Re: Shift Card: Just ordered one!!

I'm excited to hear about your experience with the Shift Card. I would get one, but I don't live in an approved state right now. :cry: My biggest concern is that it won't be very competitive with regular debit cards. Currently there are no fees for transactions, but it appears there will be at some ...

Re: I'm Aaron Voisine, founder of breadwallet, first iPhone wallet that connects directly to the bitcoin network, AMA! D

Aaron, First, I want to thank you for developing a great wallet. It is my primary hot wallet, and I recommend it to anyone I can. I also appreciate your desire to make Bitcoin more accessible to the "average" user, which means simplicity and ease-of-use. Now a few questions: 1) What are the main fea...

Re: What gives bitcoin value?

The graphic is nice, but I think it doesn't work because of the first stage: Bitcoins built-in limit of 21 million coins makes it SCARCE, which gives it demand as a collectible. Technically, everything is scarce (except perhaps U.S. Dollars), so this in itself doesn't create demand. My daughter make...

Re: Easy and simply way to explain what is it bitcoin to common people

There is a saying in marketing that "you don't sell the toothpaste, you sell the whiter teeth." When someone asks you what Bitcoin is, you need to begin by telling him how it might help him, instead of explaining exactly what it is. If he sees a personal benefit, then he will be interested in findin...

Re: Trying some new Wallets - Bread Wallet: What say you?

Breadwallet is my primary hot wallet - I've been using it for about a year or so now. I love its simplicity and design, and trust its security (at least for a hot wallet). I've used it often and overall love it. Three (somewhat minor) criticisms: 1) The first isn't really a criticism of Breadwallet,...

Re: I'm Roger Ver, the first Bitcoin angel investor, ask me anything!

1. What do you think needs to be done to move Bitcoin from its current early adopter phase to more mainstream acceptance?

2. Is there any specific new Bitcoin-related project that you are particularly excited about?

3. Why Japan? :)

Re: "Bitcoin Basics: 101 Questions and Answers" - new book to help spread knowledge of Bitcoin

That's a great idea! I'm happy to supply 5-10 free copies (or even more if there is interest) to the forum as giveaways or as review copies. Just let me know if you want me to send them all to you, or to individuals who win/request. My only constraint is that I don't think I could afford to ship the...

"Bitcoin Basics: 101 Questions and Answers" - new book to help spread knowledge of Bitcoin

I've been using Bitcoin for a few years now, and for some time I've wanted to help spread its use to a broader audience. I've found that most of my friends and family don't really understand Bitcoin: not only what it is and how it works, but even why anyone would be interested in it ("what's wrong w...
