    Anybody who knows Stefan Thomas, the dude with 2 attempts left on his Bitcoin account, please put me in contact with him. The greatest Electric Chair content EVER if we stream him trying to access his account live.It’s probably horrendous heartbreak, but 1% chance of ELATION

  • From CryptoNewsYes:

    🍊💊 “#Bitcoin is in the opposite of a bubble. The biggest bubble in the world, by far, is the bond bubble. It took 300 years for the bonds in the UK to get this extended & into a bubble, and it took over 240 years for the U.S. debt market to get into this bubble.”-@MaxKeiser

  • From alexandravbotez:

    @MRKR @JamesSurowiecki Your point that “bitcoin began as a cryptocurrency. It has ended as a crypto asset” doesn’t take into account that it takes time for successful technology to reach it’s long term vision. Volatility in the first 10 years doesn’t prove it won’t eventually stabilize.

As for a news story related to Bitcoin getting some buzz:

Imagine Being Locked Out Of Your $200-Plus Million Bitcoin Fortune After Forgetting The Password – OutKick

Thomas was given 7,002 Bitcoin in 2011 for his work on a video that introduced the currency to many people….According to the Bitcoin wiki, between February and April 2011, the digital currency was worth $1 USD.  Thomas writes down a password to the small hard drive, the IronKey, that contains the private keys to the digital wallet and life goes on….As the story goes, Thomas soon lost the password, of which you get 10 guesses before the account locks up and encrypts into oblivion….Why can’t Thomas just call Bitcoin and get his password sent in the mail?
