Bitcoin users? Share | 12>0x6a656666 posted:2/24/2013 10:18:41 AM Any bitcoin users out there? Pain in the ass getting ahold of a few to start 'playing' the game of circumventing the Fed.jaguarsky posted:2/24/2013 11:59:18 AM I was getting ready to get into that corner of society but then I noticed that there really was a lot of stuff to do in order to get one's self fully immersed in that subculture. And frankly I am too old and too poor to really give a shit what the fed knows about my finances.bobprin posted:2/24/2013 5:39:59 PM I'll bite.

Pain in the ass getting ahold of a few to start 'playing' the game of circumventing the Fed.lots of luck getting some. there are allot of people hording them thinking the value will go up. there is not enough changing hands right now to keep the currency going. real banks will not touch them and they are of limited use given all the hording going on. there really is no standard exchange rate for them either. In my opinion they are a failed experiment.0x6a656666 posted:2/25/2013 6:51:01 AM This post ended up getting me some bitcoins donated to me on twitter. lolbobprin posted:2/25/2013 6:55:05 AM Maybe.... nah forget it0x6a656666 posted:2/25/2013 6:55:13 AM http://seekingalpha.com/article/1144971-the-ecb-worries-about-competition-from-bitcoins?source=google_news Greater demand for virtual currencies could have a negative impact on the reputation of central banks, according to a report published by the European Central Bank in October last year. Since the report was released, bitcoin has risen more than 55 percent against the dollar and use of the currency has surged. http://venturebeat.com/2013/02/14/reddit-bitcoin/ Community news-sharing site Reddit is the latest in a small (but growing) list of online services that are now accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment. I should make an 'elite' section of paranormalnews.com, only accessible via bitcoin payment. heh0x6a656666 posted:2/25/2013 7:09:29 AM It's probably considered a pyramid scheme because the Japanese mathematician who invented it and disappeared kept the first block, which I guess is worth about 50% of all bitcoin value combined. I had a cool conspiracy in the works in my brain about it when I first started looking into it. Had to do with Japan being attacked somehow for not playing nice with the Fed.bobprin posted:2/25/2013 8:51:34 AM So this is simply imaginary currency with no root value, worth only what others say or think it has. I can take any object and increase its value with a plausable story. " this is the chamber pot used by molly pitcher" someone will want it. Sounds lik e a scheme to me. Watch any episode of antiques roadshow to get my meaning.0x6a656666 posted:2/25/2013 1:55:57 PM In Reply To:bobprin posted:2/25/2013 8:51:34 AM So this is simply imaginary currency with no root value, worth only what others say or think it has.

You c an hold it in your hand and everyone more or less agrees on its worth. My business is conducted with 90% cash. People believe in it. Maybe I should melt down some of this platinum I got laying around and make bob dollars.0x6a656666 posted:2/26/2013 6:38:15 AM Well, you can buy bitcoin debit cards too.
