On behalf of those who did their research, and didn't delude themselves into buying a fake lottery ticket....We told you so.
>>132353>linking buttcoin.orghaha oh wow mod, you fucked up.buttcoin is SA, they're still mad /g/entoomen rused them from mining bitcoin in 2010 and 2011 when bitcoin was under $1/BTC. we told them bitcoin was a scam and made them some OC and they ran with it. it kept mining difficulty low and we made a shitton of money. pic related.
Everyone will now lose faith in decentralized currency. It truly is a sad day.
>>132381Haha did you see those protestors? They were going to limp-wristedly worry him to death; that's why mtgox is incommunicado.
>>132353Glad to be a part of sticky history. Thanks moot for the board

please die, cryptocurrencies
as someone who never dumped money into bitcoin, someone explain to me what's happening
How incredibly incompetent can mtgox be? This is BASIC ACCOUNTING. If this was true, this is YEARS of incompetence.That's why I think it's fake.

>>132410>largestlel no. bitstamp and huobi are larger
I don't think I ever had faith in a site built for Magic The Gathering.
Shut it down.
Not only did the mt. gox wallet-holders gets screwed, but EVERYONE with bitcoins is losing money right now because of mt. gox's fuckups.Mark Karpeles must be the most hated man on the planet right now who isn't a public figure. I almost feel sorry for the guy, all he wanted to do was play magic the gathering...
This just means it's a good time to buy buttcoins at bargain prices. $488 @ coinbase currently.
>there is a sticky discussing buttcoins/cryptocurrenciesthis board is a fucking failure

>>132417Man, if this is fucking real it's really heavy.They need 750000btc to cover their fucking debts.Holy shit, Satoshi is going to have to come out of retirement to cover this one. I swear to god if we start seeing bitcoin days destroyed in the next few days I'm going to be seriously worried about the future of bitcoin. We will most certainly see a massive crash if this document proves to be real.

>>132449I didn't say any of that.but attacking bitcoin because an exchange fucked up is like saying fiat is pointless because a bank got robbed
>>132450>I'm going to be seriously worriedYou're not worried now? Even after all the problems with Mt Gox and Silk Road 2.0?
>>132443>no huobi>no okcoinhuobi's 24 hour is over 180,000 coins traded. more than mtgox -- the day MTGOX IS FAILING.

Got my coins out like a week before they ended withdrawals. Thank fukkk.
>>132432You're still up gamma?

>>132480>he doesn't know /biz/ was created specifically because of dogecoin
How low will Bitcoin go?I want to buy up a few when it gets low. You guys think it'll bottom out at $200? Lower?
>>132461I'm not particularly worried about BTC as a whole I guess, it's just that the leaked document is saying that they only way they can cover their debts is to get whales to cover them.>support from bitcoin players and the core communitySo if they don't get that, it means that 750,000 btc are now loose in the economy. What that means is anyone's guess but the main thing to worry about is that it's 750K worth of pure market uncertainty. Are they in the hands of one group of people who are going to massively dump them the first chance they get? Are they lost forever? At least the FBI coins are public knowledge, right? This is all just up in the fucking air right now and that's bad for pricing certainty.
>>132484That wasn't me,anyway. The point of my original post was to state that bitcoin is/was NOT a scam.So yes, it sucks that mt Gox was such a colossal fuckup. It doesn't change the fact that crypto/bitcoin is a revolutionary technology.
>stealing all the buttcoins>now buttcoins aren't worth a thingSure, that's a good plan. I wonder who's shekels are behind this.
>>132484are you retarded?http://blogs.wsj.com/moneybeat/2014/02/20/bitbeat-does-bitcoin-really-need-the-winkdex/>Mt. Gox may not be the number-one exchange anymore, but they’re still a big player.pic related doesn't even include huobi which is the LARGEST FUCKING EXCHANGE.
has anyone mentioned huobi yet, they really need more advertising
>>132486I honestly think it will bottom out before that. Too many high-rolling whales who can pump at will and prop up the market.Although the problem is it may not be going up any time soon after because of how many newbie buyers were scared off. Then again, Greed is powerful. So maybe the greater fool will throw in his chips sooner rather than later.
>>132492>750K worth of pure market uncertaintyAnd which such a considerable % of coins in this 'volatile' state, how will Bitcoins ever be backed by major companies? The theory of it is great, but as it stands, Bitcoin has highlighted all the worries one would expect from a non-FIAT currency.
i wonder if anyone has already put up a hit against mtgox for fucking up their wealthi mean there are thousands of bitcoin richfags, right?someone had to do itlel what happens after the owner of mtjew dies?
>>132477Yea, I like to go cycling late at night. Like 11-12am.
>>132501If we removed even 5% of a particular currency circulating and left it in this volatile state, then you can be sure as shit it will lose value. How fucking delusional are you to think otherwise?
So who here actually had coins left on Mt Gox?
>>132397>filename is my reaction when gentiles trust their shekels with Mt. Goy.
I just dropped a grand into 2 Bitcoins so... let's see what happens.
>>132516that has absolutely nothing to do with the statement that mtgox is not the #1 exchange.
If only it were easier to get dollas into exchanges.The only reason that crashes are steep and rises are gradual is because it takes 5 to 9000 business days for people like me to get money order deposits processed by shits like CampBX.
>>132521I had 8 cents USD left over from years ago when dwolla was a viable option.
>>132523You're going to lose a lot of it.I just want to be the first to tell you that if you don't sell now, you will lose more. Just... that's all. This has nowhere to go but down.I was here first.
The bitcoins exchanges need a pooled insurance scheme. Why would any business want to take on this mt gox type risk?
>>132370>the real monopoly money is the fiat federal reserve notes in your pocket
>>132521i dropped 1k into mt goyim early in 2011 and had 100 coins locked up that in ever bothered getting around to withdrawing. i'm a NEET fag and they represent pretty 100% of my net worth.oh well.
>>132444everyone is only 2 co-signers away from any car they want
>>132526And I ammended my comment to "one of the largest". Mt Gox is still a large player in the Bitcoin business. You may not be losing the biggest current player, but you're still losing one of the main ones, and one of the "historically" strong institutions..
>>132508Unfortunately I think there are enough dangerous scum out there, who were already mad at having their drug faucet SR2 being shut down and had their money in Mt. Gox, that it's a possibility.
This is just the tip of the iceburg. We are just hearing about this, but imagine all those people who will wake up tomorrow and hear the news and panic sell. We'll probably see 400 by tomorrow afternoon.
>>132523Don't listen to them, anon. Buy and keep buying! You'll be a millionaire any minute now...
>>132527Yup. All by design. If it was easy than the federal reserve would be bankrupt by now.
>>132511Me too. You ride fixed? Pic related, it's my frame.
Can gox be sued?
>>132508>lel what happens after the owner of mtjew dies?Not shit if he's stepping down as CEO.Guy's gonna have to live in a panic room for the rest of his days though.
>>132542You had nearly $100K worth and never considered to withdraw some?
its genius. pure genius.unregulated industry, take people's money and run.based nippon
Uh-oh>Mt. Gox has confirmed it will file bankruptcy in private discussions with other members of the bitcoin community.it's actually ogre guyshttp://recode.net/2014/02/24/the-mt-gox-bitcoin-exchange-has-disappeared/
>>132580the funniest part was the /g/entooman didn't even test drive it and had no idea how to drive a lambo. he was asking /o/ for driving advice and /o/ was getting butthurt
>>132569That's the risk of the free market. Everyone who bought bit coins knew this was a possibility. You don't need a nanny state to protect you from every bad guy in the world. Sadly statist shills are going to exploit this to the max
>yfw this causes DOGE to go to the moon
>>132536I did what you said... just sold... lost $100. Sucks, oh well... at least I didn't lose $1000!
>>132580>http://www.dailydot.com/business/4chan-bitcoin-lamborghini/now why would you buy a fucking car when cars depreciate the moment they hand over the keyscan you not transfer BTC for USD?
>>132596You'll feel fucking brilliant about it in 24 hours if/when this leaked document is generally accepted as true.
Shit's going down fast.
>>132601It was meant to be a kind of advertisement. And the guy has a lot of bitcoins. And he pretty much bought it when bitcoin was worth the most, so he got quite the deal.
>>132549Good point. Tomorrow will tell the real story. All of this news broke relatively late in the day when the casual bitcoiners were probably not paying close attention.Add on the fact that the status of the 750,000K stolen coins, which at the time we all found out about it would've been worth close to half a BILLION dollars, are not only un-accounted for but could be in the process of being sold RIGHT NOW, gives you a real crisis of confidence in the market unless you're a real true believer in crypto-currencies.
>>132601because he probably cashed out millions of dollars and gave zero fucks?/g/entoomen have been mining since 2010, when you could've made tens or even hundreds of bitcoin using a top-of-the-line vidya ATI card.pic related
>>132603Nothing beats the anticipation and confirmation of an uncertainty swinging in your favor.
>>132613(tens or hundreds per DAY on a ATI 5970 at only the cost of electricity)
>>132607This is just doge coin doing a gravity assist to the moon
Don't you have random blue board people to ban?
>>132616would it not make sense to mine the coins in a country where electricity is cheap?
>>132612>gives you a real crisis of confidence in the market unless you're a real true believer in crypto-currencies.The problem is and always will be 3rd parties because there is zero accountability unless a trend of murders starts happening.
>>132558Probably not, if they keep existing and refuse to pay up, I guess you can, subject to whatever terms you agreed to when you sent the money. But if they declare bankruptcy and go into liquidation, the best you can do is put in a claim as an unsecured creditor with the administrator.In reality though, they're just going to disappear.
>>132385I suspect that some mods go to SA. The first version of the much loved sticky on /fit/ was straight up copied and pasted from SA's fitness board for example.
>>132622yes, in the united states portland residential is like 7cents/kWh.it didn't really matter in 2010. it was highly profitable no matter what even when bitcoin was under $0.10/BTC. you made tens/hundreds of BTC per day and could make $5 per day on an ATI video card if you wanted to sell it then. pretty much everyone ROIed their investment AT THE SELLING PRICE IN 2010 in under a month.you see those DOGE threads? last month you could've paid off a brand new video card in under a month too... that's why people in those threads have like 30+ video cards.
GETTING READY TO BUY SO HARD.
its finally over, mt. goy is kill.Time for a new age of prosperity in a gox-less 2014
Trust Jews, they said. They're good with money, they said.
>>132622Fuck that, just mine on someone else's dime.
>>132636Same. Getting close to my buy point already.
>>132630that would be funny, because there was a semi-secret rizon channel /g/entoomen used to organize disinfo shilling on other sites (and sometimes on /g/ itself) to keep mining difficulty low.the reasoning was, the more people that mined, the fewer BTC share of the pie you would get. i'm fairly certain /g/ lambo guy was in on the disinfo shilling on SA. it was glorious, they fell for it hook line and sinker (it helped that many of us were longtime goons too), and made it especially easy when they started producing their own content/websites/invasions.
>>132648what 'appen 'ere'?
How many bitcoins did you lose today?
>>132538I dunno about that. I put two $5 federal reserve notes in my pocket this morning around 8:00. It's now 11:15 at night and ... oh hey look! They're still there!
>>132554>You ride fixed?No, way too many hills where I live.my bike, it's banged up though cause I got hit by a car riding it awhile back.http://www.bicyclebluebook.com/searchlistingdetail.aspx?id=10634>>132641>Same. Getting close to my buy point already.Cheap can get a whole lot cheaper.
>>132379I would rather support a money that is regulated by the forces of every person that uses it than the monopoly war bucks that you support.
But mtgox has everyone's private information. It seems like they'd know exactly who fucked them over.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=485924.0wolong is an angel compared to the mt.gox owners.
So what does this mean for the future of Bitcoin?
can someone explain to me how this guy has scammed everyone and run off with the money?say he has 750K in BTC .. how does he convert that to real life cash money, so he can go in to hiding?
>>132677(Read 120 times) wonder how much traffic came from /biz/ lurkers
>>132683its uncertain, highly volatile, unregulated and makes little sense when thought about logically.so nothing new.

>>132353It is finished.
>>132443Where do you get such data? Mine is better.http://www.cryptocoincharts.info/v2/markets/info
>>132696yeah but you could always buy gold from somewhere like chinathe gooks could care less whos giving them money
>>132561>Guy's gonna have to live in a panic room for the rest of his days thoughHe will answer the phone with HOW DID YOU GET THIS NUMBER!?!? until he dies
>>132683Nothing. Everyone knew something like this would happen eventually. And now even more people are going to be looking to buy. So nothing is going to happen really. FED types will point at this and say "Ha! I told you Buttcoins were bad!", without realizing that the FED has done 10 times worse than this shit on a nearly generational basis--with everyone's money. So just wait. Bitcoins aren't going anywhere.
>>132685He doesn't have 750K BTC. His business lost 750K BTC from its customers due to how they tracked transactions on their site.Basically someone discovered they could perform double withdrawals due to Gox's incompetence and eventually leaked their funds until they became insolvent. By the time Gox noticed the flaw it was already too late.Now they are in a massive hole and can't payout their customers who wish to take out money or BTC because they don't have them.
>>132717so why not just declare bankruptcy? why is he hiding from everyone?
>>132722he's afraid some of the depositors will pursue "extralegal justice"
>>132717>someone discovered they could perform double withdrawals due to Gox's incompetencecan i get a source for this? ive never heard that happened. not that i dont believe you, just want to read more
>>132722A lot of people just lost a lot of money. He would want to hide while he deals with this in private legal courts.
This is the table that was redacted in the leaked pdf.
lol Bernie Madoff with my money
HOW THE FUCK DO I GET CASH INTO AN EXCHANGE WITHOUT GOING THROUGH SHADY RUSSIAN OR MONEY ORDER DEALS? I NEED TO BE READY TO BUY SHITCOINS AT PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR
You know why there isn't such a thing as widely used private currency /biz/? Sovereignty. Sovereignty allows governments to protect their populace and their machinations through force.If someone tries to fuck up a state's currency, or steal it, or manipulate it beyond an acceptable level, that state can use the rule of law to punish those accountable and prevent such activity to happen again. If another state tries to usurp a state's currency, it can declare war and do whatever is necessary to protect the security and value of their own currency.Businesses aren't sovereign. They can have all the wealth in the world, but ultimately their wealth is only possible due to the security of value offered by their or other state's currency. If they try to use their own currency but have no sovereignty or power to protect it, it will hold no true value.This is why you shouldn't use cryptocurrency, because companies like Mt. Gox can't protect the value of the currency they trade in. It is the most nominal means of exchange imaginable, truly monopoly money. So unless dogecoin has some Abrams tanks to blow eleet hackorz scaming their currency the fuck out, invest in something real. Like Zinc or something.
>>132730>income statement>no balance sheethahahahahahaha oh wow
>>132726Look up transaction malleability for morehttp://finance.fortune.cnn.com/2014/02/21/bitcoin-transaction-malleability/

No saavy bitcoiners had any money in there since 2012.>>132549Price already stabilizing. Cryptpo doesn't run much in 9-5 patterns. The slightest rumor of possible news gets around in minutes, especially anything regarding Gox at the moment since they are failing.
>>132725>>132727i'd have thought that, with the internet, knowledge of this double withdrawals scam would spread like wildfire? how the fuck was it the largest trading platform - something sounds misplaced.

>>132527Why not use http://coinbase.com ? Get it verified, do a purchase (of any size), wait a month, $1,000/week of instant buying power. In the interim, $100/week of instant buying power. These aren't really high limits, but most people around here probably don't spend $1,000/week on BTC. You'll typically wait 30 minutes for it to transfer to another exchange (I use Bitfinex). So, there's a bit of slippage possible.

Holy shit, Just how deluded are these retards?People are buying Bitcoins at the moment, even though media is going to fucking kill it in the coming days. Especially if Gox really doesn't have any money.They don't seem to realize that if general public is scared away, there's going to be no new money coming into this game.Also they seem to think that people who lost money @ Gox are just going to have to buy new coins.Fucking hell..It's like talking to a religious zealot and trying to get him to realize that earth isn't 6000 years old.Fuck these prices, BTC needs to come down to a reasonable level and grow from there, slow and steady.

>>132808keep dreamin' bitch nigga

>>132802>one month's worth of inflation lel also am I the only one who sees potential for a huge gambit here?look:MtGox or whatever it's called declares insolvency due to a large number of coins 'missing' out of its reserves. The missing coins currently have a sizable value because the price of Bitcoin is high. But due to the collapse of MtGox, confidence in Bitcoin plummets, driving the value into the ground. The owner or whoever of MtGox then injects actual liquidity into his company to repurchase coins at a much lower price point from other holders, and subsequently returns them to their owners for a fraction of their current value, effectively blocking extra-legal action and erasing his liability-sheetand fuck am I stoned right now

>>132810except mt goyim followed their predictions a literal tee within a half an hour of the document being leaked
>>132799I don't think you understand. What guarantees that value, exactly? What ensures that cryptocurrency will maintain a value period? It has no intrinsic value, so its nominal like fiat money. But unlike fiat money, its not backed by a government that can physically, forcefully ensure its value is enforced. Its value is only guaranteed by the legitimacy and security of the few exchanges that trade in it, which we learned tonight is worth shit.
>>132737you do realize there will be decentralized exchanges, rite?make sure to pay attention don;t want to see you peasant out on us in old age
>>132827It's irrelevant where it happened. Gox,Stamp,Btc-e whatever.Media has been calling BTC a ponzi scheme for quite some time and now. If "the largest no.1 exchange" goes under and basically takes the money and runs, they are going to have a fucking field day with this.It's going to confirm every negative statement they have given so far.Also normal people who aren't into BTC have changed their views about it during the last year. I've talked with quite a few and they went from "Well that's interesting" to "Well it's just going to crash and it's unstable as hell, not going to buy it. You'll just lose your money!"That to me is a sign that people are being scared away from it and this sure as hell isn't making things any better.>>132851Nice way to write that you dickhole, but I agree.The price was manipulated to those crazy unsustainable heights, and it's going to fall to nothing, or at least to what others consider nothing.I still think that + 300$ BTC is pretty damn good for something you can barely even use.
>>132854butterfly labs owns it now
It's an unregulated market. Sometimes things go out of business. Sometimes you lose money. This is what happens without nanny state coddling. Frankly I think it's a good thing. Fail fast and fail quick.

>>132892having met the twins at a bitcoin conference in real life, i have to say they're kind of odd people. they seem nice and well intentioned though.
>>132875Nothing "guarantees" that value. That's the point. That's the thing you statists don't understand" there need not be a guarantee of value so long as people have faith it is valuable.
>>132797You realize that picture implies that the price will not collapse like a bubble, right? So funny when it was posted here last year and everybody was saying we would see it drop to below $200 for sure.

If faith were enough, I'd accept Jesus and go wander the world in a robe with a Bible.The federal reserve notes in my pocket have something BTC doesn't: legislation. It is illegal - yes, illegal - for an American business to refuse American currency. They HAVE to take my money even if they think it's worthless. BTC has no such guarantee.

>>132918>what is inflationload of good that currency does you xD too bad the state doesn't mandate prices too ;^)
>>132875the value is the network itself, a simple public ledgerWhen you buy a bitcoin you are paying to host and secure the network. Do you really expect people to do that service for you for free? Why?To answer your question, there is nothing "backing" the currency. But their is nothing "backing" the gold price either, people pay just whatever they are willing to pay for it.I am a goldbug, and a little bewildered by bitcoin, but after taking a step back denying that bitcoin is money right now in 2014 is a serious denial issue.
And this friends, is why you don't store your money in a supposedly *secure* online wallet.Seriously, Bitcoin is a fucking flawed concept. (I know this is about the exchange, but the currency itself is just batshit insane)

>>132955Wait, how can it be a record low when the coin began last year at less than twenty bucks?
>>132887that is basically the same basic theme that has been reguiritated about the last monthbasically my take is that, far from being and evil mastermind, most likely Gox got hacked, hopefully not as bad as everyone thinksyour theory does require all the market participants being played like fools, not impossible, but to me its unlikely
Mt. Goy is dead>On 24 February 2014, Mt. Gox's website and Twitter feed were deleted, and internal documents leaked to media reveal that nearly 750,000 bitcoins worth $350 million have been stolen or misappropriated from the exchangelel
>>132958Record low for 2014.
WHY DID ANYONE TRUST MARK KIKEPELES IN THE FIRST PLACE!ONCE AGAIN, SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL WAS DESTROYED BY THE GREED OF A FUCKING JEW!
>>132929No. At the end of the day Gold is still a material, useful in manufacturing processes, with chemical stability and rare.Bitcoin is a manufactured concept. Altcoins are fucking worse, as there's nothing stopping me or tits mcgee or Kanye from making a shitcoin.I think gold is stupid, as a hedge, as a physical "lookee", and as an "investment". At the end of the day though, it fucking actually can be used for something useful.
This coin isn't sustainable because if you lose your private key those coins go out of circulation forever.Watch out for the first currency to use your genetic code as a key. It's going to happen.

>>132804>Holy shit, Just how deluded are these retards?I've never paid attention to the shitcoins, but I've watched pump&dumps on stock message boards before. There's always someone, usually the big swinging dick that's LONG & STRONG BABY, who keeps beating the drum while quietly cashing out. If it's timed correctly, he's sold his entire position by the time everyone else realizes they've been taken for a ride. So you're seeing shit about people buying right now, whether they are or not, that's the message that the people holding the bag right now want out there.
>>132929Gold has thousands of years of history backing it up.Also it has some real life uses, in tech and such.Bitcoin is unsafe as fuck, and there are no laws governing it.It's backed up by wild retard level speculation and traded by panicky teenagers.If you fuck up a transaction, it's gone.If BTC gets stolen or hacked, well tough luck.It has very little real life adoption and it's also slow as hell, that's if you are going to use it in a store or something.It isn't a currency, and probably only 1% of people are treating it as such. And most of those guys are "destroy the governments, hang the bankers! People are going to buy BTC when economy collapses. You'll see!!"Only reason why it has such a fuckhuge following is the get rich quick aspect.I've been playing with it for a year now and made about 20x profit, but I have very little faith in it.It can be snuffed out way too easily, also the price atm is downright crazy.Only reason why we went over 250$ was China, and they said no. Russia said no, and few other shitholes banned it too, and we are still this damn high?Yeah no.Unsustainable and uncertain. This is no real currency, it's a gamble and most people are going to get burned hard.Mostly the "40k$ this year! To the moon" idiots.
>>132929Well, Gold is different because it has real value. It is a precious metal that can be used for electronic components, jewelry, the construction of alloys, etc. This was originally what made the gold standard an attractive means of anchoring the value of a currency, Gold is a good that always the same, and has an inherently high real value; it's pretty useful.I understand the concept of cryptocurrency and how it supports itself, and your'e right in saying that to disregard it as a form of money is misguided. However, its value and ability to maintain value doesn't appear to be very robust as the network is susceptible to human error on a large scale
>>132954you are believing your own BS,there are plenty of things you can buy with bitcoin, and the investment projects like ethereum are so much more interesting than anything I can speculate on with dollars
>>132958its five years old dude
>>132941How many BTC do you have to unload? Be honest.
in the last year:>bitcoin goes up 40x. that's 40 TIMES.>gold drops 25%>all the gold bugs gloating in this threadtoppest of keks
Can someone just explain what happened with the 750k of Bitcoin? Mt.Gox stole them or someone else stole them or what?
>>133013>there are no laws governing it.that's not exactly true. a lot of dudes who believed that are in jail now
>>133016>gold has value because muh electronics and alloysButThat'sWrongIF gold were valued on it's OBJECTIVE ELECTRONIC VALUE it would be less than 1/100th the current priceGold Has Value Because It's A Hedge Against Fiat
>>133009No you fucking stupid fethwipe. This just proves that everything you thought was bad about cryptocoins is worse. The exchanges are shitty, the transactions to get actual money out dubious, the libertards "muh crypto" don't understand that the government is still watching.It's fucking going down. There might be some ashes, and some hipsters, but mainstream media will cover this tomorrow with glee, and normal fags will never touch it(plus, it was too much of a pain in the ass for them anyways).Investor fags discounted it.Normalfags don't want it.and soon, even /autists/ will cry about their losses.
>>133016BzzzzzzzzzzzzttttttttttttttttttWrongGold Is Less Useful Than Copper.Gold IS NOT VALUED for it's "Usefulness"It's VALUED because it is SCARCE and DIVISIBLE and CANNOT BE FORGED.
>>133009That depends entirely on how many people cash out in a complete panic over this. If a metric fuckton of people panic and cash out in the next 24h, Bitcoin is going to crash hard and fast, and everyone buying now thinking they're getting in on a sweet deal are going to be out hundreds or thousands because they assume that what goes down must always come back up, flying completely in the face of logic. Just because Bitcoin is practically backwards of actual currency does not mean its economy is also completely backwards.If 750,000 coin disappears from the public trade sector of BTC's market, but 2,000,000 shows up over the next 24h being sold off in a panic, that's 1,250,000 coins MORE on the public market than before this collapse, meaning the price per coin is going to get driven down very harshly.It depends on just how badly people panic in the next 24 hours.

The only thing that could make this whole thing better is if Mark was assassinated by a guy who accepted his payment in bitcoin. It'd be fucking poetic. It'd be fucking Tarantino level poetic. My sides would never return.
>>132972>not finding the bitcoin network useful>not finding it more useful than gold, when you admit you don't even like gold>k
>>133040I think you mean gold has value OVER AND ABOVE IT'S ACTUAL VALUE(which it -HAS-), due to market sentiment.Gold is not a hedge against fiat. It's not a hedge against inflation
>>133040well, its definitely overvalued. Frankly investing in gold like people do is idiotic, and is more than anything a hold back of old financial wisdom that was relevant before we got off the GS. I was trying to make a larger point about real vs nominal value

Question for someone who doesn't know much about cryptocurrencies:Did everyone currently holding Bitcoins from Mt Gox lose all of them?
>>133075meanwhile, xrp toils away silently for this shitstorm to brew over. I give it a year, maybe two at most.
>>133000depending on your jurisdiction and if paypal deems your activity to be legitimate
Tulips didn't disappear when the prices collapsed.But then again they actually have value because they look pretty. Cryptocoins don't even have that going for them.

>>132925I would buy right now. The price might go lower, sure, but the upside from here is just insanely high. By this time next year we will all either be laughing at how we got scared for no reason cause Gox or trying to find ways to make money other than bitcoin.

If everyone sees it s valuable, what reason do you have to not make use of it? Businesses denying you with bitcoins is the beauty,not the harm, of the currency. The entire reason it is valuable is because it is free and unregulated.
>>133108Could you imagine how fucking mad you'd be if those 'libertarian nerds' you hate so much literally, factually, objectively tricked you out of making an easy six, or even SEVEN or EIGHT figures of free money by mining in 2010/2011/2012 and selling at peaks?Could you imagine the sheer fucking hatred, literally passing up and LOSING the chance to be SET.

>>132353The purpose of this document is to summarize a joint statement to the Bitcoin community regarding Mt.Gox.This tragic violation of the trust of users of Mt.Gox was the result of one company’s actions and does not reflect the resilience or value of bitcoin and the digital currency industry. There are hundreds of trustworthy and responsible companies involved in bitcoin. These companies will continue to build the future of money by making bitcoin more secure and easy to use for consumers and merchants. As with any new industry, there are certain bad actors that need to be weeded out, and that is what we are seeing today. Mtgox has confirmed its issues in private discussions with other members of the bitcoin communityWe are confident, however, that strong Bitcoin companies, led by highly competent teams and backed by credible investors, will continue to thrive, and to fulfill the promise that bitcoin offers as the future of payment in the Internet age.http://blog.coinbase.com/post/77766809700/joint-statement-regarding-mtgox

>>133056No, friend got the bitcoins I sent him and immediately bought some computer parts with them on overstock and tigerdirect. It took me about 15 seconds to send and got there in under an hour. Maybe if you tried it sometime then you might like it, because you are now aware that most people on 4chan have heard of bitcoin but never actually owned any so far.
>>133168only if you want AMD cards. you're not going to be able to buy next-gen nvidia cards. even if coins drop another 4x in value, those cards will still be highly profitable.

>>133167Inflation is a sort of theft. The Fed prints money to increase the money supply and to target ~3% inflation. 3% inflation means you lose 3% of the value of your money every year.Well, without increasing the money supply, the value of the currency appreciates("deflation"). Look at stock values. Stocks function perfectly fine without increasing their share count yearly.Basically, inflation acts to "encourage" people into "riskier investments". Fractional reserve banking doesn't *need inflation, the economy doesn't need inflation. So the finite amount of them is a non-issue.

>>133358Look at your wallet (your real one), your bank accounts, and all your spare cash. Total up *exactly* how much you would be totally okay with losing at this very second. When BTC drops to wherever it stabilizes for a reasonable period of time (48-72 hours), buy as many as you feel safe buying within the limit of the amount of money you would be willing to lose right at that very moment.Don't ever, on any investment, spend more than you can replace or are willing to lose outright.EVE Online is probably the best videogame for learning basic economics.
>>133372>is it better to gamble and lose, or be a NEET?Why is it a binary option? Why gamble on a speculative 1 and 0?Investing, isn't gambling.

It is hilarious how people fall for the same god damn financial Ponzi schemes every time. Price only goes up when more suckers come in. And then you run out of suckers
>>133414jesus fucking christ, read this very carefully: >a lot of bitcoins are missing>this is the equivalent of theft or something to that degree>the actual system of bitcoin is not compromisedin other words you're basically saying that if a store gets robbed, the dollar has been compromised. stop being that retarded

this document looks totally legit.especially the "letter from the ceo" part gave me some serious laughs.Nice pic of Karp you got there.If this doc is legit they totally deserved bankruptcy.
>>133440You are severely downplaying the issue. Keep the proportion on the same level. If literally all of Bank of America's dollars went missing and they were unable to pay out to savers and investors, the dollar would in fact be fucking compromised.
>>133440Don't be retarded, that amount of coins can rape the price to fucking nothing on every known exchange. No merchant will accept a currency like this.
>>133444He never could have withdrawn that from Mt. Gox before they shut down anyway. Nor could he have withdrawn his BTC, either, because they stopped that months ago.He was fucked a long time ago.
>>133438Can someone, perhaps you, explain the difference between keeping it on Mt Gox and keeping it in a wallet on your HDD?Seriously .. why.
>>133444Yeah I bet the guy with 200 tulips or south sea trading company shares thought he was genius at the time too
>>133440replace store with 1/2 the output of a mint for several years and you've got a decent analogy. Would that compromise the dollar? No, because the security features on the bills in your wallet are still there?
>>133461One is not secure and evaporates when Mt Goy doesOne is secure
>>133460Not months... I easily withdrew 320 BTC on 12/30.
>>133440Let's turn this to... JP Morgan.>JP Morgan increases customer wait times>JP Morgan reports that somebody has been stealing electronically from them, is unclear about how this issue affects other banks, temporarily halt withdrawals>JP Morgan is working on fixing issues, withdrawal resume, wait times increase>JP Morgan dissapearsCommence the bank run on all other banks
So can we blame this on the big banks? Who is going to jail for this. It's time for the 1% to pay.
>implying there was ever a exploit>implying mtgox hasn't been transferring the bitcoins to their own wallet>implying they didn't get away with the greatest jew while playing the victim

>>133480>>133502OK but we're talking about VIRTUAL currency here. Cash under the mattress makes sense because you can hold it. Cash in a bank traditionally is safer. How the eff is keeping BTC on an exchange any safer? What. Are. The. Advantages?
>>133478Seriously, people think that a currency based on trust and decentralization, being put in a centralized location run by a select few wasn't a total red flag to a scammer? How fucking retarded do you have to be?>>133489If you put it like that, it sounds like bitcoin is one big decentralized ponzi scheme where anyone with enough lacking morals and greedy enough fingers can swoop in and steal a piece of everyone's pie.
They got their survival of the fittest system and found themselves the prey rather than the predator they imagined themselves.
It's not even the end of the business day in japan. If the report was fake, MtGox surely would have said something. If a bunch of other exchanges incorrectly called out mtgox, they would have said something. Mark must be fucking insane to lead the situation into such a messed up state. Maybe he was threatened by yakuza to give up all his coins.
>>133416>increase your account security now by visiting our security center!This is too fucking much, brb filing a missing persons report for my sides
i don't get why karpeles just upped and left like thiswhy didn't he just continue insider trading on mt goyim then dump his coins on other exchanges for FIAT to regain solvencyi assumed that's what he was doing
>>133503Probably another hour of whales trying to squeeze every last red cent out of newbies who think this is the floor. Then another sell-off to 350 before the pattern repeats.
>>133516I think its similar to the same reason people keep money at PayPal.
>>133501True, but that doesn't apply to Mt Gox, beautifully established over in squinty eyed Japan.I was just trying to describe the... scale, of this issue.But with banks, you pull out money. Which still holds it's value. This is JP Morgan ceasing to exist.... and also somehow our exchange vs the euro falls by 1/2.
>>133516>he mattress makes sense because you can hold it. Cash in a bank traditionally is safer. How the eff is keeping BTC on an exchange any safer?immediately liquidation in the event of a crash.With bitcoin, someone is going to be left holding the bag, you can have the first sell order in, and be the first one out.
>>133516It's not. They were agreeing with you. Keeping BTC on an exchange is a borderline financially suicidal attempt at making a quick buck off of day trading. Nobody put their money into Gox for value security. They did it because they were greedy fucks, and they got what was coming.
>>133372>http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1yv26o/gox_horror_story_thread_how_much_did_you_lose/I recognize that I should be feeling bad about this and sorry for these people.All I feel is sadistic joy.It's fucked up, I know.

>>133536>>133536OK .. am I right in assuming the main reason people left their BTC on exchanges was because there was some kind of hassle/delay/fee charged for withdrawing or inserting or converting USD to BTC for every time/transaction?If so, then I could see why they would leave it there. How much do the exchange take for every $100 they convert into BTC?
Should I ditch my BTC now?
>Yes, come to Mt. Goy. Give us your money and we will get bitshekels for you>Don't worry, the free market would punish us if we just took your money and ran>Thank you, Moishe. Just like Murray Rothbard and Ayn Rand, your people only want the best for usIsn't it funny how people desiring a "decentralized" and "free" currency immediately start trusting a select few exchanges with all their wealth?
>>133499>there's actual use and need for themsilkroad is gone, so there is neither
There are six Mt. Gox threads near the top of Hacker News right now.
The most ironic part of this for me is that I remember how BTC soared after the FEDS said they would leave it alone. Now that everyone has lost their money they are calling for external auditors, investigations, etc. I always thought it was the strangest thing that the price doubled when more uncertainty was introduced. I get Risk/Return, but the risk people are putting up with makes no sense. It really feels like 90% of the BTC community has no basic understanding of finance or security markets.
>>133536>They did it because they were greedy fucks, and they got what was coming.that applies to everyone with BTC.
>>133559No, I've been here before. Those first crashes could be attributed to many things: peak excitement, Silk Road going down, etc. These are things that the evangelists and true believers could wave away as saying "It's part of the system".This is slightly different. This will validate so many media accusations...
>>133578better than the usual>give 10% equity to YC for mcdonalds wages, it's totally a good deal guise >worthless benchmarks>bullshit about motivation>e-penis stroking look how cool i am
>>133588>Now that everyone has lost their money they are calling for external auditors, investigations, etc.No they aren't. They don't believe in statist things like investigations and regulations.
It's really quite fascinating how true this graph is for all bubbles. Says something about human nature.Does anyone have any literature or ebooks I can read that talks about the psychology of economics and speculative bubbles?
>>133537that guy that lost 5000BTC, I linked him to this thread, maybe he will show up
Hooray for two things:A. Not investing in Bitcoin. Shit's already too old and abused to be a stable investment.B. Never actually mining with the intent of making profit.I do this in my free time, it's very hard for me to lose much money in this market (Except in electricity bills, of course).
To anyone who lost money on btc, have u considered that NEETS are the dumb last money in of any bubble
>>133592I don't get it, isn't this exactly the problem that can be waived away as a failure of the exchange institution and not the currency?
>>133598Never heard of Reddit??
>>133609It never was an investment, it was a CURRENCY; a medium of exchange. It's their own fault that idiots lost so much money because they can't understand that simple fact.
>>133618external auditors are not government agencies.voluntary audits are the free market at work.
>>133619And thus, in this moment I am euphoric. Now everyone else realizes that currency doesn't imply a value.

You at least cash some of that out and have it somewhere secure precisely for something like this. Not doing so is just a failure of common sense and proper precautions.At the end of the day, this is the free market doing what it does. This is literally what he signed up for: a currency with no regulation.

This is why I use Dogecoin.
>>133624Currencies do have value, but unlike money, which has uses outside of a medium of exchange, a currency has no value other than to be exchanged.>>133625It was that too. It's still a currency.

>>133643>only two weeksnigga we've known gox is stupid and in death throes for a while nowim certainly not panicking, this is all according to the plan so far
>>133617Yes, but keep in mind that one of the selling points of this currency is that there isn't any regulation or backing institutions other than user trust.If this was a US bank, then it would be FDIC insured up to $250,000. But since we're dealing with an unregulated currency, anyone who lost money is going to have a nightmare trying to get it back (if ever). How many people do you think will be scared away by that realization?

>>133750It's an addiction, really. It's no different to gambling in a bookies, only the people doing it with BTC have slightly better odds of winning and are a bit smarter.My dad always hated gambling and instilled it in my at a young age
>>133750>He's going to ruin his fucking marriage over this shit.Yeah rip.
>>133763what if i told you a healthy exchange may not be healthy etc
>>133763It's a bit self fulfilling. Everyone expected the price to dip because of this so they all sold to rebuy lower. That's the not idiots. A lot of people are just that stupid.

>>133763all those coins that mtgox was supposed to have exist somewhere and there is no info on where they might be. It'd be retarded not to sell, the monopoly game is over because it's bedtime.
Question to BTC fagsWhy is a lot of power held in the hands of a few 'exchanges'? I mean what are the overheads of running an exchange - how hard is it to convert your BTC to USD and vice versa?Basically, how come 100 BTC exchanges haven't sprung up? Is it just to do with trust?
>>133796is that weechat (weechat-curses)thought i was the only suckka using that client
This will bottom out at 300USD per BTC to loosely fit a linear path. Screencap this post.
>>133799opening bank accounts is surprisingly difficult
>mtgox plans to rebrand as "gox.com" to fix their imageWhy would they go with that of all things?Why not a better name that brings up no memories of their shitty previous incarnation?
>>133799not knowing about economy of scale through network effectjesus christ you faggots get dumber by the day
>>133800>is that weechatit's based as fuck irssi. using anything else is a sign you're a pleb.
>>133746 exactly, that is why the media backlash against gox won't be as bad as /biz would have you believe, because really only people that lost money are degenerate gamblersits not like the entrepreneurs and developers that are building bitcoins startups lost money in gox, and these are the people that the media interviews
>>133792I'm comfortable with my 2k I made with a $300 initial investment, I'm only risking about $500 at this time anyway, I can live with that with the very likely return. BTC has a dip like this every other month and every single time without fail half of /g/ or now /biz/ claims the world is over and bubbles and reposts the bubble image at least a hundred times.
>>133789Their twitter went down aswell, so unless their sharing admin passwords or a email connected to both got hacked then maybe.>nobody can actually sue mtgox for this nor chargeback accounts
>>133808What's this then?
>>133802>Implying BTC has any value
>>133799BTCfags want to believe that their shit is unregulated and free from control.In reality there are informal, unaccountable institutions. The exchanges mostly dominate how BTC are exchanged to fiat currency and back (not to mention into other alt coins). Mining is dominated by a small number of mining pools with top level mining rigs. Mining rig production is in the hands of what is basically a hardware cartel. It goes on.Apparently, people forgot that power attracts power.
>>133799Getting financial transmitter licenses (one for each US state you want to have customers in) and following anti-terrorism protect-the-children money laundering freedom laws is expensive and a lot of work
>>132536>Some scam site went down that everyone knew was a scam site>You're going to lose a lotUmm...first of all, the market has already reacted for the last few weeks going from 800 to 500, so most of sheeple already sold.Secondly, it is common knowledge that mtgox is scam and I don't get it why people were using it.Thirdly, bitcoin protocol is all fine and transaction mallability is fixed on other sites.Fourthly, be greedy when others are fearful.

>>133763Because inherently, every other exchange have the same power to pull out this gox bullshit situation?
>>133834here, let me show u how a trader would actually do this shit. I am only up because I have trouble sleeping. Only if you can control your emotion though
>>133822I imagine there are thousands of Chinese factories mining coins. I mean shit they do it for Runescape gold.
>>1338182012 is merely the oldest date>>133836Pure speculation, but the amounts and timespan are fun to draw conclusions from. I think it would be odd for a single scammer to funnel everything through a single address.
>>133857Well why not when there is jack shit anyone can ever do about it?
>>133851Not all of them would have the same influence, no one would give any shits if coinrush went down, only a few are big enough. Frankly people using Gox really really had it coming, it was total shit since forever.

The price took a hit, but that's a result of the exchange's fucking incompetence. This doesn't change anything if you believe in the basic premise of a borderless, decentralized currency that is also inflation proof.When a country like Argentina's currency goes to shit that doesn't become a justifiable argument to return to a barter system and do away with 'money' entirely.

I think it was called something like HTTP, something like that. Maybe you heard of it, not sure.

If only you had listened, faggots.Now read this once more and learn something from it:Every time I see a bitcoin thread, I just shake my head and laugh.You severely damaged losers are literally the Bronies of /biz/. You know, that sub-group of 4chan kids who obsess over the preschool girl show My Little Pony? You probably don't know since all of you pathetic losers are far too busy fapping to monetary fantasies and wishing that bitcoin prices rize to 1000.Why on earth would a group of you no-lives cling heavily to something as sad as this? Is there some sort of mental sickness in you guys? Did you not have a childhood? Do you not have a grasp on reality? How can you allow yourselves to deteriorate to this?At first, I figured it was one lonely kid making these threads and bumping all day while crying in the basement for being such a useless waste of life... but then, I realized this isn't one kid doing this. There are at least fifteen of you in these threads that are getting hard over the prices of bitcoin. There isn't any doubt that all of you autists are fat, out of shape, and friendless.Is that the thrill you kids get from these threads? Is it the fact that you can laugh and sing and can't even get off of your bed to empty out your piss bottle? Do you not realize that this board doesn't exist for you and your buttcoin? If not, then WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR FIXATION?I'm speaking for /biz/ as a whole, and possibly, your families as well. Just stop. This isn't healthy. Stop now and try to live a regular life. How embarrassed must your family feel when they have to explain to your aunt and uncle that you lost all your assets playing in the jewcoin market.Just stop already. Quit with the silly threads. OP, delete this thread. Kids, clear your browser history and sell all the bitcoins you have.I am telling you this because I am empathetic and I care. Please listen to me.
>>134047Already bought friend.
>>134064whatst the IRC channel bro
>>134059should it be, we bailout mt gox because theyre too big to fail ? Or would that be the exact opposite of what decentralised currency is about ? If you fail in business you go bust thats how it should be, failure cannot be rewarded.
So, they're all sticking to their guns and going anti-regulation. Good on them. But Mt. Gox didn't "fail" per se, right? I mean, the guys who did it made out like bandits. So they can act like this is a "Speed bump" and "a lesson to be learned" but really, there's absolutely nothing stopping me or anyone else from making a new exchange and fleecing the community again, right? I mean, you need an exchange to use these things, if I understand correctly.

BTC will crash so hard and you will all bite your asses that you didnt invest into something a bit more stable.You might get bucks now - if you sell. But you are not selling, you are holding while MtGoy rapes your market. Raped markets will crash, that's a natural law.Stablecoin is meant to be stable, that's why it is a SAFE investment.So why don't you become clever ONCE in lifetime and get your coins into a save habour like Stablecoin? I made $15k USD from Stablecoin, nobody made anything over $10 with that intrinsically worthless weeaboo satoshi shitcoin.But because you can't into clever. Yes, have fun being raped by woolong.Come at me! Try to hack me you worthless faggots and I'll shut down your fucking internet!

>>134288HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAYou grampafags will be clutching thy aortas when the prices of buttcoin rebound to la luna. FUD faggots don't realize price of insolvent goy has been priced in the past 2 weeks all along. Tonight was just the consolidation after the finalization. 400 was the bottom, hope some of you smart investorfags loaded up while you can. See ya during lunar landing circa Summer '14!!!
can someone explain to me the appeal of bitcoin as a currency?every website takes paypal and credit card and my bank will reimburse me if i get hacked and my funds drainedright now it seems everyone is only on bitcoin as a volatile commodity and has no interest in actually using it as a stable currency
>>134338>right now it seems everyone is only on bitcoin as a volatile commodity and has no interest in actually using it as a stable currencyExactly.>can someone explain to me the appeal of bitcoin as a currency?Secrecy. Which is why the only people who use it as a currency are people who use it to buy drugs.
>The new branding is already complete, and new services such as the Bitpocket wallet are already developed and ready for deployment. >With a new image, team, and offering we believe that it will be a challenge, but is not impossible.

>>134347so what exactly is the end payoff for people? It already hit like 1500 usd per coin at one point when will the ride end?

>>134372the end goal seems to be for 1 bitcoin to be worth thousands of dollars in USD, why would anyone want to use that? Especially when credit cards and bank accounts while not hack proof can be reimbursed

>>134403Bitcoin Status: Child RuinerSeriously though, fuck any parent who gambles with their child funds.
>>134403He deserved it. So fucking stupid.
>>134403Ha, what a moron.
>>134403Any one dumb enough to let a website hold onto there life savings deserves to have it all taken away. The whole point of bitcoin was to be your own banker.
>>134403How did these people convince themselves they weren't gambling?
>>134403haha, this always happens when bitcoin takes a dive or some site gets hacked or some scam finally reveals itself, either way bitcoin is quite fucking risky, but with risk of course can come unmeasurable reward
>>134392>doesnt understand the concepts of interest and getting AWAY from creditWhy not? Bitcoin will continue to get even harder and more expensive to mine as each minute passes, and thus prices will continue to climb concurrently. There will always be bumps along the road (as with any market), but the supply simply cannot and will not satiate demand from a global perspective. Soon as more large scale organizations hop on the inevitable choo choo train, there is no conceiving what kind of prices buttcoin will see even 2 to 3 years from now. It has just begun.
>>134431>and more expensivehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greater_fool_theory

After all the dust has cleared and people realize that nothing fucking changed from what we already knew for the past few months, it will be back up to 700...then soon thereafter into the 800's and eventually to quads by summertime.Printscreen it. Do what you need to do. Everytime btc has experienced a crash, it bounces back harder than ever.

The most prominent Bitcoin exchange appeared to be on the verge of collapse late Monday, raising questions about the future of a volatile marketplace.On Monday night, a number of leading Bitcoin companies jointly announced that Mt. Gox, the largest exchange for most of Bitcoin’s existence, was planning to file for bankruptcy after months of technological problems and what appeared to have been a major theft. A document circulating widely in the Bitcoin world said the company had lost 744,000 Bitcoins in a theft that had gone unnoticed for years. That would be about 6 percent of the 12.4 million Bitcoins in circulation.While Mt. Gox did not respond to numerous requests for comments, and the companies issuing the statement scrambled to determine the exact situation at Mt. Gox, which is based in Japan, the news helped push the price of a single Bitcoin below $500 for the first time since November, when it began a spike that took it above $1,200.But at the same time that the news about Mt. Gox was emerging, a New York firm announced plans to create an exchange that could draw the world’s largest banks into the virtual currency market for the first time.http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/25/business/apparent-theft-at-mt-gox-shakes-bitcoin-world.html?hp
>let's invest our life savings into unregulated online drug money!What could go wrong?
>>134523Let me know when they ever develop a limited hard cap on the total amount of houses created, or the difficulty of building increases. Let me guess...the cost of wetback labor from Home Depot has substantially increased?
MtGox should have died after the $13 -> $1 crash when they got hacked.The world would be a much better place.
>>134528That's the point, numbnuts. All these bitcoin pushers keep insisting that because the price has gone up in the past after a crash, that it will always do so. Just like how for a long time it was considered common knowledge that the housing market always went up, so it was safe to sell junk mortgages.Well, it wasn't. Eventually the housing market did crash and not recover. And the same will be true of Bitcoin. If not now, then in the future.
>tfw you put a minuscule amount of money in, saw it rise to unimaginable highs, and in the end never got anything outShould have played Farmville instead.
get fucking rektI hope all the current coins die horrible deaths.Then I hope a new coin without all the bullshit and flaws emerges a few years later and becomes the futuristic "Credit" we've been waiting for. I hope they learn from their mistakes.
>>134559The thing is though, that Bitcoin is rapidly gaining adoption in the marketplace despite anything that is happening to the price right now.It actually has real-world applications to propel it forward now.It will be months before we see any significant rise in the price again, maybe even a year, but Bitcoin isn't going anywhere. The cat is out of the bag.Even if Bitcoin did die, the technological innovation is presented will live on in one form or another. Either a second generation coin with better features and security will take its place, or the banks will come up with something like it (they have already tried to patent it.)
leave it to a jew to ruin something good
>>134576Someone is launching Credit coin soon, actually.
>>134283That's silkroad 2.0, not done by the original dumbass, and quite possibly an FBI probe. You're a fucking moron if you use silk road today.
>>134592Not him, but Silk Road 2.0 got hacked recently. Shitload of Bitcoin gone.
>>134586Yeah but its not the same, just another bitcoin fork with different variable/hashes.
>>134334>investorfags>touching cryptocoins... everNope, you don't understand the difference between gambling and investing. Enjoy being a poorfag for the rest of your life.
>>134580Any currency as volatile as BitCoin has been to date will never see widespread adoption, despite the furious, masturbatory insistence of its greatness by /tek/ goons and redditors. At best it'll become a minor player in the commodities market.Perhaps some other, more stable cryptocurrency will become useful at some point in the future, although I personally wouldn't hold my breath. But it won't be BitCoin and whatever it is will not be the get-rich-quick-scheme that anon was claiming BitCoin still is.
>>134064Which rich fuck would bother to bail gox out of at least $350M worth of debt? I don't even know if they have a way to verify each persons claim on a coin. Even if they did, how many users would they have to go through. It's a fucking mess and it literally can not be fixed, it is WAY fucking easier to just dust your hands off and walk away.It would be the ULTIMATE publicity stunt though. Think about it. Good guy philanthropist billionaire offers bailout for absolute control of profits and earnings from gox? He shells out a miniscule amount of shekels and sets up his ancestors for life.I'd probably do it if I had a spare billion or two lying around, but I don't. Maybe Bill Gates can get in on this shit and redirect the majority of the profits towards charitable avenues. Use the coin for all the "good in the world" that the retarded fanboy neckbeards claim it to be for.Bitcoin is literally and always will be >investingforplebs that's why it's so fucking volatile.
>>133864The coders or the entire network could decide to reroute those back or to prune the address. Bitcoin is a living breathing digital ecosystem.

>>134651>Sometimes I feel that schools purposely refrain from teaching kids about finance, taxes, being frugal etc.Of course. Everyone needs to CONSUME and live above their means. They can't be educated to learn that this is bad.
>>133900see you at mcdonald emma!
