I mean, right now it's a joke but I see it slowly turning into reality.


ref: http://arstechnica.com/business/2014/01/new-bitcoin-billboards-preach-to-the-masses-in-san-francisco-bay-area/

is it not?

After all, isn't one of the rules of investing to start protecting your investment once it has been made?

So, if we can no longer trust the Bitcoin related media, should we tune in to AMTV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bdvu0U6S-nE

Cristopher Greene says "the government has heavily infiltrated the cryptocurrency market"

Fight fire with fire? Fight bitcoin with bitcoin? Not trying to be bear or anything, just playing the Devil's advocate here. Can pro bitcoin propaganda in some aspect do any harm? For example if people start thinking that Bitcoin related news all originate from the Bitcoin Foundation owned media?

This needs to be in the confirmed bad news thread  Grin - I'm sure proudhon will get that taken care of promptly.

On a serious note, I believe that the biggest threat to bitcoin is the Bitcoin Foundation itself.

This guy passing a randomly generated spam-ad does not seem to show any interest in it.
That is of course what everyone bypassing this ad will do.
