I wonder if anyone here will go to the OpESR protests.

I think that the union of ArabSpring, European Revolution (there are a thread about that somewhere around here) and OpESR if all of them work properly, might result finally in the downfall of the current financial system.

and I hope, the rise of a new better one.

The Week - Bitcoin - "Is the virtual currency for online drug buys doomed?"
http://theweek.com/article/index/216241/bitcoin-is-the-virtual-currency-for-online-drug-buys-doomed

The tone is set by calling Bitcoin "a shadowy underground virtual currency"..

It also quotes one Donald Norman as 'Bitcoin spokesman'. The article they reference lists him as 'a spokesman for the The Bitcoin Consultancy, which offers advisory services for institutions interested in Bitcoin transactions', which is I guess a Bitcoin related business. Funny how much misinformation can be gained from circular reporting.

I was contacted today by Germany's leading business weekly http://www.wiwo.de/

Below are his questions and my tentative answers.
Please mention anything else you would like me to add or mention in my replies.
It is nearly 2AM in Tokyo,  so I will email him my replies in the morning.

Thanks guys!


What was your reason to accept Bitcoins?
Bitcoins have a number of advantages over traditional payment methods. Nearly every day people try to purchase memory from us with stolen credit card numbers.  If a customer pays with Bitcoins,  we know for sure we have the money.
Bitcoins are also faster and much cheaper than credit cards, paypal, or bank wires.


How do you cope with the volatile exchange rates?
Bitcoin is a new technology that will revolutionize the world.  Because the long term price of bitcoins is increasing,  and since I am not converting them into national currencies,  the volatile exchange rate is not much of a problem.

And where lies the future for Bitcoins in your opinion?
Bitcoins are the most important invention since the internet itself.  They will change the way the entire world does business.
I predict that within a few years,  Bitcoins will become a major currency in the world.

Wikileaks accepting Bitcoin donations.

This is a good opportunity for bitcoiners to show Wikileaks their support. Interesting strategic alliance for both "movements".

Wikileaks doesn't seem to understand bitcoins. Not donating until they fix their description of them.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygoqDBfjimM

This interview of Bruce Wagner is absolutely fantastic (warning: it is long).

It's also very one sided IMHO, I couldn't help thinking 'ponzi scheme!' while watching this. Bruce is almost exclusively focused on the (expected) appreciating value instead of utility and although Stefan mentions they're also going to talk about the downsides later on that never happens (don't you just hate when people state they'll come back to something later and they invariably don't?). Bruce also seems quite distracted in places, maybe he was watching the appreciation not happening?

We really need more balanced evangelism, the Bitcoin economy is helped a lot more by slowly and steadily growing with awareness of its weaknesses than by exponential hysteria causing a bubble that will wreck the whole thing when it comes crashing down.

Bruce Wagner is the Henry Blodget of Bitcoin:

“It’s a bubble, but it’s an unbreakable bubble, one that is just going to keep growing and growing and growing,” he said. He had predicted Bitcoins would be going for $10 each by the end of May; the price hit $9.999 on June 1. He now says it will hit $100 by the end of the month and $10,000 within one year. That nutty-sounding forecasting recalls dot-com bubble boy analyst Henry Blodget’s famous 1998 prediction that Amazon’s pre-split stock would double to $400, which happened less than a month later."
http://www.observer.com/2011/06/bit-omoney-whos-behind-the-bitcoin-bubble/

"It's not a bubble, and this time is different!" -That's what people always think.

Just a heads up, not actually a press hit (yet).

Listening to the Planet Money podcast this morning, they mentioned an upcoming episode on Bitcoin. Might be good.
