  2. I always dreamed of a mecanical on/off button on my iphone / ipad / macbook / pc for the mic & the camera to be shure anything can’t be remotly activated…
    It would make me buy it +++

  3. 1: network effects: true BTC versus fake Bcash: Need a website documenting the network effects (a la trace mayer) and width and depth of the various network effects (document companies/projects) and the source of funding of all of the elements comparing bcash (i.e. bitmain etc.)
    2. Language framing: Need to come to consensus on use of terminology regarding LN as being on or off chain. Perhaps “on chain 2nd layer” is a good and accurate use of language (where as on bitcoin blockchain settlements are “on chain base layer”). And we need to defend the use of language with rational explanation. On chain gives to idea of security. Bcash can do off chain transactions also, but they are truly off chain, not tethered to the main chain.
    3. Metrics to use for comparison: developers working on project. Developer quality rating (previous work and academics, patents, etc).. quality of POW/hashrate. Academic
    Papers. Github activity. Centralization/decentralization of mining. Would love to see a highly experienced OG organize and present in a beautiful/visual way.

  4. gotta love francis – such a great asset for the entire BTC space – great energy, insightful, and articulate.

  5. CMPCO CAMPUSCOIN is going to be the worlds first coin for college. Major partnership announcement in less than 13 hours!!!

  6. The biggest terrorism financer on the planet is the USGovernment. 911 was an inside job. They do this to justify their existence. Study Larken Rose for a solution.

  7. Yes, every transaction needs to be on the blockchain – every PUBLIC transaction. Any gov. agency using public funds – especially the 3-letter agencies – needs to have its transactions immutably logged and mappable. 🙂 Individuals are allowed privacy. Corporations, sometimes, not always… No privacy with public funds!

    • Actually I don’t care what layer the public transactions are on as long it’s open, immutably logged, and mappable. Maybe we need a specialized public layer for that stuff – only seems right. Alternately, make each agency have their own utility token. That would work too. Financial responsibility / let the market decide their worth.
      They need to be regulated ! 🙂

  8. Like the time traveler said on Reddit “all bitcoin owners are going to be prosecuted in the future”.

  9. Disagreeable as it is we MUST say “I told you so” otherwise very, very bad ideas just refuse to die.

  10. When the antigun snowflakes start protesting Bitcoin you’ll know it’s game on with Soros and Big Brother.

  11. I’m an elderly gentleman, closing in on 50 years 0f age. My son introduced me to Cryptocurrency mining in late 2012. After doing a lot of researching Btc I felt strongly that It had a lot of growth and potential ahead of it. So my son and I built my 1st rig and I started mining in January 2013, pulled $5,000 from my IRA and bought Btc at $13.44 and have never looked back since. The sweetest sound that I’ve ever heard was the clink of my 1st mined Bitcoin way back when. That was as satisfying a note as there ever was on any musical scale. Nothing but happy days ahead since. Don’t get me wrong, there have been bumps in this Crypto highway, the demise of the Silk Road, Mt Gox, DAO hack to name a few but as a HOLDer (holding on for the long duration) not a HODLer (hanging on for dear life) and not day trading, has rewarded me with quite a decent profit. It just takes a lot of patience (Sisu) and doing your research with due diligence. I have since invested in Ethereum (Dec 2015), Monero (Jan 2016) and lately Omisego (July 2017) all purchased from some of my profits from Btc to go along with my newly acquired free Bch and recently free Omg. I’m currently operating 3 rigs equipped with 6 gpus each. 2 mining Eth and 1 Monero for now, all of which will be re-evaluated after Metropolis kicks in to see which direction I go from here. So I ‘m back to doing more research in order to help with my next moves but I’ll always be a strong believer in Ethereum which is where I’ve made my money so far. HOLDing on to the rest for now. Btc $5,000-10,000, Eth $2,500- 5,000, Monero $200-400, Omg $100-1,000 no one ever really knows but MY research says yes and so far MY research has not proven me wrong. Bought Btc at $13.44, Eth at .80, Monero at .48, Omg at .43 Bch for free. No where to go but up for me. Just biding my time. It’s taken me over 4 and a half years to get here but I’ve made over $4,000,000 so far with just my original investment plus the cost of my rigs and I’m still sitting on a lot more. Taking a position and HOLDing is where the real profit is and it isn’t going to happen overnight. So if you want aggravation and ulcers go ahead and day trade, try and beat the Market I wish you luck but the real money comes with Research, HOLDing and Patience. Hope this advice helps because in the long run what it all comes down to, its just Eths, You and Me hopefully making the right decisions, feel free to get in touch with me via patrickcoleman096@gmail .com, i will surely guide you on how to invest wisely in cryptocurrencies that will make you more profit at the moment.
