Victory in the battle for the digital wallet may not necessarily go the swiftest, but an over-cautious approach could leave banks trailing in the dust of early adopters.

major short term Dow Theory non-conf on the board.  makes sense with oil and Baltic Dry plunging along with other commodities except for gold.  i think this is real so high alert on stocks:

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.

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.

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.
