Hmmm. The British Pound used to be 12 oz silver. Now it is central-bank-created paper. Which means that today's British Pound is not the same British Pound of 317 years ago. Which also means that no currency has been with us for 317 years. Sure, it's got the same name, but it is not a 317-year-old currency.

Facebook is so far removed from Bitcoin's values that I cannot see it as a competitor in our world.  

However, Facebook could start competing against banks.

What do you guys think of the avatar I made for my ICO?

ICO's are gayer than Rick and Myself, and more lame than Stephen Hawking without his wheel-chair.

I will slap the gay out of both of you and Hawking back to life.

Such a violent inclination that you have there, goldkingcoiner.

Yep.  Shilling other coins in this thread is off topic, and generally offensive, even if guys (or a gal) is engaged in such behavior in order to acquire more bitcoin.  The mere fact that a person is trying to acquire more BTC does not make such shilling/pumping discussions to be relevant to this thread.

you sound like a police officer



Does such authority associations scare* you?

 I'm pretty sure MicG is talking about the original not the original.




You can't hurry love
You just have to wait. They say
love don't come easy

(edited to be in haiku form)

Which is, of course, a Supreme fork.

Probably you need to clarify your above statement, jbreher.  

I understand that in the past, you have expressed beliefs that attacking bitcoin, even by fork, is merely a free market dynamic, and therefore, if we believe in free markets, then we should embrace such forkening events.  So, are you still caught up on some kind of suggestion that there is some kind of praise that the bitcoin community should be giving towards various attacks upon it that are likely going to continue, including through various forkening mechanisms?    

Jeeze... lighten up dude or dudette.

We went from Phil Collins to You Can't Hurry Love, which is a song that was first performed by the Supremes. IOW, the Collins version was a fork of the Supremes' original.

No one is under the delusion that Facebook will create a decentralised form of money.  But they could compete effectively with USDC and USDT.  Call it USDF.  Maybe Facebook partners with Western Union and they create USD FU

Education helps, a lot.  Especially educating and empowering women.  

^Standard evil Jew shill response.  If a creature's only goal in life is to slather on a bunch of makeup and wear bright colors constantly trying to get people to pay attention to it so that it can extract resources from them, it's called a prostitute.  Literally every single mindless thought that comes into a woman's mind about their desire of the minute is almost always either to the detriment or at the expense of the man.  There is no changing this; this is how they're programmed.

"Empowering" women just means turbo charging the amount and size of demands these delusional creatures think they can extort from people.  Since in their brains it's the man's duty to be their servant, a man attempting to leave the slave plantation and refusing to be their donkey mule, beast of burden, means they will immediately all vote for socialism to attempt to extract this 'male tax' from the unwilling aggregate of men.  There is absolutely ZERO benefit to so called "empowering" women unless your goal is to establish communism or maximize how much prostitutes can extort from people.  They were not allowed to vote because people knew this is exactly what they would do.

What a fucking terrifying nightmare though right? Imagine the data they would be getting from you through all of your transactions, anyone that accepted facebooks facecoin would definitely have bots on their page that see how long you check out each item and what not.

They have KFCs by the dozens, but I don't recall seeing sister Yum brand Arby's anywhere.

Arby's is not part of Yum brands. It is owned by Inspire Brands.


Well, there you go.

I coulda sworn I'd seen locations coupling the two. (not here, of course) Probably just misrememberating.

Arbys has by far the most creative menu + food among mainstream fast food chains imo. Roast beef, Brisket the best.

i cant say embrace attacks or forks. but. if a coin or money transfer or wealth storage system cant survive such attacks it doesnt deserve the position. there is no such thing as "nice" when building empires.

Well, maybe this deserves some further explanation?  I thought that there was a bit of obviousness to the situation that I was asking about. 

Even though bitcoin becomes more powerful because it has been attacked at various times, that does not mean that any of us bitcoin supporters need to embrace such attacks as a good thing.  We don't need to embrace nor applaud the attackers or the bad people nor concede that they are doing a good thing, even if good results come out of the whole situation.

Of course, bitcoin became a whole hell-of-a lot stronger in mid-2017 and thereafter because of various attacks that were going on then and even until present.  So, now, some of the attacks are a lot more easily brushed aside.


its not like it takes a rocket scientist to think up attacks like forking. there will be countless more.

Sure.  We don't disagree about these points.


its even possible one/some will be better.

Actually, it is likely that attacks are going to get better and become more sophisticated.  The only way that attacks have any chance for success is by getting stronger and better.

although that may make no difference. look at betamax vs vhs videotape formats.

I am not sure if the betamax and vhs analogy is good here, but I think that I understand your overall point(s).

every fork/attack that fails proves bitcoins superiority.

True, but that still does not mean that we should (or need to) embrace them nor embrace people behind them as if they are performing some benevolent service... and some of the attackers (or their supporters) attempt to frame the situation as if they are performing some kind of service.  I would rather tell them to fuck off on a regular basis rather than to treat them as benevolent free marketers.

would you trust it like you do now without it having survived all that it has? i know i trust it far more now than i did in 2011.

I agree with you about that too, but still, like I already said, the fact that bitcoin has gotten stronger and better from the attacks does not logically justify embracing bitcoin attackers, attacker supporters nor the existence of bitcoin attack vectors.  They need to be recognized, snuffed out and stepped on like the parasites that they are... hahahahaha   Angry Angry Angry

Shortcut ———> still nasty/cold/freeze 3.4k BS

It's somewhat evidence pointing to the idea of Bitmain being the single entity on Bitfinex who rigged the price from $200 up to $20,000.  Bitmain is supposedly going broke now and doesn't have the funds to do such a thing, so if you don't see another enormous pump and dump manipulation, I guess you have your answer on who the culprit was.

Stella Artois (/ˈstɛlə ɑːrˈtwɑː/ STEL-ə ar-TWAH) is a Belgian pilsner[1] of between 4.8 and 5.2% ABV which was first brewed by Brouwerij Artois (the Artois Brewery) in Leuven, Belgium, in 1926. Since 2008, a 4% ABV version has also been sold in Britain, Ireland, Canada and New Zealand.[4] Stella Artois is now owned by Interbrew International B.V. which is a subsidiary of the world's largest brewer, Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV.[5]


Yeah it doesn't seem thaaat much at 5.2, maybe they had added chemicals. was certainly more beast-mode-making than grolsch, kronenburg etc of similar strengths.

edit Pilsner Urquell was always my fave, maybe some Hacker-Pschorr sometimes

or there's beer

Mmmm you speak my language?
