Soren Renner, please stop pitching to the stupidest people in the room.  Thank You, Sir.

Also, please buy a few hundred bitcoins of Apollo and then dump it at a near 100% loss (.00000006 to .00000012 would be good) so the tens of millions of we non rent-collecting white peons out here can buy Apollo cheaply for a few weeks or months.  If you won't do it, ask James. Don't you bitcoin gentry have any benevolent comMUNity hobbies?  Pretty soon he'll have to upgrade to a 94 or 95 Saturn.  Maybe Warren Buffet 100 miles away in Omaha will buy his old 93 Saturn ride.  

When I hit Eureka, Montana in 2010, walking in from Roosville, BC and further, my feet were so swollen, I could barely walk, so I stayed in a motel kaddy corner from a casino on the north side of town.  Two days later, about 18 or 22 miles south, a couple picked me up.  I wasn't hitchhiking-- just walking south.  The insisted I ride.  I stayed at their home in Kalispell a night, where I met their 29 year old son who had done 8 years for crystal meth distribution.  He'd been sentenced for a high level of distribution as a very young guy, and had been out only a year or so.  He told me the story.  Turned out he had, as a prisoner, been assigned at Florence, CO, the big supermax...as a prisoner trustee, in a separate prison on the grounds.  That was interesting.  The criminal classes ability to think differently has always fascinated me.  I guess, in the technical and legal sense, I am one, albeit only having been in county jails.

Anyway, it must have been a lot of meth. He told me.  I forgot.  But I do recall his account of there being no windows in Florence's cells, and particularly, that the showers in Florence move on some type of hydraulic system built into the floor and twice or thrice a week (I think just twice) the showers move in that conveying floor monstrosity and clank-bolt in front of each man's cell so he can enter the shower directly from the cell.  Then they move on.

I thought of this last night, as the Luddite Ted Kaczynski is there.  That prison is considered barbaric.  It seems I read Ted's IQ is 155, 157-- something like that.  Not googling it; just memory.  I think James is smarter.  

Some are saying bitcoin will go to $1200 or $1500 in the coming months.  I hope so.  These corrupt govts are killing young people, particularly the USA govt is preventing the young Millennials from enjoying their peak years-- women, wives, families, houses, autos.  Their massive gen should be enjoying the relative wealth boomers had, at least we somewhat did in some measures for a while.  Some of us.  

More young people need to acquire cryptos-- maybe like the ones I've mentioned several times, Insolar https://www.insolar.io/community.html , Smarc https://smartcontainers.ch/en/ , Hedera Hashgraph, Holochain, Radix DLT, Hydro (a fintech already-working project) PIVX  et. al.   Used to like NEO, but they aren't moving fast enough with goals, though they have plenty of Falun Gong/Amway-type international meet-ups.

I wouldn't buy Zcash, the Israeli professors' coin which can mint more whenever they push the button or Beam, also a pvt. Jewish coin.

It is hard for me to see how emotionality, tradition, and a proven (aged though not totally antiquated) crypto such as bitcoin will pokily propel itself through time.  It would be like Model A or Model T Fords prevailing through the 1960's.  Almost everyone in crypto disagrees though.

I don't think the person you are trying to dox, even if he really exists, is a bitcoin whale. I myself am CERTAINLY not a hidden BTC mogul. But I think I do now see what you are trying to do. You used to be friends with these people and now they have "abandoned you" (this is your petulant thought) -- so if you post these vague threats and mention them by name, they will find this thread, take pity on you and invest in your crypto scheme. After all, they are wealthy now! It is proven by the fact that they dropped you socially!

Also: If Uncle Ted's IQ is 155, then yes, JAB is smarter.

I have no illusions anyone I know is going to sell bitcoin.  It is merely humor.

I do think Apollo may overtake bitcoin.  I hope so.  It is a more efficient, must faster and private model of crypto.  I understand it was predicated on bitcoin, just as bitcoin was predicated on the 1995 blockchain of photos which was created.

Satoshi Nakamoto has never been willing to sell me bitcoin.  He told me a few times he "didn't have very many".  He did give me ten though, on January 12, 2009.  That is what I have.  That history.  He traded it off over the years.

I also do believe he was one of the primary techs-- maybe the main or sole 'outside' tech-- of Mt. Gox, and most probably also of a slew of the other earliest bitcoin exchanges.  There are a considerable number of people who know the answers to this question--even if James, as he is wont to do, was using a fake name in some cases-- and may be reading or soon to read this thread.  I would guess James was usually paid in bitcoin by most of those exchanges.  For the guy who invented bitcoin and holds more than anyone in the world, he surely has a bitcoin jones.  

Bitcoin has held pretty steady between 52% and 55% of market, a market which is today just $120,451,000,000.  

I am sorry James didn't get you to generate bitcoins, Soren Hans Renner of Franklin, Maine.  I don't believe you.

Do you think it's possible for James to have more or less singlehandedly driven the price of bitcoin in any direction he pleased since 2009?  I do.
After buying cheap for years and having his original million, he could have liquidated large quantities (say, at $19,000+) converted to tether, and then dumped it, buying again when it hits $3300, $1500, $1200 or what have you.  That is the most extreme example; other examples would just involve less extraordinary buy and sell rates. Maybe only doing this "many days"? Still fun and controlling in the infinite.

Now that the world knows who Satoshi Nakamoto is, investors have this to consider.  You may all be jumping to James' invisible daily tumbler tunes!

I have read a communist bitcoin cadre kind of controls the twitter bitcoin major conversation drifts.  Is this true?  That's pretty bad when the commies snag a right wing coin.  That's the breaks.

Quote
At the time of Satoshi’s e-mail, difficulties would have been far lower. Block 10, which was mined 10 years ago today, had a difficulty of just 1.

Satoshi Nakamoto said, on January 8th, 2009:

Quote
You can get coins by getting someone to send you some, or turn on Options->Generate Coins to run a node and generate blocks. I made the proof-of-work difficulty ridiculously easy to start with, so for a little while in the beginning a typical PC will be able to generate coins in just a few hours. It’ll get a lot harder when competition makes the automatic adjustment drive up the difficulty.
https://www.ccn.com/bitcoin-10-years-ago-satoshi-nakamoto-announced-first-version/

From James' twitter motto:

Quote
A few σ out.
https://twitter.com/jabowery

One of the definitions of 'σ':

Quote
The number 200,000 in Greek numerals.

From moving the bitcoin markets, even at a tremendous loss when necessary?

Yesterday, the attractive 25yo native West Virginian boss where I sometimes do manual labour (labor with a "u"-- the Satoshi effect) told me her grandfather had given her half a bitcoin which she still has. She showed it to me in her wallet on her phone, though I didn't have my reading glasses on. He had taken to investments after suffering a major, life-changing car accident and receiving a huge settlement.  She herself had bad, crazy dope hound parents, yet somehow managed to become just the opposite of them. Quite admirable and surprising.

Then, shortly after my last post, in which I quoted Satoshi's January 8th message (a less usual date in the public narrative) I recalled James telling in that very general time frame-- January 8th, 2009 to the actual send, January 12th, 2009-- people would "get someone to send them some", or use the "generate coins" [function].  Huh? This struck me as humourous (my Canadian mysterious Commonwealth spelling again) as nobody or next to nobody had any.  I voiced this thought then. Of course, as mentioned, my Generate Coins function wouldn't work. More happenstace 'funniness'. Tough luck, eh?  Like antifa and Africans, and urban Syrian Jew Charlie Shrem playing with bitcoin-- becoming a mega-millionaire, not just humanly warm (not living in a hole in the ground through a Montana winter) or with food...some gotta win, some gotta lose, goodtime Winston Smith has the blues. You gotta understand, it was conceptual, not $3577 per, ha.  Why would anybody send anybody any? After a little friendly back and forth parlay,  James felt obliged to prove up his theory and sent it.  The big 10.  I even told him, you are the only person I know with bitcoin, if even you have any. He claimed to have gotten it for 2 cents, 3 cents, and 4 cents the coin.  The competitive vagaries of the bidding market in his mind's eye imagination on January 12th, 2009.

A faceless person called Satoshi Nakamoto has bagged a rank among the world’s top 100 global finance leaders, leaving well-known personalities like Mark Zuckerberg, Kristalina Georgieva, and Paul Krugman behind.

Worth.com has named Satoshi Nakamoto the 44th most powerful individual in finance.

It is a great resume and this is worth noting. I know that the concept of blockchain which Satoshi and his team gave to the world is innovative as it cuts across the whole facets of human endeavour.

I concur, but James not bullish on helping the cited groups, and I support him in that. It was unavoidable residual.  Would he be stoked the Israeli profs made Zcash which has a built-in ability to be clicked for more Zcash?  I doubt it.  He actually spoke well in a social media post for Monero a couple of years ago.

Blockchain was invented in 1995 as I understand it, with a series of NYT photos having been strung. In a blockchain.  Satoshi Bowery mightily proved the monetary methodology.  Apollo seems to have successfully built upon his historic proving ground.

somehow Satoshi identity discussion has turned into the goat simulator advertising  Grin
I'm pretty sure Satoshi Nakamoto is not  a single individual, but rather a group of people
could be wrong, but I have had this hunch for quite some time
but even if his identity is revealed and proved I can't see how can this change anything at all
other than tickle some curiosity bones around the world


Tomorrow on Ellen, Satoshi Goatamoto ...



"I met Satoshi Goatamoto at an undisclosed barn in the Midwest and he proved to me beyond doubt that he's the real Satoshi."


"Somethin' doesn't add up!"


"Back from visiting my mother ship, signal theory dictates that if it smells like a goat, walks likes a goat and fucks like a goat, then it's not an alpaca."

Thanks for the merits, guys.

Back on-topic, I don't concur with dt's assessment but won't diss him for his beliefs. Further, unless his diatribes are too far out there, I do enjoy the reads.

Thanks.  A very enjoyable thread.

Satoshi Nakamoto, the founder of this forum, is super C++ coder, James Allen Bowery, 64, of Shenandoah, Iowa.

https://twitter.com/jabowery

He used to work for Control Data Corporation which morphed into [Robert] Cray [Supercomputers].  He has been programming since 1972.

I hope this helps.

Most enjoyable post I've seen in existence on here.

AGD, despite your attractive, incisive, confidence-inspiring Charlie Manson avatar, I noticed your AGD member-listing on an early screen shot of Satoshi's posting on this forum.

So you've acquired bitcoin at an early price, and would have a lot to lose, were the investing public to sweepingly consider James' sole ability to move its price.

Apart from many having autistic inclinations and being on the hoarding spectrum, I don't really fully understand how you autists think-- I suppose
it is like a Millennial's watching fake news on CNN or MSNBC-- 'it must be true if it's on leftist corporate TV.'  You seem truly incredulous Satoshi isn't actually (couldn't possibly be other than?) a relatively young exotica Japanese from the 200-mile-across Tokyo megalopolis or one of the hackneyed suspects unoriginally and ever-echoed by the net press.  Anybody can be a journalist; it is a craft, not an art.  

Is that a photo of James Satoshi Bowery circa 1974?  Looks like James.

... President Vladimir Putin raised the matter directly with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

 ... According to media reports, BTC-e processed $66 million worth of anonymous transactions every day at its peak in June 2017.
In Vinnik’s indictment, the exchange is described as “one of the primary ways by which cybercriminals around the world transferred, laundered and stored the criminal proceeds of their illegal activities.”

Vinnik, who according to Russian media reports was recently hospitalized after going on a hunger strike, could spend 55 years behind bars if convicted of all the US charges against him.

Vinnik’s odyssey through the US, Russian, Greek, and French legal systems began in sunny Chalkidiki, Greece, in July 2017. His annual family vacation there slammed to a halt with his arrest at the hands of some 20 plainclothes police officers.

Vinnik, then 37, was known in the murky world of Moscow digital currency exchangers as “Sasha WME.” According to a 21-count US indictment unsealed by the Northern District of California the day after his arrest, he was an online money launderer and the brains behind the now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange known as BTC-e, once one of the world’s largest.

Vinnik was apprehended on the beach of the Avaton Luxury Villas Resort hotel, where the most extravagant suite runs more than $1,000 a night. Police seized five mobile phones, four credit cards, two laptops, two tablets, a 256-gigabyte thumb drive, and a router. He had apparently kept up with the office even on vacation.

And it was a busy office. US prosecutors estimate Vinnik helped launder between $4 billion and $9 billion in bitcoin tied to cybercrime, drug trafficking, public corruption, and tax refund fraud schemes.

(What is BitCoin? Click here to read.)

The Russian cyber-espionage group known as Fancy Bear was among BTC-e’s clients, according to the blockchain forensics company Elliptic, and US prosecutors allege Fancy Bear in turn used bitcoin to fund hacking the Democratic National Committee. US prosecutors have alleged in 2018 that Fancy Bear is actually part of the GRU, the acronym for Russian military intelligence, while other security firms and experts speculate the group works in cooperation with the GRU.

No actually but its not a bad idea.

Furthermore, people should be able to spend 10 of their own sMerits to delete one of somebody else's merits... with no limit. So theoretically a Legendary could be ranked back down to Newbie, but it would cost a minimum of 10,000 sMerits.

Vinnik’s odyssey through the US, Russian, Greek, and French legal systems began in sunny Chalkidiki, Greece, in July 2017. His annual family vacation there slammed to a halt with his arrest at the hands of some 20 plainclothes police officers.

Vinnik, then 37, was known in the murky world of Moscow digital currency exchangers as “Sasha WME.” According to a 21-count US indictment unsealed by the Northern District of California the day after his arrest, he was an online money launderer and the brains behind the now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange known as BTC-e, once one of the world’s largest.

Vinnik was apprehended on the beach of the Avaton Luxury Villas Resort hotel, where the most extravagant suite runs more than $1,000 a night. Police seized five mobile phones, four credit cards, two laptops, two tablets, a 256-gigabyte thumb drive, and a router. He had apparently kept up with the office even on vacation.

And it was a busy office. US prosecutors estimate Vinnik helped launder between $4 billion and $9 billion in bitcoin tied to cybercrime, drug trafficking, public corruption, and tax refund fraud schemes.

The Russian cyber-espionage group known as Fancy Bear was among BTC-e’s clients, according to the blockchain forensics company Elliptic, and US prosecutors allege Fancy Bear in turn used bitcoin to fund hacking the Democratic National Committee. US prosecutors have alleged in 2018 that Fancy Bear is actually part of the GRU, the acronym for Russian military intelligence, while other security firms and experts speculate the group works in cooperation with the GRU.

Satoshi is dead and pandoras box has been opened already. JB is not Satoshi - not because I don't want him to be the Bitcoin creator (actually I don't know him and I don't care what political view he has), but because you didn't provide any proof of your allegations. You just keep posting random stuff to make it look, like you are actually trying to provide some proof, but i reality you are just spamming this forum with things you just found out on the internet. The BTC-E story is old and many people know it already. Has nothing to do with Satoshi Nakamoto, only that both have a Bitcoin history.

Bitcoin is not a bubble, it's the pin!

Thanks.  A very enjoyable thread.

Satoshi Nakamoto, the founder of this forum, is super C++ coder, James Allen Bowery, 64, of Shenandoah, Iowa.

https://twitter.com/jabowery

He used to work for Control Data Corporation which morphed into [Robert] Cray [Supercomputers].  He has been programming since 1972.

I hope this helps.

Most enjoyable post I've seen in existence on here.
Thanks for the laugh! Cheesy
NAh. if it was that person did he make a public appearance and confirming this claim? I am not believing unless one will make a public appearance and confirm the identity. FOr sure, it will become a great rally for bitcoin market price knowing the founder has already been identified to which it could build up confidence among the investors of bitcoin.

Satoshi Bowery, January 17th, 2019, 4:23 PM Central, to his mother, on his first meeting Chris Langan

who lives around 100 miles or so away in northwest Missouri:

James Bowery:

Quote
By the way, the first time he and I met in person, I said:

"So you smart, huh? I though yo' haid'd be biggah."

That's when I tried to put my hat -- one of the few that fits me because it was dad's -- on his head and it fell off like one of those little clown hats.

Quote
... Christopher Michael Langan (born March 25, 1952) is an American independent scholar known for his claim of having a very high IQ.[1] In an interview, Errol Morris on First Person in 2001, related that his IQ is "somewhere between 190 and 210". As a result of his supposed score, he has been described as "the smartest man in America" as well as "the smartest man in the world" by some journalists.[2]

... Langan attended high school but found himself spending his last years engaged mostly in independent study, due to relative indifference of his teachers in accommodating his pleas concerning his increasing need and capacity to absorb more advanced material. While left to his own studies, he started teaching himself "advanced math, physics, philosophy, Latin, and Greek".[4] He has claimed that he earned a perfect score on the SAT (pre-1995 scale) despite taking a nap during the test.[9]

 ... Langan said he developed a "double-life strategy": on one side a regular guy, doing his job and exchanging pleasantries, and on the other side coming home to perform equations in his head, working in isolation on his Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe (CTMU).[4]

 ... Langan told Muscle & Fitness magazine that "you cannot describe the universe completely with any accuracy unless you're willing to admit that it's both physical and mental in nature"[12] and that the CTMU "explains the connection between mind and reality, therefore the presence of cognition and universe in the same phrase".[13] Langan contends that anything sufficiently real to influence reality must be within reality, and that mind and reality are ultimately inseparable to the extent that they share common rules of structure and processing.[14] He calls his proposal "a true 'Theory of Everything', a cross between John Archibald Wheeler's 'Participatory Universe' and Stephen Hawking's 'Imaginary Time' theory of cosmology."[4]

Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

Do I get de-merit if one of posts is deleted from this thread? To be fair, the deletion was legit, with my bad on my part.

No actually but its not a bad idea.

Furthermore, people should be able to spend 10 of their own sMerits to delete one of somebody else's merits... with no limit. So theoretically a Legendary could be ranked back down to Newbie, but it would cost a minimum of 10,000 sMerits.

I triple-dog dare you to present such to theymos, bud.
