Atlas, why do you care about the price of bit coins?  If they are a currency, the only thing that should matter is that their value remain stable enough for vendors to use them.  Why do you want to encourage a pump and dump by getting a large influx of new users with nowhere to spend the bit coins?

Atlas, why do you care about the price of bit coins?  If they are a currency, the only thing that should matter is that their value remain stable enough for vendors to use them.  Why do you want to encourage a pump and dump by getting a large influx of new users with nowhere to spend the bit coins?

I suspect that the survivalist types will find ways to spend Bitcoins on purchases they want kept "off the radar", but I doubt they'll be supporters of the exchanges or any other Bitcoin business which keeps records of their purchases and/or identity - so I'm not sure that they'll do much to shore up falling prices on the exchanges.

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

They are also the crowd they are because they are fully invested in the world going up in flames any day now, ie: power grid failures, which would kill the internet, and make bitcoins worthless. That is the very reason why they buy gold/silver and seeds and not digital cash.

I echo that. Alex Jones should have been brought into this sooner. They are the kinds of people that fit the average Bitcoin user profile.

Aren't they also the type to already be on government watch lists and to bring unwanted government scrutiny to Bitcoin?

If you're not on a government watch list by now you're a complete pussy.

Unremorsefully, I am highly invested in them but I would get most of my pleasure from seeing them take off in adoption and threaten the centralized banking regimes that litter our world with conflict.

Immanuel, at what price did you invest in Bitcoins?

Alex reaches millions of people that are sick of the Federal Reserve.  If you stay away from the cryptography and the mining, and focus only on the reasons WHY people USE bitcoins, you'll have a good discussion that won't go off on tangents.

About a $1.50. That's all I will say.

It seems that you made a massive error by not selling at $30, does it not?

Unremorsefully,

Between here and your little performance in the SA thread, I've seen you start sentences with the word "Unremorsefully" a good 8-10 times in the last day. But never before then.

You have a really shitty word of the day calendar, Atlas.

This thread cracks me up. People are actually pleading for someone not to "ruin" Bitcoin. You guys put way too much faith in a 17 year old blowhard calling up a radio station. Bitcoin is already looked at poorly by ignorant consumers because of e-gold and the massive explosion of online currencies and payment methods available.

Merchant services, corporate solutions. People with money are the ones who will help bring adoption to Bitcoin, not more talentless hippies.

yeah well..  I'm not entirely sure he could 'ruin' bitcoin.. but bringing that crowd in could probably make it even more unpleasant while we're on the way to wherever it is we're going, and maybe even stretch out the timeline a bit.

(isn't *1* bitrebel more than enough??)

I knew I shouldn't have gone to bed last night, rainingbitcoins. Remorsefully, I wanted to post this.

Did Rarity uncover A's net worth? Was so nervous when he replied to the question, he spelled "at" incorrectly.

Anybody here remember Mr. Widget on Art Bell's show years ago? Sometimes a radio host will continue airing a weekly guess on the show for entertainment value, alone. I was using Mr. W. as an example, for he proved to scam people later on, but my premise Remains The Same (led Z.). Can you image Atlas on the Alex Jones show at least once a week? Or how about Mancow? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNpvLR2dP5Q

Hey guys just popping in from reddit to say that the majority of bitcoin users, boosters, detractors and bystanders have already left this forum behind. So if you think this is a good idea or a bad idea don't worry too much about it, nothing is going to get accomplished by this kind of thing because nobody who matters is still here to do anything about it.

Enjoy your increasing and irreversible irrelevance. It's ponzi-scheming price fixations like this that made this forum the single worst place on the internet to realistically discuss bitcoin.

I personally don't care much for overt attempts at marketing bitcoin.  More often than not they don't work and sometimes backfire.  The best way to make bitcoin successful is to simply use it and keep making it better.  It's also not about the exchange rate...the reason people should want bitcoin to be a success is to facilitate digital transactions using a more sound money while preserving people's right to transaction privacy.

Yes but price is related to how many people use it.

If the price drops it means less people use bitcoins.

He was just talking about a movie where the protagonist could see the aliens taking over the local political scene... as long as he was wearing his sunglasses.  Muwahaha.
