I remember the moment I thought about the total supply it felt like a topic no one wanted to talk about and then when you did the issue was marginalized to understanding of M0, M1, M2, and M3.

I knew it was a problem when my calculator didn't have enough digits to display the numbers involved. This was what made me realize how abstract the problem was to everyday people. That reality helped me find Bitcoin.

I guess we should leave the care taking of supply to the professionals if no one cares  Roll Eyes

This is gonna be fun... When you buy one of his books on his site, you can get a "custom inscription" which it sounds like Jim personally hand-writes on the book. So I'll be buying one with a personal inscription regarding bitcoin that'll be utterly painful for Jim to write.

I'm taking suggestions. It can be up to 150 words.

lol, I'll get one with "Bitcoin to the moon!" if they ship to Europe affordably.



argh, shit:



oh yeah, I guess I'll just enter an alternative shipping address, let me see what I can do,... there's the mansion in Florida, but I wont be there for a while. Hm, maybe they ship to my castle in Estonia or the South Africa farm? I guess the Olive garden in Italy wont be shipped to either. Ah, I got it: the space station module I bought last month might be an option. Or maybe even better that moon crater I claimed.

Jesus, why is shipping shit from the states so hard? People ship from everywhere to the states for low cost. I guess exporting goods is something the US has unlearned for obvious reasons.

I'm going to make him write something about how bitcoin is the future of money since it solves gold's tangibility bug. It'll be a fun 150 words.

Can you run the text by us beforehand and publish a photo afterwards?

I'm not sure he'll write it himself, though:

Quote
Each copy is a hardcover copy and includes a personalization by the author. The perfect gift for friends and relatives, this also makes a great addition to your personal collection. Please specify your desired inscription with each order. (limit of 150 words)

Not sure that 'personalization' is actually the inscription.

I know buterin and larimer met up in vegas this yr and larimer convinced buterik about dpos maybe now is when they switch.. another notch under the belt for
bitshares

I see that as a  negative.

Bitshares had had to change itself several times for flawed assumptions. DPOS probably won't be any better than POS. And the fact that Vitalik was meeting with and changing its own model just this summer goes to show just how incoherent their whole concept is a well.
Flawed assumptions? I guess nature is based on flawed assumptions for allowing evolution to happen.

Rickards has a fairly rational position on Bitcoin.
If you have read much of his works, he thinks Bitcoin is a good thing, understands its merits, and the basics of what it is, but he is not (yet) one of us crazy optimists that expect that it will both catch on someday... and that it can also save the world.  Many here take it for granted that it will do both and don't see the very long and embattled road ahead leading toward that goal.  Others are engaged in the sometimes very hard work of moving closer toward that goal.

Gornick is a good guy. Smiley  While he is at it, maybe he can fix Rickards too... and get him to stop using the #bictoin hashtag and use #bitcoin instead.  Wink
