See this thread, which is locked, and in case you can't understand, the english translation is on the OPs signature.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=80817.0


WTF does he mean? Blackmail? Try to manipulate the exchanges? Fork the blockchain? WHAT?
These guys really need to improve their english if they want the Community to understand them.

Oh, he posted translations in several foreign languages subforums... And for the life of me, I can't even understand their Portuguese also lol

I would not be surprised if it was a 51% attack by the USSR government.

Talk about chain split and community can recover ...

But probably some religious FUDge about price rising to $1000.

I don't think so... 05/11/2012 is  November 5th where I live... Only americans write dates like that, and with that lousy english I really doubt he's from the USA... But I really don't know. None of the languages he posted in, 5 so far + the english in his signature are proper, so who the hell knows where he's from and how does he write dates lol

Could a Moderator please unlock his threads and let hell fall on his head with people questioning him? lol

He's talking about moving the decimal to automatically and immediately increase relative BTC value.

Right now there is a fledgling economy where real goods and services are bought for bitcoins. Because these are also bought in other currencies like the dollar there can be established an exchange rate between bitcoins and other currencies. Right now that exchange rate, according to Mt.Gox is about 1 BTC per 5 USD.

However, there is no hard fast rule about what the exchange quantities should be. This is why the OP talks about "PUTCALL-SPLIT". Puts and calls are terms related to stock options, but the OP really means a "stock-split".

Stock holders generally favor these with little reason to be against them because net worth doesn't go down (it often goes up). If I own 500 shares of GOOGLE and the company does a 2 for 1 stock split then I now own 1000 shares of GOOGLE. I don't own any more of the company because the company also doubles the amount of shares it has total. Meanwhile, in the stock market if the price was $500 per share it will likely drop immediately to $250 per share. I've lost no net worth, but the cool thing about stock splits is for strong companies (like Google) the price per share usually returns to its pre-split levels.

The concept to take away from this is that subjective value can be changed by adjusting ownership quantities with no ill-effect to owners.

Remembering goods and services are now traded for bitcoin: let's say it takes 1 BTC to buy 1 pack of socks, or 10 btc to secure the cheapest thing from Silk Road (I wouldn't know  Tongue). If everyone, at least a good majority, decided to move the decimal 2 places to the left for every BTC transaction they would lose no value, and the sellers of these items would either refuse the change or go out of business, for BTC at least.

The move would have to be coordinated where everybody switched at the same time to catch on. If they did sellers would likely lose no value either because the exchange rate between USD and BTC, like stock splits, would slowly return to the pre-shift level. The difference would be that every BTC holder would have 10 times the unit quantity value-wise (100 BTC would be equivalent to 10,000 BTC).

The OP suggests 05/11/2012 12:00h Greenwich (UK.time) as the coordinated time to switch.

Of course, if the move isn't coordinated it leads to much head scratching and many canceled transactions.

So, why did he locked the threads? And why didn't he explained it like you just did?

He locked the thread because the coordinated time to switch can't be subject to debate if it has any chance of working. (not that it has much chance anyway)

No point on debating the schedule, but at least the validity of the request would need to be debated, no?

I would think so, but he had two choices: 1) Ensure no discussion, and no debate, and hope it's enough for everyone to act. 2) In the attempt to get agreement, allow discussion with risk of many differing views confusing everyone.

It's a very bad french joke or troll.
It is someone familiar with a foreign language writing in english then using 'translate' from google or Chrome.

The gist appears to be some scheme to raise the price of bitcoins by adding double zero's to all transactions on May 12 2012. Unfortunately he is only informing Non-English speakers.

It could be some type of PsyOP by a shadow government to further Agenda 21!

Stay thirsty my friends.

Edit: That's what I get for letting my dog out, acoindr beats me to the gist.

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.
