watching youtube videos of cpu miners back in 2011 gave me the same sense of inevitability:

That even if someone wanted to bring down bitcoin, they’d have to outdo these guys and the dozens of other operations like this around the world. The decentralized nature of it all… that this is just one operation among many, run by different operators in different countries around the world. This really drove home that bitcoin can’t be killed by decree. Make it illegal in one country and people like this will keep hashing away in others.

http://www.thecoinsman.com/2014/08/bitcoin/inside-chinese-bitcoin-mine/

The first Bitcoin mining video I seen in 2011 was Mike Caldwell with his FOUR 5970's mining. I never seen CPU mining on youtube ever in 2011.

You got links?

maybe not.  i started looking at them sometime around Jan 2011.  many of those videos aren't on youtube anymore.  but you're right, the gpu revolution was starting about that time.

Couldn't agree more. Those that manage to discover crypto only to invest in DOGE .... well, they should be a little ashamed of themselves.

Indeed, too bad you can't short it (as far as I am aware).
EDIT: the volatility spikes could be killers too for margin calls, depending on how the exchange would handle them.

Bitcoin is experiencing waves of up and downs all the time, as Gold. But in the case of Gold those waves remain at the same levels. Bitcoin gets to all new heights. I think it's better to stick with our favourite crypto-currency!

Yep, bears have to try harder.

In order to get any true selling going they have to get it to below 554.

so true:

“This is a political, careerist power grab on Ben Lawsky’s part and he needs to be held accountable for distracting the bitcoin community from productive efforts. Every minute spent arguing about government regulations is a minute not spent innovating and pushing the world forward.”

    “Ben Lawsky thinks he has a right to interfere with the natural evolution of block chain technology. He and everyone like him need to be shown the error of their ways, and held accountable for slowing our progress.”

now i finally understand our CFPB:

"The $19.4 trillion sitting in personal retirement accounts like the 401K may be too tempting an apple for a government that is quite broke, both monetarily and morally.  The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Richard Cordray recently mentioned these accounts in a recent interview, stating “That’s one of the things we’ve been exploring and are interested in, in terms of whether and what authority we have.”

I don't know about that.  Sounds like it is possible, if not probable, that the reporter took a quote completely out of context.  Cordray was likely ruminating on whether or not the CFPB had authority to protect (possibly insure or even educate people about) those assets.  It's a massive, massive jump from that to nationalizing them.

Technically, I suppose the gubmint could borrow against those funds, if the account holders voluntarily bought US treasuries.  I'd be more inclined to think they might incent that before they actually GRAB those funds from people involuntarily.

I'd be shocked to not see heavy means testing for retirement dispensations within the next few decades.  Appropriation of retirement accounts would be the 'cleanest' way to implement such a thing in a workable manner.
