just to illustrate how ridiculous these claims are, I created this little parody:

"It's my job to assist in the destruction of the Linux operating system. Currently we are researching various methods that will be used to attack free software in the near future. Previous attacks have resulted in usage drops, but we will not be content until Linux has been driven completely underground to a very small amount of fanatics with no chance of taking off into the main stream software world."

"I want Linux to be destroyed. It's not personal, this is just a requirement of the company I work for."



The problem with your parody is that there is evidence supporting it. Microsoft extended support for Windows XP after netbooks threatened to prove that GNU/Linux is more versatile, yet still usable by the average person. As a result of Microsoft pressure, netbooks moved from Solid-State disks to spinning disks in  order to have enough space to install Windows XP. This results in a slower, more power hungry computer that is simply less functional, other than in storage capablility.

Microsoft also charges manufacturers approximately the same license fees for both Windows Mobile and Android handsets. At the same time, Microsoft limits what features the Android phones are allowed to have. You can thank software patents for this situation.

TL;DR: Your parody does nothing to prove one way or another whether this annonymous person is telling the truth.


Double facepalm. You fell right into it.

There may be lots of deluded people with the intention, but lacking the means to destroy Bitcoin.

Some others may have a real interest, the knowledge and the financial means to try it. If that is the case, I trust our governments to prosecute those guilty of such heinous actions.

I enclose a link to the US Pentagon stand on cyber-attacks:

Once Bitcoin is understood, the consequences of a bank-only system are evident: your wallet is your national identity card and all private keys are handed to the government

I think his point was not to ridicule the legitimacy of the attack, but the idea of the attack itself, real or not: Bitcoin is as impervious to such threats as Linux. The Microsoft case that you mentions is exactly what the PP was alluding to.

On a recent survey about Bitcoin I found a person who admitted that it's his job to destroy Bitcoin within a team of people, probably to protect the current financial system:

"It's my job to assist in the destruction of the Bitcoin network. Currently we are researching various methods that will be used to attack the network in the near future. Previous attacks have resulted in price drops, but we will not be content until Bitcoin has been driven completely underground to a very small amount of fanatics with no chance of taking off into the main stream financial world."

"I want the network destroyed. It's not personal, this is just a requirement of the project for which I have been assigned to."

What would you like to see in the future of bitcoin in general?
Answer: "More bank account closures on the exchanges"

see more of his answers:
http://www.kwiksurveys.com/results-overview.php?mode=5&survey_ID=OHKDGN_329545e7&session_ID=CKJIGJM_e611c8d

Recently nearly all bank accounts of exchanges in Europe (SEPA-zone) were closed within one week. So this fits with what he says.
Also he admits that one goal is to drive the price down, which is also happening now.




Sounds like "JOB SECURITY", pardon the pun. hehehe...


BitCoin welcomes attacks.... Unlike other institutions... What doesn't hurt it makes it stronger...

At this point, it is the job of every alt coin holder to destroy Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is tipping the financial systems over, it has many enemies, some very powerful too. PayPal, Western Union, credit card companies, banks, the list goes on. Any one of these companies are willing to pay for a anti-bitcoin campaign.

What this means is, bitcoin is fundamentally so sound that corporations feels threatened.

And this thread was revived after more than 3 years lying dormant and coincidentally today is one of the biggest price drop in bitcoin history. And seriously, they need that long to destroy bitcoin? I always have the feeling corporations, banks, huge financial institutions have the means to destroy the coin so if we survive this round of onslaught, we should rise up stronger than before.

I don't think he or any other negative blogger or forum poster is needed to drop the price of bitcoin.  The scamming exchanges and imprisoned Torah lords are doing more than enough to handle that task.

It took me some time to realize, that this is an old thread.
This part is interesting. Seems to be true for this time again.

The selling pattern is not that of someone who wants to make money, but of someone who purposefully wants the price of Bitcoin to go down.

Someone who had a lot of Bitcoin that they would want to maximize their profits from would sell at times when people have money in their Dwolla/MtGox accounts that could put money into BTC to buy up their coins.

Instead they do huge sells on Sunday night/Monday morning when people have gone all weekend without having their accounts re-upped with cash.

Someone wanting maximum return would also sell in small quantities in order to avoid panic selling before they can get the maximum amount from their sales.

The person who currently has a $50,000 wall at $2.10 is the person driving the price down.

I just wish I had bought his $50,000 wall.

Well, Bitcoin's a fragile environment.

They might be able to take down bitcoin but Cryptos are here to stay.

Wrong, bitcoin is extremely anti-fragile. Think of it like an organism or a virus. Mutating open-source decentralized network software. It's a hydra.

The more people trying to break bitcoin the better. Anyone who thinks that challenging and hacking protocols is a bad idea, go Wiki "Linux".
This.

When this guy's done destroying Bitcoin, he'll be able to demand high consultant fees to destroy various altcoins.
