@polemitis @cdixon @pmarca @TheStalwart @hblodget Can’t withdraw your money? You just got Goxed. Been happening for years; when will it end?

@cdixon @pmarca @TheStalwart @hblodget @polemitis Traders who wanted to withdraw money were forced to buy bitcoins, thus driving up price.

@cdixon @pmarca @TheStalwart @hblodget @polemitis Gox was actually higher than market avg for months after fiat withdrawals ceased.

@AddisonTodd @cryptotraveler @oleganza Though I am open with the actions that I have undertaken with my money. This is not investment advice

@AddisonTodd @cryptotraveler @oleganza Sure; I ~NEVER~ tell anyone to convert their hard earned money into cryptocurrency. It’s quite risky.

@AddisonTodd @cryptotraveler @oleganza It is a high risk, high reward proposition. What I consider to be acceptable risk is not “normal.”

Since “value” is a fundamental concept that drives society, shouldn’t it be defined in a fair fashion? Doesn’t it require consensus?

But when you research monetary systems, you eventually arrive at the questions: What is value? How to we represent it? Who defines it?

.@coinbase added granular permissions to API keys a week ago; I wonder if @mint is going to secure their integration? blog.coinbase.com/post/759367376…

Gox incompetence continues; they openly admit needing @blockchain’s help to fix their bug. Withdrawals coming soon™. mtgox.com/img/pdf/201402…

The anti-crypto crowd has yet to realize that fighting is futile. Non-participants cannot hurt crypto; at worst they can slow its growth.

Inevitable that crypto will see traditional banking services. Ex: you shouldn’t self-manage your bitcoins if you’re as high as a Snoop Lion.

@jefft I thought those were obvious :-) I’ve found that very few people think to add in their crypto.

If you suddenly pass away, will your loved ones be able to access your cryptocurrencies? Make sure you have a retrieval system set up!

Spent yesterday implementing a custom N-of-M cold storage system for Lopp Holdings’ bitcoins. I prefer my paper wallets to be digital.
