This thread leads me to believe that no-one really understands bitcoin. Some people profess to know a bit, but actually they only partially understand a small part of it (including me).

So letís stop pretending weíre know even the basics.

Ok.

 


Buy Litecoin.

I toyed with buying some at $400, but of course didn't. The rest is history!

We do.
Who tells you that we'll face armageddon if the financial system were to collapse?
Those that cause the problems in the first place.
Who is against the rise of crypto's because it's AN HONEST alternative to what we have had for many years now forced upon us?
The banks.

We have been absolutely fleeced for decades. Time for a change.


Fair enough but doesnít this prove the point I was making, if the tech can be co-opted by mainstream banking then BITcoins selling point is it ability to sidestep traditional banking. So whether Bitcoin has a role is down to your trust or mistrust in central banks.
To be fair I think you are right about central banks, but controversially for the internet I have no strong opinions on central banks overall only how they act, yep much of the money that was ring fenced for banks through quantitative easing hasnít ended up where it should and has been used to boost bank funds, the lack of investment and low interest rate has lead to investment in property rather than business/industry which has lead to low productivity and a housing crisis. However a national investment bank set up to run in the national interest could solve this and would be accountable through government and elections. More regulation and control rather than less.

Every transaction will forever be verified on the Blockchain by the many computers in the system.
Any fee will be minute compared to the current system as it takes out 'the middle-man', ie the banks.



Currently, my understanding is that transactions are verified through using a network of computers the reward for this is receiving Bitcoins. So why will people still use allocate their computer resources to verifying Bitcoins transaction when they are no longer getting the reward, why not switch to another Crypto currency provider.
We are not going to hit the 21m mark until 2140 apparently, but the reward for mining is halving every 4 years so why not move on to other currencies.

Missed the boat on Bitcoin when I could have picked them up for about $10 a coin, I found it stupidly hard work getting an exchange to work so tried mining them until I realized I couldnt use my PC for gaming all the time it was doing that so quickly gave up.
Been kicking myself ever since.

Im currently sitting on 57 Ripple coins, yeah I know its not a proper crypto coin like bitcoin/litecoin etc and it spits in the face of my inner libertarian but I see Ripple as the Spotify to Bitcoins Napster & we know what happened to Napster.

Banks are getting on board and using it more & more.
Its trading at about $2.50 at the moment making it cheap enough to buy in decent numbers without risking too much money.
Coinbase are going to be selling it soon which is guaranteed to raise the price considerably
Ive convinced myself when it hits coinbase it will hit Bitcoin cash prices ($2400)

The main reason ive jumped on Ripple is there is the same buzz about it now as there was about Bitcoin when I tried to back it years ago.

You worry too much.
There will always be someone willing to take on the task.
Chill

You are probably right but I found it a lot easier to chill before they shut down the silk road

Good to see Warren agrees.
