Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Anyone calling Proof of Keys a “bank run” is confusing banks – who give loans and are fractional reserve by nature – to exchanges and wallets which make money on trade and transfer fees and should always be 100% solvent.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Anyone else tired of their parents sending you articles on “The Bitcoin Ponzi Scheme”

Just wanted to see out there if anyone else is tired of their loved ones sending them negative articles about Bitcoin. There is always nothing substantial about them and they are always just pure conjecture. Usually from some old guy who never dives into the tech of Bitcoin and just calls it a pyramid scheme.

Just got a text with this article below. I'm really sick of getting these links sent to me. On the bright side Bitcoin obituaries is getting more links.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Does anyone know who/what is LNBIG.com – they added over 200BTC into new LN ????

Since last few days LN capacity is exploding due to one person/company/what is it?Nodes have LNBIG.com in name – but URL does not have a website and domain registration details does not show anything interesting. Anyone has any ideas?
