They will always be buttcoins.

I'd rather invest in tinned food, firearms, medical supplies, books on agriculture, farming tools, seeds and construction equipment.

"Precious" metals are only that way because humans like shiny rocks - if the world goes so bad that money becomes worthless, a years' worth of food is worth more than it's weight in gold. The equpiment and knowledge to grow more reliably, priceless.




And gold and silver will only retain their "value" as long as it has a demand, when people are more worried about food, shelter, clothing and survival, precious metals will take a nose dive, kind of like the recent gold bubble that just took a nosedive already.

If you can explain to me how bitcoin's work in a reasonable manner (without linking me anything to read, because screw that), then I will bring this up at the summit.

They work by scamming gullible idiots out of their money with RON PAUL FIAT CURRENCY FREE MARKET SMASH BIG GUBMENT libertarian buzzwords to get them to buy magic beans, which can only be used to buy drugs, kiddie porn, and Magic:The Gathering cards.

For the love of all that's holy, don't bring this up at the summit. You'd be better off asking CCP to let us pay for our accounts with bacon, chickens, and fresh fruit. At least these don't involve embedded pron.

De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

I got a lot of leftover token coins from Chuck-e-Cheese Pizza.

I demand that CCP take Chuck-e-Cheese coins!
BTW I still have old Showbiz Pizza token coins too. Are these valid currency as well?

Jesus Christ, It's like I'm actually on /pol/.

+1 from me - if a company as widely known as CCP starts accepting buttcoins, my returns will get even bigger.

Why is there so much hostility towards bitcoins? I've mined a couple hundred $ as it is now, and I'd love to spend them on eve.

You don't even have to touch them. You can just partner with an exchange, and the bitcoins are instantly exchanged into $$$, and the payer has to take whatever the current exchange rate is. There's literally no reason not to do this. There's zero risk to Eve/CCP and zero impact on the economy.

Seriously, go look up services like VPN's that accept bitcoins. They never even touch them.

Leave it to a fellow player to take it to the lowest level, how often do you pay to see that?

when its recognized as a legitimate instead of seized by the law for criminal activities, then i MAY consider it somewhere below paypal, which i don't use either, because its not secure. there is Every risk to CCP/the player as there is no recourse of fraud outside of the bitcoin universe. at least when i invest in precious medals and gems, i have a tangible asset to represent my investment, instead of a possible encrypted hash in a log somewhere.

CCP has broken all the rules and barriers in the MMO realm, Bitcoin does the same to currencies and the concept of monetary independence. Trust in the hash, because it only gets better.

Bitcoin, as a currency, is essentially worthless. Anyone that accepts it as a valid form of currency is an idiot.

If you aren't okay with investing in Bitcoins, that's fine. They're not for everyone. The idea obviously appeals to some people, and I don't see why we shouldn't include more payment options. There's also absolutely no risk to CCP. They are paired with an exchange, and they have nothing to do with the Bitcoins directly.

CCP does not accept Bitcoins. They accept cash, which is given to them by the exchange that accepts Bitcoins.
