Bitcoin Community Takes an Interest in Occupy Wall Street

Adrianne Jeffries
2011-10-07

http://www.betabeat.com/2011/10/07/bitcoin-community-takes-an-interest-in-occupy-wall-street/

"The sympathies roll both ways–Occupy Wall Street has accepted donations denominated in Bitcoin since early on. "




Personally I think occupying Wall Street is silly.  It's useless to shout like this.  If you're not happy with the US currency or the banking system, just buy gold, silver or bitcoins.  It's less noisy, but much more efficient imho.

There's more at stake here than personal fiscal security.  The central question OWS is asking is "What kind of society should we be?  Should we value and foster community support, or let the Wall St. focus on personal fiscal security continue to destabilize our social supports?"

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Bitcoin: Currency of the Future?

http://engineeringethicsblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/bitcoin-currency-of-future.html


Quote
When bitcoin goes up in comparison to the dollar, I suppose it says that some number of people concerned about both currencies trust Mr. Nakamoto more than they trust Uncle Sam, at least for the moment.
Overall a reasonable post - but the quote above strikes me as odd. 'Trust' in Nakamoto is decidedly unnecessary because it's an open sourced system which is maintained/reviewed by many.

I'm probably going to be more sporadic in my bitcoin press hits updates.
It's better that this thread is newshounded by many anyway - I seem to have taken it over a bit lately.

Bitcoin: Birth of an online currency

A new anonymous digital currency that allows instant payment to anyone, anywhere. Sounds great, just not for the average consumer.

Aaron Broverman (bankrate.com)
2011-10-15

http://money.ca.msn.com/banking/bankrate/bitcoin-birth-of-an-online-currency


So what would it take for Bitcoin to usurp PayPal as North America's major online payment system? "They have a long, long way to go," says Williamson. "Right now, it's not clear that anyone is holding this for anything other than speculation, Money is a self-fulfilling thing; it's accepted because it's accepted and people must see it being used and think it is easy to use."

" people must see it being used and think it is easy to use"
..and that in a nutshell is bitcoin's biggest (but not only) hurdle I think.

"If you subscribe to that perspective, and want to pick up some bitcoins dirt cheap, then now's probably a good time. The bitcoin community will likely be happy to have you."
