Big government types who are only here to help you out!

"help yout out"; right.

HELP YOU RIGHT OUT OF BUSINESS!

Halfwits!



Why did you quote me, halfwit? Nothing you said was relevant to what I said.

Sorry, I was not callng YOU a halfwit and used the quote feature only to attempt to maintain continuity of the thread.  As you ca see, I deleted the post but stand by my assertion that those who attempt to establish any kind of organised authority over cryptocurrency are defeating one of the very foundations of that currency as authority means control.

Mea Culpa!

I should have been more clear first time 'round!

LostDutchman,

Thank you for updating your post.

No one is trying create "an Authority OVER cryptocurrency".  If you understood the technology of the decentralized ledger of bitcoin you would realize that is not possible.  Bitcoin is disintermediation on steroids.

DATA is merely a group of bitcoin businesses who are saying that its members are planning to operate their businesses accourding to the laws of their countries as they understand them  and to ask for clarity when those laws and regulation are not clear.  

Pretty simple.

Also if you could do some research you can see that regulation is doing little to slow the bitcoin economy:

According to Jeff Garzik's http://bitcoinwatch.com/

In the last 24 hours there have been:
55,879 Transactions (2328.29 per hour!)
749,510.38 BTC SENT (31,229.60 BTC per hour)

That is $76,225,205.65 USD at current Mt Gox USD price.

The bitcoin money supply is also currently larger then the GDP of 25 of the worlds countries.

There are laws and regulations in each of our contrives that exist now with relation to virtual currencies regardless of what some of the geniuses on this forum thinks and there are SERIOUS consequences for not obeying these laws EVEN IF YOU ARE IGNORANT OF THEM.

If only Wall St. and Washington were more respectful of the laws, your vociferous endorsements of a corrupt system might ring less hollow. In other news, the NSA is unconstitutionally collecting all of your on-line data. Maybe they need "educating" also? You'd think lawyers would have plenty to keep themselves busy besides virtual currencies in MMPOGs .... basically, get a life.

Totally agree

What is happening as we sit here in the US govt should be brought to light, then bring all of these rogue govt personnel into court for prosecution for failing to uphold their oaths to uphold the US constitution

Then throw them all into Leavenworth

I completely understand your position and thank you for understanding mine.

Not possible for governments to control crypto?

Wanna bet?

How about the USA govt or any govt anyplace on the planet decides that since crypto cannot be controlled, crypto simply gets shut down?

The USA feds have a strong history of domain seizure and any or all of the exchanges and the sites of the cryptocurrencies themselves could be shout down literally by the push of a button and the right software.  They have done it already (See Megaupload for example) and as soon as they figure out that there is no real way to tax crypto, they will hammer away at it until there is.

The NSA could use Narus software to track down every miner on the planet if they haven't already.

Crypto was designed and intended to be an essentially underground economic system and should remain that way.

My $.02.

That's not happening any time soon.

If it is any consolation, in the US some of the culprits in the financial crisis are finally being prosecuted.

This is something I agree with. Bitcoin is supposed to be the economic system some day.

file sharing has not ended movie rentals

iTunes has not ended CD sales

email has not ended the post office.

YET.

So don't expect digital currency to replace fiat anytime soon

but it is a pretty slick alternative and the more people learn about it the quicker the economy will grow.

Look for extensive use first in
-international remittance
-on line payments

much work has to be done on the UI and the payments protocol.

I'm very much looking forward to bitcoin v. 0.8.9 if they can implement BIP 70

True. But currency is very different from those examples. It is the most important commodity. There won't be two somewhat equally used forms of currency around, like with CDs and iTunes. There will either be one or the other.

And email won't end the post office. You can't email a package.  Wink

I think many have forgotten:

"Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system."

http://bitcoin.org/en/

Stop opening the doors for government control!

My $.02!

But you can send VIA UPS or FEX EX both successful private forms of package delivery.

Bitcoin too is a private currency.  It is very possible that there emerges bot a public and private payment systems.

LostDutchMan what you fail to understand is that NO ONE  opened doors to government control.  Laws currently exist with regards to the transmission and use of  currency.  FinCEN only clarified that with their March 18 Guidance. 

Now you may not think that is fair, or it may not be right, but you can not deny that it exists. 

And that guidance was handed down without any effort by DATA or the Bitcoin Foundation or anyone else.

What DATA is trying to do is prevent more doors from being closed.

I suggest you research the pre-paid card industry.  They faced similar regulation and now you can find rack of them hanging in every Walmart, K-Mart, Wallgreens, CVS etc.   And if that industry did not interact with the government and regulators through the Network Branded Prepaid Card Association (http://www.nbpca.com/) that would currently not currently be the case.

yes Private.  (well they may be publicly traded)
But the point being is that they are successful in that they operate within the boundaries of law.  Even if that law requires them to co-operate with government investigations.

Sorry.  This is unfortunately the world we live in. You certainly don't have to participate. Any many choose not to.

You're welcome!

As far as I know this is still a free country and there are plenty of people exercising their civil liberties with out too much government intervention.  

Here are two more sites you should know about:

http://freestateproject.org/

http://porcfest.com/

And here is a great libertarian radio station.
