to late!

Or people can just not use bitcoin-qt. Let the foundation play in their own bitcoin-qt only network.

It is just a private group of scammers and other kind of criminals, as other poster said their group name is just to cause confusion. But it is worrying 'cause as far as i know core developers are founding members of such group. We can't let bitcoin development in their hands.
The Bitcoin Foundation pays Gavin and other developers to contribute to the protocol and client. Without the foundation, Bitcoin development and growth would decrease dramatically. Heartbleed could have been avoided if more donations were made to the OpenSSL foundation. If you want to stop using bitcoin-qt go ahead...you are still using the blockchain. I encourage both of you to donate to either of these foundations and keep your insipid drivel out of the forums.

Donate to a foundation with criminal records and merely private interests. You gotta be kidding?

To pay developers all they need is to post a donation address. Nobody needs a foundation for this.

TBF is a closed circle following a questionable political agenda which is not in the best interest of the bitcoin community as a whole (e.g. "regulation").

I think as long as BTC is hitting high and people are earning, why care for such foundation. Tongue

As far as I'm concerned the Bitcoin Foundation is irrelevant, they only have their name to make people think they are something to do with Bitcoin, it's a bit like how the Federal Reserve uses the word 'Federal' to make people think they're part of the government. Speaking as someone who holds to mainly Anarchist beliefs, they can fuck off, I can see exactly what they're trying to do and they're trying to make some kind of centralised company or group for Bitcoin itself, I'm grateful the devs don't really seem to give a shit and continue to release the code open source.

What you say is true. But we need somebody to explain this to people in general, big time. What kind of a method would work, to explain I mean?

The bigger and more popular the Foundation gets, the more they centralize Bitcoin. Why? Because the PEOPLE are so used to centralization, that they naturally look for something centralized to be a leader. Just look at all the business exchanges do.

The Foundation is NOT irrelevant. It's downright dangerous to the little bit of freedom that Bitcoin has brought into being among us.

Not sure about the latter, but Bitcoin-Central has the entire European theatre covered with their venerable exchange as seen below.

http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/bitcoin-central.net

-

Bitcoin-Central.net (& .com) is own by davout, of which is owned by Paymium, of which davout is an owner. Bitcoin Central is the only entity left of the five that Paymium built with their $400K USD VC from Gilitt. Then again, what would one expect to have with ONLY $400K USD?



The way I'm seeing it is that the only people living high on the hog are the ones acting as the liaison between the VCs and the end users of any products/services provided, with many of them getting the shaft.

Sunlot is no better, for if you research their VCs, you see a many failed ventures as well. I firmly believe that Autumn Radtke knew it, thus decided to commit suicide(?) with her body found here:



Autumn jumped(?) from her 25th story apartment and the wind carried her body two blocks away and landed here. Note to self: Very windy in Singapore.
