With a max of 21 million Bitcoins having been released in 2033 then for a $1 B ($1,000,000,000) valuation we get a price of $47.62 per Btc, or atm with over 8 million Btc in the wild we would need a price of approx $125 per Btc, so the question is on what date will Bitcoin become a $1 B entity - closest date wins a 5 Btc prize ~ coins held here: 1BiLLioN

Please express date as YYYY MM DD or as 29th Feb 2012 say, thread will be locked on the 31st Jan 2012 - please don't edit your dates except for typos/clarity, my rules & common sense, i.e. if someone puts the same date as one already chosen the first person wins it & ambiguous dates will be void, 1 entry per pre-existing forum ID

Plus a second competition with the same rules & also for a 5 Btc prize for when the value of a single Bitcoin will equal 1 gram of gold, as shown here in $s, i.e. atm $51.25 ~ coins held here: 1GramAu1

http://goldprice.org/gold-price-per-kilo.html

If 1 person wins both then I shall double their prize to 20 Btc total ~ the extra coins held here: 1x2wins

For those who say never, then please state that & your date shall then be for when a fatal blow hits Bitcoin or failing that if the price falls below $0.10 (prize as above & only payable in zombie Btc)


Edit to add a copy of the summary post: #88

Here's the final summary of the dates chosen, voting & prize entries are now closed, with the time frame of the 4 years up to the end of 2017 being the most popular years for issued Bitcoins to reach $1 B in the poll votes, but 2012 taking it in the date choice & the same for 1 BTC to gain parity with 1 gm Au.

Here also a rounded up table of the approx BTC price for achieving $1 B in the years of them being mined & the $ value of each 5 BTC prize offered - though I chose dates for 2015 myself the sooner I get to give those prizes away the happier I'll be  Tongue

Year  1BTC   5BTC    5BTC     20BTC (the doubled prize for winning both dates)

2012   $110   $550     $550      $2,200
2013   $95     $475     $475      $1,900    <--- WTG BTC & Scott J ~ March 2013 for the double prize!  
2014   $80     $400     $400      $1,600
2015   $75     $375     $375      $1,500
2016   $65     $325     $325      $1,300
2018   $60     $300     $300      $1,200
2020   $55     $275     $275      $1,100
2023   $50     $250     $250      $1,000

2015.04.01 - Market Cap == $1B
2014.04.01 - 1 BTC == 1g Au

I'm bearish and unconvinced that we WILL see $1B.  However, if Bitcoin hangs on through this year and we start seeing serious commerce, it could easily grow that far in a few years.

Edit: added gold.

$B - 30th Oct. 2012
$s - 3rd Aug. 2012
g= ~$62

If the Euro stays proped up, silver and gold low then it will be Jan/Feb 2013 for $B

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Just to be absolutely 100% sure: we're talking UTC dates, right?

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the culture of naive fools and conmen, the former convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and the latter arriving by the busload to devour them.

I am rather pesimistic. Other people (government, corporations, top rich people) simply will not that ALLOW to happen. Even if the Bitcoin will tend to become very popular, there will be high tension to switch the fortune from current BTC holders to the others I named in previous sentence. Do you all think they will let you become rich? No way.

There will be tension to restart the chain. They will start mine its own. I would say, if the current Bitcoin will be successfull in this year, we may expect soon so called "Blockchain Wars". Of course, some will continue to use current blockchain, but its always the majority (even in the Bitcoin world), who rules.

Just my two BitCents, maybe worth a few dollars later.

yep, UTC dates & if 2012 then it's up to $2500 in prizes np - the 20 Btc have been pre-bought (in Nov 2011)  Smiley
I'll send them to my sig later for safe keeping (once I've checked that I've got the private key to that safe still)

highest market cap so far the June 2011 irrational exuberance to about $33 for approx 7 million bits to give roughly $230,000,000

My spidey sense tells me never, but what the heck:



If it doesnt go above 1 billion then it would have failed and collapsed.
How much commerce in the whole world can be done with 1 Billion worth only?
Just Paypal commerce is around 100 Billion and the majority of that is just in the US and Europe.

I say :

1Billion $ =  1st of January 2013
Gold=    1st of January 2014







"We are just fools. We insanely believe that we can replace one politician with another and something will really change. The ONLY possible way to achieve change is to change the very system of how government functions. Until we are prepared to do that, suck it up for your future belongs to the madness and corruption of politicians."

I chose $1 B as a minimum critical mass otherwise we'll be looking at a niche curiosity but one that may well still have it's uses & longetitity
