    Is that something the NSA does with all the ca$h that the email from Nigeria said I'd be getting?


    Quis custodiet ipsos custodes. Juvenal, Satires

      That's how NSA is funded. There is, after all, No Such Agency.

      What I wonder is how people who do not trust governments place any more trust in random assemblages of people over whom they have even less ability to oversee. Why is Mt Gox or Flexcoin any more trustworthy than the Federal Reserve or Bank of England?

    Recent Snowden disclosure shows the NSA have been monitoring the premining of pacocoin since late 1999.

      ... and *still* we await his return. :)

    Bitcoin I paid some stuff at fiverr and my membership to bitcoin foundation. I do mine some with a BFL miner. This is the future guys. I see most of you haven't heard about it.

    I once paid something with pound, shillings and pence - that was cryptic!
    #!/usr/bin/perl my £currency = €.1; # long live $sigils

    I refuse to answer that question on the grounds it may tend to incriminate me.

    I can only imagine what my commodities buyer would say if I asked to be paid in bitcoin.

    Subsequently, if I paid all my farm bills in the same currency and told each of my vendors (seed,

    fertilizer, diesel, electricity, crop insurance...etc.) that they better figure it out, or they won't get paid.

    It would be interesting too, to insist on paying taxes via such currency. I bet I could get

    myself in a shit-storm in a heartbeat... :-)
