At least Bitcoin is voluntary . . . unlike the patchwork of dictatorial central bankster fiats that cover the globe like a skin disease. Code is nothing more than speech. Maybe Bitcoin won't be the answer, but they'll have to outlaw speech in order to stop the crypto-anarchists from developing another way around their violence and coercion.

Appears this guy does not understand the difference between paper and data in a computer. There is a difference.The utility of paper cash is good. A correctly based digital CC that precludes state control is EXTREMELY utile.

I wonder why BitCoin chose a gold color to represent the idealized concept. Maybe silver would have sold better.

I wonder if in the future really old bitcoins will be extra valuable to numismatists. Something fun to collect and display?

I'm sure "Maxi-pad" Keiser can help you fund that "PR stunt"!...
Hell if he trolls ZH and has the Tyler(s) in his hip pocket (which he obviously does) you better try to contact him before he sees your post and steals it as his "own" like everything else he does!

I understand each bitcoin is date/time stamped so the original hard drive used by Satoshi Nakamura (CIA, NSA, Fed?) to save the initial coins might be worth something some day.
In reply to "I wonder if in the future by Son of Captain Nemo
Bitcoin is the latest "Fiat Money" fraud, an NSA monitored computers' fiat.
What's the current Bitcoin transaction fee? $100?
I sent 1BTC two nights ago. It cost me £12.50 and took two hours. An international bank wire of the same amount would have cost me more and taken three days.It's high at the moment. It will calm down

In reply to The tulips were real goods by nonclaim
"The tulips were real goods compared to virtual currency."Yesterday, I traded a couple of those tulips for a tube of Liberty Double Eagles.They are much heavier than the bittulips that I used, and I like em alot. They dont take up too much space in my ammo can.I may do this again soon, or I could wait until is gets say to 25K and then get two tubes when i clip off a top.Im likin these tulips
I have no clue about this bitcoin shit, but that seems like a damn good move.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1jpQu6qR1E

chunga, many here suffer from either-or fallacy. You either love it or hate it.To me, its not whether to get into it, but how much. Same wtih Au, Ag, Pb . Fe, etc.This spring I loaded up two Ledger Nano s with about $1K worth of BTC and ETH and gave them to two of my nieces for high school graduation, and now they are worth $13K. I may have just created an actuall retirement account for them 40 years from now. I have a large family, ( 35 nephews and nieces in my neighborhood), and I will start doing this more often. My next will be my two grandchildren.I invested very little. One can buy .1 BTC and not worry to much about the downside. That is what I did. Upside has been very good. THis may allow me to retire.BTW, can you resend me that music link you sent me a ways back? I would like to send it to my daughter to brag about my ZH friends.Mustafa

". I just also hope this doesn't go up in smoke on you."As I said, I didnt put much in, so the down side is very small. And after a few cylinders of Liberty double eagles, it can vanish for all I care.
I don't care about cyptotulips.
I do however have a strong dislike for pumpers who declare tulipcoins or other shit to be better in every way than *both* central bank fiat currencies AND gold, with un-adressed logical self-contradictions everywhere.
If you HONESTLY declare to be a willing participant in a get-rich-quick scheme, accepting all possible outcomes from that Ponzi, go ahead and try your luck!
"Wrong."About what? False the ubiquitousness of false dichotomies?I don't care about cyptotulips."Neither do I. "If you HONESTLY declare to be a willing participant in a get-rich-quick scheme, accepting all possible outcomes from that Ponzi, go ahead and try your luck!"That is called a loaded sentence. It assumes an unupported and unagreed upon assumption. I am willing to participate in the development of blockchain technology. Whatever you call this thing, as i said, I have alreadhy tried my luck, risked little, and have gained alot.
In reply to Wrong.
I don't care about by malek
Wrong on "suffer from either-or fallacy. You either love it or hate it"
Also wrong on loaded sentence. I don't have to repeat my stance in every post: tulipcoins have no intrinsic value as they are backed by nothing, and have about a much utility value as a few TCP packets. Just because it takes many kWh to hash the next tulipcoin block in NO way validates that colossal waste.
Also there are 1000 ways to participate in the development of blockchain, other than for another fiat "currency."
Hopefully you cashed out (some), as in the final tally unrealized profits don't count.
But now you have to give a honest statement if you (or others) should risk more or even MUCH MORE going into tulipcoins or any specific of crypto"currency", and why - if you believe that a few years of "experience" have proven beyond reasonable doubt that tulipcoins are "different this time" and "a whole new paradigm."
In reply to "Wrong."

"Also wrong on loaded sentence. I don't have to repeat my stance in every post: tulipcoins have no intrinsic value as they are backed by nothing, "Angel, no you dont have to repeat it, but stating it as fact loads it."Hopefully you cashed out (some), as in the final tally unrealized profits don't count."If you had read my post you would have learned that I am cashing out a roll of iiberty double eagles. I have already gotten where what litte Ive invested is out. So , it is all profit from now on. "But now you have to give a honest statement if you (or others) should risk more or even MUCH MORE going into tulipcoins or any specific of crypto"currency", and why - if you believe that a few years of "experience" have proven beyond reasonable doubt that tulipcoins are "different this time" and "a whole new paradigm."" I wouldnt risk more. Im risking nothing now. As I said in my post you dont have to sell your house. You can buy .1 BTC. Downside risk is minimal, upside not so much. "if you believe that a few years of "experience" have proven beyond reasonable doubt that tulipcoins are "different this time" and "a whole new paradigm."""I believe in nothing of the sort. I dont care. I took a skew symmetric bet and it has paid off. My puts on DB and SP500 have not.I dont have to "believe" in it to "smell" something interesting. I just put my toe in and the gold seems to pop out.

But if you try to sell the idea to others under false/incomplete/cherry-picked pretenses, it only shows you also don't care about morals.
Or as Denninger succinctly put it recently:
'Fraud is the most-profitable business model today, and has been for close to two decades.'
Enjoy your moral-free world by your own volition.
In reply to "Also wrong on loaded by Mustafa Kemal
"But if you try to sell the idea to others under false/incomplete/cherry-picked pretenses, it only shows you also don't care about morals."Im seling the idea of buying .1 BTC. I dont tink that is dishonest or immoral. In fact, the only reason I post these things here is not to sell anything but because I like my ZH community very much, I wish them prosperity. Even you, Angel. Buy .1 BTC, it wont hurt more than about $1600, I guarantee it.
In reply to "I dont have to "believe" in by malek
Why only BTC, why not some Dogecoin and Sagecoin and everything else that's around?
Why are you playing stupid and dishonestly discuss this as a one-on-one issue,
if in fact you are selling the idea to thousands of readers here, making the amount at risk a lot bigger than $1600?

Just go buy some stawks or munis and STFU about that about that which you know nothing.To everyone else, you can use bitcoin to get gold and vice versa. www.vaultoro.com/?a=105149 Yes, that is a referral link. Thanks for looking.
In reply to Why only BTC, why not some by malek
"Why only BTC,"I like to keep things simple. Shall we discuss ETH, LTC, XRP, IOTA, NEO, OMG, Dash and Monero, and Fuckcoin? I dont think that would add anything but confusion. I have many of them, well not Fuckcoin. "Why only BTC, why not some Dogecoin and Sagecoin and everything else that's around?""and everthing else"? Thats more either or. Im not interested in everything else, nor is everything else is the same category. Dogecoin is a joke."if in fact you are selling the idea to thousands of readers here, making the amount at risk a lot bigger than $1600?"Now, this is the moving target fallacy. Now Im corrupting a bunch of ZH snowflakes is it? You should have more respect for them and yourself. I do.You think ZH takes me THAT seriously? IAnyway, Im not selling anything. Just trying to help. I will stay away from you Angel, I wont bother you any longer.
Do you realize not getting into a get-rich-quick scheme in the first place is even simpler.
And why don't you go all the way towards the psychopath justification: "If they fell for my lies, they deserved to be defrauded."
Just trying to help sorting the wheat from the chaff, sure.

Jan Vermeer's investment in Bitcoin went sour-- should have stuck with his paintings and got out of debt.
What we really need are Bitcoin ornaments in different colors with a lot of sparkle thrown in to boot.Wouldn't hurt to have a tree topper that really dazzles by emiting rainbows, showering the tree with Skittles and spurting sweet smelling Unicorn Farts.
isn't that the same premise as to why gold has been considered to be the best form of money?
