Unfortunately the more popular this gets the more scammers are going to come out of the woodwork, they always are looking for the next opportunity so you can never be to paranoid.

I believe you still have to trust some one, but the amount can depend on how much you trust them. If you just trust them a little, then trust them ONE bitcoin.

You must always trust someone to some level.  Its all about risk.  Only trust them with as much risk as you are willing to take.

Yes, but don't be too angstly, otherwise you'll accomplish nothing.

As a newbie, the fact that I am taking the time to read this article and respond to it is definitely proof-of-work.
So proof-of-work is the mechanism used to filter out noise on the forum I guess.
I wish the proof-of-work could be derivative of BTC or another proof-of-work network, however, and not need to be repeated every time you wish to join a forum? (see my other post today)

Luckily the trust-no-one argument is an interesting, so at least the work is pleasurable..

Consider the list...

""Do you know their full name?
Do you know where they are located?
Have they demonstrated trustworthiness in the past?
Are they asking you to trust them? (red flag)
Do they have insurance?""

is this not a list of symptoms of an anonymous culture (akin to being a the airport in the RW?)

Perhaps a fully fledged peer-to-peer trust network with persistent identity could be used to establish trust between two nodes without them having access to all the above information about someone?

If we as a digital culture adopt the above check-list will we not have the opposite of a a free society, but instead a peer-to-peer surveillance society?

I only read the posts on the first page.  I don't agree with the "Trust no one" approach.  But perhaps treating your bitcoin like money is enough said.  Don't go dump all your bitcoin in a site just because they say they're honest and legit.  Check them out, do some research.  Find out what other people are saying about that site.  Etc. 

Like it was said earlier, for this market to grow and be successful you have to trust someone.  But that's not to say there aren't bad people out their trying to steal your bitcoins, so just be aware of what you're doing.

Agreed. It's also possible I'm not actually a sock puppet. So perhaps I'm not really as trustworthy as I claim...

This was a really great thread for a newbie like myself.  Thanks for posting.  I obviously need to do some more investigating regarding bitcoin security.  Embarrassed
