20 yr UST (TLT) has been hinting at a RunToSafety, aka, Moar Black Hole Shit:



here's the interesting one, the USD Index.  looks like it's topping.  if we enter another crisis, i seriously doubt the US will get away with both the USD and UST's rallying like in 2008.  we'll have to sacrifice one or the other and it will probably be the USD:

I've been calling a USD bullrun for over 3 years now so I think it has a ways to go still. May escalate when the EUR experiment is over.

Ryan Charles, via Reddit:

Quote from: ryancarnated
reddit has the potential to make bitcoin mainstream. There is no better company in the world to do this than reddit.
and

Quote from: ryancarnated
Bitcoin technology will ultimately become integral to reddit. We've had some internal brainstorming about ways we could integrate - the possibilities are enormous.

To which I asked:

Quote from: melbustus
"Bitcoin technology" meaning what, exactly? Can you say whether you're going to be using the bitcoin currency and the bitcoin blockchain, versus creating a completely separate currency/blockchain for Reddit's digital assets needs?

And Ryan's response:

Quote from: ryancarnated
Great question! First of all, see Oleg Andreev's excellent article "The universe wants one money": http://blog.oleganza.com/post/54121516413/the-universe-wants-one-money
Competing with bitcoin wouldn't make any sense. Rather than compete, we want to build on and with the bitcoin community. We will not create a currency that competes with bitcoin. Instead, we will leverage the blockchain (The Blockchain, i.e., the bitcoin blockchain), and quite possibly also sidechains, in order to build our technology.
We are not making an altcoin. We are not making an altcoin. We are not making an altcoin.

Sort of. When I was hired, we didn't really have a concrete plan. We just recognized the enormous potential of bitcoin technology at reddit.
Why reddit? Because reddit is the largest phyle in the sense of Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age. There is no community in the world more ideally suited to adopting decentralized, internet-native technology like bitcoin. It's a perfect match.

Quote
If we do a good job building this technology, there should be next to nothing for us to maintain. The software will all be open-source, and powered by decentralized technologies. reddit servers will play a very minor, and non-critical role by facilitating the user experience.

this guy, he gets it.

This is a good read too. Very telling https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=869664.new#new

Forgive my petulance and oft-times, I fear, ill-founded criticisms, and forgive me that I have, by this time, made your eyes and head ache with my long letter. But I cannot forgo hastily the pleasure and pride of thus conversing with you.

Yes!  I wondered what had caused the jump in price when I looked at the charts in the morning ... this is a good reason.

Often new retail spending options depresses prices, but this should be different.  Software development and ease of use are very important for Bitcoin and there is a rumor that Microsoft does still develop software. Wink
It is a good thing for Bitcoin though, no matter what the price does.

Of course.  But obviously there was also a quite strong short-term effect of the announcement on the price.  But yes, I think that in the long run, news like these are especially good to further the general adoption and development of the ecosystem.  (Which may not always be reflected in the short-term price movements.)
