I can understand people selling at tops to buy at dips. But the stupidity of people selling at bottoms never ceases to amaze me.

It doesn't surprise me really...

When I first came into BTC @ $50 I was nervous because the cryptocurrency concept was so foreign to me
As a result, I was very bearish, and took some small losses
Thanks to this thread, I learned that history was repeating itself
I noticed the same attention and behaviors towards LTC that I saw with BTC before it blew up
I put half of my BTC into LTC on Monday night @ $1, woke up to find it @ $4, and quickly sold all my LTC for BTC

Since then I have been banking on their bearish behavior in a bull market... thanks Wall Observer!

Just so you know London's Biggest Conversation talk radio channel http://www.lbc.co.uk/ are currently doing a piece on Bitcoin.  Impressive so far...
Update:  It was a pretty good hour all in all which covered Bitcoin, baldness and bands we wish we would have seen live! Smiley
The host had learned about it from listening to Max Keiser and from tomorrow's headlines (hint hint!) and seemed excited about its revolutionary potential along with online petitions etc. 'tomorrow's means of street protest' which I thought was quite a nice analogy.

Caller 1 was a restauranteur who said it was rubbish because it wasn't backed by anything (to which the host responded neither is the pound) and that its value would disappear as soon as it was out of fashion and that any idiot who tried to pay for their meal at his place would be... anyhow, if someone gave him one bitcoin how would he pay their change?  In pounds?  The host was also under the impression a Bitcoin was 'about the size of a two pence piece'.

Caller 2 was me who tried to keep talking to get as much in as I could first explaining physical bitcoins was what he was talking about was just one minor means of storing bitcoins, other options being wallets on pcs, on smartphones, on a printed piece of paper and as a brain wallet which could be carried anywhere in the world.  Also (although I don't recollect using any full stops!)  I was talking about it being used as a fast cheap international wire equivlent or its use to buy things mainly on-line and as in the case of the restauranteur paying with smartphone with QR code holding address and value and tip being added and BitPay meaning he could offer the service to customers without being exposed to Bitcoin.  I was asked whether it is a 'legitimate currency' given so few places accept it.  I said it was early days that if you wanted to find a restaurant to pay in Bitcoin you might need to research on the internet first but I also mentioned Bitcoin street in Berlin and the new Jeep dealership in the US accepting Bitcoin.  I finished by talking about the hit piece on FT and me being OK with Banksters being stuck in their old paradigms because if they're late to the game all those who bought before them will benefit so the bankers will end up paying something back for the value they destroyed by their antics with fiat!

Caller 3 was a miner who talked well about distributed network providing security, confirming transactions and receiving new coin as reward.

Caller 4 was someone who had looked into it and was puzzled if the inventors were so anti normal money why were they making a fortune in normal money by exchanging their bitcoin for them?!  The host was unable to answer so brought on...

Caller 5 who has been into Bitcoin since 2010 and explained about the origins but that mining was now done by a community.  However caller 4 still did not understand why people if they were so into bitcoin would sell it for normal money and was suspicious of it still, which is fair enough.  Caller 5 also mentioned the experimental nature of it which the host repeated as a word of warning to close.

Very impressed with the how the whole thing went and I will admit to being quite pleased by my own bit too Smiley

If you have a machine on 24/7 why not have a full Bitcoin client running on it to support the network?

Yes that would be great.  Also, does anyone know how to make a podcast feed of all podcasts episodes that mention bitcoin in the title?

Excellent, sounds like you did really well and more importantly that it was an independent and not-too-alarmist discussion about Bitcoin!

GOX HAS SPOKEN

Quote
MtGox.com ‏@MtGox 48s
@binarybits @dksdan can confirm we are eating ddos right now, and for some reason Prolexic didn't block it

This has been totally fucking obvious for over 8 hours. Way to communicate clearly.
Exactly, these fools have left an entire market, full of people who are worried about their money, CLUELESS for 8 hours. Disgusting communication and customer service. It's like their are scared telling the truth about the DDOS attack will scare people or something. OR perhaps they don't even give a shit about talking to their customers to reassure them and it never even crossed their minds.

I'm printing t-shirts:

GOX SUCKS COX!

Who wants one? Cheesy

Thanks guys - and I have cross posted this too to here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=166512.msg1736319 . Unfortunately it looks like LBC only do highlights as a free podcast with full programmes available only to paying subscribers.

I'm guessing this won't be the last time the host, Anthony Davies, will be bringing this up.  I got the impression he really wanted to understand more!  Even just his  use of bringing a knowledgeable caller in to assist when he couldn't answer a caller's question was so unlike chat show hosts who just want to make their lack of understanding heard!  He did well.

Please be advised that we are heading for another bear-trap, this is very normal in crash recoveries.

BTW, did anyone else notice yesterday's volume obliterated the previous $12m usd mtgox vol to a whopping $19,519,658.71.

Unfortunately it's not something we can really celebrate properly due to the ridiculous circumstances by which it came about.  We will never know whether it would have been more or less had people been able to trade the whole time and had not been forced to trade blind most of the day!

I wish I could do that too. But, here, there's a sort of VAT on silver. So it's effectively suppressed as a means of exchange.

I'll just leave this here.  Picked a hell of a day to do it on!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gG53ATWPJ_Q

But yeah, the whole time I'm thinking why are you being stupid and selling x coins at $120 when you could've easily sold higher.  Or, oh no, price is now $115, I'm going to sell NOW!  Probably will blame it on Gox lag.  Oh well, for those who were prepared, "cheap" coins for them.

Oh Loaded, who art up in Mt. Gox, hallowed be thy name!  Thy dollars rain, thy will be done, on BTCUSD.  Give us this day our daily 10% 30%, and forgive the bears, as we have bought their bitcoins.  And lead us into quadruple digits

This is so stupid, why do they keep dumping? The price is obviously going back up.
