it all comes down to. is bitcoin useful / how useful

doesn't matter what speculation does to the price, if bitcoin is not useful its not worth anything...

if we wake up and find that we've had a 51% attack and will require a year for the blockchain to "catch up"  as huge sums of double spend bitcoin start to vanish!

just  how useful will bitcoin be then?

In a grumpy mood after some bad trades man ?

i need to smoke a joint man....

How to know when there are no bears in the market:

When someone makes up ridiculous hypothetical situations that will probably never happen

What if all banks failed in the US and now the dollar is worthless what about then!?!?!??!?!, Probably what will happen is people will move on and find a new form of currency

same as if there was a 51% attack that would take a year for bitcoin to come back, people would move on,

Ive literally never read a post that was a correct trading decision coming from adam

The trick is to be correct more often than a coin-flip turns up heads.

I dont get this quote, are you saying that trading is pretty much just a coinflip and its impossible to accurately make the correct trading decision? ive personally have more correct decision than flipping a coin, Ive read that there are some traders out there with track records in the 90%,

Edit: traders with a higher percentage of correct decisions is usually not day trading

I'm just saying if you're correct more than 50% of the time you'll make money in the long run.

I can't even seem to achieve that (but really have no accurate measurements), so I'd be better off using a coin myself... or maybe "inverse Adam"

I was talking about another big adoption, like wordpress

the right one could send this price to space

Edit:

Also who cares about the little fish, 1 serious player who can actually do something for bitcoin is what Im talking about, not someone whos going to buy and sell a couple coins, i mean some company that will take bitcoin on as a form of payment that will bring big money into the market

Now you're just trolling

Sure..

Or maybe we just have different views of importance, or greater benefit

You think that 100,000 people with 100 dollars will be important to bitcoin when I believe that 1 big whale with millions of dollars will bring more than that to it,

100,000 really crappy customers probably doesnt equate to 1 very very serious one, that is just how I view things,

I think that if a bigger adopter comes into play as holiday says the masses will follow

getting 100,000 people to learn bitcoin is kind of difficult when if you get one huge company to adopt bitcoin that everyone uses everyone will pretty much be forced to find to find out what it is/ does

Edit:
Both are beneficial to bitcoin and I think we can agree that we are both bull on bitcoin, no argument here I want bitcoin to go up I could give a crap less if its a whale or 100,000 people first, either or is going to make it go up and that is what i want,

if we wake up and find that we've had a 51% attack and will require a year for the blockchain to "catch up"  as huge sums of double spend bitcoin start to vanish!

just  how useful will bitcoin be then?

You ought to start thinking in the other direction. Bitcoin is useful. Very useful.
If it gets up into the area of real companies, we are talking the bicoin network being $100 billion (hell ebay is $75bil, visa $100bil+, apple has $100bil in cash on hand, etc)
So what is $100bil divided by 21mil coins? How rapidly would the price of a bitcoin need to double for us to make it there in 3 years? how about a year and a half?
Social media spreads awesomeness like wildfire and bitcoin is spreading from the geeks and early adopters to the sneezers ... the sneezers will take us over that tipping point.



yes i agree!

but we've had a 51% attack b4, and it can happen again ( everything that can go wrong WILL go wrong)... for all we know its happening now, no way to know... don't dismiss this so fast, their will always be the die hard fans tho, and the blockchain will eventually recover, but so much damage will have been done and theirs no stopping this from happening again... infact if price starts to drop hash rate will drop to making it even easy to do this 51% attack... the protocol isn't as robust as they would like you to believe!  Shocked

Umm...so you're saying there's risk? Is there risk in storing wealth in fiat? PMs? Commodities?

Where can I store my wealth that maximizes liquidity & stability, and totally eliminates risk?

Don't worry I won't hold my breath in anticipation of your answer.

I'm just pissed off because i sold on BOTH bear traps....

Put a sign next to your computer to remind you why you got into BTCs to begin with. Fiat sucks, so dumping BTC to obtain more of it should have a purpose other than "BTC has gone up and is due to drop relative to fiat." There's never been anything like BTC before.

What makes bitcoin useful to the point that it is equated to Apple?  I am confused as to why people keep putting high valuations.  I can understand bitcoin price rising due to supply and demand.  However, some of the numbers seem impossible to my little monkey mind.  I would love for bitcoin to run up to some of the numbers suggested as I am saving some bitcoins as a store of wealth.

The usefulness is in the ability to store and transfer wealth with ease. The value of that becomes greater with a higher "market cap" as people with larger balances can take advantage of what bitcoin provides.

For example, with bitcoin at $1, it is not very useful to someone looking to store or transfer $1m, because that kind of volume would drive the price crazy high upon purchasing, and slam it into the ground upon selling, making it risky and not very practical. Someone looking to move $100 in that market would likely have no troubles whatsoever.

So, the higher the price of bitcoin goes, the more useful it becomes to more people. When you hear someone talking about $1000+ bitcoins, it is because they've made this realization and done the math to figure out what kind of bitcoin prices would HAVE to be in place to accomodate even a small percentage of trade within a major marketplace. That is not guaranteed to happen by any means, but a lot a people around here believe that's the path bitcoin is on.

hooo boy

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.
Censorship of e-gold was easy. Censorship of Bitcoin will be… entertaining.

Attention bears: The shake down for your bitcoins will continue. Please continue to sell your feeble hand to stronger buyers.

That will be all.
