Seems like Max Keiser is now fully on board with Bitcoin - the conference in Prague clearly pushed him over the edge. He's been tweeting frequently with great things to say about Bitcoin, and his legion of Twitter followers appear curious, intrigued, and supportive of Keiser's new fetish.  And why not? The many reasons one ought to support silver and oppose central banking are just as relevant (or moreso) with Bitcoin. Speaks highly of Keiser that he's able to recognize the potential of this new technology - it shows that he understands monetary systems fundamentally, as opposed to being just some old-fashioned silver bug.

A few tweets I just saw:

AlexLFz Silver Surfer
@maxkeiser tell us more about #bitCoin

CMcEvil CIARAN MC
@maxkeiser why are you so hot for BitCoin?

NeilMichaelis Neil Michaelis
@maxkeiser Bitcoin is the future. NOW!

cnctcompassion Kellie Conley, MA

KnightCrawler_7 NieL aka ....

Remmic Remmic

Last year we had three guests on "Keiser Report" talking about BitCoin. We are going to follow that up in 2012 with many more.

Damn, there goes bitcoin price to the sky again... and it will eventually fall as people lose interest in it.

Just wait and see...

I like this tweet:

@maxkeiser:
I like Bitcoins because it's a way to make banks cry. I'm going to start paying PMF members free - US dollar cash dividends via BC in 2012.

Today, also Fred Wilson (that of AVC.com) posted a blog article about Bitcoin:
http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2011/11/bitcoin.html

(There is a thread about that already on this forum).

New infrastructure and exposure brings new bubbles... new bubbles bring new infrastructure and exposure. We should expect many bubbles, and a continual waxing and waning of interest over the coming years, but always with a net aggregate growth in usefulness, userbase, and price.

evoorhees, there are so many trolls and asshats on this forum, that sometimes I despair and don't come back for days.  But then I see your posts and I have hope.  If we had just a few more forum posters of your quality and reasonableness, and a few less trolls, this forum would be a MUCH more enjoyable place.  Thanks.

I'll step up to the plate and count myself among these.

Agreed.  I disagree with you politically on many fronts, evoorhees, and with a certain amount of your analysis (though I do agree strongly with other of your analysis and certain Libertarian philosophies.)  I always felt that you are genuine, earnest, thoughtful, and your stuff is worth reading for those reasons among others.  (e.g., the great news in the OP.  I've been paying attention to Keiser since the karmabanqueradio days and he and Stacy have had a big influence on my outlook...and investment decisions...)

It was very refreshing to hear both Rick Falkvinge and Max Keiser on stage in Prague, given the amount of crap we have to endure most of the time from the so called experts (try a press conference with Mario Draghi).
We are all aligned on the objective to help people take back control of their own money and not use a bank when it is not needed (like we use e-mail all the time and the post office ONLY when its absolutely needed).

I second this. I used to enjoy these forums, but the trolls and worse, attention whores who have nothing but negativity to contribute, have really ruined the experience lately.

evoorhees is one of the few names I don't scroll past lately. Thanks for sticking around, sir.

Keep up the good work, evoorhees.

Just watch man... the trolls who currently declare Bitcoin dead because the price is falling, will soon declare it unusable as a currency because the price is rising. The deflation argument will return. The bubble argument will return. The pyramid scheme argument will return.

It's fine, when they've missed both their first and second chance to accumulate a stake in the most revolutionary technology since the internet, they'll be trolled by their own conscience and that's a very pernicious troll, indeed.

LOL that is such a great statement. If someone makes a t-shirt with that on it, and finds Von Nipples' home address, I'll pay to have the shirt made (using bitcoin) and will get it sent to his house as a gift. Such prescience and insight demands compensation.

Ahahahaha. That was grabbed from MarginalRevolution.com comments, but I wouldn't be surprised if he trolls here most of the time.
