Hey guys,

The panel went super well! Jered and I had a standing room only presentation, Philips Rosedale (Founder of Second Life and Linden Dollars) was totally pro-Bitcoin and was on our panel as well and gave a great perspective of Bitcoin and that of his Linden Dollar Monetary Policy.

Thanks for everyone who came to represent. We had a fantastic and unexpected Bitcoin turnout, excited to hang out with you guys some more!

I can honestly tell you, and with no exaggeration Bitcoin is the undertone of everyones conversations. With the anonymous Bitcoin sponsorship which got a banner on the same wall as everyone else. People really like the idea and the understanding behind Bitcoin.

Twitter is abuzz right now about Bitcoin! https://twitter.com/#!/search/%23futureofmoney%20bitcoin

This is what I asked a VP at Amex https://twitter.com/#!/CharlieShrem/status/194466803081162753

....and this is what we were asked in return  Grin

Jered and I did a bunch of interviews after, good press loving the pro-Bitcoin atmosphere

Overall amazing



There will be some video/audio soon, gotta get back to it!

Kind of like Paynearme vouchers in 7-11? That'd be awesome. There is of course, one problem: Online gambling. All the prepaid vouchers in US have to promise they can't be used to gamble online. Paysafecard had to make special USD vouchers that no online gambling site can use, same with Paynearme.

If you can get around this would be epic, Ukash will be pissed they can't get into the US market and have been trying for years

Is Bitcoin considered money as far as gambling goes? This is one big step for Bitcoin.

Thanks for the updates Yankee.

Getting more people involved by making it more accessible within our current monetary framework is a good step for Bitcoin. This will definately increase Bitcoin awareness for sure. For the next level or step we need to be able to broadcast buy and sell offers, maybe in the blockchain with something like Namecoin along with Escrow services. This will move Bitcoin away from being a commodity or stock and towards becoming a currency that can compete against other FIAT systems throughout the world.

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

I can verify that bitcoin was often a topic of conversation today.  People from Amex and Intuit are well aware of bitcoin and what we are doing.  They are all in a wait and see attitude.

They are all in a wait and see attitude.
And we are in a fed up and moving on attitude. I wonder exactly what they think waiting-and-seeing is going to accomplish?

Because Bitcoin is, in their mind, not a currency yet, just some small trading fund to invest in, and they are right. Total Bitcoin value needs to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars before they're in, if it's not killed off by those who have Bitcoin by the short and curlies first.

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.

Quite cool.

I see the most difficult part of Bitcoin acceptance being the difficulty in obtaining them.

How will they be priced at checkout?

I still can't believe how often I heard "Bitcoin" at that conference. Most people knew all about it.
I also only recall hearing "Silk Road" once and it didn't turn in to the 20 minute debate that it would have 6 months ago.
I believe people are actually starting to discuss the potential (and existing) real world uses for Bitcoin instead of focusing on what makes the biggest headline.

its very apparent to me that Silicon Valley finance companies take a different attitude towards Bitcoin than the NY Banks.  I was equally impressed with the knowledge and general attitude towards bitcoin at this event.  I'll be at the next one!

Right? Even California banks take a different attitide.

A banker walked up to me and said he knows all about Bitcoin and our business model and would be happy to be our bankers. WTF I have to beg NY Banks!
