You may or may not have notice who seems to be running the show in most countries.

It is said that "Old age and treachery beats youth and skill every time." Smiley
Maybe you missed this, but we're doing cryptography here.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptography

Quote
Cryptography (or cryptology; from Greek κρυπτός kryptós, "hidden, secret"; and γράφειν graphein, "writing", or -λογία -logia, "study", respectively)[1] is the practice and study of techniques for secure communication in the presence of third parties (called adversaries).[2] More generally, it is about constructing and analyzing protocols that overcome the influence of adversaries[3] and that are related to various aspects in information security such as data confidentiality, data integrity, authentication, and non-repudiation.[4] Modern cryptography intersects the disciplines of mathematics, computer science, and electrical engineering.

It's an entire field dedicated toward using math to reduce the ability of people like you to "run the show."

ouch

You know what I see in this comment?  Cypherdoc being a doofus! (yawn.)

I would not rule out that there could be enough similar thought patterns to have an impact on spot gold prices such is the sad level of critical thinking skills here on planet earth.  If so, and if it coincided with a good selling opportunity for Bitcoin (sadly, this ain't one...maybe next year sometime) then the planets would be nicely aligned for a portfolio re-adjustment.

I am fascinated by Tim May's crypto-anarchy. Unlike the communities traditionally associated with the word "anarchy", in a crypto-anarchy the government is not temporarily destroyed but permanently forbidden and permanently unnecessary. It's a community where the threat of violence is impotent because violence is impossible, and violence is impossible because its participants cannot be linked to their true names or physical locations.

The cypherpunks have been lining up for this shot for nearly three decades.

If you're still looking for a safe-haven investment, a better option would be large-cap stocks with lots of cash and good management like Disney, Apple or Microsoft.

If the idea is to join the dollar rally, why target companies with dollars when you can just hold dollars.  Especially when stocks are still pushing all time highs and creating megaphones.

Yeah I had to chuckle at that too. I think we all know what the best safe haven is.  Wink

To bad there are so many of you young pups who think that dual-booting Ubuntu makes you invincible, able to stride the earth as Goliath, and master of all you survey.  Bitcoin's outcome will depend on the race will be between the grey-beards who are not yet pushing up the daisies and you lemmings.

Yeppers, and those of us that saw that in the theaters when it first came out have been here lining up this shot all along.
Someday, Justus, when we are alone, and I'm feeling good... I will tell you some stories about this and the cypherpunk connection that will absolutely blow your mind.
Just be sure to remind me to do so when the time comes, so I don't get senile and start talking about sleds named rosebud or something.  Wink

I don't think I'm ever remiss in acknowledging the work people in preceding generation did to set this up. At this point, however, anyone in those generations either helped get us to this point, or they didn't.

If they didn't, it's too late for them now.

Why do you care so much?

I'm just a lemming, right? Why does it matter where I get any strategy from?

On one hand I'm significantly invested in both Bitcoin and gold so my interest is highly selfish.  On the other, Bitcoin is not yet ruined and has the potential to provide support for the kinds of individual freedom enhancing frameworks envisioned by the now grey-beards back in the formative years of the cyphterpunks, so it annoys me when you folks try to fuck it up (regardless of what your motivations.)  Gold (which I care little about) and Bitcoin (which I care significantly about) are both prone to damage by lemmings of different stripes.

Anyway, keep your focus on that vent orifice and getting one stuck in there.  The more things which distract you from distributed crypto-currencies the better.

Define, please.

Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.
But Bitcointalk & /r/bitcoin are heavily censored. bitco.in/forum, forum.bitcoin.com, and /r/btc are open.
