I've got you all beat:
The ultimate best way to show someone bitcoin has value (and is not fake) is to take them to your mailbox when your silkroad pot arrives. Pull out your pipe right then and let your friend take the first hit. If it's some good shit, then tell your friend you bought it with bitcoin. Maybe then your friend will believe you that bitcoin has value.


No thats more of a way to put a bad spotlight on bitcoins. And not everyone who is involved with bitcoins like to smoke pot. I personally like to be productive, not lazy.
Glad to see someone taking a stand against connecting bitcoins to drugs. Lots of idiots like the guy who posted that crap are part of the reason it's so hard to get people to embrace bitcoins.

He's probably deeply involved in that sort of thing, and that's all he thinks about.
Scum.

So everybody smoking pot are scums and idiots? Lots of closeminded people on this forum as well it seems...

You're the close minded person, as you're assuming we think -everybody- doing that is scum/idiots. Read the posts once more, and try to realize that my problem is him connecting drugs to Bitcoins, not that he smokes pot. I couldn't care less, it's a choice everyone does and I wouldn't despise another human being solely based on one thing.

So did you make any headway in convincing your close-minded friend that bitcoin is not "fake?" Honestly several fairly valid arguments were presented already so if he still isn't on board he's probably just being an obnoxious douche for the sake of getting under your skin.

If you can't even get them near a computer to have a look at it in then there's no point in convincing them any further.

It's not hard to explain to someone who actually wants to know and learn, but impossible to explain to someone who covers his ears and shouts while you try. Smiley

Cash it in. Take a little and withdraw it then show them all the 'fake' money your making.

Show them some cool physical bitcoins...

This one is my favorite. Bought ten of them:


Math based currencies will supplant all sovereign currencies over time. Buy them now.

That's a good idea actually, nice physical coin btw. If people are able to hold them in their own hands they just can't deny that it's real.
