why are you people posting in this thread and not playing bitcoin billionaire?

I played it for 5 minutes but then my hand started to burn so I had to put my phone down, I have no idea why this could be.

Just kidding, don't want to put anyone off playing this obviously awesome game, but I was wondering if it's the simulation of a true libertarian dream: do you do stuff to earn bitcoins, and then when you walk down the street you have to pay the sidewalk? I'd really love to see a game that simulates what the libertarians dream of (well, not just the "I'm a billionaire" bit), I can kind of imagine lots of updates like "had to tweak cost of walking on sidewalk because new players instantly got killed by murderdrones for not paying the sidewalk", "version 100: still can't seem tweak all the costs in such a way that players can survive for more than 30 seconds without being killed by drones", ...

Here's what the game looks like in my head:

You're so close. The only thing you can do in the game is take a step on the sidewalk and immediately be killed by murderdrones because you don't have any money to pay them. That's it that's the entire game.

It's happening. SR2 seized by DoJ. Are we safe? (self.SilkRoad)

submitted 8 hours ago by somechrisguy

This is horrible news. I am so thankful that I got my last couple of orders in yesterday... I really hope they come through as I will have no way of contacting the vendors. Are we safe? What does this mean for us?

quote:

[]whothisguy 1 point an hour ago

Wow. This is the first time I haven't been screwed by my poor timing. I lost money on the first seizure, the hack, and ended up losing an order due to DDOS attacks when a vendor ripped me off.

quote:

[]RelapzZ 1 point an hour ago

Sorry I'm new to Reddit but its the only site I know of that discusses silkroad. I placed in order yesterday with a vendor and want to know if there is a possible way to get in touch with him via tour? Isn't there a SR forum that is only accessible through Tor? The vendor I'm buying from has a page set up to discuss business matters in case SR ever went down. Am I allowed to say a vendors name out loud on this site because he is a pretty popular LSD dealer on SR so someone ought to know him and have access to the link where he said to message him in case SR ever went down.

quote:

[]A-LittleAboveAverage 1 point 2 hours ago

Serious question, can the BTC addresses used to add funds so SR be traced right back to the account it came from? That would have all the personal info on it... helpp

[]A-LittleAboveAverage 1 point 2 hours ago

Okay yeah I intentionally (and stupidly) didnt use another tumbling service just because SR had one, even though they said you should use another. But I only made 4 small purchases for my first time ever and then this happened. One of them was not shipped yet either. Anyway as long as they dont try to get the little guys, like myself I hope it will all be okay. This is definitely not the time in my life I want to get hosed for this kind of poo poo. Things were finally looking in the clear.

ostentatious purchases way beyond your means seem like a great way to get caught to me

that the model s was way above his means is why they included it in the affidavit, to further establish that he was doing shady poo poo and that they should be allowed to arrest him

what ive read about drug dealing and other illicit economy stuff is that its real hard to spend the money you make unless youve put the effort into set up a really good laundering system, so you end up spending all your cash on dumb flashy poo poo that costs less than $1000. i think its one of the reasons drug dealers have a reputation for dressing in sharp clothes and wearing a lot of jewelry and going to clubs comes from - there really isnt much else they can do with their money

and now you know where that guy in college who had one of every video game system and a continuous supply of all the latest games could afford all the stuff

you can also willingly sell yourself into slavery (sexual or otherwise) so that you can afford to walk on the sidewalk far enough to buy food from the store with the lowest incidence of food poisoning this month (information which you also had to pay for)

rick, the guy who runs the pawn stars pawn shop, has a book out where he makes the claim that the reasons pimps wear flashy rings and stuff is because cops don't confiscate them and so they can always hand an expensive ring to a friend to go pawn for bail.

idk if drug dealers have (some of) the same thought process i just like the idea of tactical pimp jewelry.

as an ex-irl (and convicted) drug dealer i can tell you its not hard to spend lots of cash. i bought a few 10k+ cars and trucks in cash, insurance companies don't ask where you work or where the money comes from and neither do dealerships. laundering lots of money isnt very hard but most small-timer drug dealers dont make enough to launder and just end up buying expensive clothes. i paid for college with drug money.

this kinda makes sense but most drug dealers just keep a bunch of cash, in more than one location if you're not absolutely retarded, so if your house gets raided you at least have get-on-your-feet-and-pay-the-lawyer money

high end dealers like land rover, BMW, ME/BE do care about where the money comes from. their franchise agreements require them to vet buyers paying in cash. straw buyers reselling to china is big business.
