"Using Bitcoin does to the big banks what e-mail does to the Postal Service."

http://m.ibtimes.com/u-s-postal-service-first-class-mail-donahoe-congress-214545.html

Quote
"We simply need fewer facilities to process less mail," Megan Brennan, said chief operating officer of the Postal Service.
 
The postal service has experienced fast decline in First Class mail due to the Internet, as more people use e-mail and online bill pay instead. In the last five years, for example, First Class mail volume has dropped 25 percent. Single-piece first class mail -- letters and such sent with a stamp -- has declined 50 percent in the past decade.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Bitcoin. Full-SHA encrypted.  No back doors.
Secure digital money.  Swiss bank accounts for the millions.

Bitcoin is the world's most powerful computing network. It's harder to hack than any bank in the world.

You can use Bitcoin to buy [their vice] secretly, without giving away personal information on the internet.

Bitcoin will do to bank executives what the internet did to travel agents.

Bitcoin is borderless electronic cash - anyone in any country can send and receive bitcoins without signing up anywhere or opening an account.


(ok - so the merchant part, and exchange to local currency part aren't quite there on a global scale - but it gives an idea of the potential.)

I seem to encounter a lot of really profoundly nontechnical people (which is odd, since I live in the Bay area and am a professional geek but I just don't cultivate a ton of geek social connections for whatever reason). I tell lay people:

Quote
"these days the biggest supercomputer in the world is Bitcoin"

whenever I do this I always feel guilty for not saying

Quote
"these days the distributed computer system with the most processing power is Bitcoin."

but if I said that they would hear: (in a nasal, condescending tone)

Quote
"it's common knowledge that today the most powerful discombobulated hyper-processing aparatus in terms of decagigadefenestrations is, of course, the P9783.419 Microsupergigaperambulator which as everybody knows is being offered by Confusosoft as a metahypomux of the ultracombowhatsit.'"

So I just keep it simple.

Bitcoin is the money that people used back in the year 2200, just before we moved to space.
