Everying the OP said could easily be entirely true.

However - this DOES not IMO mean bitcoin has to go to the moon.

Now the regulatory framework is in place and the tech polished, there is NOTHING stopping 'them' from retarting the whole operation under a different currency.


Maybe a slightly more efficient less data heavy one too.

Or at least a reset

SO literally tomorrow- they could release a NEW 'official' 'endorsed' version with an entirely different public friendly name.

BITCOIN would slowly glide down to zero.


Everything the OP said could be correct, and if so I THINK BITCOIN HAS BEEN A DUMMY RUN - A FIELD TESTING PART OF THE RESEARCH

SO for the reasons OP thinks bitcoin will go to the moon, i think that for those very same reasons suggest it will slowly decline to zero.

Bitcoin 2.0 will be the real deal.

in the case of bitcoin - the skim for the creators is unethically insanely huge.

If the world adopted bitcoin the creators would be the richest people ever to have existed on earth in terms of currency holdings.

GO see how much % of the entire bitcoin system remains owned by the creators.

Without ever having to create any.

Its obscene. AN allows them to slowly fleece large amounts of real money as the bitcoin empire grows.

Re: Bitcoin Was Created By DARPA
If anyone thinks mining bitcoin is easy here go ahead and give it a shot:


I figured I'd calculate how long it would take to mine bitcoin using a pen and paper for fun.


It takes 3385 integer operations to calculate one double SHA-256 hash.


These are 32-bit operations, so we'll give a very generous estimate of 10 seconds per operation (we're assuming that you're a numeric genius)


This works out to a rate of .0000295 hashes per second. Not bad, right?

Throwing the current difficulty (609482679.88835) into this calculator gives us an average time of 2,809,786,333,451,380 years to mine one block. Have no fear, this is only 200000 times the age of the universe.

Now, at current rates of 25 BTC/block, and $800/BTC, this gives us an hourly profit of $0.000000000000000609/hr (assuming we're contributing to a pool, since competing with ASIC machines is just unfair), or about 1/300 of a quadrillionth the national (US) average.
What would it cost you to perform this?

One three ounce bottle of Noodler's ink is $12.50, and will write for approximately 33 km. Let's say that you're working in binary, and drawing a 1 and a 0 uses 1cm of ink, and you need to write 2 32 bit numbers per addition operation.

That's 2166.4 meters of ink per hash. You can do about 50 operations on each side of a piece of paper. Paper runs for about a cent a page on Amazon, so that's about 34 cents per hash.

At the (approximate) 2,728,647,008,755,700,000 hashes you need to mine one block, adding these two costs together gives you a whopping $3,162,791,285,103,330,000.00 per block, or, if you're keeping track, you earn 0.000000000000474% of the money you spent mining that block (excluding the cost of petayears worth of food and shelter, and assuming the difficulty of mining and the value of bitcoin freezes forver at this moment).

Anyone want to get started with me?
 Quoting: Philligan


I can give you a real world example...

--I have a 6.5G/h ASIC miner.
--It mines about 0.0051 BTC per day
--Power consumption is 30 watts

The cost of the unit was $274 + shipping for a total of $308

I had no intention of it making any meaningful profit. It was a good way to learn more. I bought it with profit anyway so no harm. Also it helps support a decentralized money exchange system.
 Quoting: GFX guy


But the currency is still not covered by anything than computing speed in a world of computers. the day everything goes to shaite i'd rather rely on seemingly true values as gold and minerals.
My best advice is to BUY GOLD.
Bitcoin is unintendently the futuristic version of the tinfoil version of skynet in evils arms :)

Re: Bitcoin Was Created By DARPA
There is no way to stop what is going to happen to bitcoin. It's an issue of sociology. It's an issue of human greed. It's an issue as to WHO created bitcoin and WHY.

Who is the single largest holder of BTC right now? "Satoshi". Who is he? I will say it again. NSA/DARPA created bitcoin under the guidance of the IMF. The IMF has been openly calling for a digital, one-world, deflationary currency for 2 decades. OPENLY. It has been discussed and promoted OPENLY at G8 and G20 summits.

from the early 90s-96 the NSA was OPENLY investigating cryptographic money networks.

[link to groups.csail.mit.edu]

One of their researchers and investigators is a man named Tatsuaki Okamoto. When they actively started writing the code they chose the pseudonym "Satoshi Nakamura" to ultimately promote the idea that Tatsuaki Okamoto to any and all who investigated the source of bitcoin long enough. But Tatsuaki Okamoto is just a cog. He's not some rogue savoir out to topple centralized banks. Not at all. He is a crypto scientist who was paid by government and intelligence agencies to do research.

Bitcoin is an NSA/DARPA lab set into the wild. Scientific technology grants issued by government and intelligence agencies are how these labs are funded and promoted. The regulation and control of bitcoin has been actively developed alongside the development of the network. In fact, the controls, policy and regulation are WAY WAY more mature than the bitcoin protocol itself. That's why we see things like Greenlist written into law without a mention of bitcoin until recently.

This is not tinfoil hattish. This is just reality. No one forced ANYONE to believe the Satoshi fairytale.. The libertarian Satoshi myth has been promoted in stealth to specifically promote ADOPTION and DEVELOPMENT. It's no different than the internet and WWW itself. EXACTLY the same. That is why you see many www early adopters saying bitcoin "feels" the same as the early internet. I am one of those people.

In 94-96 the public internet was ALL about freedom of information. FREE COMMUNICATION. It was ALL about liberty and freedom. I wish i could transport some of you back in time so you could see for yourselves. The promise of free phonecalls with the freeworlddialup, free media with IUMA and the MBONE. All this freedom and liberty had people pouring their heart and soul into developing it. Now look at it. Facebook, google.. it is a GIANT SURVEILLANCE grid. And if you look for and read DARPA/NSA docs from the 80s and early 90s that was what it was always meant to be. I am not discounting all the socially great things that happen online.. But from the perspective of DARPA/NSA and control freaks.. it was created for the express purpose of control. A military purpose. A strategic purpose.

What is bitcoin? Bitcoin IS the one world digital currency. We all have a deterministic UUID that has been generated from our biometric data. This UUID will be related to all your datastores. This UUID is your mark. This UUID is what is used to buy and sell online and in the real world. This UUID is the primary key in your Greenlist identity.

Coinbase, blockchain.info and it would appear Coinsetter are inline to be the first to roll out the incoming policy and regulation. This policy and regulation is WORLD WIDE. It is CORPORATE. It is not about governments. Governments ADOPT corporate organized policies. If you think this is new than you need to investigate ACH and NACHA.
[link to www.nacha.org (secure)] [link to www.slideshare.net]

Bitcoin is THEIR network. And for the minority early adopters that is going to be a hard pill to swallow.. But for those in the know.. Like Gavin, it's PAYDAY. Realization and monetization of their massive bitcoin holdings is being guaranteed by regulators. That is why they are all literally RUSHING to regulate.

Legitimization of bitcoin is all about hosted wallets. The centralization of bitcoin. Hosted wallet providers approve/dissaprove transactions before they are actually issued on the network. Greenlist enabled wallets will be the fastest. (offline transactions). Greenlist enabled wallets will be hooked directly to your bank account, ease of buying and selling. Greenlist enabled exchanges will have the largest market with the best prices. Greenlist enabled wallets will completely eliminate risk of stolen coins. No more security worries AT ALL. And this is what the masses have come to expect. And this is why it's going to happen. And Greenlisted wallets will be accepted everywhere. And in the physical world you will identify yourself and your wallet with your biometrics.

[link to bitcointalk.org (secure)]

TL;DR bitcoin is a global digital currency, regulation was created in tandem with development and adoption, bitcoin is not and never was meant to be a liberty promoting value exchange. There is no "satoshi". The central banks are already the largest holders of bitcoin. Bitcoin IS going to the moon because of this.

Re: Bitcoin Was Created By DARPA
OP and several people here have no idea what DARPA actually is, or what it does. It's not a big secret black program, it's a bunch of administrators and tech hunters in a shitty government building. They don't actually DO research, they find innovation and encourage it.

Once again though, don't let facts stand in the way of a cool story.

Cryptocurrencies go along with the old adage- when the cabbie tells you to buy a stock, it's already way too late.
 Quoting: Monkeyslap


You mean they fund research by MIT and Ivy League nerds, then take constructive ownership of it, conceal it until a time of their choosing, then hire the nerds to be the public faces of whatever it is (zuck/facebook, for example). What's your point? The nerds work for DARPA and it's DARPA's tech. Who cares if Zuck didn't sit in a basement lab in Ft. Meade as part of the project. The end result is the same.

Re: Bitcoin Was Created By DARPA
TL;DR bitcoin is a global digital currency, regulation was created in tandem with development and adoption, bitcoin is not and never was meant to be a liberty promoting value exchange. There is no "satoshi". The central banks are already the largest holders of bitcoin. Bitcoin IS going to the moon because of this.

Well there may be some truth to this afterall!

I resurrected this mutherfucker for you all to see.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children.

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.

And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Re: Bitcoin Was Created By DARPA
Strange how BTC evolved from the 2008 financial crash as Anonymous evolved from the loss of Aaron Schwartz. From where I am stood it looks like a statement against tptb and is obviously a decentralized system that is beginning to seriously threaten big boy bankers. Why would the banks create a huge threat against themselves ? When guys like Warren Buffet are calling it 'rat poison' you need to ask yourself why. Nobody will know the truth fo it unless Satoshi himself steps forward and claims it is his with proof. Another qusetion I ponder is why a pseudonym ? And the only answer I keep coming up with is if the big boys knew who he was then .... he would have been stopped before 2009.

Maybe DARPA did, maybe a tech genius did.

I think the latter but who knows really ?

Bitcoin is just another 'get rich quick' scheme. You want money, it's simple, get off your ass and get to work.
