I think we've hit the bottom already at $11. This really saddens me because my dwolla money arrives tomorrow. I'm hoping it will hover here for a while. Long enough for be to buy at these great prices. But the fact that I feel these prices are great makes me think they will rise quickly, I can't be the only one.

Last week people were saying the exact same thing, except the price was $15 that looked like such a great deal.  You have time, quite a bit of time I would guess.  Bitcoin is still in its infancy, you're not going to "miss the boat" by being one day late to the game.

This discussion is very biassed. Even if all fiat currencies are experiencing a rally in terms of bitcoins why be negative about it? So the fiats are rallying, so what? How about RAM and MHz and MHash, are they rallying or crashing, in terms of, uh, whatever... bubblegum? Each other? Bandwidth? Etc.

Oh there is lots a new currency could bring, can't believe your so blind that you can't see the gaping flaws in the bitcoin system...here let me list a few off the top of my head (there are many more):

  • Decentralised exchange built into the actual program. The exchange fee could be reduced significantly and paid back directly to the miners.
  • Easier interface for non-geeks. Average people struggle just to setup a paypal account, hell even making a skype account is hard for a lot...paypal requires all this bank confirmation and direct debits to prove your identity. there needs to be a simple type in credit/debit card details to buy instantly system, that can be built right into the system itself automatically adjusting to the exchange rate.
  • Even buying/selling can be right inside the system too, much like comparing something like Napster/Kazaa/Limewire/iTunes to torrents, with those programs you could search for what you want in the program itself.
  • Instead of mining difficulty going up, there could be an increasing decay that motivates you to spend the currency instead of hoard it for profit, and actually use the currency for its intention instead of being this stupid speculative machine that bitcoin has become.
Provided no-one breaks the "fact" that a BiTCoin address you have the private key for is "yours" in any clone/fork (other than ones that break this convenience, which some people seem to be plotting planning or at least laying the groundwork for), you can easily be automatically sent some other currency to whatever address you sent from. So an exchange can be simply a bot that, for example, watches for BiTCoin coming in at its "BTC to MBC" address and for each BTC address that sends BTC to that address in the BTC network it sends the corresponding/exchanged amount of Martian BotCoin on the Martian BotCoin network. And vice versa, and for all pairs of currencies using compatible addresses.

Tip: don't start your comments with an insult. I'll address your points:

1) A decentralized exchange is a great idea, but doesn't need to be built into the actual client. That would in fact complicate and weaken the core of bitcoin. Exchanges and other services are properly built around the core of Bitcoin, not as part of the core because their existence isn't necessary for Bitcoin operations at the most basic level. To use an exaggerated example, it would be silly to build in a fancy graphical charting software into the core client, even though such a thing would be useful. Keep the client small, clean, and pure. The rest can be built beyond it.

2) An easier interface would be great, and of course it's probably being planned as we speak. But the current interface is not a flaw with Bitcoin as a protocol per se, it's just an aesthetic issue (and the client is still in beta, remember).

3) Buying/selling functionality inside the client? Again, see point 1. This of course doesn't preclude an alternative client from being release which offers this benefit - but that's not a competitor to bitcoin as a protocol.

4) Regarding your "motivation to spend currency," that is a philosophical/economic difference that you and myself have. I believe it is economically foolish and misguided to "encourage" spending for spending's sake because it interferes with pricing signals. If a new bitcoin competitor came along that had a mechanism to encourage spending (like "decay!!!"), I'd stay the hell away from it but you're welcome to abandon Bitcoin for that if you wish.  You share your view with Obama, Keynes, Geithner, and Krugman. I share my view with Rothbard, Mises, and Hayak.

Only your last point is relevant to the Bitcoin protocol itself, and that's a philosophical difference. If you have other, better, reasons why a competitor would destroy Bitcoin, please present them.

So my guess was $10.50


The answer was $11.



I would have lost if this were The Price Is Right.

People were quick to call it a "crash" when it went from 17 to 15, so I don't think this is early at all.

I get paid on Wednesdays, every two weeks. Paycheck came in today, so not surprised it started going up again. Since it tends to go down a bit on weekends, I expect my Dwolla transfer won't complete until Monday. Last paycheck was during the MtGox crash. I didn't get to buy until Mtgox reopened and the price went up from $13.50 to $16.50. Before that my money got stuck in Dwolla during their issues, so I couldn't buy during the $30 to $10 crash, either, only being able to buy when it went back up to $18. It's been pretty consistent.

I know what you mean. I had never heard of Dwolla until I opened a Mt. Gox account. Its taken me about a week to get everything cleared though. But 1-3 days and I'm ready to starting trading.  Smiley
