It's "Bitcoin", not "BitCoin".

I know this because Tyler knows this.

I would love to see those threads being started soon:

What if someone bought up all the existing bitcoins?
Yeah, what if someone tries to start a bitcoin bank? He'll be King then, right?

Won't loss of wallets and the finite amount of bitcoins create excessive deflation, destroying BitCoin?
I expect mine to be lost sometime.. I tend to lose software keys.

What happens if someone starts another blockchain or cryptocurrency?
Will there be a run, or more likely, stampede? I have the feeling that first participants are always better off, so it'd be smart to move as soon as possible.

Could miners collude to give themselves money or fundamentally change the nature of BitCoin?
Right, as in the Wiki said: What if someone decides the outcome in his Bitcoin-Version is 100BTC instead of 50 for mining - and many enough miners decide that they see it that way, too?
Again, everyone who jumps on the train first will be better off, right?

Hrmmm, yes not quite sure if there has been a discussion on that one yet.

"Bitcoin" could easily become it's own word, instead of an almagamation, depending on who you ask I suppose. Time for a new thread!?

It's "Bitcoin", not "BitCoin".

The convention I hold to quite carefully is to call the technology "BitCoin" and the money itself "bitcoins".  This is largely so that even at the beginning of a sentence it can be clear whether I am referring to specific coins or the technology as a whole.  It is an arbitrary choice, but I feel it improves communication of the concepts.

All of those threads are currently under construction--and I will probably be making a master "security" thread at some point that links to both Vlad's and HostFat's methods of backup.  So much to do, so little time!

Just as a reminder to you all I am going to have a mod delete all your posts when this is ready to sticky, so don't be offended!

Pardon my french, but that's stupid. Bitcoin was named by Satoshi, read the original white paper for reference on how to spell it.

Please fix the spelling in your stickied post, do not confuse newbies with your strange ideas.
