Central banks everywhere should be sure to own everything that is happening now:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-01-27/bonds-third-largest-austrian-bank-are-crashing

...  no, this is precisely the point they start claiming that markets are out of their control.

One such step has been to appoint Valve's economist Yanis Varoufakis to position of Finance Minister of Greece. For the past three years Varoufakis has been working at Steam to analyze and improve the Steam Market but now has the opportunity to improve one of the most troubled economies in the world.

Never understood why Valve/Steam didn't go into Bitcoin in a big way, integrating into games, etc. Maybe this guy who is new leftie greek finance minister was the reason.

Because until recently, there wasn't much in the way of payment processing on that kind of scale.  Bitpay can handle now.  Expect to see Valve accepting BTC soon.

Bitpay has been around since 2011. Valve are big enough to create their own bitpay in house if they wanted to. Basically, they are followers not the leaders they used to be in tech .... is what it comes down to. I agree Valve will 'accept' bitcoin soon, because it is safe, microsoft, dell, etc, etc but I highly doubt they'll be doing anything innovative with it inside their games, in-game currencies, user-wallets, etc ... probably just dump it back on the xchanges for the commie fiat.

I recall a statement from Gabe Newell some time ago that indicated they weren't really interested in bitcoin implementation.

I agree, but Bitpay didn't have the infrastructure/reputation they do now.  Valve will implement BTC, it's only a matter of time, maybe when they release Half-Life 3  Wink

He's a hard-left SYRIZA neo-liberal idiot who has been (mal)educated far beyond his intelligence.

Of course he hates the idea of honest money beyond the control of the State.

Fuck him.  I hope the German bankers repossess his entire country and put his lazy pontificating academic ass to work in a salt mine.   Smiley

wow ... good catch, no wonder Valve was so anti-bitcoin.

Here's one that will blow Varoufakis tiny mind wide open.

Which vision will win out? That will depend less on the specific capacities of the technology than on the ability of governments and electorates to grasp what it is and what it means. One way or another, it looks like RoboCorp will be able to look out for itself. In the meantime, we need to get our own house in order.

Greece doesn't have the balls that Iceland or Switzerland have. They will sell out their people and lands.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Median age in Greece is over 43 years old.

Every young person with any kind of talent or ability has fled.

It's a country full of ageing people who are desperately trying to believe that when they get too old to work they'll be able to pay the younger generation that doesn't exist to take care of them with the money they won't have.

And when private enterprise attempts to create jobs, it is met with protests and arson.

http://www.businessinsider.com/demonstrators-protest-greek-gold-mine-2013-11



That truck is a metaphor for the entire country.  They made their socialist hellhole, and now they can burn in it.

Did these idiots forget that without the Athenian silver mines they'd all be speaking Persian?

Good triremes weren't cheap, and neither are F-16s.
