That made me think about the implications of the ability to send a negative amount. Probably a good thing the network won't allow it. It won't, right?

No, it won't.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

I've been a regular reader of XKCD for years, but I've never bought any merchandise. Thanks for the laughs, Randall! Please keep up the great work and enjoy 5 BTC worth of gin from me!

Just sent him a small donation! I'm pretty confident we can get him to talk about bitcoin at one point or the other if we keep sending him coins Smiley

The more ridiculous the amounts are, the more likely that will happen.

I'm still waiting to see:

4.20

I wonder if he'll mention bitcoin in an actual comic at some point

that'd be awesome; p.ex. a roomba buying itself a new firmware with bitcoins stolen from the owner ; )
but that's more questionable content / pintsize stuff

A central bank counterfeits money, which is a form of theft since it's making the dollars in our pockets worth less which hurts the poorest worst of all.

Poor people have debt, the real value of which is reduced by inflation.

Bitcoin doesn't prevent anyone to make loans.

I actually don't think the fractionnal reserve system is so bad.   I just think people should be allowed to try an other one.

Also, in the expression "fractionnal reserve" has the word "reserve" in it.  Those reserves have to be reserves of something.

Those reserves used to be gold.  They will be bitcoins.

He's up to 354 BTC... not bad for a little 'black hole' as it was called.

I would prefer to see a comic poking fun at bitcoin. Just imagine:

box 1: someone is buried into huge computers producing insane it. A woman come: "what are you doing?"

Box 2: guy: "I'm mining for bitcoins, which is a virtual money. I sell those virtual bitcoins for real dollars in order to pay for my hardware. At the end, I should make an huge profit."

Box 3: woman "And what will you do with all this money ?". Guy : "Invest it in something very risky but cool. Like bitcoin. Lot of bitcoins!"

If I were Randall at this point I would never make Bitcoin a payment option on my store. Apparently people will give you hundreds of bitcoins for free, so why do all the work of selling things?

(This is why I haven't "donated" yet---I'm waiting to actually buy something.)
