bitcoin - apex predator of money

quote:

$1,000...$350... I couldn't care less. I'm more excited about Bitcoin today than ever before: (self.Bitcoin)
submitted 4 hours ago by CryptoDonDraper

There's a lot of money to be made in money. And this is obviously the path civilization is on now. I have been telling friends and family about Bitcoin for a couple years now.

Only recently have they started coming to me asking questions about it. "I heard Dell is accepting it?" ... "This could be really big, couldn't it? Will Apple Pay start allowing it do you think?"

These are the sorts of questions my non super tech savvy friends are asking. That's encouraging to see. I think we are much closer than we realize. I also do not think we need to worry about the alt coins; 95% of them will die out, the 5% that remain will be the ultimate fail safes in case Bitcoin falls victim to some unforeseen flaw or systemic government/centralized banking infiltration.

I don't see any threats on Bitcoin's horizon. Demand should pick up over the holidays.. lot of media coverage can be expected from Bitcoin Black Friday deals. We are rapidly becoming an apex predator in the financial world. Banks don't like us but they certainly are not laughing any more.

quote:

ORDER

The Court is aware of the growing lack of civility and professionalism among the parties in this case and, therefore, puts the parties on notice of several options available to it if such conduct continues. Through its inherent power to maintain respect and decorum, the Court is granted the flexibility to equitably tailor a sanction that appropriately fits any misconduct. See Plaintiffs’ Baycol Steering Comm. v. Bayer Corp., 419 F.3d 794, 802 (8th Cir. 2005) (recognizing inherent power to sanction after notice and opportunity to be heard). Available sanctions include a lecture from the Court, a monetary penalty, a recommendation by the Court to the appropriate bar association that the attorney be subject to disciplinary action, or a public reprimand directly by the Court and made available on the Court’s website.1 See, e.g., Local Rule 83.6 (discussing attorney discipline). More extreme sanctions include disbarment or contempt findings

The Court recognizes that this is a contentious and vigorously disputed lawsuit. But the Court expects the parties to treat each other, the Temporary Receiver (which is appointed by, and serves as, an officer of the Court), and the Court with professionalism and respect. Name calling, veiled suggestions, ad hominem attacks, and unfounded accusations directed at opposing counsel, the Temporary Receiver, or the Court will not be tolerated and potentially subjects a
party to the above sanctions. The parties, the Temporary Receiver, and the Court have a lot of work to accomplish in a little amount of time. The Court will not allow harassing and unbecoming conduct to distract from the orderly administration of this lawsuit. If it continues to observe inappropriate behavior, the Court will not hesitate to schedule a show cause hearing to address the offending conduct.

IT IS SO ORDERED

how strange. people don't seem to trust that weird "banc" incorporated in panama to handle their bitcoin needs. i wonder why

quote:

Hola fellow Bitcoiners! To make this blunt, we've started a site that allows you to buy Bitcoins with Credit Cards, but it's not working. People aren't buying enough to keep this business alive. What do you think we should change? (self.Bitcoin)
submitted 4 hours ago by BancdeBitcoin

We've started testing the site about a month ago after ~6 months of development and negotiations.

it took LOTS of persuading with the credit companies and banks, we've received a lot of no's and had to adjust and change constantly to keep wit various security/regulation requirements. Credit Cards risk departments seems to think Bitcoin is the Ebola-Nazi-Antichrist.

The initial numbers were good, but the sheer amount of fraud/hacking attempts was overwhelming. We were forced to add buy limits and much harsher verification procedure just to make the site less attractive in the eyes of fraudsters.

We were handling the risk quite well, but it took so much time and effort we had to work 16 hours a day, every day, for a week and a half. We didn't have the money to hire more and more risk specialists, so we had to stop and re-create the entire verification process.

Since we're implemented those changes fraud has dropped drastically. Unfortunately, legit transactions dropped as well.

We could theoretically expose the user to the verification requirements only AFTER the purchase, thus keeping their experience intact and not scaring the off, but that felt like a very lovely move and we try to avoid those.

I'm the father of this site (well, one of the fathers), I think it's perfect and I love it because it's my baby. You however DGAF and can tell it like it is.

What I humbly ask is you feedback:
What would have made you buy from us? What would've made you rage quit? What's great? What's annoying and unusable?

I can't give you much in return for your honest opinion but I will spray Gold on this thread like a MF. However, if we're still up and running in January 1st 2015 - I pledge 10 BTC donation to whatever cause r/Bitcoin will up-vote the most.

Answers to unasked questions:
Currently the site is in German (though all Europeans cards can buy there) and we're working on an English version.

We can't work in the US at the moment, the regulation\legal costs are simply too much for us now.

Should we crowdfund the next Edward Snowden? (self.Bitcoin)
submitted 19 hours ago by 8nam

Rather than waiting until after someone has taken the scary step of coming forward, maybe we can entice insiders. For a prospective whistle-blower, knowing that one might be able to count on some form of "reward" might just be the difference between coming forward or not.

Granted, we'd need to instill plenty of trust in order to attract donations. Maybe we could use an M-of-N address controlled by a number of well-known figures - Glenn Greenwald, Julian Assange, maybe even Edward Snowden himself. Perhaps we'd use lighthouse.

Regardless of the mechanics (which are paramount), do you think this could this work?
