Hey, first off, I am not affiliated with Bitcoinstore in any way, have never met anyone there, etc. They are on an experimental deal with Ingram, a massive distributer that used to fuel most of Amazon’s catalog, and have negotiated a super-low pricing tier, but it looks like Bitcoinstore is going to miss their hurdle for keeping low prices . I have no idea if they will be in business next week .
I’ve always been in to silver/gold because of the inevitable decline in purchasing power of the US dollar. I finally pulled the trigger on bitcoins earlier today. First time buyer. I didn’t buy a ton, but I’m officially in the market. So, hello! submitted by j2510 link 31 comments

WAIT: You’re about to downboat me because I mentioned facebook. That’s cool. You probably don’t like it. It’s where the kids hang out and it’s riddled with invasions of privacy. Where do you think our biggest opportunity is? Facebook. Now walk your happy ass over to that arrow and make it red. The Revolution: Let’s start the next bitcoin revolution on Reddit tonight. I’m about to plant a seed that will make bitcoin a reality for the world. The goal seems impossible, and I have …
You’ve heard it before: the dollar exchange to bitcoin is just a side show, it really doesn’t matter. I would like to expand on that: When people ask you about bitcoin, avoid talking about the current price or how it exploded, because then you’ll be talking about bubbles, pyramid schemes and the inherent value of things, and all that is irrelevant to bitcoin. Yes, I have a few and I love seeing my money grow when the price goes up and buying …

I very much sympathize with the old school goldbug scepticism about Bitcoin. It’s very reassuring to feel the weight of your money in your hand, and I don’t believe that Bitcoin meets with Mises regression theorem. But even if you don’t see Bitcoin as a sound form of money, you have got to admit that it’s damned useful! Bitcoin is perhaps the best alternative available at the moment for those suffering under the fiat banking system. As such it’s great to see an increasing number of traditional goldbug institutions, such as GoldMoney, embrace Bitcoin.
In a new podcast GoldMoney’s Andy Duncan discusses Bitcoin with the Bitcoin Foundation’s Jon Matonis. They discuss Bitcoin’s volatility, it’s dependence on the internet, 1 yr and 10 yr predictions for the currency and the ongoing Bitcoin vs Gold debate.
