Student loan system is almost financially unworkable, say MPs

http://www.theguardian.com/education/2014/jul/22/student-loan-system-financially-unworkable-mps?CMP=twt_gu

there are student loan bubbles everywhere waiting to pop. Note how the MP's push the problem off to the next electorates.

Passed btc to another finance guys iPhone last night at a dinner table of 8. Even the wives got quiet when I did this for the men. Made a big impression and the skepticism is decreasing significantly amongst these people.

I also made the point that because I was using my vpn to connect with Sweden, that the btc were traveling 11000 mi before landing in his phone. It took 10 s. I only sent him 60c worth but emphasized there is no other payment services that could do that. His words were "that's amazing". So happy that Apple opened back up.

They call me Mr. Bitcoin Smiley

Having a bitcoin wallet available in the appstore makes it very easy to demo bitcoin when at parties and pubs.  

May I ask what wallet you are using?  I personally use the blockchain.info iPhone wallet, but last time I checked it's still not back.  I've missed a couple opportunities to demo bitcoin now just because I'm not familiar with any of the wallets currently in the appstore.

For demos I use "bitwallet" on iphone because it is quick to set up and I like the fact that you can scan private keys with it. There are few others that aren't bad either: "coinpocket" and "breadwallet."

BTW, I used to use "easywallet.org" via safari browser for demos before Apple started allowing bitcoin wallets. Fast, great user interface but they need to bookmark the page in order to not lose their bitcoins. It is run by Jeremy Kangas of LocalBitcoins.com and it is a web wallet.

EDIT: For android I recommend Mycelium all the way. By far my favorite mobile wallet. Easy key management and you can spend from cold storage/paper wallets.

i thought this was interesting from Coinometrics.  i drew in the trendlines.  try extrapolating ghash (green) in your mind to match that of Deepbit and BTCGuild:

i use Mycelium on my Android as well.  i especially like the cold wallet fx but it's also easy to use.  i am experimenting with some of the other wallets as well.  GreenAddress looks to be extremely sophisticated with 2 factors, nlocktimes, and encryption.  there's probably more too.

note the 2 pumped stocks in after hours from yesterday after hours, CMG and NFLX:





talk about volatility.  ask yourself if you could've been fast enough to cover a short on CMG during that 1 min ramp?  answer: no way.

in NFLX's case, look at the whipsaw.  another sucker's trap.

Although these coins are not intended to be used for transactions, you can still never be certain if the previous owner didn’t secretly keep a copy of the private keys, or the Bitcoin that you’re supposed to receive hasn’t already been spent. (NOR CAN YOU BE CERTAIN THE COIN ISN'T MADE OF TUNGSTEN) Hopefully, this problem will be solved in the next generation of the “Gold-Bitcoin.”

gotta admit these are pretty:

Is there currently a solution to the physical bitcoin trust problem? Is there a way to pass on a private key without the ability to later redeem it's balance? Have there been any proposals to get around this?

I ask because I may have developed a solution for an un-hackable physical coin, but while it requires you to trust me, it's not worth pursuing.

Have central banks been breaking the law?

why aren't you doing your part to "go out and buy something"?

so much for trickle down economics:
