Not a bad article, the most negative part is the title.  Seems pretty factual and avoids most sensationalism.  I wish it was on the front page of Wired though.

Good, accurate article.

I'm still not Satoshi, though.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

At least they're no longer saying that 'Bitcoin has been hacked' in reference to MtGox being hacked.

When Bitcoiners get interviewed, we should try to correct common misconceptions as well as answer the interviewer's questions.

Hm, WIRED, this is huge.

and Dan Kaminsky is sitting on the comments:  Grin seems he know who Satoshi is .


quote:

Ken Simpson

I'm siding with Dan Kaminsky. There's little question that Nakamoto is not from Japan, and is not one person. Someone put this thing together and made a killing - probably far more than they had hoped.

However, unlike real Ponzi schemes, Bitcoin actually does useful things - for folks who need to move money around surreptitiously. I think it has a modest future in the medium term as a way of paying people in developing countries for out-sourcing work, where banking systems are not necessarily well established for low cost international payments.

Thus the only "fall" has been the fall of the USD-BTC exchange rate. And that doesn't matter much if your only concern is paying a Chinese developer to craft you up a new WordPress theme.

Yes.  It is in the December print edition.  It is not easily found on the front page of wired.com right now though.

That's pretty much how I feel about MS and Apple.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
