it's preferable to have a hard cap (if you're some random dude and not a legit company) so you don't get hosed at the end of the month. it's like when banks (are legally obligated to) ask you if you want your card to decline or rack up a $40 overdraft fee per purchase

sorry, only in moon language. it's a magazine article from 2011.
it's a very incoherent because it tells how bitcoin mansion guy (Pietilä) met super food enthusiasts.
in the world of of super food people the mansion guy was the most sane.
to be fair even the mansion guy tried to distance himself from the whole attracting 16 year old girl to a weird gentleman's club.
this was because one of the partners in the club accused the girls parents in a blog after the restraining order thing and said "lovely parents <3 I wonder whom we should send to siberia"
mansion guy said "I didnt think anything [and that it would seem so creepy]"

the whole article is full your normal stuff. quotes from mansion guy:
"Silver investors are usually extraordinary. Almost all of them are under 40, male, silent, and very intelligent.".
"I like to hangout with younger people. When they are on fire so am I"
he also wanted to create a high school so that young people could hang around him more.
he states that the whole idea was to recruit people to give him silver that he stores in a vault in a another country.
silver because it can never go down in value. it went down so he is in bitcoin. that can never go down in value.

Can I ask what business you opened? I'd like to start one as well, but I'm afraid the bitcoin economy is too small.

[–]robboywonderLong-term Holder 4 points 14 hours ago*

honestly? i'd rather not say. i don't really want this account associated with the business. who knows what kind of stupid poo poo i've said on reddit.

i'll say this: the bitcoin economy is small but it's a well connected, well informed bunch of people. if you can offer a truly valuable product or service you'll do well. it's still early days for us, so it's hard to say how it's going.

It's Happening... (self.Bitcoin)

submitted 7 hours ago * by Wvspecialkvw

So I'm out to dinner with 4 other couples from the neighborhood and on the way there my wife says "No Bitcoin tonight." So half way through the dinner my wife jokingly says to the table, "You ever hear about Bitcoin?" The neighbor next to her lights up and starts going off about the Fed, inflation, the blockchain and how Bitcoin is competition to the status quo. I sat back, crossed my arms with a poo poo eating grin on my face.

That and the fact I got a text from my sister saying that Bitcoin Billionaire is my nieces favorite new game on her phone and all her friends play it.

It's happening.

in the world of of super food people the mansion guy was the most sane.

that article is purestrain goldsilver. christian cultists, silverbugs, superfoodists, libertarians, cross-fitters, failed artists, 16-year-old girl as the "Managing Partner, Vice President, Communications" of the club, restraining orders, failed food safety inspections...

quote:

There are two bars of silver on the table. Pietilä is speaking in English with a foreign man. He pulls 1180 euros out of his wallet and gives them to the man. Then he takes the bars to the back room.

"It's not my job to assess where the silver is from", Pietilä remarks.

Pietilä went to the Helsinki University of Technology and got involved with a Christian student group.

quote:

In March 2003 Pietilä founded a company, Melkisedek LLC.
[...]
Several members of the [Christian student group] were employed by the company.
One of them was Olli Pakarinen, with whom Pietilä produced the self-funded "Storm Alert of Finance" program for the Christian "Heaven TV7" cable channel in 2006.

In their show, Pietilä and Pakarinen explained that an economical crisis was looming ahead. In their vision the entire financial system would collapse, and alternative means of payment would have to be introduced --- gold and silver. Pietilä determined that silver, in theory, was the best investment.

Pietilä becomes a business angel for a bunch of crazy superfoodists, financing their restaurant with his fellow silverchristians.

quote:

"Our company intends to attract young people, including minors, to live their lives according to the new social media paradigm in which the aim is not to work from 8 to 4 but to earn money in your everyday life, based on the same set of values. We will restore the "American dream", in which an errand boy can, thanks to his skill and hard work, sooner or later become the general manager, without diplomas, without limitations."

not really surprised

quote:

"The state is a perversion", Pietilä explains while munching on pieces of cocoa beans at Silverclub.

"It is an entity whose mission is to take care of the citizens, but through its own action it has managed to destroy everything. Everybody would be incalculably better off if the state was taken out of the way. In this era of social media we have no need for the state."

According to Pietilä, the silver investors do not support democracy. The greatest flaw in his opinion is the way the state lays claim to people's property: taxation is theft, especially when the money is not even spent on something useful.

Silverbank and Shasa avoid many taxes, because following Pietilä's suggestion they do not pay their employees.

what could go wrong?

quote:

His latest idea is to start a Silverclub "high school".

"Once the compulsory eduction is finished, you can do whatever you like."

[...]

He already has a curriculum. During the day the highschoolers could work at the [superfood restaurant] soon to be opened in Helsinki, and in the evening study at Silverclub under the "most eminent and cool" people. They would spend their nights in a dorm. The school would be funded by tuition fees.

[...]

In April Pietilä blogged on how he overdosed on vitamin B3 at the club with a 17-year old girl.

since they wrote the article in 2011 the price of silver has fallen by about 50%

if i had to guess (i have no idea) I would say that they would give high doses of niacin (B3). that would cause flushing, which would synergize nicely with the sauna sessions. no actual effect on your addiction or anything, though.
