Bitcoin is the new geek accessory

Given all the abandoned assets on Second Life - for which many people paid real money - I'm not sure that being a geek accessory is a good thing.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

Did you read the article yet? http://nwn.blogs.com/nwn/2011/07/edward-castronova-bitcoin.html?

This blog post is so inane that it's only effect will be to discourage the people whom we don't want in yet anyway.  I bought some BTC with linden dollars two months ago and I am still way ahead for doing so, even after the crash.

Wow, that's probably the first such blog post I actually felt compelled to respond to. Hope you enjoyed reading it. Smiley
