A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.
Ethereum seems like it has the momentum with all the yield farming, but bitcoin's low volatility suggests it might be more undervalued than ethereum. Ethereum might be a bit over heated. Ethereum has a lower marketcap which makes the room for growth higher, but the network itself seems unable to sustain the growth due to the congestion. Bitcoin has the scarcity and mainstream appeal

In your opinion, what is *wrong* with Bitcoin? (OR) What improvements would you like to see?
I happen to like Bitcoin the way it is right now. I'm not bothered by the lack of privacy nor am I bothered by the speed of transactions. ...and I'm definitely not a maximalist. I hold some other cryptos, too. That said, I know that many people think Bitcoin isn't good enough, so I want to know why they think that. Is it the privacy issue? Is it the speed issue? Not enough security? Not enough decentralization? Lack of smart contracts? Something else?
I am an accounting student in a California university. No professors or students even know what Bitcoin or crypto even is.
With fiat failing the world day by day no one seems to care. Monopoly money keeps printing and the wealth gap between the ultra rich and everyone else increases. How much are people exposed to Bitcoin and crypto at your college or workplace?
Hypothetical. I want to send funds to the Kurdish republic of Rojava in Syria to support them during this crisis of theirs, the only way I can do this is through bitcoin (or other crypto).
So what the title says. Lets say I want to support Rojava because they are one of the few bastions in Syria which is actually secular, liberal and democratic. I've done so regularly in the past through traditional channels (which has cost a lot of money in fees) and it has worked well. So this was allowed through traditional means untill Turkey, under americas allowance, invaded their terroritory and forced Rojava to align itself with the syrian government/former government in order to be able to defend themselves against the Turkey army that consider them to be terrorists because they happen to be kurds that have regional autonomy and means to defend themselves. (this is btw after america gave Rojava their guarantee that america would defend the kurds against Turkey if it came to that, in exchange for Rojava dismantling their turkey-facing defensive structures) From now on, depending on your domiciled country, many westerners can no longer financially support Rojava because of an ocean or reasons. For some its that you're not allowed to financially support states that are in armed conflict with an ally (Turkey is in NATO), for others its that you're not allowed to financially support organisations that cooperate with Assad (nevermind that it was america that put them in the position that they had to), and there is a host of others. Now how can I support Rojava in any other way than through bitcoin/other crypto? I've looked it up, it does indeed work and they have bitcoin addresses one can donate too. (as I understand it they even have specified addresses if you want to donate to some specific section, like if you specifically want to support child healthcare) Now could you please tell me of another comparable or better way to donate to this cause, other than through crypto? I cant wire it or in any way use banking, its simply not possible due to regs. I cant send money in the mail because mail delivery over that distance and into syrian territory is spotty at best and if the letter is taken by another group then I've inadvertedly supported what is likely a islamic fundamentalist militia. I also know crypto fees is a big joke in here but the fees to send letters to syria dwarf any crypto transaction fee. (not to mention the fucking headache, I struggle sending packages to the next country over, cant even begin to consider everything that I'll need to do to send something to Syria) Please let me know how I'm wrong in that this is the best and potentially only way of doing this. Further let me know how crypto still doesnt have a use case if you agree that I'm right on this. (Hey mister FBI-guy, if you're reading this I just want it clear that I'm making a hypothetical here. I wouldnt send a cent to godless socialists in the middle east, I'm just a normal american that watches football and boo at the blacks when they kneel, not an ounce of unamerican-ness in my body)
I can't use Paypal in my country, Bitcoin or Agent?

The problem here it's that im new in this hole thing and idk how to use an Agent, neither sending bitcoins lol
Ammo sellers should consider taking Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies
There has been some talk about banks and other payment processors blocking the sale of ammo and firearms if Washington can't legislate. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/19/business/banks-gun-sales.html We live in the era of woke capitalism, and big corporations have been tending more liberal in the past few years. Bitcoin solves this problem. A few misconceptions:
Bitcoin is NOT anonymous. Its actually the most open and transparent system of payment ever devised (look into blockchain)
The volatility of the price is irrelevant if you are merely converting cash into BTC and making an immediate payment
I have no idea if actual firearms sales can be done in Bitcoin from a legal perspective, but I suspect ammo should be able to
BITCOIN (ROI + 8.957% / price last four weeks + 20%) SUN (ROI -68% / price last four weeks -75%) Bitcoin could reach a new ATH of around $ 20,000 by Christmas ... SUN will make another $ 20 or head towards $ 0 Which coin will perform better in the next few weeks? What do you all mean?
