that the former is more likely rather than the latter, but I am not going to be wiped out financially or emotionally if the latter ends up being the outcome.  In any event, bitcoin remains a phenomenal wonder at the moment, and how it is going so far, and because of disparate information, several of us early adopters are likely to prosper greatly from this lopsidedness in the information about the topic.... .including both you and me, even though you want to be more tempered about your prognostications... and maybe explains why you feel some need to hedge with Bcash (or at least to propagandize it and its various scandalous attack vector clown supporters as if it and its clowns were some kind of significant and meaningful competitor for bitcoin).

Just a fun way of pointing out your exaggeration. I agree that Bitcoin will likely bring about vast societal change. But the most of any technology ever? Fire? Wheel? Aqueducts? Agriculture? Sanitation? Wheel? Printing Press? Electricity? Mechanization? Radio? Internet?

Also the one that isn't here quite yet but is likely to eclipse all of those things into relative insignificance, AI.

Yes.. another example of an attempt to minimize the likely importance of bitcoin with a distraction.

My grandma is 93 years old, and she was asking me about Bitcorn the other day. That was a bit surprising.

Tell her to buy and hodl!


At her age ...tell her to get a reverse mortgage, splurge it all on BTC, and hope it pumps 100% in the next 6 months and cash out and spend it all...!!!

(serve you right...sending her down this evil crypto path of riches)

Agree with most of that except the opening. Dash is nothing like Monero and not trying to be.

You are absolutely right:
Monero is decentralized, fairly distributed, without a premine, and truly private.

Dash is none of those.

But this is a bitcoin thread.  I am probably one of the biggest proponents of Monero, but in here I stick to BITCOIN.  Monero is one of the VERY few actually decentralized altcoins with utility.  It will survive as a child of BTC along with Litecoin, and... and... well there *could* be no others.


Good grief you really drinking the cool aid. You don't know what shady stuff is going on in the Monero distribution by design. But the cripple mine at launch is well known. So get the fuck outta here with that nonsense. Yes this is a bitcoin thread, so why you guys keep bringing monero into it and obsessing over Dash.

How do people send bitcoin over email these days?

coinbase allows it. not sure how it works though but iirc the recipient gets the email with instructions on how to open an account there to claim them.

EDIT i thought in the past there were issues if the recipient either never claimed them (never signed up) or could not open a coinbase account due to location or some such. those coins did not return to the sender. this was a while ago so maybe things have changed since then?

[talking my book]

You can use the 'textcoin' feature of Byteball to send something via email (or whatsapp or whatever) if you want to send some crypto to someone. Also, the claim back feature works flawlessly.

[/talking my book]

Usually there is a rally around the time of this event: https://www.coindesk.com/events/consensus-2018/

Wonder if it will be the same this year.

IIRC I think it was you that picked the fight:

Monero with its opaque blockchain. You don't know who stealth mined in huge quantities and you trust that there isnt an exploit or bug allowing someone to mint any quantity of XMR they like. You don't have a richlist. You can't analyise the blockchain at all, You assume its all good. Yay. Monero. Its name even means something in esperanto. And it has a wallet now

Just sayin.

If this is not bullish, I don't know what is:

Some of the biggest names on Wall Street are warming up to bitcoin, a virtual currency that for nearly a decade has been consigned to the unregulated fringes of the financial world.
The parent company of the New York Stock Exchange has been working on an online trading platform that would allow large investors to buy and hold bitcoin, according to emails and documents viewed by The New York Times and four people briefed on the effort who asked to remain anonymous because the plans were  still confidential.
....
Goldman will initially only be trading futures contracts linked to bitcoin’s price. But Goldman executives said they were looking at moving in the direction of buying and selling actual bitcoins.
The Intercontinental Exchange’s effort, if it pans out, could make bitcoin available to a much wider and more influential customer base, including other financial firms.
