Tim to BUY!

If it weren't for Bitcoin and increasing counter-party risk in traditional equities, I'd be buying again.

Gold is heading for a large correction. A death cross just happened today with the 50- and 200-day moving averages. Expect around another 10% drop from here.

If you have a machine on 24/7 why not have a full Bitcoin client running on it to support the network?

Trouble in paradise, mi amigos.

The 1MB block size limit is completely incompatible with the dream of BTC being used by everyone for everything.  Many people seem glued to that fantasy and it colors their vision of the future of Bitcoin.

For my part I was aware of this issue but I was not technically clued in enough to realize the nature of the mechanics involved to change the blocksize.  Since I've always felt that the biggest chance of Bitcoin failure was indeed associated with increased growth, I am delighted by this hicup.  But that's just me.

I make this post because it illustrates the kinds of things that are likely to crop up with a new technology.  Especially one which the core developers continue to classify as 'experimental'.  This will almost certainly not be the last such event (unless it results in an implosion of Bitcoin generally which I currently doubt.)

To the extent that I am taking a victory lap, this is because it illustrates why I choose to continue to label my Bitcoin holding as a highly speculative adventure and balance my diversification accordingly.  PM's also are in a bit of a state of flux due to the increased influence of derivatives, but at the end of the day a chunk of physical gold is a very well understood thing.

This is absolutely no problem. Once transaction replacement gets enabled again, we can do most transactions outside the blockchain without any security loss and with the added benefit of instant settlement and much higher anonymity.

There are other solutions to this "problem" as well; the Bitcoin protocol is much more versatile as the way we are using it today might imply. If you really think this is a show stopper then I suggest you delve a bit deeper into the Bitcoin protocol.
