worse. they've had a bird's eye view of the shitfest for three years, they've seen (and occasionally predicted) every scandal, scam, and gently caress up.

also, i've admitted everything to the fbi, but just in case, i'm also going to confess to all of these crimes here on reddit.

i wonder what would happen if the fbi called up coinbase (or whoever) and said "we have a bitcoin address that was used to purchase child abuse images, and it received its funds from you, can you give us what we need or do we need to talk to a judge?"

as much as i hate to say it given the circumstance, i'd hope they'd be told to get a warrant.

of course once they had one i'd fully expect coinbase to roll over and give them everything

What's funny in a way is that I remember when I was cruising odesk for lovely writing jobs I saw several saying "write articles about... bitcoin"

I briefly considered the matter as I was rather hard up at the time, but I eventually decided that it would be more honorable to starve

i don't know, i think being an insidious 5th column agent working to undermine bitcoin from within could be satisfying. i'm willing to be you could get away with a lot given the average intelligence and reading comprehension level of bitcoiners

The problems were threefold

1. There was actually strong editorial control, apparently
2. The rates were dismally low, it was definitely pitched to try to get the folks who grind this stuff out en masse in India or something and for whom $5 for a 400 word article is actually excellent pay, locally at least
3. I suspect somehow that bitcoiners would be even more likely than the average freelance job poster to simply take your work and not pay you, or worse, pay you in butts

yeah, i can see how 2 and 3 would be dealbreakers.

its possible that some lots will go for under market value, it's possible there won't be a dumb crazy rich person like tim draper to buy every lot of them all and just hold them forever. if someone manages to get an auctioned lot for under market value, it's worth it for them to make a quick profit, if enough people get a lot it's possible some will become liquid due to someone needing money, etc. and in the end the sale of all the seized lots keep any serious bigtime buyer from trying to do it on an exchange where the cost would go up if they did it.

this is every bitcoiner's profitability scenario meshed into one.
