My Goodness!

Nagle, what is the Bitcoin endgame?! It didn’t go to 0 like you promised.

Given the small size of the company, they probably all just work from home offices…or really cheap office space somewhere.  The mailing address service they use is probably just to avoid having to use their home addresses.

Pretty much all bitcoin companies are 1-5 people and all work from home.  over time some will grow and be able to afford more office space.

I use my address for Bit-Pay which Nagle has previously announced, along with the number of bedrooms and bathrooms I have.  Setting up a PO box or other office space is an unnecessary expense and just makes the company look like its got something to hide.

When we get to the point where we have more than a handful of full time staff in the same city, we will get something more official.  It's not necessary right now.

Who cares?

A. They operate from an other country (maybe poland) and registered a UK company for tax (or what ever) reasons.
B. They are a small business (3 people?) and don't need an office. Do you want to use your private address as business contact? I don't!

So don't flatter yourself. You didn't discover the next bitcoin scandal.

All mail addressed to you will be forwarded on either daily or weekly.

So what? Its better and more secure then using a private address because it ensures that mail is processed when the owners are travelling. And think about avoiding all the hassle with changing your address at a plethora of places when you move.

Every small should be organized like that, with an outsources address and mail processing, and not using your home or other non-permanent place.

Think about it: you put your servers at a dedicated collocation hosting place, to get better connectivity, and not in your bedroom or basement. Same with physical address. Owners can travel, move every month, etc, and then who will pick-up your important mail?
Why would a company doing online-only business waste money for an own permanent office and staff, which is completely unnecessary.

Hardly scandalous. In fact, we should be praising them for cutting costs.

And we can start by praising the guy who lives in a trailer in Fly Creek, NY (not Fly Creek, London).
