I still feel like I have connections to FIAT. It is hard to leave everything behind and go full crypto. Takes courage.

I'm aware of some extreme cases that have already done so, but it's not really an option to go full on crypto. Not yet anyway.
Extremities are never good. Take r0ach as an example.

Lol at talking about a permissionless world and meanwhile believing patents hold merit.

Two different systems, each governing different spheres of activity.

While we don't all get a chance to write the rules, we all must live within them.

And yet these two "systems" are not so separate as you try to make them appear, are they?

I dunno. How similar is a frog to an apple?

Would you be honest enough to criticize Craig, if you knew he was wrong?

Sure. He's already made a lot of bone headed statements already. No, I'm not going to enumerate them.

What's that got to do with the nexus between open source and patents? Or Craig challenging JPM on a patent infringement issue, for that matter? Unless you want to make the claim that nChain has not a patent infringed upon by JPM. Which may be the case- I don't know. But my suspicion is that Craig's claim -- at least in this case -- may indeed be true. He can't simultaneously have a mound of patents (for which core sycophants regularly excoriate him), and not have any patents.

I don't have anything to add to the patent discussion. I just find it curious that you always rush to Craig's defense.

Anyone taking this seriously anymore?

Will an ETF approval make a huge difference at this point anymore? We already seem to be finding other workarounds. Favoritism towards gold is pushing the ETF approval in the first place. People seem to be hoping it will have the same effect for BTC as it did for gold. Bitcoin has zero actual need for an ETF

This will bring nocoiners on board for sure but those who already know bitcoin for them etf approval means nothing. We already know and trust bitcoin.

You can post your desired pics here for community voting, I guess that will help for you too.

I am still too far for a hat but I always dream I will wear that someday too here.

Gentlemen, what do you think which of these pictures would look better on a hat?

Sure. He's already made a lot of bone headed statements already. No, I'm not going to enumerate them.

Let's do some of them anyway

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Craig_Wright

    Wright's claimed PGP key was provably backdated. [1][2]
    He was paid millions of dollars by nTrust to 'reveal' himself as Satoshi (this is for those who think he lacked motive)[3]
    Signature claimed to prove him to be Satoshi was worthless. [4]
    Second claimed "signature" was also an obvious forgery. [5]
    N-th claimed "signature" was yet another obvious forgery. [6]
    Faked blog posts showing his early involvement in bitcoin. [7]
    Craig Wright is apparently using his fame to run an advance-fee scam.[8]
    Incorrectly calling it "Bit Coin" several times in 2011. [9]
    Gross technical incompetence. [10][11][12]
    No evidence of any C++ proficiency.
    Plagiarizism[13]
    If Craig Wright really was the creator of Bitcoin, the proof would be trivial. We see an example by Charlie Lee the creator of Litecoin[14]

Again... Relevance as to the matter on JPM potentially infringing on nChain patents?

What central banks can't control is the whirlwind that will be the inevitable result from the stupid policies adopted back in the 1910-1913 timeframe. All they will be able to do is react to the debt-fueled collapse of the world economic system.

If you are waiting for the ‘inevitable’ result of something that happened over 100 years ago, you may be waiting a wee while longer.  Perhaps a few more hundred years.

nobody gives a shit about that part except as a sideshow
that's why it was edited out; we moved on to the part where you do everything you can to support this fraudulent actor and minimise his crimes

Are you back for those few days in mid-February because you need more cash? Is it safe to buy now? Will the price crash in a few days when you go back?


Hey Jimbo - good to see you're away from the cold snap, but when are you due back?  

Be good to know so I can get some more fiat back into an exchange on time Wink

My return flight is booked for March 26 (2 days before the Jays' home opener) but I told people  I might fly up for a few days in mid-February if I need more cash or if it's profitable enough for me.

Sorry but I have no control over the price of Bitcoin. The continuing coincidence is however enough to make you superstitious.  Tongue

I don't have anything to add to the patent discussion. I just find it curious that you always rush to Craig's defense.

Granted, the chain of dependent clauses that I drew that ended in JPM being forced onto bitcoin as infrastructure for their JPM coin is a long one, with each step having some level of improbability. But if such were to occur, would that not be noteworthy? Is the possibility not worth discussing?

It ain't a matter of white knighting for CSW. But I'm not the one that opened the topic. And other than my comment, all that was or would have been said would have been the typical dose of groupthink schoolyard pile on derision that was already underway when I deigned to speak up.

Further, replies to my opening post on the topic parroted widespread lies and or misunderstandings regarding nChain's actions. Are such not worth correcting? Would you rather have slander go unchallenged when the record could be set straight instead?

Yeah, we all know all y'all think Craig lied about being Satoshi. That's not what this branch of the thread is about. It's about nChain patents and their relationship to JPM.

I'm just trying to bring some sense of balance among the near-universal Craig derangement syndrome.

He can't simultaneously have a mound of patents (for which core sycophants regularly excoriate him), and not have any patents.

There is no impediment to him having a mound of invalid patents.
