That's why I'm bullish.

EDIT: This post went well over some people's heads. I was talking about superior experience of using Bitcoin's core feature: making payments/transferring value which is lightyears ahead of competing proprietary methods. With Bitcoin you just copy/paste or scan QR code, press send and be done, no funky login methods, long forms to fill, restrictions, fees and hidden charges to watch out for. I know the value fluctuates quite a bit, it's still not easy to buy bitcoins in many parts of the world and a lot of people lost their money in hope for unimaginable riches this year, but that's beyond scope of this post. I am only saying that probably nobody actually used Bitcoin to pay someone and thought to himself "this sucks, I like using my bank better". That's all folks.

Beware of anti-bitcoin sentiments; lost job due to bitcoin hating boss (self.Bitcoin)
submitted 2 days ago * by satoshi92

Until recently I worked as an IT admin at a medium sized insurance firm in the midwest with seven locations. The firm offers a range of products and also has a dedicated financial products salesman.

Recently I was doing some on-site maintenance on a server and adding a new ip phone at a branch office. While I was setting up the phone at a receptionists desk I happened to get into a conversation with a customer that was waiting for a meeting with the financial products guy.

Of course I mentioned during the conversation that I was into bitcoin but didn't push the topic. The customer asked me a bunch of questions about bitcoin and I told him about satoshi and how the federal reserve prints money and how inflation is destroying the dollar. I really wasn't pushing it, just rattling off a few comments while I punched in the phone settings. We also talked about college football and other normal stuff. I was just trying to be friendly.

The next day a company VP at the main office asked me why I was giving financial advice to "our clients". I was taken aback and asked what he was talking about. He said the financial products guy met with a client that was supposed to invest six figures in a fund but got cold feet after I spoke to him.

I explained the brief conversation I had with someone in the lobby but told him it was just about football and bitcoin. Right away he got really flustered and said that bitcoin was a scam and only dumb financially illiterate people buy it. I told him, as calmly as I could, that this wasn't the case and many successful CEOs own bitcoin. I also volunteered to show him some Andreas videos to help educate him on bitcoin. He just walked away from me mid-sentence.

Well last Friday which was four days after this conversation, I got fired. No explanation was given at all although I did get three months severance pay (I'll probably invest this in bitcoin as payback).

The only reason I can think I got fired is because I'm into bitcoin and my bosses didn't understand it. It's really frustrating to understand something as complicated as bitcoin but be unable to share this knowledge with others. So many people hate bitcoin without even trying to understand it. I honestly don't understand why people go out of their way to suppress bitcoin. I never bought into all of the conspiracy stuff but now I'm starting to think the existing financial system is beginning to fight back.

One really cool thing they could do would be to require tipping for every comment/submission vote. There was a site called witcoin in 2011 that did that, and it worked pretty well. But this would be such a major change that I doubt they'd actually do it.

Off-topic random thought: Someone should recreate witcoin. How it worked was that upvoting something had a small fixed cost. A large amount of this money would go to the submitter, but some of the money would also go to everyone who upvoted the post previously, with far more money going to people who had upvoted the submission earlier. This encouraged people to patrol new posts and only upvote things that are actually good. A very small percentage of the upvote fee also went to the site, though this was enough to make the site pretty profitable. It was a very fun site IMO. (It was shut down because of unrelated issues experienced by the operator, not due to lack of success/popularity.)

without a trace of any self-awareness, theymos literally describes a pyramid scheme.
