Use Bitcoin: Send your money anywhere in the world, to anyone, for any reason, with no fees or strings attached

I respectfully disagree. Please don't spread false information about Bitcoin. use "Minimal" or "insignificant". But there is definitely "fees" involved for MOST transactions.

"At the moment, many transactions are typically processed in a way where no fee is expected at all"
"Transaction fees are voluntary on the part of the person making the bitcoin transaction"
"The transaction fee is therefore an incentive on the part of the bitcoin user to make sure that a particular transaction will get included into the next block"
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Transaction_fees

This is how I was assuming Bitcoin still worked. Moving forward we have to be careful as even the tiniest fees can be debilitating to those processing a large volume of micro-transactions. I think these tiny transactions will be a big part of the future of Bitcoin. But I'm still under the impression that money can be sent for free. Please correct me if I'm still wrong.



Ok, more informative guys please correct me if I got this wrong. If you go to any "new" transaction on blockchain.info you will see an estimation for the first confirmation. The position in the queue to be confirmed is determined (or estimated) by how big the transaction is (Size wise and not amount wise). considering how large the fees included are, plus both how old is this transaction and how much the included fees are.

This means even though a transaction was made before another, The older transaction might be pushed back in the queue because it has no fees included or low fees. This queuing mechanism is not infinite and on the times where alot of people are making transactions a no fee transaction might take a very long time and sometimes (Yes it happened alot and to me personally a few times) this transaction might not happen at ALL, Especially if that transaction was big (Size wise and not amount wise).

The day where you simply cannot make a free transaction or a very low fee transaction is getting closer and closer but really don't sweat it Bitcoin is still light years away from being "Expensive" way to send money. (Please don't start the micro transaction cost guys, That is a VERY different story).

I hope this shed some light and please tell me if I am mistaken about something.

where E is Bitcoin, m is money, and c is the speed of light.


= $


Nice.

Where E is eCurrency (BTC/Bitcoin), m is money ($), and c is the speed of light.

BTC = $c2

I like it so much, it's going into my sig.

Amazingly, there are two quotes from this thread that's been in my sig ever since: The one above and Post #3 of this thread.

Bitcoin is money for smart people. You wouldn't be interested.

That is so cold, ouch.
Bitcoin is smart money for people who want an option that doesn't get destroyed by the Gov.

'But they [US] wont let it happen"

BTC'r ' answer

Quote
The USD has gone down near 1 million times since against btc in the last 5 years, what are 'they' going to do when the USD goes down another million in the next 5 years....and again after that.....'


[i know this is unlikely in the next 5 years to do another million, but it puts on the table even if wrong, by a few orders of magnitue, 'they' are still powerless]

Some bank slogans are more appropriate for Bitcoin (see "https://twitter.com/Bitcoin/status/448159065563078656/photo/1"):

HSBC BTCitcoin - The world's local bank

Wells Fargo BTCitcoin - Together we'll go far

Chase BTCitcoin - So you can

Citibank BTCitcoin never sleeps

...and last but not least:

Bank of America BTCitcoin - Life's better when we're connected

The absolute best one liner from non bitcoiners is," Bitcoin would never go past $1"

-grabs a handful of popcorn as I remember watching all those original skeptics of bitcoin squeal in horror as it reached $1200 in 2013- -yum-

Bitcoin: You can’t counterfeit the Bit; you don’t want to deal with common capers and the lawless. Don’t throw a fit, Obama just wants a peek inside your paper wallets. No one need fear, because Satoshi is here! Oh Nakamoto, you’re quite the hero. Mark Karpelès walked around downtown Tokyo[Toe-Key—OH-O]. What did he hope to find, what did he hope to find, while searching around outside? He walked over to ol’ Mt. Gox and pocketed 850,000 crypto-coins… B-I-T-C-OIN, B-I-T-C-OIN.

AND BITCOIN WAS ITS NAME-O.

But that’s not the end of our story, nope, not today, no. What happened to our old friend Mark Karpelès? Oh…

Mark Karpelès! Watch as he plays a game called “How To Snare a Bitmillionaire.” Yet from here, he declares and swears, that he was merely caught unawares, of just what was going on downstairs, to his wares. No, he was too busy pocketing his shares. Mt. Gox is worse than all the cartels—thanks a lot, Markie Mark. Ready your prayers and your affairs, Mister Mark Karpelès, because I’m meeting you at the thoroughfares, while I'm out there. I set off the flares; make sure your glares aren’t causing you to become even more impaired.

So, he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the fares, ye root up also the bears. Say your farewells, Mr. Mark Karpelès. You attempted repairs, and we watch while you blunder alone at home. Oh, but he yells and despairs as he's taken from there, “No! Not without my waifu’s underwear!” Anne Frankly while I did Nazi this coming, it has nonetheless brought tears to my eyes, regardless. Though many decide to acquiesce his largesse, despite the mess and less success—unless his waifu's caress makes one reassess and egress—Karpelès would repress to guess, unless success chose to transgress… he'd dress himself in none but the best and most obviously fresh, suggests his pretty pockets are filled with a certain address, loaded with all his assets, while his confidants try to annex the press. Indeed, oh yes. And to concluded this hairy-tale, as a lone sacrificial lamb of Mark's once said… “You just got Mt. Goxed, my friend.”

*** note, i had posted this as another thread but now believe it's better to post here.

I like to try to bring a smile to the face of the people with whom I am attempting to influence and I often struggle at doing so. However, there's this great tool called Open Source where the community gets together to accomplish amazing things so with that in mind... post your replies to critics and let the community have a go at building upon your witty retorts:

Example: Shit Bitcoin Fanatics Say, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reo7WbibxaQ

My own attempt on Reddit

[–]incisorcist 3 punti 1 giorno fa
The three gigantic bubbles, hacks, frauds, opposition of governments, etc that you mentioned- in what time period did that happen? Two years?
Less?
Your "currency", backed by the bright eyed myopia of naiveté, is unstable and doomed to failure.
The rest of us are watching a train wreck in slow motion, but we're normally used to doing it AFTER THE FACT. That's what makes this whole thing so fascinating-- you're still selling tickets for a ride.

***[–]ponziunit 1 punto 2 minutes ago
Personally, I will welcome you when you realize that the apparent train wreck is nothing more than the bitcoin locomotive clearing the tracks with the cowcatcher and that your viewpoint is that of a friend of the herd of corruption witnessing, yet not fully understanding the chaotic sight as an honest accounting plows through fakery and deceit. You will awake from this nightmare, and let me be the first to call out - Aaaaaaaaaaall abooooooard! Peace Train!

So Jesse Eisinger a Pulitzer-winning financial reporter and I'm not going to remain silent while he tries to crack jokes about my recently adopted "lifes biggest dream" am I? Anyway, if you believe my reply was witty enough pop over to reddit and give me an upvote please. Criticism welcomed (there's always an edit button).

Also, please share your favorite bitcoin fanatic saying in this thread for collaboration and critique Smiley

*** note about my reddit /handle PonziUnit - consider the 'ponzi unit' as the most speculative debtor, borrowing against price appreciation and who suddenly loses everything when price appreciation no longer covers interest on debts - the first domino of the collapse in other words. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyman_Minsky

Q: "bitcoin is used by hackers"
A: "well if hackers can't break the code and thus they trust it... shouldnt you also realise the security of bitcoin value is impressive"

Q: "who is the bitcoin creator and why cant we speak to him directly today"
A: "who invented paper money and why cant you speak to him today. in both cases it does not matter you can easily see the history and research and speak to any current value producers. the inventor is just a name in history"



Thanks! The hackers response I've been using. I had my own twist on it, 'bitcoin was forged in the foundry of hackers, scoundrels and idealists'. I'm borrowing that inventor of money reply.
