here we have a peek that Bitcoin may in fact sneek in the backdoor and become the world's reserve currency unbeknownst to the IMF and banksters.  they are adopting the Andreas way of looking at Bitcoin (the currency as simply the first app), which i still maintain is fundamentally in error:

There was recognition that such protocols could serve as an “initial layer” upon which platforms of fully blown payment systems could be built.

http://www.coindesk.com/imf-world-bank-panellists-discuss-block-chains-potential/

let them start building and come to the realization that the blockchain can't work w/o the currency.

Not just the first app, the foundation app.

that's a much better way to put it.

LOL @ esperanto.  there are SOME small differences... like being able to accept Bitcoin using your phone in about 5 min.  Compare that to learning esperanto (2+ years), or even accepting a credit card (a week+ for the signup & to receive the reader, etc).

This is a wonderful experience that I repeat as often as I can.  I tend to wear some bitcoin bling most of the time.  A key chain, a pin, something.
I get a question about it from a stranger.  Rather than answer, I offer to show them.

"Do you have a phone?  A smart phone?"

And it goes from there.  5 minutes later, they have some bitcoin, and something to show off to their friends.
They are hooked.

I need some Bitcoin bling.  I need a tee that says "Ask me about BTC" or "I'll sell you some BTC".  I don't want some politically edgy slogan, and I don't want to pay $25 + shipping for a $5 shirt.  Same for keychain or pin.  What did you buy?

I have a lot of bitcoin stuff.
Tshirts from most of the conferences from the last few years, button, hats stickers, the Key Chain is made by a friend of mine.
One of the other catchy ones is the Bitcoin Specie.  I keep a few in my pocket and when I pull out my change there they are.   Cashiers are very likely to ask, they deal with money all day long.

Cashiers also make great local bitcoiners.  With their managers permission they can put up a little Bitcoin Accepted here sign in front of their register, take your bitcoin and drop their own money in the till.  Makes a little profit for them too.

This is our biggest untapped adoption expansion IMHO, the independant cashier.  When the manager realizes that they get more business because of that cashier, The manager is happy, the cashier gets promoted, gets attention, it spreads organically.

Bitcoin will be used as money only because it is a sensitive subject and elite may not want to mess with it once its set in place.. but other coins such as ethereum and bitsharesx can go ahead and try to capture businesses/stock markets/exchanges all in a distributed manor using the blockchain... this way there are specific solutions to domains rather than a 1 size fits all pony.
Has Ethereum(sp?) decided on how it's going to secure itself yet?...

not that i'm aware.  but isn't that the most astounding thing?  collect all that investment money and nobody knows how it will be secured?  just shows how immature their code must be.

It only takes a reasonable code.. ^^

Bitcoin compares to fiat base money; notes and cons. Some important traits of bitcoin is better. Some are not so good. What can we do? Anybody can produce bitcoin notes and coins, and back them with real bitcoins. Even better, we can make cryptocoins and notes with hidden secret keys, they don't need backing. Not possible for fiat.

We do not have credit or debit cards. We don't need them for remote payment. Are there something with cards that is better? In that case, the market will supply bitcoin credit or debit cards, and they will be just as good.

We can't lose this!

Right now in the markets due to what is happening in Europe there is a large correction going on.

Looks like the largest correction in the last 2 years.

Watch the SP500 very closely, might be due for a large sell off soon.

Some propose that bitcoin is not useful where there is no internet nor power. In such a setting, notes would be good. (Paper wallet notes are probably better). The market decides.

This article (pointed to me via zerohedge) describes the current bitcoin market exactly.

A Game of Sentiment

http://www.salientpartners.com/epsilontheory/post/2013/11/03/A-Game-of-Sentiment

"who will get the most votes when all the voters are basing their votes on who they think will get the most votes? This is the Sentiment game!"

and

"We have reached the third degree where we devote our intelligences to anticipating what average opinion expects the average opinion to be. And there are some, I believe, who practice the fourth, fifth and higher degrees." (originally Keynes).

I would guess markets on goods with less exchange value and more direct use value, where storage and transaction costs relative to goods value is higher, with a high degree of production and consumption compared to storage, are different.

That was a great read. The USD, which is probably the biggest traded and used "item" worldwide, is manipulated as hell and anything that is traded in USD - which is just about everything - has no real chance of price discovery. I have seen 10+ valid explanations for the drop in the price of oil, but because the world of finance is so fucked up, not a single economist/analyst has suggested it may be simply supply and demand, which could also be a valid reason. I wonder if bitcoins became as ubiquitous as the USD whether things would change.

The article reminded of a something a lecturer said from when I was learning Pascal, many eons ago: "In order to fully understand recursion, first you must fully understand recursion."

The sentiment game is played within usd markets but there is no real alternative to where sound money should be placed based on real demand metrics. That is, the next alternative is just as bad as the "everyones" favourite. Bitcoin is simply clawing its way into the sentiment battle by being an alternative to usd and the rigged game by the phonies on wallstreet. As more and more people realize its strengths and Id argue smart money already knows about usd weaknesses then it slowly shifts trend over to bitcoin and the likes.. its all about governments giving green light for bitcoin to do business in their jurisdiction. Once that is in place watch out.. but by then someone with alot of money will be already well positioned and prices will reflect that news already.

That is also the time that bitcoin becomes the obvious chioce as the "everyone knows" and wins the sentiment game.

Gold is manilulated because of phony supply and no trail or visibility of who owns what.

"Labor senator Sam Dastyari has warned Australian banks not to “act like a bunch of ostriches” with their “heads in the sand” when confronting the rise of bitcoins"

"He did, however, concede there were certain parts of the banking sector that realised they had to address the rise of digital currencies, because “it’s the future”."
