Hello,

If we want to attract more merchants it is important to determine the demographics of the Bitcoin owners (they need to know who to target). We can actually guess some of it, but it would be better to have real data[1].

To that end, I'm going to run a daily poll from now on. I've chosen an obvious topic to get the ball running, but the usual demographic suspects will follow.

Happy voting!

Please define "geek".

Is a geek someone who runs Linux by choice? Or do they have to live in the basement and rarely emerge? Do geeks need to be in their teens and twenties, or can someone in their 50s or 60s be a geek?

Yes!

Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.
