I think the situation in Spain has potential for bitcoin, but, i think not many people will care about looking into it in the first place.
Looking at the maps of bitcoin nodes it looks like its growing exponentially.

Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't those people protesting in Spain protesting against government austerity measures? Because if I'm correct and they are first of all I have zero sympathy for them and 2nd of all I wouldn't want Bitcoin to get associated with socialists in anyway shape or form.

My personality type: INTJ - please forgive my weaknesses (Not naturally in tune with others feelings; may be insensitive at times, tend to respond to conflict with logic and reason, tend to believe I'm always right)

A protest doesn't seem like the right way to spread this anyhow.

What, and being associated with right libertarians is any better for Bitcoin's image? It's more important that Bitcoin become more widely used than to quibble about who is using it.

You really are something else, you know that?  There are major pieces of human reality missing inside of your head, this is my honest opinion.

People are protesting against the bankers stealing from the pool of resources their society puts aside to spend on its common goods; schools, roads, healthcare, purchasing power and the like, the kind of services and freedoms that help a society to function that have been won over the years by the common man and womans passion for life through unending political motion and all you can do is piss all over it with your Sociopathic Austrian-School Loonspudery.

I salute the marching Spaniards, they know their rights, they know what's important to them, unlike the hordes of deluded socialism-sneering Randbots they know that government has a purpose markets alone cannot understand, they pay for their government and as such they know that it must always be made to serve them. So they march.

You claim to hate the 'banksters' but all the while you spout the kind of inane guff only the likes of Goldman fucking Sachs or JP shitting Morgan could secretly gleefully approve of. You make me sick.



Hail to the Spanish protesters, they have my sincere respect. Thank fuck somebody's awake.

"No Pasarán!"

I agree. In my opinion there is nothing inherently political about bitcoin itself. It's money for fucks sake, everyone likes money, everyone finds it useful.

All the same, no need to keep quiet in the face of Libertards upchucking their psycopathy all over it.

ITT: liberals who think government socialist policies benefit society.

What rights are they protesting? the right to receive other peoples money?

Wealth redistributing policies break the very market forces that produce wealth. You cry about the poor, etc, then advocate a socialist system which creates poverty and enables the likes of JP Morgan to suck our wealth.

grow a brain and join the dots. you make me sick!

Egalitarianism clashes against the libertarian economist thought process of maximizing wealth for everybody.

The free market does not provide fairness.

It is a mistake to think that technologies have no political consequence. If bitcoin drive us toward a libertarian future, than it is apt to call it a libertarian technology.

The funny thing about this is the top tax bracket and growth rates during World War II and the McCarthy era. McCarthy was a socialist, apparently.

Taxes do a good job of buying civilization. Maybe there's a better way, but libertarians haven't presented one.

The technology itself is neutral. The decision to make it deflationary is distinctly libertarian, but that's not a reflection of the technology, just a choice of the original author. I could build a demurrage or inflation based blockchain, and, with time, I think it would do better than bitcoin. But my issue is I don't think swallowing a chunk of the world's CPU power is the right way to go.

The technology having political consequence - yes. But that may not have the same political consequences as its author intended. Reality is fickle like that.

You really are something else, you know that? ..

Read my signature. I really don't care about your whining. I have learned through Austrian economics how the world works and in my ideal kind of a society you'd work hard and most importantly you'd keep the fruits of your labor. Having people doing nothing for whatever reason and getting subsidized by the government is 100% a proven recipe for failure. And that's an indisputable fact: you always, always get more of what you subsidize, ALWAYS!

Now I'm not against people trying to express their frustration with the current conditions per se. Au contraire! I'm all for it. What bothers me is their proposed solutions which however well intentioned are proven to have horrendous consequences for the general welfare of society. And I will never ever EVER in any way shape or form support people who are advocating such policies. Not in a million years, and even if babies have to starve and die in front me I will not do it.


Also if Bitcoin was not designed to have a fixed limit of supply it wouldn't even interest me. It is one of the main reasons why I find it extremely appealing which is the fact that no one on the whole planet can steal from me through inflation.

What, and being associated with right libertarians is any better for Bitcoin's image? It's more important that Bitcoin become more widely used than to quibble about who is using it.

Hmm I see your point. I guess you are right. We don't have to endorse their ideas in order to introduce Bitcoin to them. Yeah maybe I was wrong. I just can't stand their ideology, that's all.

Come on guys.  Let's make a better future.  Fighting only serves to divide in favor of those who wield power.  There has to be some common ground where we can improve things.

I used to think this too. I know these people don't have it all figured out, but consider this. If I come to you and promise to take care of your needs if you give me your schools, your roads, your money, and then make you buy an expensive license for everything more complicated than walking alone and your needs aren't met and you aren't making a move to give me back all those things and leave me alone then I'm going to make demands on you. These aren't people clamoring for the creation of a government (though maybe they have and would again I don't know) they are demanding something that probably doesn't total even to all government buildings and land let alone all past squandered wealth.

Doesn't seem like the venue to spread bitcoin. It's kind of a thinking thing.
