Re: Former US Treasury Secretary: 'Bitcoin Needs More Than Math to Succeed' - http://www.coindesk.com/former-...
"What a load of nonsense, regulation and centralized control is exactly what bitcoin DOESN'T need and I for one hope it doesn't happen, ever. Rotten central bankers and their minions (read: US Treasury Secretaries and in other countries, "finance ministers") have poisoned all the world's money supplies and twisted them to their own nefarious purposes in the service of an insidious, global "corporatocracy". Time for some constructive anarchy to help take back what's ours from the unjustly rich thieves and crooks that these "money barons" serve. Long live bitcoin! :-)" - Robert Morrison

"Bill Gates doesn't need reddit to discredit him, he's done a perfectly good job of that himself over the past 30 years or so. If he had to pay for all the damage he's done to the planet he would have a negative net worth. If most people do respect him (which I doubt), it is only because they don't really know much about him, they should use this as a starting point, maybe it will open a few people's eyes to the truth http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Philant..." - Robert Morrison

"If Bill Gates HAD created bitcoin, he would just be abusing it for his own totally selfish and greedy purposes, but as far as I know he's never really created anything except misery for the rest of us, yes even his so-called "philanthropy" is a sham and disgrace (and has been for years, already) http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Philant..." - Robert Morrison

praguebob on A review of "BitCon: The Naked Truth About Bitcoin by Jeffrey Robinson" - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"The guy is well-known for sensational and inflammatory pseudo-journalism, with a long track record of rubbish. He's a self-serving and self-professed hack on the "after dinner circuit", not to be taken seriously. That's the naked truth about Jeffrey Robinson." - Robert Morrison

praguebob on BWallet review by TREZOR developer - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Yet another example of how the Chinese simply steal everything that isn't nailed down. It will jump up and bite them eventually. It's obvious that they're essentially "monkey see, monkey do" idiots, just look at how they boosted Apple's profit by buying iPhones. But somehow clever idiots. Dangerous, really. Only a fool would buy (or use) BWallet..." - Robert Morrison

Re: Can Bitcoin be the Solution To Greece’s Deep Rooted Problems? - http://newsbtc.com/2015...
"Since Greece was in effect screwed by the ECB and other EU government finance ministers, thereby catapulting Syriza to an otherwise unlikely victory, I would not be surprised when Syriza turns out to be "bitcoin friendly", because if they aren't, then they certainly SHOULD be... :-)" - Robert Morrison

"Price is now stable, in fact rising slightly. Difficulty will now decrease as a result of less hashing power in the network, this is part of the built-in auto-correction. So I stand firm in my assessment of Wired's article of more than a week ago." - Robert Morrison

"The main point of the article is to take the longer view and perspective on things. So in that vein come back next year and tell me about the collapse of bitcoin, if true I will acknowledge your prescience in the matter. In the meantime, I am watching the price of bitcoin climbing again." - Robert Morrison

"Price swing does not equal collapse. The price of oil is currently being manipulated in a deliberate attempt by a few maverick OPEC members, most notably Saudi Arabia, to drive American shale oil producers out of business. The price of bitcoin is simply fluctuating, sometimes quite wildly. Big difference between bitcoin and oil proces, not a good comparison I think." - Robert Morrison

praguebob on Dear media. We are waiting for your sensational headlines: Bitcoin price increased +53% in 2 days - http://www.reddit.com/r...

Re: Forget Everything You Didn't Understand About Bitcoin - http://www.businessweek.com/article...
"Transactions didn’t rise above 55,000 a day during 2014? A quick look at the actual chart says otherwise http://bit.ly/1zjYHzE and in fact it seems the volume rarely dropped BELOW 55,000 transactions a day in 2014. Do you ever even bother to check your facts before writing an article? This is not the first time I have pointed out such sloppiness on the part of Bloomberg when writing about bitcoin. One could almost begin to think this is deliberate." - Robert Morrison

"Look at the price over the lifetime of bitcoin since the genesis block, go to bitstamp.net and click the "all" tab in the date range. There's your wall. You can clearly see that although the price fluctuates, it is pretty far from zero, in fact as I write this the price is around $220 and rising, up 20% for the day so far. You can wish for it to go to zero all you want, for whatever reason you want, but the fact remains that it isn't happening." - Robert Morrison

"I said nothing about the success of the Internet, so don't put words in my mouth, that simply marks you as a troll. And yes, rational. Go look at the price of bitcoin today. Fully recovered to the level before the drop that started this conversation. And as for any investment advice from you, thanks bu no thanks." - Robert Morrison

"As I said, no, not a collapse, and if you take a quick look right now at the order book on bitstamp.net you will see buying pressure and the price is back at the level it was before the drop that started this conversation." - Robert Morrison

Re: The Price of Bitcoin Doesn’t Matter Right Now - http://www.wired.com?p=1703539...
"Reality is... well, look at the bitstamp.net order book right now, tremendous buy pressure, high volume, and the price is again over 235 USD, in other words at the level it was before the price drop that started this conversation." - Robert Morrison

Re: The Price of Bitcoin Doesn’t Matter Right Now - http://www.wired.com?p=1703539...
"Well, that's exactly the point, bitcoin is not collapsing. I started following the price of bitcoin in early 2012 when it was hovering around $5, and a year later in early 2013 it was an eye-popping $15! So a price of more than 10x that amount now after another 2 years into its lifetime is not what I would call any sort of "collapse", particularly when today's low price was reached at a time of record selling volumes on the exchanges. There is some profit taking going on right now, and yes, some panic selling coat-tailing on automatic sell orders triggered at the $200 price level. This too will pass, and the price will begin to rise again." - Robert Morrison
