Re: Bitcoin.com now has a Warrant Canary page!

@roger: If you haven't done so, you should apply to get listed on here canarywatch I didn't know about CanaryWatch.org (or this thread) when I wrote this so a lot of it has been said or done but I think I have a few innovative ideas left in here so I'll post it anyway :) So, here is my idea for Bit...

Re: Bitcoin.com now has a Warrant Canary page!

Proactive (Flying?) vs. Reactive (Perched?) Warrant Canaries Better terms may (probably do) already exist, but I think we need to define and differentiate between the two types of warrant canaries I've come across so that we can move away from the less useful "Reactive Canary" to the much more effec...

Re: Anonymity by default?

People seem to ignore that using any networks anonymously have little to do with the network itself. For example, Monero is stated to be completely anonymous, but these efforts worth exactly 0 if the user do not give a shit about opsec. True, I suppose that the type of anonymity I'm referring to is...

The "Shock Doctrine" and the War on Crypto

Looks like we may enjoy a temporary reprieve from the US Gov's War on Crypto. After receiving massive push-back, they are (according to leaked emails) retreating until they can manufacture capitalize on a crypto related event in the future. Intelligence community top lawyer, Robert S. Litt: Although...

Re: Anonymity by default?

Yes of course, I think all wallets should be doing this. I Agree 100% DarkWallet is supposed to be doing this but the wallet is basically abandoned right now, so it's unstable to use (use at your own risk, but still a great project). I was really excited about that project and find Amir to be passi...

Re: No such thing

Even in your simple example, there is a third party. What is a dollar? Who said it is worth anything? In a free market, the same party who chooses to accept dollars for their goods or services is the one "saying they are worth something" to them. Otherwise they would likely not be willing to trade ...

Can you give an example of the artificial rules you are talking about? I want to understand what you mean. Thanks Any arbitrary rule that market participants agree to follow. I was hoping for a specific example but I will still try to address your point. In what I envision to be a true "free market...

Encrypted PM system

The title pretty much says it. End to end encryption for PM's would be pretty cool but idk if it would be possible.

Re: Add tipping - changetip?

Cool idea. Tipping on the forum would be great to see. I'm not quite sure how I feel about changetip in particular though. I found it peculiar that they shied away from using "bitcointip" instead of "changetip" a while ago if they really wanted to increase the visibility of Bitcoin and their recent ...

Re: Why are you a member of this forum?

It's posts like this that make me feel like everything has been worth it. It nearly brings tears to my eyes to hear that other people have read Rothbard, and that it was in part, due to my recommendation. Once those ideas have been heard, one can never see the world the same way again. Thank you so...

The "War On Drugs"

One month ago my little brother, one of about three people on this planet I truly loved and who truly loved me, a person I would without question die to protect without a second thought, was "partying" with his so called friends. He had a severe and adverse reaction to the illegal street drugs they ...

Re: No such thing

It is an oxymoron. You can't have freedom and simultaneously be bound by the artificial rules of a market. It is self contradicting.
Can you give an example of the artificial rules you are talking about? I want to understand what you mean.

I joined the forum to help support Roger's new endeavor. I admire all the things he has done and continues to do for liberty, Bitcoin and all of the people that both will someday set free. It is unlikely that I would be as involved in Bitcoin or ever have read Rothbard if not for Roger's public hone...
