rptl, can I suggest coming on #bitcoin-otc on Freenode? I usually buy & sell Lindens there.

The primary problem with bitcoins is that they have no utility in a material world. I'm not for edible currency or gold, but at some point money's meant to be SPENT.

Second Life was a great idea, it promised a ready virtual reality when I used it four or more years ago. The concept of Bitcoins is an apt parallel: HTML is omnipresent but SL never caught on because people were not willing to make an effort to download, navigate, code, and keep using such a new program.

The primary utility for bitcoins is in a digital world. What would result if Second Life or World of Warcraft had a slowly expanding currency? There would be hacking, there would always be new macros, and probably severe deflation. But that wouldn't break the bank, there would be utility within the game environment as long as the game continued.

Bitcoins are a great idea, they have a messiah, mystery, and authenticity. The problem with the currency is that it doesn't need to replace the US Dollar. A variant can be used in a game world with just the right amount of value and permanence. (I had 50 million Star Wars Galaxies Credits, and the game's servers shut down to run KOTOR Online.)

I wouldn't be surprised to find a large pay to play game using a spamcoins sometime soon.

The first impression I got was that you wrote this as a practice draft to some homework. Seriously of all places and time for discussion, wtf is this shit? After a trade...

I'm done with school but always thinking: I was too old for Pokemon, Blaztoise. Children have always used baseball cards, hockey cards, basketball cards, pogs, magic cards, Yugioh and now newer series from Bandai or Hasbro. "Gotta catch 'em all" sort of defined the game. Kids can imagine value and rarity as easily as adults.

What I mentioned before was that the best place for bitcoin-type currency is in a world of fantasy. Can you imagine if a card game or video game made use of a peer to peer currency? I think it would work, and optimistically it could ingrain a very different monetary system.

"I'm done with school but always thinking: I was too old for Pokemon, Blaztoise." -- Personal choice, clarification, and perhaps a little defensive jab towards my username all in one sentence. I'm OK with this!

However...

"Children have always used [physical items of value bestowed upon through attachment or playability]. Kids can imagine value and rarity as easily as adults." -- Although age is undeniably a factor in growth and wisdom, it doesn't matter to me if you're 17 or 57. I read your posts instead. YOU are having trouble understanding the value, let alone deeper ideas behind a cryptocurrency due to your own mind and experiences walling you in. It shows in everything that is the embodiment of you in this forum (so far).

What I mentioned before was that the best place for bitcoin-type currency is in a world of fantasy. -- Yes I'm fully cognitive, thank you. Can you imagine if a card game or video game made use of a peer to peer currency?
I think it would work, and optimistically it could ingrain a very different monetary system. -- Yes, I concur with this (and we are well on our way)!

I suggest that you step back from the situation and understand the dynamics of bitcoin for what they truly are. At the current, you just seem like another joe dirt with no true desire to understand, but willing to scrutinize. It kind of reminds me of a religious zealot in a foreign place he doesn't agree with having his mind already made up. You may think that you have the mind for this, but that's according to YOUR mind. Stay fresh, venerable one!

I am not in any way hinting that I am > you.

In the words of youth: check yourself before you wreck yourself! Lol.
