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.



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.


So I bought Rickards' book with bitcoin. I specified the following as the "personal inscription":

"This book was purchased online with bitcoin - the future of money. Modern money needs the properties of gold, but with native electronic portability. May the death of fiat money give rise to an ideal money system for modern times: Bitcoin."


Got the book today. Here's the actual inscription:



"This book was purchased with Bitcoin - a new kind of money. "Money" can be anything that gains confidence as a store of value, possibly including Bitcoin. May the best form of money win!"


Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.

In his interview with CoinDesk, Singh says:
“Microsoft has a long-term vision for bitcoin, BitPay and the blockchain. Starting with digital goods in the US is the logical first step, however, they want to expand to Europe and globally and add support for other products as part of that rollout”.

Singh points out that Microsoft is determined to support their Bitcoin policy with word and deed:
“They already have a global plan rolled out for us. They’ve already thought four steps ahead of this whole rollout, so they are very innovative, very aggressive and very strategic in how they work”.

I think it's funny and will make a great gift, as intended.

TBH, I never expected a verbatim inscription, and I give Jim credit for acknowledging that bitcoin is money.

cypher, I just converted the Rubel price (on btc-e) to USD and found out it's nearly 10% lower than on the USD exchanges. What sort of arbitrage are you talking about?

this arbitrage will not stand:

this arbitrage will not stand:



the Ruble has been plunging.  i wasn't thinking in terms of USD's altho you're right in terms of strict arbitrage opportunities maybe being limited as a result of the volatility and uncertainty of the Ruble.  just the relative movements of the price charts, which usually move together, should create some opportunity over time.  we'll see.

Good or bad there's been a fair share of Bitcoin talk in the media lately. If you're one to keep track of the "bitcoin" word on Twitter there seems to be an unusual amount of Bitcoin related tweets today.

Even more encouraging is we've reached this stage where people are calling the death of Bitcoin all while the world's fiat economy is in the shitter.

This rally is gonna be glorious.
