Yes, and this time "Bitcoin" is sitting next to "Ron Paul" and "Wikileaks" in the article header.
So it is probably going to get hot soon.

True.  I'd say we may already see this as we can see an other surge for the keyword "bitcoin" in google trends :

If you change the graph to show only DEC 2010 it looks like we exceed a search index volume of 10. The previous slashdotting didn't get it quite that high.

The first slashdotting is higher than of the second slashdotting attempt.

Did you change the timline to DEC 2010? I think in the big graph it is getting averaged down and we won't see it on that one for another week or something.

I confirm. It is at least the same high, or higher.

It would have been nice to get this attention in any other context.  WikiLeaks has kicked the hornet's nest, and the swarm is headed towards us.


and they never heard anything from him again.......

*thread resurrection

Satoshi's second to last post, so this article scared him off? http://www.pcworld.com/article/213230/could_wikileaks_scandal_lead_to_new_virtual_currency.html

Bruce Wagner standing up for Bitcoin in the thread brings a tear to the eye, whatever happened to him? Only 1 post in a couple of years to pick up some free ripples - priceless  Grin

Sorry for bumping this old thread. I find this post of satoshi very intriguing. It is one of the few posts of him that is not about coding. If i interpreter this right we could say that we could throw away all the theories about bitcoin being secretly launched by some government. What are your thoughts?

edit: And indeed that he got scared because of this and backed off.

Doesn't follow logically as the only possible explanation.

I had seen this post before and had the following thought.

To maintain his anonymity he would want to bail out before the popularity would increase those trying to hack his anonymity methods.

I think your interpretation is spot on. In retrospect, Satoshi seems to have predicted something (even collectors) to start the increase of value. And he was obviously politically privacy-inclined.  But my guess is the speed with which WikiLeaks seems to have discovered Bitcoin startled him.

Forgive my petulance and oft-times, I fear, ill-founded criticisms, and forgive me that I have, by this time, made your eyes and head ache with my long letter. But I cannot forgo hastily the pleasure and pride of thus conversing with you.

The problem with Wikileaks is that it draws the attention from the NSA and other organisations very keen to follow the trail of funding.

Privacy and anonymity is not 100% guaranteed and the increased surveillance is what made him disappear. I don't think he was in it for the $.

https://words.democracy.earth/follow-the-bitcoin-wikileaks-f2218dece347

It had the unfortunate effect of politicizing bitcoin. It may have led to more public exposure but also carried risks.

In July 2015, Wikileaks wallet was the target of what in Bitcoin lingo is called a “flood attack” or “dust attack”. The amount of dust for this huge attack was worth 30 BTC (or U$D 8,000 at the time).

It demonstrates the extend of what some people are prepared to do.

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.
