1. Bitcoin is a technologically sound project.
2. Bitcoin is unstoppable without end-user prosecution.
3. Bitcoin is the most dangerous open-source project ever created.
4. Bitcoin may be the most dangerous technological project since the internet itself.
5. Bitcoin is a political statement by technotarians (technological libertarians).*
6. Bitcoins will change the world unless governments ban them with harsh penalties.

 Grin


My god, is economic freedom so scary?

Some people are just too afraid of freedom and change.

it is dangerous... in the sense that it cannot be regulated, watched, or enforced.
most of us dont see that as a bad thing, but never for a minute think its not dangerous. In the right hands, the anonymity of bitcoins could finance anything.
consider: Much of the anti-terroism stuff has been hunted and tracked through money trails... with bitcoins, the money trail is almost non-existant. Hundreds of thousands could potentially be funneled through it in to highly warlike organizations such as the US Gov.. er i mean the taliban.

ZOMG Moo!

A lot of people that wouldn't normally bother learning about bitcoins will now due to the sensational headline. Its a good thing in my opinion.

It's the most gamechanging open source project since the Linux kernel, if you ask me. Time will tell if it is even more so.

'Bitcoin is unstoppable without end-user prosecution' is currently the biggest incorrect bitcoin myth.

just asking -do you think it's
incorrect because it is stoppable some other way
or
incorrect because end-users won't/can't be prosecuted?

Banning Bitcoin by governments would only make it more popular.

The real question is: will the governments dare to shut down the whole internet ? Because it is already too late for any other action that could have major effect on Bitcoin economy.
No, seriously.

Yes. It's praise. I am a technotarian--and in fact the creator of the word (I think).

I'm a huge fan of bitcoin and hope that it take hold.

welcome Jason.

enjoyed the article and the twist interview the other day. also loving technotarian - it could have legs.

wondering how far you're belief in bitcoin goes, just as a hypothetical what would you think over someone pitching you for angel funding for something in the bitcoin sphere. would a "bitcoin venture" be fundable. say something like a p2p money-exchange site (thinking something like transferwise.com) for dollars/euro/gbp to bitcoin and vice-versa.

Hi Jason,

I've just realised that you are quite a famous and successful IT entrepreneur.  Welcome on this forum.
