It is exactly like if the man bought a sack of gold coins, put them in a box and buried it in the Nevada desert, but lost the map to where they are buried. He stills owns the coins, they are still where he left them, but little chance he every recovers them.

What are the chances that the first major cryptocurrency actually ends up being the best?


Up until a year or so ago, many prolly would have said there is a good chance that it doesn't. And btc is not the best for anything other than being a storage of wealth in all honesty. But now with the amount of money coming in from Wall Street and other huge firms that are dropping hundreds of millions...its 100% that btc will be the most valuable coin.

JPMorgan from creating their own, better blockcha


Nothing, but they aren't doing it, instead they are buying hundreds of million in btc themselves and have released internal memos that have been leaked that say they expect 140k per coin at a very minimum and prolly closer to 300k with a max of 500k by the end of the decade.

Other coins have better block chains and are much faster, but they are not going to be what btc is. Many of the other coins have their own uses and its not a storage of wealth.

This is why I make the same password for everything and when they say change it, just add an exclamation point

I use a pattern of numeric, alphabetical, numeric, alphabetical, and numeric characters followed by a special character for every password. I make note of them (if they're important - I don't give a shite about some shite and just reuse it) on a document and know which alphanumeric sequence to start with based on the number I assign them.

Yeah, man, I'm basically a cryptographer with an easily broken code.

This makes no sense. You can clone an iron key in its encrypted state and just make a bunch of copies to try twice an infinite amount of times.

You know this fricking neckbeard felt super-cool when he bought that IronKey thing, too. Probably spot-cleaned the Dorito stains on his black trenchcoat just for the occasion.

My wife said she saw a story a while back involving the Fed and major banks discussing creating a new standardized digital currency.

All yall saying you woukd have it stored all over.....yall realize he prolly bought the btc when they were like .10 right? It wasn't worth much when he bought to have all those safe guards and he prolly never imagined it would be worth what it is.

Who doesn’t buy encrypted hard drives - that permanently lock after 10 tries - to store things that they don’t think are very valuable?

This is why Bitcoin is stupid. Way too hard to use and hold.


And it takes 8 to 12 minutes per transaction now. So it's almost unusable as a real currency.

This is the biggest "tech bubble" of all time.

Then they say "change it" again six months later, and don't use your last 6 passwords.

How does this help if it locks forever with no recovery? If someone is trying to steal it and fails 10 times he loses it. If its successfully stolen he loses it. If he can't remember it and fails 10 times he loses it. There's no back door.

When it all fails, use BOSCO.
