Who still uses PayPal!?!? Everyone hates PayPal. I thought the whole world was already using the free (as in both cost & freedom) open source decentralized p2p PayPal replacement... Bitcoin ( http://bitcoinme.com/ )

Idea:

We can use the current scepticism about PayPal to direct people to BITCOIN. With ten thousands of people closing their paypal account over the past hours, there is big potential for a great alternative: Bitcoin (and the good thing is that we do not necessarily link this directly to wikileaks, we can just piggyback on the rejection of paypal).

WHAT to communicate:
 " STOP using PAYPAL, START using BITCOIN"

  or simpler " STOP PAYPAL, START BITCOIN"

HOW?
1. Create a new facebook page " STOP PAYPAL, START BITCOIN"

2. Promote this from various other sites, pages, forums, i.e. building on what Bruce commented on yesterday.
\
If we use this huge momentum, we can create massive awareness with very low investment.. just a bit of time of each of us..

What think?

Bruce, can you create this facebook site, since you have already stared on this idea? " STOP PAYPAL, START BITCOIN"


N.B> perhaps we can go even further as a second step and say " STOP EBAY, START BIDDINGPOND", but we should wait until BITCOIN awareness and adoption is bigger, because currently biddingpond is too small.

Calling it a PP replacement makes it sound pretty narrow. It's a dollar and really all fiat replacement.

You can probably find people who hate PP so much that they'll leave the dollar too though. But you should make it clear that bitcoins aren't dollars like PP is dollars. Or else Jenny is going to send 40BTC for grandma to buy catfood with and it's going to be 18 cents short because of a tiny market move.

Someone could message everybody who has posted a comment (currently 3000+) making them aware of bitcoin.
O.k, who wants to risk losing their Facebook account because of spamming?  Wink
