this could easily spark a bottom for the almost 10 mo bear mkt.  the market can only be so stupid for so long in the face of all this good news.
paypal + coinbase + bitpay + GABI buying + Overstock hiring bitcoin devs + wtf else do we need for people to figure out bitcoin is becoming a thing...and a more efficient thing means 100's of billions in marketcap..in the not too distant future

wow thanks for this! That was one of the most refreshing perspectives I've heard in a while.

It's all bullshit. But bullshit makes the flowers grow and that's beautiful.

A floating abstraction based on force and politics is loosing value relatively to a rational and mathematically secure tool of value exchange.
Yes seems plausible and inevitable !!!

This is awesome because it shows that this wasn't a covering rally like the last one.

RE: digital money beating gold.  Cypherdoc I think that this is one of the smartest things you've said on this forum so far.  You observed that digital money makes transmission instant and therefore can be deployed rapidly to calm panics, etc.  That is, the physical act of deployment can happen quickly.  

I'd like to extend this a tidbit to also observe that unbacked money has the advantage that social/political advantage that the decision to transfer can be made quickly and in a centralized fashion.  That is, deciding to pull gold out of Fort Knox and send it to god knows where would probably require an act of congress and freak out the general public.  But telling some bank that they can add a couple of zeros to their balance sheet, especially given that that money needs to STAY on the balance sheet to meet additional solvency regulations, seems to be done by a couple of people sitting in a conf room with no oversight or public knowledge of the situation.  This may not be GOOD, but it let fiat beat gold...

RE: digital money beating gold.
If it wasn't for the religion of gold throwing so many smokescreens up around the issue, it would be generally considered as obvious as the fact that the internal combustion engine beat horses as a transportation provider.

That is a great observation explaining the true nature of  fiat, that of a manipulation tool and as such it has a great value to the political class.
On the other hand real money is like physics it doesnt care about your feelings if you step out of the ledge and crash on the concrete.
There's a real discussion to be made by rational and civilised societies in the future about this.
For the time being bitcoiners are creating the future without asking permission.
