Planet Money Episode 891: Who Won The Bet Over Bitcoin?

I don't know if anyone here listens to "Planet Money", a pop economics podcast by NPR. Their most recent episode was about widespread adoption of Bitcoin.
Specifically, it was about a bet between Ben Horowitz, a venture capitalist who believed that Bitcoin was on its way to becoming a widespread payment platform, and Felix Salmon, a finance journalist who thought it was going to go to zero. They made a bet 5 years ago, whether or not 10% of Americans would be using Bitcoin at least once a month, and they finally got the results today:
GOLDSTEIN: As promised, we went out and got Ipsos, a real polling firm, to ask 900-and-some Americans - a representative sample of Americans this question. Have you purchased anything using bitcoin as your payment in the last month? The percentage of Americans who said, yes, is three - three.
HOROWITZ: All right.
GOLDSTEIN: Now, they did ask those people - the people who said they had, they said, at what merchant did you make the purchase? And I have some of those answers. And it suggests that the 3 percent is a little high.
HOROWITZ: Yup.
GOLDSTEIN: If you go down this list, somebody said Gaia Ethnobotanical, which I looked up - in fact, does accept bitcoin. Subway - I think some Subways accept bitcoin. But there's also a bunch that say - this one says Litecoin. A few say Coinbase, which is a bitcoin cryptocurrency exchange. So these people are using bitcoin to buy other cryptocurrency.
Horowitz ended up admitting to something that a lot of people on this sub have been saying for a while as well:
KESTENBAUM: That's what Ben thought would happen with bitcoin. He thought the code that powers bitcoin would just get better and better and, very quickly, it would obviously be this safer, faster, more private, cheaper way for people to buy stuff online. That did not happen.
GOLDSTEIN: No. Bitcoins just became so valuable that the people who worked on the system didn't want to make it any better. They just wanted to lock everything down and keep it the way it was.
HOROWITZ: I think that what happened with bitcoin is that there is kind of one very, very strong need among the kind of investors/miners, which is that the code and the meaning of the code would not change.
And Salmon, the guy who bet against Bitcoin, hits on the real paradox of Bitcoin:
SALMON: I - honestly, I was looking back. I mean, there were two things which I expected would happen which didn't happen. One is I expected the price would probably go to zero, and it didn't. It went way up and to the right.
And the other is that I expected that there would actually be use cases over the following five years that, even if people weren't using it to buy stuff in stores, and that was my side of the bet, I imagined it would be used for remittances, or, somewhere along the line, it would have evolved. Especially if it had grown to be worth thousands of dollars per bitcoin, then it would be used for something.
GOLDSTEIN: So it's more valuable and less useful than you thought.

I'm in the USA. I want to buy someone a sandwhich (or beer) in Argentina using Bitcoin.

I'd like for someone to contact me who lives in some Buenos Aires who can go to the Subway that just started accepting Bitcoin (http://panampost.com/belen-marty/2014/08/08/we-accept-bitcoin-subway-franchise-in-argentina-goes-crypto/)
You go to Subway. Let me know how much your favorite sub costs. Maybe we use Whatsapp to communicate. Give me your Bitcoin wallet address, I transfer the funds and you enjoy lunch on me!

Libertarian Police

I was shooting heroin and reading “The Fountainhead” in the front seat of my privately owned police cruiser when a call came in. I put a quarter in the radio to activate it. It was the chief.
“Bad news, detective. We got a situation.”
“What? Is the mayor trying to ban trans fats again?”
“Worse. Somebody just stole four hundred and forty-seven million dollars’ worth of bitcoins.”
The heroin needle practically fell out of my arm. “What kind of monster would do something like that? Bitcoins are the ultimate currency: virtual, anonymous, stateless. They represent true economic freedom, not subject to arbitrary manipulation by any government. Do we have any leads?”
“Not yet. But mark my words: we’re going to figure out who did this and we’re going to take them down … provided someone pays us a fair market rate to do so.”
“Easy, chief,” I said. “Any rate the market offers is, by definition, fair.”
He laughed. “That’s why you’re the best I got, Lisowski. Now you get out there and find those bitcoins.”
“Don’t worry,” I said. “I’m on it.”
I put a quarter in the siren. Ten minutes later, I was on the scene. It was a normal office building, strangled on all sides by public sidewalks. I hopped over them and went inside.
“Home Depot™ Presents the Police!®” I said, flashing my badge and my gun and a small picture of Ron Paul. “Nobody move unless you want to!” They didn’t.
“Now, which one of you punks is going to pay me to investigate this crime?” No one spoke up.
“Come on,” I said. “Don’t you all understand that the protection of private property is the foundation of all personal liberty?”
It didn’t seem like they did.
“Seriously, guys. Without a strong economic motivator, I’m just going to stand here and not solve this case. Cash is fine, but I prefer being paid in gold bullion or autographed Penn Jillette posters.”
Nothing. These people were stonewalling me. It almost seemed like they didn’t care that a fortune in computer money invented to buy drugs was missing.
I figured I could wait them out. I lit several cigarettes indoors. A pregnant lady coughed, and I told her that secondhand smoke is a myth. Just then, a man in glasses made a break for it.
“Subway™ Eat Fresh and Freeze, Scumbag!®” I yelled.
Too late. He was already out the front door. I went after him.
“Stop right there!” I yelled as I ran. He was faster than me because I always try to avoid stepping on public sidewalks. Our country needs a private-sidewalk voucher system, but, thanks to the incestuous interplay between our corrupt federal government and the public-sidewalk lobby, it will never happen.
I was losing him. “Listen, I’ll pay you to stop!” I yelled. “What would you consider an appropriate price point for stopping? I’ll offer you a thirteenth of an ounce of gold and a gently worn ‘Bob Barr ‘08’ extra-large long-sleeved men’s T-shirt!”
He turned. In his hand was a revolver that the Constitution said he had every right to own. He fired at me and missed. I pulled my own gun, put a quarter in it, and fired back. The bullet lodged in a U.S.P.S. mailbox less than a foot from his head. I shot the mailbox again, on purpose.
“All right, all right!” the man yelled, throwing down his weapon. “I give up, cop! I confess: I took the bitcoins.”
“Why’d you do it?” I asked, as I slapped a pair of Oikos™ Greek Yogurt Presents Handcuffs® on the guy.
“Because I was afraid.”
“Afraid?”
“Afraid of an economic future free from the pernicious meddling of central bankers,” he said. “I’m a central banker.”
I wanted to coldcock the guy. Years ago, a central banker killed my partner. Instead, I shook my head.
“Let this be a message to all your central-banker friends out on the street,” I said. “No matter how many bitcoins you steal, you’ll never take away the dream of an open society based on the principles of personal and economic freedom.”
He nodded, because he knew I was right. Then he swiped his credit card to pay me.

reasons to own bitcoins

i copied from someone just in case you missed it:
My reasons are two fold. The prospects of Bitcoin growth are very high. The value of USD will go down drastically in next 10 years or so. Both these things put together 1 BTC = 500k USD is pretty much possible in a decade.
Inspite of all the news and hungama around bitcoin still there are a lot of people who have not even heard of bitcoin. Out of all those people who have heard of bitcoin only a few have invested in bitcoin or used bitcoin. Just imaging what happens when all these people start using bitcoin or start investing in bitcoin. Not many stores have started accepting bitcoin. This news that 260,000 stores in Japan will start accepting bitcoins (and other similar news) led to bull run for Bitcoin. Just imagine what happens when businesses in countries like India and China (37% of world population) start accepting bitcoins. Subway starts accepting Bitcoin. Imagine what happens when more popular stores like these start accepting Bitcoin. There are only a handful of websites that accept bitcoin. Imagine the day Amazon and Ebay starts accepting Bitcoin. Most of the mutual funds and Investments funds have not even started investing in Bitcoin. Imagine the inflow of funds when they Funds start investing in Bitcoin. Cryptocurrency(Bitcoin) is the first truly international currency. Today most of the value of USD is because anybody can buy oil using USD. The most of the value of USD is because it is a globally accepted currency. The day the world feels that they have a credible alternative the price of USD tumble. Once the countries start seeing Bitcoin as an alternative they will start moving their funds from USD reserves to Bitcoin mining. If you think this is a overstatement, check this out “Russia has the potential to reach up to 30 percent share in global cryptocurrency mining in the future," Marinichev said. Bitcoin mining has the potential to become individual contry’s pride and also having a say in International finance. The more countries joining the bandwagon, the stabler Bitcoin becomes. Bitcoin is flexible. By standing strong on August 1st Bitcoin has proved that the community can reach consensus and improve for a course correction. Wherever a soft fork is not possible or is risky, there is always an alternative of a fork. Based on the output of the new currency Bitcoin can then decide which route to take. All the value of the Bitcoin is just because of its utility as a currency. Once the usecases for bitcoin increases like that of Ether the value will go high further.

4 Years ago, we started accepting Bitcoin at my Subway Restaurant. The first order we sold with Bitcoin is now worth over $275 today!

In November of 2013, Adam Welsh made the first and historic trip and purchased a Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwich Meal at my Subway Restaurant in Allentown, PA. The cost at the time was $12.35 or 0.04 BTC.
Today, 0.04 BTC = approx $280.
Original Post (from 4 years ago): https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1q52tt/subway_accepting_bitcoins/
Adam had recorded the entire transaction here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWsd1WwhhNg
4 years later, we still accept Bitcoin as form of payment! Can we get some other Subway's onboard?!?!
Edit: To the Moon!

Is Bitcoin Anonymous? Individuals often think bitcoin is anonymous, but truth be told it actually isn't as anonymous as some might think. Bitcoin, being the most valuable as well as most popular coin out of the vast list of growing cryptos, is in fact pseudonymous. Reason being since each user or identity is known as an address, which can technically be tracked back to an individual if the person is not careful enough. Security measures must be taken in order for an individual to use bitcoin privately and they must be taken often if untraceable bitcoin transactions is something desired when using bitcoin. As most bitcoin users know, BTC transactions can be seen by anyone at anytime from anywhere on the blockchain. Even though the blockchain is just full of addresses sending and receiving BTC, an address can actually become otherwise known as an identity if the bitcoins that were purchased were made using a credit card or bank account on a big bitcoin exchange. Big bitcoin exchanges often have policies that require KYC "Know Your Customer" which can end up legally linking a persons name to a bitcoin address and the BTC it's holding. An easy fix to this problem is to use a bitcoin mixer or bitcoin tumbler as it will completely remove and dismantle ownership to the bitcoins resulting in full bitcoin anonymity. Once the link to the identity and bitcoins is broken, it is lost forever and the bitcoins are cleared of ownership unless found again. Anonymous bitcoin services are offered all over the web but you must be sure you're going to use a trusted bitcoin mixer. By using a trusted bitcoin tumbler you can be sure that the BTC being sent into the bitcoin blender is safe, will be mixed thoroughly, and be delivered back to you. If one wants to be extra careful then it's best to mix bitcoins using a no logs bitcoin mixing service as this ensures all private data will be kept unseen. If one is careful and takes precaution then complete bitcoin anonymization and peace of mind can be accomplished.

Am I Anonymous When Using Bitcoin? Bitcoin is not a fully anonymous cryptocurrency like some crypto coins out there, but you can still use the most valuable coin (BTC) and still be hidden from the many curious spying eyes. A service which is known as a bitcoin blender can help with obtaining the anonymity that some deeply desire. Using a service known as a bitcoin blender is the very best way to transact with bitcoin and still remain completely anonymous. If one is concerned about revealing their personal identity then a bitcoin blender service is the very best way to continue transacting bitcoin while keeping a personal identity on a private lock down.
