Bitcoin. Opinions/yes/no?
show user profile  Justin101
I think the title is self-explanatory.
I'd be keen to know what other people think of Bitcoin considering
most of us work with computers a lot. Is it money? What is it?

It's money. But you can't buy a snickers bar with it. Well, you can, technically. This one dude bought home delivered pizzas with bitcoins a while back, but that's another story.

I use it a lot.
Its good money and also a community that lets you get better deals than with cash.
Nowadays you can pretty much whatever you want with bitcoin as long as you are in the US. (sadly, I'm from Peru, so most of my purchase either are digital or involve shipping costs too)

Hello there

beautiful ;3

The idea of bit coin is amazing but I don't trust it yet.

^ Agree.

The history, technology, background, creation, development, etc; behind crypto-currencies is mad stimulating to my brain. There needs to be a lot of legwork done until it becomes a stable alternative to cold, hard, government regulated dinero. Fairly certain in the next 80 years or so digital currency will be the norm, and the kids will look back to paper notes and coins as kids today look back to VHS and audio cassettes. That might just be my inner futurologist speaking. Just wish they'd hurry up with quantum computing, picotechnology and cold fusion.

We will discover in years to come that Bitcoin calculations are the government using our PC's to crack 128 bit encryption in a large bot-net.

Pfft they've already hijacked all our phones through SIM cards. Seriously, go find a DefCon talk on the youtubes where some guys reverse engineered the technology inside a SIM card, the little innocuous card you "need" to have inside your phone for it to tap into the cellular towers and what not...

Put it this way, you know that scene in Batman? Where Morgan Freeman goes all bad-ass and turns every single smartphone in Gotham city into a large-scale networked live video feed? Entirely possible with the average consumer "high-end" smart phone.

Interestingly enough, it's a federal (and in other countries, equivalent to) offence to reverse engineer a SIM card because that will involve decoding the master key it (and every other SIM card produced by that provider) uses. They can actually update software, entirely concealed within the SIM card through a form of SMS data packets and initiate java applets tracking all your shit. Meanwhile, everyones losing their marbles because of "Location Settings" on the iPotato or something. The problem is much deeper...

This is all very true. Recently, one of the master keys was leaked, and they had to destroy millions of sims.

The problem for governments is What's-app and ifuckshitmessage and all the encrypted crap we use. Cameron, for example, wants to make encryption illegal, the dumb tosser.

Back to the topic, personally I do not believe that Bitcoin miner processors are just sitting there, and calculate the nothingness.

Congrats, you found my signature.

since after the drop of 70% from last year and the fiasco with China, I would stay away.
