@cryptotraveler @jessevanek @wayann Hard to say. If people get back bitcoins that they wrote off, they might dump them for “safety” of fiat.

@wayann @jessevanek Wouldn’t surprise me - I’ve been saying all along that loss due to incompetence makes more sense than theft.

@Irving_Aquino @anjiecast Well then, I guess we can all go about our lives now that the authority has spoken. :-)

@anjiecast @zfurnas I’m not sure that it’s possible to ever achieve consensus with regard to philosophy…

via web in reply to lopp

@anjiecast @zfurnas Glad you agree. Admittedly, discussion of “value” tends to be more philosophical than technical… it’s also subjective!

via web in reply to anjiecast

zfurnas @anjiecast @lopp’s right. But you could generalize to: “next time anyone starts asserting “intrinsic value” of anything, stop listening.”

anjiecast Next time someone tells you that has no intrinsic value, send them this short article by @lopp coinchomp.com/2014/03/24/int…

@CoinChomp @eric7urner Pre-ordering mining equipment is just making a gamble on top of a gamble. I don’t recommend it to anyone.
