If you didn't buy bitcoin, and didn't mine it, ... where did you get it? Examples...
If you earn in bitcoin, you will prefer to spend in bitcoin (versus going through the friction of "cashing out" into fiat). This occurring will "close the loop", lessening significantly the conversions to and from fiat. What would change that you would be earning inn bitcoin in the future? Well, ... you might:
Things are just getting started ...., just wait until gig marketplaces like Uber, DoorDash, and AirBNB offer to pay in bitcoin to attract more service providers. Or when payment in bitcoin is an option for those who make bulk payments -- such as Udemy which pays instructors their commissions and TryMYUI wich pays their testers. What other ways have you ended up with bitcoin, other than buying from an exchange?
Hello! I'm zensunset. I discovered this sub a bit ago and have just been sitting and reading for a bit, but tonight I'm 2 beers in and bored. My girlfriend is sleeping so I'm gonna post for some random people on the internet. I moved to the bay area a little over a year ago to attend college. I'm a 26 year-old transfer student, so I don't quite fit in with the youngins at my campus. My personal feeling about my school is that people are too competitive and cold to befriend, although I will admit that this is likely more of an internal narrative than a reality. I have 2 friends from my school whom I still keep in touch with. I feel that I generally befriend, or click with 3 types of people: genuine people, socially unaware people, and egotists. The fact that I don't have more friends in the area is probably due to minor agoraphobia (I just don't wanna go outside most of the time). I also am known to disengage and not pick up my phone or respond in a timely fashion for a day or two. I feel like the easiest way for you to get a feel for who I am is to see which subreddits I am subscribed to. Do note that although I am subscribed to /redpillwomen, I am not a redpill or associated with that line of thinking myself. I subscribe there for pure entertainment and curiosity. In addition to this, I seldom prune or unsub from subs with low quality content, perhaps due to laziness or perhaps for wanting more of the sub. Anyway, knowing these things, take a look at my subs and see if you can relate. I'm big into privacy and cryptography, so it's kinda rubbing me the wrong way that I'm even posting this right now, but fuck it. I might delete this post later. Point is, if you're on signal or telegram, definitely hit me up lol. ok ok, so here goes! I definitely feel that in you reading this list here, you'll get a much more accurate picture than from my drunken writing.

Timestamp: http://imgur.com/gDavbSJ Barely used, works perfectly, excellent condition. No original packaging or accessories, but will be packed very well. Looking for £320 £270 ono. Available in my OpenBazaar store, here: ob://@MichaelZ/store Any questions, PM me here or through OB. P&P free (UK only) or collect (London).
So I'm going to shamelessly self-promote myself here, but I'm trying to get the ball rolling with my store. I think Openbazaar is some seriously cool technology, and I want to get others excited about it as well! The first two people to make an order on either listing will get their stickers for free! All I ask in return is that you write a review once you receive the product. I will require you to pay for the stickers, but I will refund you once a review is left. Pinky promise :) We can use a moderator if you wish. I'd like to introduce a novel way of accepting cryptocurrency payments. Rather than utilizing a QR code to enter a Bitcoin address, what if you could simply make contact with a small sticker? Each sticker features the Bitcoin logo on the front, and acts as an NFC enabled device under the hood. They measure 30mm in diameter, and have a storage capacity of 140 bytes. Use these stickers to accept payment from friends, family, or customers, with a feeling reminiscent of Apple/Android pay. Most Android users will have the ability to read and write to these stickers. All you need is an NFC chip inside of your device, as well as an accompanying app(I personally use NFC tools on my Android) . To my understanding, iOS users are gaining increased functionality with NFC technology in a future system update, but currently cannot read or write data. If you are interested in Ethereum NFC stickers, I have those in stock as well. They are the same price as their Bitcoin counterparts. If you are interested and would like to order, a set of five stickers is $10. I can add tracking to your package for an extra $3 inside of the United States (normal parcels are shipped in a regular untracked envelope). If you are outside of the United States, I will add $3 to your order to cover international shipping. International buyers can obtain tracking as well, contact me for the rate for your country. My store link is ob://QmRhBuhaNjdZ6GoS3Lrmow1kE9kVnwUe6e5iC1LswT4p1W/store

The intelligent investors guide to Particl (PART): Part 3 - How will Particl succeed in gaining price appreciation, adoption and network effect where centralised anonymous marketplaces fail?
How will Particl succeed in gaining price appreciation, adoption and network effect where centralised anonymous marketplaces fail? ...
It's real simple. Particl is not a centralised marketplace so you would need to take the majority of the nodes down to compromise the network.
Contrast this with tradtional centralised marketplaces where taking down a handful of servers can shut down the entire service leading to loss of any funds held there.
The Particl nodes can be run on the tor network for added security thus the network is inherently more resistant to tradtional hacks, takedowns and DDOS attacks.
Integration of the currency into the platform means that the value of the PART token will increase rapidly as use of the marketplace increases.
This is because although Particl can accept multiple cryptocurrencies, these will all be converted in the Particl client into PART token via integration of shapeshift exchange and other decentralized exchanges into the Particl client before being used to transact on the Particl network.
Thus there is a constant buy pressure on the PART token to raise its daily trading volume, attract speculators who will then promote the platform further (after learning about it) and thus speading the network effect and awareness about the marketplace.
Integration of the currency into the platform also makes it easier to use as it reduces the number of additional trusted third party services required to zero, thus the service is more accessible, secure, safer and convenient.
XMR and DNM's are currently the way with regards to anonymous, private commerce but the Particl network provides all their services integrated and avoids all their inherent problems.
A design which encourages convenience (integration of the currency exchange/converter, marketplace listings, escrow service, currency, communications, security features and any additional services required under one client operating on a separate chain).
Compare with centralized marketplace's which have a number of distinct disadvantages:
Have far higher fees
Are governed by centralized authorities which can delist or prevent you from listing products for any reason whatsoever without any recourse; this also prevents buyers from being able to purchase things they want
Contain your sensitive data (credit card information, purchase/sell history, personal information) on centralized servers which means your information can be sold to third-parties, governments or leaked during hacks (Equifax anyone?)
Have zero network effects -- unless you own stock in Amazon.com you couldn't give two shits about how it operates
In contrast decentralized privacy centric MP's do not require personal information, can benefit from leveraging the network effects of speculation (Bitcoin circa 2013 is a perfect example), can have low or zero transaction fee's and protect sellers from premature, unfair or even illegal delisting i.e. protect buyers and sellers from censorship where none is required or where censorship is questionable.
Furthermore the tax implications of cryptocurrency have yet to be determined. PART wouldn't qualify as just a currency as it has features that make it more in keeping with a bond and a share simultaneously (as the token confers governance rights, generates passive income if staked and is used to secure the network + act as bond in it's escrow service). Tax laws specific to an asset class like PART have yet to be clearly defined. I think a large amount of legal white market commerce could run through Particl simply because it potentially represents a more legally tax efficient solution.
Following on from this I think a large amount of wealth that has moved into cryptocurrency wants to stay there. Thus the general market for legal goods acquired tax efficiently through multiple cryptocurrencies is potentially untapped and could explode as crypto marketcap continues to grow. I think this represents a case for all decentralised marketplaces.
This argument in general is the case for decentralization of marketplace technologies and is the main use case for District0x, Openbazaar, Syscoin etc. ...

I am new so anything anyone knows is great. It is at 507 and some articles are saying that analysts rate Amazon a buy (link, then some are saying there is still a downward trend - I don't have much of an idea of whats happening or why there is a downward trend so info would be great. Thanks.
Q: "Why do libertarians seems to lack a real political movement?"
A general lack of a real libertarian movement.
Probably because were individualists, not collectivists.
I think it's a bit more that such people define 'movement' as a political organization of mass action. In short, ancaps don't bother with silly things like organizing marches, publicity or awareness campaigns, we don't try to gain political power or influence in this way. Because we've moved on to strategies that are likely to be far more effective in the long run but which seek to bypass the political process. These projects have long spool-times, but have the potential to be enormously effective. What's more, they tend to be invisible to people who have only a political conception of "movement." For instance, I look at the entire bitcoin-sphere as a libertarian movement! The world at large fails to see this. But meanwhile libertarians are secretly rejoicing and wringing our hands with joy at what can come of this project, and how it is on the cusp of mass acceptance. Bitcoin can delegitimize state currencies, which has long been a policy goal of ours, but something we were wholly unable to effect merely by agitating for it and having intellectuals attack fiat. We have found new ways to attack our political targets, not by engaging in political battle over them, but by replacing them with our own variants, in line with our theories, and letting them out-compete state sponsored versions. We think this will work precisely because state-sponsored versions are designed to be exploitative, and libertarian replacement services are designed not to be. From there it is only a matter of letting the average individual make a rational choice as to whether they'd like to use the more expensive state version, or the cheaper libertarian version. It's just a matter of time until the state versions are repudiated. Till now the state has fought such projects by attacking their support systems, e.g.: the Liberty Dollar was shut down by raiding the factory and arresting the principals. That is, the state defends itself by attacking the center of its opposition. This is a strategy taken from war-planning, it's one the state understand, it's one that can be easily effected using force, and force is what the state has more than anyone else. It is the heart of state power. So we've begun fighting our political fight on a realm where force is meaningless, that being in the realm of information, the online strategy of crypto-anarchy was born. Here the playing field is level between the state and libertarians. Here we can build replacement services that have no center to attack. And over the last recent two decades we've seen decentralized services survive utter state attack continually. P2P torrents have survived the brunt of force against them. Tor is well established. Bitcoin is up and coming. Wikileaks is still online. Silk Road failed by being too centralized, but proved there was demand. And OpenBazaar threatens to complete the loop. What's more, the march of greater knowledge and intelligence and information is relentless, never-ending. Adding one more soldier or one more plane costs the state a considerable amount of money compared to adding one more P2P node, one more bitcoin miner, or another bittorrent seed. All that remains is to add forms of enclavism, seasteading, spacesteading, ZEDEs, Free-State-Project style projects that begin replacing the state in terms of physical property and places to live. The fact that our opponents both fail to appreciate our shift in tactics and fail to identify our activities as a "political movement" makes me very hopeful for the future. (Original post here)
Bitcoin Cash can turn in to the biggest non violent protest against the establishment ever : "We simply stop using their money." Which is a great way of getting edgy teenagers to join us. There is an almost infinite supply of edgy teenagers in the world. (153 points, 42 comments)
The next wave of attack will be all the big internet giants supporting Bitcoin Core and LN. Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, I bet you that the more successful Bitcoin Cash becomes the more you will see big cooperation’s be forced to go with compromised Bitcoin. (25 points, 28 comments)
Just because the nChain patents aren't on the base protocol level doesn't mean it's a good idea, BCH could end up with patents which are so part of its normal use it will effectively be part of it. (13 points, 33 comments)
BCH showerthought: The first one or two killer apps for Bitcoin Cash that drive mass adoption will be the thing that decides the standards/denominations based on what people are using and catches on. Not a small forum poll or incessantly loud Twitter spam. (167 points, 24 comments)
Right now segwit2x (BT2) is trading for $1143 and segwit1x (BT1) is $3070 on Bitfinex futures markets. Even with not the greatest terms, you would expect 2x to be much higher. I believe this bodes well for BCC. (61 points, 112 comments)
The other day people were suggesting we do an EDA change before the November 2x fork. Here is why I think that is a terrible idea, and why we should only consider EDA change AFTER the 2x fork. (58 points, 40 comments)
While /bitcoin was circle-jerking to the idea that no exchange would list the SW2x chain as BTC, Bitcoin Thailand's comment to the contrary was removed from the very same thread! (228 points, 70 comments)
By proving that it can be done (getting rid of Core) this will set a HUUGE precedent and milestone that dev teams and even outright censorship cannot overtake Bitcoin. That will be an extremely bullish occasionfor all crypto. (149 points, 84 comments)
The goal of all the forks appears to be to dilute investment in the true forks: Bitcoin Cash and Segwit2x. A sort of Scorched Earth approach by Blockstream. They are going to try to tear down Bitcoin as they get removed. (35 points, 11 comments)
In light of all these upcoming forks, we need a site where you can put in a BTC address and it checks ALL the forks and says which chains still have a balance for that address. This way you can split your coins and send coins carefully. (6 points, 6 comments)
Can we take a moment to appreciate Jeff Garzik for how much bullshit he has to deal with while working to give BTC a long-needed upgrade that Core has been blocking for so long? (278 points, 193 comments)
Everyone should calm down. The upgrade to 2x has 95%+ miner support and will be as smooth as a hot knife through butter. Anyone that says otherwise is fear monguring or listening to bitcoin propaganda. (364 points, 292 comments)
Notice: Redditor for 3-4 months accounts or accounts that do not have a history of Bitcoin posts are probably the same person or just a few people paid to manipulate discussion here. It's likely a paid astroturfing campaign. (38 points, 30 comments)

BCC Miners, two EDAs have locked in. This will reduce mining difficulty to 64.00%. If you are aiming to achieve profit parity, you should start mining after the next EDA (in 2.5 hours), because then the difficulty will be at 51%, which gives profit parity on both chains and steady block rate.

Antpool, Viabtc, Bitcoin.com, BTC.com, we need to hear your voice. In the case of a scheduled hardfork for updating the EDA, will your pool follow? (6 points, 18 comments)

Even if bitcoins only use to society was avoiding negative interest rates, bail-ins + bail-outs, that is incredibly useful to society.

There was no decentralized market for goods and services (OpenBazaar)
... and there still aren't... is my butter friend trying to refer to openbazaar? cuz last time I checked, this still isn't a thing (unless a 'thing' is stealing buttcoiner's money by promising false hope, a common butt theme)
Three of the largest crypto stock exchanges had just shut down nearly simultaneously, sending crypto-equities into disarray (BTC-GLOBAL, Litecoin Global, Bitfunder). Havelock Investments "relocated" to Panama

From a sellers point of view, I only had easy, swift transactions so nothing but thumbs up there! ... On September 25, the creators of the decentralized marketplace, Openbazaar, announced that unless the project can gather community funding, the supporting services like seed nodes and the API wallet will shut down. The open-source decentralized marketplace project Openbazaar started from an idea first conceived at the Bitcoin Hackathon in Toronto in April 2014. OpenBazaar uses Bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency. Existing online payment systems such as credit cards are tied to identity, cost money to accept, and risk identity theft. Bitcoin is more private, has no risk of identity theft, and costs little to use. Third party payment processors aren’t able to hold funds or reverse transactions; how to use Bitcoin is up to you. Secure Escrow and ... While it may not be merely as popular as the ‘traditional’ blockchain applications like the father of them all Bitcoin or the programmable smart-contract-based Ethereum, openbazaar is a unique, open-source, peer-to-peer software that uses cryptocurrencies to shift the power balance in favor of the end-user. This is why we’ve decided to implement this eCommerce disruptor to our bitcoin ...
