Bitcoin struggles as it tries to change e-currency
The P2P online currency shirks regulation or outside influence, but security woes and an unstable worth are among its current hangups.

Bitcoins aren’t secure, as both the recent theft and this password problem show.

Is this dude really that stupid or just a shill? Bitcoin exchange is hacked therefore bitcoin is not secure, published it in Forbes no less.

If anything, persistent attempts, whether successful or not, to steal bitcoin demonstrates exactly the opposite i.e. that bitcoins are very valuable. Criminals do not steal worthless stuff.

More unfortunate news:

"EFF Loses Confidence in Bitcoin"

"Bitcoin's Speedy Fall: EFF Halts Donations and Wikileaks Cashes Out"

"We will not find a solution to political problems in cryptography, but we can win a major battle in the arms race and gain a new territory of freedom for several years.

Governments are good at cutting off the heads of a centrally controlled networks, but pure P2P networks are holding their own."

Here's the actual statement from the EFF

Quote
1. We don't fully understand the complex legal issues involved with creating a new currency system.
2. We don't want to mislead our donors.
3. People were misconstruing our acceptance of Bitcoins as an endorsement of Bitcoin.

I guess I can understand #3, but the others...not so much.

"Mt.Gov"?

This was written by someone with little or no prior exposure to Bitcoin. Tells me that was an assignment with marching orders as to tone and content.

I agree, wikileaks 'cashing out' their bitcoins doesn't mean anything. They will continue to 'cash out' bitcoin donations because they need dollars/euros or pounds to pay for whatever their expenses are. Makes sense to me. It's like saying "Guy loses faith in dollars, exchanges some for goods and services!!!1!"

We seriously need to start a bitcoin news site, and write articles about things like what you wrote above and "Drug Dealers Sell Drugs For USD".

We're top 1% . God I feel bad for humanity if were all at the top 1% lol  Grin. Everyone always tells me "Brian your much smarter than anyone else I know, your on the top percentile", And I myself HATE IT, cause I don't feel like I should hold the title of the top 1-10%. I don't deserve it quite honestly, but it's just that everyone else is so stupid, that they make us geeks shine.

I can't believe it -- why would Wikileaks not be completely behind Bitcoin?  Aren't they all about "bucking the system" and such?
And EFF, for that matter!

What the hell is wrong with people.

Think about the last time you moved coins. Did it mean you were done with Bitcoin? Goddamn it.

My buddy just replied telling them to post their bitcoin address.

Heck, I'd be able to donate more than a few bitcents if all my bitcoins weren't at Mt. Gox. Those Planet Money guys are wizards at explaining concepts to idiots like me.

I wish the media wouldn't be so negative on Bitcoin.

Maybe the Powers That Be control the media AND the money supply? An interesting idea, to say the least.

An interesting idea?  Are you serious?  That was so obvious I never even considered that it had to be said.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."
