how is he "crazy"?
besides giving quite a clear and informative report on the jalapeno miner, he manages to make the article self-deprecatingly humorous and entertaining to read.  I'm not sure what you expect from an internationally known technology magazine, but I think he did an ok job. Of course, if you have a massive hate on for BFL then you are going to be hating quite a lot of news when they begin to ship in earnest, which looks like is starting to happen.

just tell me you DON'T work in the mental health field, please. This would not really surprise me, but worries me just the same.

[...]

He decides destroying the mined bitcoins is "the most obvious answer" to what to do with them. In my book that's burning money.

If their experiment brings more attention and users to bitcoin, more power to them. It is, however, a sorry waste that they are just destroying the bitcoin when it can feed some hungry people:

Destroying coins makes all the other coins worth more so really you should be thanking him.

Being a journalist he's probably lying and has actually kept a copy of the private key somewhere and he can move the funds secretly later when all the hub-bub has gone away ... and there is no way to prove or disprove if he has destroyed the private key so he's safe.

If he has destroyed the key he has just made all bitcoins more valuable so he can't win if he decides to play ... thanks (but I don't believe him).

PS: the most anti-bitcoin thing he could have done is sold them for fiat .... locking them away forever is radically pro-bitcoin Wink

hes destroying coins??

re reads

But in the end, the answer was obvious. The world’s most popular digital currency really is nothing more than an abstraction. So we’re destroying the private key used by our Bitcon wallet. That leaves our growing pile of Bitcoin lucre locked away in a digital vault for all eternity — or at least until someone cracks the SHA-256 encryption that secures it.

hmmmm well thats stupid...

funny choice of words... tho " destroying " and not " destroyed", i bet they wont be able to bring themselves to do it  Tongue

Can't he just send the coins to another address and we can watch that transaction and address til the end of time? Either way, charity makes more sense to me...
