>That's a poor analogy. Tulips aren't gold or in this case fools gold.
Its was a speculative bubble, which is precisely why so many people in this thread are going to end up sad pandas.

At least the tulip bulbs were actually tulip bulbs. After the bubble burst people still had bulbs, they just weren't worth what they once were worth. BTC has nothing securing its worth except the depths of human stupidity. Eventually James Cameron will take an interest and everything will end up where it started.

Some people just don't grasp history. They think this time it'll be different. This time there's no way it'll turn out that way because <reasons>. And then, at long last, they realize that there's no escape. That's when they cry or die.

Bitcoins are not tulips.
Bitcoin has more utility than tulips.
If you agree that bitcoins are used as currency (you already did) there is no argument.

Tulipmania does make for some cute click-baity headlines, though. Well, they did back in 2017 before you dug them back up to blindly parrot them. That seems to be your M.O.

Start thinking for yourself and quit being salty.

That you won't admit that there's a yawning chasm at your feet is much more your problem than mine, however I will still derive amusement at watching you fall due to your own ignorance and arrogance.

Maybe you should take a good look at your own life sometime if you're going to start sniffling at the thought of someone laughing at your misfortune.

He might be referring to an onion that kept people's wallets for them some years ago. Not sure if he's got the name quite right or if it's still around; I assume that's part of the lost 1/5th of bitcoin, my old wallet included. Probably got hacked, lost money, lost customers, went offline and never reported back to anyone who wasn't paying attention.

I'm willing to concede that's a fair point if he's confusing a true Bitcoin wallet with that of a custodial account controlled by an admin of an onion site. I'm still doubtful over it's alleged, casual use to purchase CP over Tor prior to May 22, 2010. The pizza transaction predates the launch of the Silk Road which helped usher Bitcoin into the mainstream. That transaction was notable because it was proof of concept that Bitcoin could function as a currency in practical use.

Good comment.

Not to worry. Whether or not you believe bitcoin itself is worth the zeros and ones it's made of, my wallet probably only held like three satoshis or so. I set it up as an attempt to mine, solo, with my home pc.

It was already late in the game. After observing the rate at which my 8-threaded 5Ghz CPU was mining, I calculated the time I'd have to leave my computer on to generate a single bitcoin at several months. The amount of money I'd spend on electricity in that period would be exponentially greater.

Doesn't have a bitcoin, he's so sure of his bet that he expects to get one. He's on your side, accusing bitcoin of being tainted by its use for the purchase of illicit goods and services.

You know what, plenty of US dollars have been used to purchase illicit goods and services--even actual children to rape--should we abolish the dollar?

I don't even want to know what kind of filth Euros have been used for.

A very rough estimate, intended to communicate there was very little money in my wallet; as a matter of fact i don't remember how much beyond that the amount was insignificant.

At first I did not understand the reason for your confusion, but now I realize my story was incomplete--you can't get satoshis going solo, yes? After realizing solo mining would never return a profit, I had made a brief attempt at pool mining as well, which would be where I got the satoshis, before realizing this as well would never return an actual profit.

You goddamn millennials acting so smug with your preconceived notions about the world in the finest tradition of millennials with preconceived notions are always saying things. You say them so arrogantly and when confronted with things that weren't mentioned or preconceived you mentioned them repeatedly! Bitcoin!

I remember when I was a child, my mother put notes on my fruit cup. "Don't do drugs," it read in base64, in the finest tradition of mother's everywhere. And then there was darkness so thick you could cut it with a knife.

Next time you ever preconcieve a conception try having a brain. Think about your life before you decide to go bitcoining on meth, pcp, monster energy drink, weeds, devil's dandruff, etc. I know the market, dum dum! I read Dante, you strawberry! Bitcoin will fail and I will dance on your graves!

Not really comparable to bitcoin in this sense. My reasoning for that is
1. Cash is regulated to a degree
2. Cash can be marked and traced by authorities
3. Cash is physical and to exchange it for illegal items, two parties must be physically present

I didn't build my computer for the purpose of mining; it only has one GPU that runs at 900Mhz. I gave it a shot to see if my hardware could turn electricity into money--it didn't work.

I've also looked into buying the hardware to make a mining rig, which is yet another way to lose money. It isn't really possible to turn a profit mining unless you can afford a massive cluster installation, because that is what people are using these days.

My question is if any blockchain with smart contracts in effect will ever work. Smart contracts are nothing but scams.

Why doesn't someone just implement sharding, states (actual account balances), bring the state over to the new genesis block (a state block, like that described in omniledger) and a method I came up with which, when manipulating shards, can increase the speed up to 64x what it is.

You 1) then have a reasonably finite blockchain, rather than it getting larger and larger each day, well into the terabytes and beyond, by simply bringing the state over to a new genesis block, with a text file produced of the previous blocks.
2) the speed will be drastically improved. By simply splitting shards up into what I call sectors where each sector's shards have a number of nodes which are less than the those contained in the previous sector. A node advances to the next sector based on the amount of time it has retained a legitimate blockchain. If it tries to be malicious even once, it will get bumped back down to the first sector and begin its journey again. You get to reduce the shard size to 25 if you want, and compare that to today's 600, that is an insane amount of time you will be saving.
