... numerous people shilling FOR Bitcoin like Last of the V8s and the Popescu cult all believe the segwit coins will become anyone can spend and anyone using a segwit address will lose everything?  ...
I've never said this.
 'anyonecanspend' means even a non-segwit node can spend, if they have the valid signature.

Not to put too fine a point on it, anyone can spend any coins, including legacy addresses, if they have the valid signature

In that case, I would recommend Ledger.

Another reason metals revaluation is inevitable:

Quote
In 2011, the Mint awarded a contract to study the issue to Concurrent Technologies Corporation of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The report in response to the legislation declared that there is no material that would reduce the one-cent coin's manufacturing cost to below one cent, so it was removed from consideration.

Therefore the value of a penny (the thing made out zinc and copper) has to rise to something like 5-10 cents to exist at all.  Alternatively, a penny could be worth 1 penny, but a penny would buy you a lot more than it does now in a new monetary system.

It was always going to be very impractical opsec-wise to have one huge party.
We're going to have to decentralise this thing.

I think you're right...

All of us getting together in one place and time that is publicly known (or that could leak) will create a huge BTC honey pot. We could then be abducted, tortured and have our BTC wrenched out of us! OUCH!

Most of us already are, or will soon be millionaires, some even billionaires... This is no joke! Gotta organize this thing very carefully...

I agree with your overall sentiment, and the point(s) that you are making, AlcoHolDL; however, I am going to quibble a bit with your assessment that "most of us already are, or will soon be millionaires."  To be or soon be a millionaire, most of us would need to have in the territory of 100 coins or assuming that a BTC price of $20k is imminent, then "most of us" would need to have 50 coins or more.  I have my doubts about that assessment, at least in terms of the "most" categorization.

OK, yeah, that was an edited post. In the original I had typed "most of us will soon be millionaires", and later added the "already are" part.

But still, in 3-5 years from now, even single-digit BTC coinage could be worth > $1M.

But yeah, "most" was probably too much.

Still, good things come to those who wait. IOW: HoDL!

Edit: Also, at the $100k party, just 10 BTC makes you a millionaire by definition...

The acceptability of metals as payment (since they're actual useful elements of the periodic table and not Ponzi schemes) will always be far higher than digital scamcoins, so there will always be motive for metals smuggling whether Bitcoin lives or dies.  Also, if a paper fiat money dies and fucks over everyone, people will never accept another paper money in it's place right afterwards either, and just about everyone sees valueless 0's and 1's as the same thing as a paper currency, so you're also fucked in that regard.

~Snip~

mic is a top guy, I don’t know what Jay means when he says mic has a team?

I literally met him & cryptoqueeen 2 days ago. I don’t know what I expected them to be like but they’re really cool people, friendly, looking forward to seeing them again in the future.

Only Jay can shed some light. Which I am sure he will because as far as I understand him, he doesn't strike me that kind of person who bitches at someone's else back. its rare quality.

It's good that you guys bumped into each other. Hopefully, many WO members meet each other too in next 5-10years, I would love to meet the gang at some point. If not, then partying near the Himalayas is my go-to option.

On a side note, I think Kenzawak and my path could cross sooner. The only drawback I can think of is I travel as a bag packer, and he's a slightly fancy traveler. Cheesy

I assume the guy in the article maxed out his rectum for 1kg of gold. Which is worth around $ 41k. So Roach you have to start training your rectum and maximize the amount of silver it can hodl. With the current price you could flee the country with $ 480 worth of silver up your bum!

Guys...

Earlier today I was walking on the street when I saw the innards of a USB stick on the pavement. It had been lying there for a while, had been stepped on by passers-by several times, but looked like it could be readable. I saw it, walked past it, and kept walking away...

Until it hit me: what if this little thing lying on the ground contains the private key to a massive BTC wallet? I thought, naaah, no way... But I couldn't escape the thought. I went back and picked it up!!! Tried to read it just now, but no dice. It was as DEAD as a cockr0ach smashed by a 400oz gold bar!

Has this ever happened to you? With USB sticks or old HDs/PCs? I mean, the urge to check the contents for keys?

I'm paranoid, I know...

Wait, so Bitcoin has 'developers' that can play God and alter my digital shitcoins in ways that I don't want?  What happens when the developer does this to my physical metals??? Oh wait....they can't!  Which is one reason metals are money and Bitcoin isn't.

Have you ever bought anything with physical silver or good?
Metals were used as money hundreds of years ago. Physical metals are primarily a store of value now.

Imagine going into a grocery store & trying to buy stuff with silver Grin
That will never change in our lifetime.

As Will never ever change, you can’t cut silver in instant small pieces to pay and change or whatever, BTC of-course all is possible with

But to be fair silver doesn't need an internet connection, and wait for 6 people to sign an affidavit.

What are your preferences for the 100K party, r0ach?

We can have the $0k party in my basement.


Get the fuck out of here roach.

Grandma is not dead yet, so it's grandma's basement, not "my" basement.     Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes  And, you really think grandma is going to handmedown her basement, especially with your bad financial judgement that leaves you largely in negative equity hoarding those worthless pms and screwing away the family's wealth with your ongoing bad investment choices?

Ohh come one now JJ, I bet she would serve up nice triangle cut PB and J's with the crust neatly trimmed off for all his friends hes been talking about for years.

I never quote the roach but I gotta admit this one was funny.

I got a harddrive from a laptop that broke. I know for a fact that it has old wallets on it, and that they are empty. Still gonna get the thing copied just to make sure.

It also possibly holds some other things I wanna keep, such as a copy of the original Colonization. Google has not been helpful in finding it elsewhere.

Imagine going into a grocery store & trying to buy stuff with silver Grin

As if people don't already use metal coins every single day already and have done so for the last 5000 years.  All metals revaluation does is give you options of higher denomination coins.  In any type of metals system it's never just gold only that's used, it's gold, silver, and copper.  Post metals revaluation would look something like this:

$10,000 1 oz gold
$5,000   1/2 oz gold
$1000    1/10th oz gold
$500      1/20th oz gold

$200 1 oz silver
$100 1/2 oz silver
$20   1/10th oz silver
$10   1/20th oz silver

$2       1 oz copper
$1       1/2 oz copper
$0.20  1/10th oz copper
$0.10  1/20th oz copper

Pennies pre-metals revaluation currently cost something like 1.8 cents to make.  They would probably use aluminum coins or something for coin denominations below copper like the penny.  That was the lowball estimate for silver. It's also possible silver could be a lot higher at something like 20:1 GSR with:

$500   1 oz silver
$50     1/10th oz silver
$25     1/20th oz silver

$5        1 oz copper
$2.50   1/2 oz copper
$0.50   1/10th oz copper
$0.25   1/20th oz copper

In the lowball figure, silver is still a +13.5x while gold is a +7.7x.  In the highball figure, silver is +33x vs gold's 7.7x.  If you used the lowball figure, you would likely pay 1/20th an ounce of silver for a pizza and the price would remain the same for decades.  If you tried to price the pizza in Bitcoin...it's not even possible to have anywhere near a remotely stable price in Bitcoin over a short period let alone decades, which is another reason it's useless as money and is just a Ponzi scheme.

In many parts of the world it is getting harder to use coins.   For example in China now many vending machines require a smartphone to purchase a cheap drink.   Money is no longer tied to the value of metal.

Also it must burn you know the 1 BTC is worth more than 1 oz of gold.
