slaves citizens play on-line poker again?

Also - how many times does America need to learn the prohibition lesson?


Annona ad! Please keep in mind that there is nothing wrong with Bitcoin itself. All it's scandals are caused by wonky websites and sleazy people exploiting it. The light attracts bugs.

When all this bullshit drys up and blows away, Bitcoin will be stronger than ever.

IMO there will always be advantages.  At least, it doesn't start and stop at fullblown prohibition.  Even if they legalize it (and regulate it), that's different than having a truly free market, and whatever they do to interfere represents an advantage to be gained by circumventing them.  The smart money probably always prefers a poker site that allows you to be anonymous, uses a peer-to-peer currency, and isn't in bed with the tax system. 

Ya, it would seem easier to gain traction if people weren't allowed back in to conventional poker sites.  But that just has to do with herd mentality and how new Bitcoin is.  The advantage is still there, it just might be less obvious to most people.

BTW, did something happen recently with poker and the law?  I don't really follow it that closely, I just wait for the updates.

According to one of the most respected gaming reporters in the business, federal legislation that would regulate and legalize the online poker industry in the United States is more than likely shut down until 2013 at the earliest.

On his Twitter account Friday afternoon, Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Howard Stutz chirped to his readers, “One Wall Street analyst opinion: Internet poker legalization not being attached to the payroll tax bill means the issue is dead for 2012.” Stutz was discussing the recent legislation in Congress regarding the Payroll Tax Extension bill, which many had rumored could potentially feature online poker regulations as a “rider” in much the same manner as the original Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA) was passed in 2006. However, expectations of that rider were tamped down earlier in the week.

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.
