Why Square went on a $50 million Bitcoin buying spree ...

Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

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.

Update 3/16/17

I know there are a lot of questions involving me as well as my involvement with a recent bamboozle on /me_irl.
Though this was a bamboozle where the original post's promise was not kept, I did not scam people of their money in any way. The bamboozle was not premeditated, and was a decision we all made when we realized that the task was much larger than the math people told us it would be. There were donations accepted during the stream, if people felt like it. The donations were to help pay for the costs of the sticky notes, as well as other expenses for the stream and walls. Since I did not keep my promise and finish writing the notes, I decided to refund all of the donations during the stream. Several people have told me that I am a scammer for 'stealing' money from people. I would argue that this is not the case, and even if I didn't refund people, then it still wouldn't be the case, since it was a donation.
Since some people are saying that I can no longer be trusted, and that I am now going to scam in all of my trades, I do want to just inform you of this, and that it is certainly not true. I'm trading on GCX just as always. I'm not going to be replying to any questions in the comments regarding the bamboozle stunt, to try and keep this thread clean. There was a discussion in /Giftcardexchange a few days ago. Please keep all discussion there. If you do have additional questions for me personally you can send me a PM and I'll get back to you.
Thanks!
