I'm just telling you on what not to look out for if you are concerned about the longevity of BTCs value. What you are reading into my posts is pure conjecture. A hypothetical bitcoin killer has too many possible attributes to name them all, but naming the attributes it wouldn't have is easy.  Wink

The problem with this analogy is that there isn't a 'bartender' in Bitcoin. This is why Solidcoin used trusted nodes. The argument is how do we implement a bartender with the least centralization possible?

Perhaps something like this: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=91183.0

Love the wild wild west analogy.

Like it or hate it but when it come to this kind of coin, might makes right. Manage your exposure accordingly, I'm content with things the way they are.
