it's not (which is why i specifically avoided using the word) but the character is there.

the point of thread is to laugh at stupid bitcoin poo poo which nicsho certainly falls under at this point but i can kinda see where fckgw is coming from. nicsho is just a dumbass, he's not actually important to any of this.

If we ignored people because they are dumb and unimportant this thread would be two pages long

this craziness didn't get enough love. bitcoiners are eating this up wholesale and sending this guy a fair amount of money (think $100 last I saw) to fight the statist power.

here's the text version of that mess, "teacher's" comment at the top

quote:

Incomplete! Unacceptable! Bitcoin is a Ponzi scheme! Literally Hitler! If you want any credit you will need to re-write your speech on Ponzi schemes and how Bitcoin is involved.

I believe the biggest technological advancement in my future will be bitcoin is a digital currency that is not backed byany country's central banker of government.

Bitcoin was mentioned in a Paper in 2008 under the name Satoshi Nakamoto and released in 2009. Satoshi Nakamoto is the pseudonymous person or group of People designed and create the original Bitcoin software. my dad, I and the real Person is Nick Szabo a cryptogrepler know for digital currency, but no one can be sure.

Bitcoin has had price ranges from $0.00 to an all time high of 1024.76 in 2010 Hanyecz Loszio Hanyee purchased a pizza for 10,000 Bitcoins which now would be worth about 3,806,000 thanks to expensive[...]

[Page 2]

[...]the goverment can track or tax it. as much as theid like. It's a decentralized currency and my dad says that scares the government because they can't control it.

I don't know everything about bitcoin yet. But my dad teaches me what he can and I try to understand as much as I can. He has different wallets which he uses to save for my college, he has one for me to use - Fasked for my allowance in bitcoin because I want my allowance to rowse. [Handwriting changes here] And he has one he uses to tip people on reddit - his favorite social media site. It's called change tip and he says soon every one will be using it to Pay for goods and send send money to friends, etc. as soon as I have enough I want to tip my friends on facebook like my dad does on reddit. He has fun and People seem to like it.

In conclusion, Bitcoin is going to change the [...]

[Page 3]

[...]hopefully it will remain decentralized many retallers are already accepting Bitcoin making it seem more legit ???? ?? to people who dont believe in it. So if you have any other questions or are instrested in Bitcoin there is pleny of information on you can find onlin. You can buy as little or as much as you want. and thats what I think will be the Biggest technological advancement in my future. my dream is to be a bitcoin Billionaire. thank you!

benperrin117 554 points 20 hours ago

The worst part is he did exactly as the assignment asks. "What do YOU believe will be the biggest technological advancement in your future?"

If you ask someone to write about what they believe, you can't turn around and say "No that's wrong. You were supposed to believe in the same things as me."


phlogistonical 190 points 18 hours ago

His teacher doesn't realize how lucky he is to have a student that is curious about new things, a passionate writer and better informed than the teacher himself.

Also, if the teacher did not agree with the contents, he should have seized the opportunity to have an interesting and educational discussion with your son, and stimulate him to defend his view, rather than to dictate what he should write.

I hope the teacher reads this too.


BitcoinBoo 26 points 20 hours ago

Give him a buck for me and I'll give another $50 if I can get a confirmation on the teacher being fired.

Proposed embargo on Mastercard (self.Bitcoin)
soumis 38 minutes ago par bitemperor
We have all witnessed the truly blatant propaganda piece released by Mastercard recently regarding cryptocurrencies and Mastercard's position.
To sum it up, they are against cryptocurrencies for obvious tyranical and self serving reasons.
I propose anyone who believes in bitcoin and its promise to humanity must stop dealing with Mastercard.
They showed us their true colors and may this be the begining of their downfall.
I will cancel my CIBC Mastercard as soon as i can.

you told it wrong


one dark night in new york a rookie cop was patrolling a spooky dark staircase in a public housing building. then there was a ghost. it booed at him and he was hella startled. then it zoomed all around the room making airplane noises and jammed himself up his butt. then for the rest of his days everywhere he went he had a butt ghost and it wouldn't stop making airplane noises. everyone was hella distracted. eventually someone shot him the end

the moral of this story is

* ghosts
> stay in school
* don't commit hate crimes
* bitcoin

why did i take another look at this guy's twitter



for context: after his first tweets about that debate i sent him an email with the question "What on earth is making you touch this crap?" and he said "Yeah, I kinda had a feeling it was a bad idea. And I seriously didn't mean for it to go that way." i figured that he got the message and that was that but nope CLEARLY i was just telling him not to write an article about it but to go full retard on twitter??!
