definetly kill Hitler. Odds are pretty good that doing so would alter history in such a manner that Bitcoin may not even 'need' to exist. Though some might argue that the lack of one particular evil being would just leave room for another.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

you are forgetting that the third reich with all its atrocities might have had some positive effects on history.

Hitler might have kept the russians busy just to set them back long enough to make the cold war the loss/loss situation it really was.
Then think about the economic growth that happened in the 60's and 70's. those are mostly due to people having to rebuild stuff. And the US profited a lot on that.
A totally other question is how would world population look today with 56 million people and their descendants? Not saying those had to die, but war is one of the last measurements of population control that exist for the human race.
And finally, think about black people in america - would they still be as equal as they are today, if they didnt have the change to get their feet into society by beeing needed due to the war?
And then again, think about all that knowledge that was exported out of germany after the war. Would the US have been able to land on the moon without having wernher von braun? would the germans have shared the concept of nuclear energy(or nuclear weapons) with other nations? would a democratic government have used the powers and responsibilities that come with such a game-changer wisely enough?
last but not least, think about all that basic technology, that all parties in the war developed during the war to keep up with each others. Without the war there would have been far less need for such technology, and thus less government funding for the respective research. our world today might look a lot less civilized as it is with the war.

It's obvious. Buy bitcoins.

Going back and killing Hitler would result in a paradox that could destroy the universe. Talk about irresponsible!

Bitcoin is the ultimate freedom test. It tells you who is giving lip service and who genuinely believes in it.

The idea that deflation causes hoarding (to any problematic degree) is a lie used to justify theft of value from your savings.

that question is stupid. Hitler was, like most people in the newbie section, a sockpuppet.

Sockpuppet is probably harsh, but I agree that seeing a political leader as a mastermind has no honest reasoning behind it. They may be exceptional people who are fit for the purpose of influencing masses but there is no real requirement for them to be something other than that. So yeah, he was a brilliant man, but not irreplaceable.
