Having met or read about a few people in the bitcoin community, I have come to think it's a very relevant question and you can better weight their opinions having an idea of how many Bitcoins they hold (or do not hold.)"Never ask anyone for their opinion [...] Just ask them what they have -or don't have- in their portfolio"

One of the biggest concerns with altcoins (and Bitcoin, to a lesser extent) is keeping devs able to work on maintenance and improvement but still earn a living - no simple task. How do you find time to work on Monero vs whatever you do to pay the rent/mortgage?

(much like Tor and I2P are used as primary network stack for example)

I was re-reading Antifragile by iconoclast thinker Nassim Taleb recently.

I wanted to ask every participants to tell us a range of their bitcoins holdings rather than asking them their opinion on Bitcoin and its future. The first person asked told me the percentage of his net worth and liquid assets held in Bitcoins instead. He thought it was more relevant and I also think it feels less like an invasion of financial privacy so..
I realize you are working on a privacy focused Altcoin so this question might not be as relevant in your case but anyway...
So my question is:
- Which percentage of your net worth and/or liquid assets do you hold in Bitcoins ?

How did you get the nickname fluffypony?
Are you actually a poofy equine?
Is it an IRL nickname also, or only on the internets pseudonym? Does your mom or your wife call you fluffy?
jwinterm wrote:OK, now for the less important questions:
I think I heard someone mention that there wouldn't be any serious work on I2P integration until they (I2P) had a stable release, but looking at their wiki it says "I2P has had a stable release every six to eight weeks." So, does that mean there won't be any integration work until they release I2P v1.0 that is long term stable? Do you have any idea how far out on the horizon that might be?

When are you going to join the Bitcoin Uncensored podcast? Every week, junseth talks smack about Monero. It's time to set the record straight. Thanks!

What technical possibilities are there at the moment for Monero to overcome a "hostile" Internet infrastructure, e.g. operation over dark nets?

What OS do you use that you believe is "safe" and "secure" enough to run Monero on to avoid any type of possible key loggers/malware preinstalled or susceptible to be installed over time?
