Have you really looked into Bitcoin?

Forever Liberty, I see you are a passionate and active member of the DP community, and have interest in a bunch of issues, so I wish you well and hope that you will take the time to try and understand the bitcoin system. I remember when I thought I knew *everything* about life, money, and everything that we take for granted... and then I WOKE UP to the fiasco that is our political system, the FRAUD that is our monetary system, and a bunch of other things I am sure we would agree on!

- so, please allow JixMainstream to educate you, and everyone here and instead of jumping to conclusion that you have no real arguements to back, try "attacking" or questioning JixMainstream's post at hand, I think you may find many people here who are ready and willing to help you, to guide you to where we all took A LONG TIME to arrive, an understanding of the Bitcoin protocol that goes beyond just a quick and dirty label of "scam" because it is not really a "coin" and "not gold"
- in fact the name is supposed to be suggestive of some of the properties of the protocol that allows its use as a medium of exchange that among many things has LIMITED QUANTITY, FUNGIBLE, TRANSFERABLE, and NOT FALSIFIABLE -- kind'a like our friend: 'Gold' and its next of kin; gold 'Coins'
- I don't think the name is meant to be deceptive, it is meant to be descriptive of the properties of the design of the protocol

Just plain 'Happy'about the direction the world is taking! Especially if we live to reach LEV [Longevity Escape Velocity]
