INCOMING FLOOD. BUY NOW

Let me take the opportunity to also plug this thread.

-----------------

As per this and this post, me & dissipate have setup a new site:

http://bitcoin.cz.cc

You propose features for Bitcoin. The front page shows a mix of the most donated proposals (10) and newest ones (5). Once the feature is implemented in Bitcoin then the bounty goes to the author and the proposal is deleted.

Think of it as an experiment into future methods for bitcoin based free software dev. Right now I'm just putting it out there to see what happens. If it grows then we can think about turning it into a bug tracker type thing with tickets, comments, statuses, assignment of tickets and search.

Pandora’s box opened once again.

1. Buy Bitcoins
2. Submit Article to Slashdot
3. Sell Bitcoins
4. Huh?
5. Profit!

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

Wow this news had a profound impact on the market alone. Very exciting to have someone from Google on board.

The comments are very disappointing. Slashdot, Hacker News and Reddit like to think that they are smarter than 4chan but apparently they are not.

Agreed. And nothing is changed from summer slashdotting - discussion about same things without moving to depth or to new ideas.

I'd attribute that to only a small portion of people commenting, and the majority of them being new people who didn't see it last time.

There's a lot of people on the internet, don't worry, people are learning Wink

Most commenting on the internet is negative as it is easier to bash something than to contribute.

No, because as soon as people found out that someone was buying up all the bitcoins they would hold out and wait for the price to go sky high.

Even if they did, they wouldn't get control over the network, just the price temporarily. You have to remember as of now there's almost 3/4 more of BitCoins still to be issued.
