"I can't stop everything, so I will attempt nothing, not even against those who do so openly and blatantly."
So can you at least do something to balance this? Like I said, maybe make protected chests invincible so there's a way to maintain liquidity without risk for those who don't use bitcoins? Also, make those chests infinite in size like bitcoin wallets, please. Also, make them accessible for anywhere on the map. Also, make it possible to transfer instantaneously across any distance, so if I get imprisoned I can wire somebody diamonds from my omnipresent chest. This is how you would create a balanced counterpart to bitco
in.

Bitcoin is so good that this guy is begging for a counterpart of it in-game.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

Why fucking bother? He can finance a prison-break with bitcoins. Yet another service he can acquire without a single iota of effort exerted in-game.

Seriously, just give up trying to fix prison mod. It's going to become increasingly irrelevant the more bitcoins get used, except against non-bitcoin users. Might as well just toss it.


lolololol

This game looks like the bastard child of an orgy among Civilization, Sim City and Doom.

It is kind of funny how most of these people complaining about Bitcoin being "cheating" propose as a "solution" the blackmail and robbing of Bitcoin users in-game.

Quote
However, the more popular concern seems to be that people can use Bitcoin as an invisible, unbreakable chest outside of the Minecraft world, unavailable to other players, in which Bitcoin users may keep their valuables.

Quote
While it is true that value in the form of Bitcoins cannot (barring hacking) be taken without a user's consent, that does not mean it cannot be stolen...  Here are just a few of the ways that Bitcoins can be taken:

    * Threaten to attack a town, unless Bitcoins are transferred to you.
    * Attack a town, and occupy it until Bitcoins are transferred to you.
    * Harass and grief a town, and demand a payment in Bitcoins to stop.
    * Imprison a player, and require a payment in Bitcoins in order to release them.
    * Threaten to release the coordinates of a secret location, unless a payment of Bitcoins is made.
    * Pretend to engage in a Bitcoin-denominated business transaction, but take the Bitcoins and run.
    * Set a large bounty of diamonds on someone, which you promise to remove if they give you their Bitcoins.
    * And many more!

Quote
The seller is compensated with something that still has influence in the world but is not contained within the world and does not have to be protected in the world, unlike an in-game currency like Iron that honest people use.

tl;dr: Using Bitcoin is cheating because it prevents me from robbing you.
