Free Bitcoin - No Bs "update"

It's my humble opinion that if you have not used Bitcoin yet, then you are missing out on a great experience. Yes, there are a lot of sensational BTC headlines across the media everyday. As to be expected, the media breezes over the true story and focuses on the tabloid stories. The true story is a fantastic user experience.

I get it, many believers in Gold and Silver issues with BTC's Intrinsic Value. I love Gold and Silver. And I love earning and spending Bitcoin!

Leaving that aside, I don't recommend putting your life savings into it. BTC is a baby, and babies get grumpy. So unless your in for a wild ride, then it's probably best just to play around with it at a minimal investment.

Therefore,

I'm offering to send $3 in Bitcoin to the first 10 people that want them.

""""""""UPDATE""""""

The first 10 winners have been awarded their Bitcoin! Congrats and enjoy. :) Please do not send me anymore PM's for entry.

That's right, I can send you money in real time, with no transfer fees, without ANY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION!

So far so good

Seems simple enough so far, gonna buy something on overstock tomorrow.

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.

Received

Got my bitcoin. This is great. Not going to save me from the end of the monetary system as we know it but it will be deflationary compared to the FRN.

It's a much better experience to give someone Bitcoin in person

Understandable, a few people, not all, thought I was trying to rip them off or steal info.

When trading Bitcoin in person, it's usually with people you know, so the aura of doubt is gone.

Thanks

Let the free play begin. What to buy first? Juicy fruit? A sock from overstock?

jk
:)

Ha ha

Not much purchasing power. But you can amaze your friends by sending them a penny in bitcoin if the subject comes up.

Or you could send a .25 cent tip to reporters that provide stories that you enjoy.

bitcoin forensics

Bitcoin wallets are anonymous until you try to conduct business. This is because every BTC transaction is a matter of public record.

If I wanted to find out who you people were I might watch the blockchain for twilson1utk and wait for him to send roughly 0.000468 BTC ($3 usd) into 10 different accounts. 000468 exactly 10 times is unique and can be spotted.

After I see this, then I know 2 things. (1) I know the 10 corresponding BTC addresses are all dailypaulers, most of whom will probably post here and identify themselves, anyway (2) that the source wallet is twilson1utk.

Because the blockchain is public record I can follow you 10 people forever. It can be tedious work accomplished by one individual, or automated work accomplished by a script or program.

You could try tumbling your address, but if someone has the resources to track your transactions through the blockchain, it is not likely to be effective, particularly if I am the person running the tumbling service.

Also to note is tumbling is used to hide the actual origin of a bitcoin. If you know the origin before it tumbles (which we would in this case), then tumbling does nothing.

The point is that as soon as you attempt to cash them out somebody is going to be able to figure out your identity.

If you trying to stay anonymous, you might be better off finding $3 in your laundry basket and spending it where your transactions are not automatically recorded.

who said anything about anonymous?

All I said is that you won't need to send any information, other than an email.

Isn't this a greater advancement than what we currently have with Paypal and Credit Cards?

just an fyi

for the layperson who may have been wondering what they are forfeiting in return for some BTC.

I am reminded of how hackers would send a person a link to their own website, and when they click on it, they would discover their unique IP address by checking the logs.

Or how hackers could invite you into IRC or AIM to chat with you, and once you establish connection, then you have unwittingly given them your IP.

it's a similar scenario when accepting bitcoins. Even if you have only given an email address. Except when they go to spend, it always ends in the forfeiture of their real names, address, and banking information.

is it often that your paranoia stops you from opportunity?

If there is anything to fear, it's not hackers gaining access to your IP. It's the US Government gaining access to your IP.

And if you think that a hacker can gain access to your banking information through an email then your fears are definitely bloated.

The Red Coats are coming!

government gaining access to this? yes. precisely the point

hacker gaining access to bank info through email?

no. not what I said.

Thank You

Matt. It was as easy as fallin' off a log backwards. Thank you for the feeling that I am some part of the future.

God forgives always. Man forgives sometimes. But Nature never forgives.

Your golden opportunity

I'll take your Bitcoins if you first send an ounce of gold to my P.O. box.
I accept American Eagles, Austrian Philharmonics, Canadian Maple Leafs or South African Krugerrand.
Your choice.

please send me $50 dollars so I can mail your gold

Irony.

The Red Coats are coming!

SASE

I'll mail you a SASE.
What's your address? ; )

No reason to be rude dude

.

The Red Coats are coming!

Not meaning to be rude

I just don't see much value in something "free" that requires my email address.
Call me a skeptic.

I hope your free Bitcoins make you fabulously wealthy, enough to fund your great-grandchildren's college educations.

I will post all the BTC transactions so you can verify

Everyone can view them on the blockchain at blockchain.org

I have a wallet...and a question

I set up bitcoin way back when it was only $2. I kick myself for not buying then but my question is, what is up with the key chains and downloading them. I had not opened my wallet for a long time and when it was updating the keys it took an entire day to download the key chains and did not even finish. Have they addressed this problem?

I assume you are talking

I assume you are talking about the blockchain. The blockchain is quite large right now and will be getting larger in the future, but most consumers have no need to use the standard client that makes downloading the blockchain mandatory.

Use Multibit or Electrum. The devs are planning to scrap the original wallet functionality of the client anyways and will now only reccommend bitcoin QT to miners or other people who want to run a full node.

Did you download the Bitcoin client?

It can take a day or so to download.
