Why don't you try... oh, I don't know, pulling your head out of your ass and reading the millions of critiques out there that very, very effectively tear Bitcoin down on pretty much every single point its proponents have ever put forward as a reason it should be worth something?
Millions? Huh. Care to provide any links to the ones you think are especially informative?
Your faith in Bitcoin (and yes, it's faith, because it is totally unsupported facts) is making you look more than just a little foolish. As are your irrelevant claims to be an authority of any kind on the subject, and your apparent compulsion to carry on defending it with follow-up posts days after everyone else has passed this topic by.
1. You've made a mistake. I suggest you re-read my first response to you. I clearly state that I'm betting against bitcoin's long term prospects.
2. Nowhere in this thread (or on this site) have I ever claimed to be an authority on bitcoin. All I did was inform you of my background in banking/finance in response to your childish claim of superiority (which you have yet to demonstrate).

It's time to pack your robe away, put down the manifesto, and move on to your next foolish obsession. Or grow up. Either or.
Bitcoin has been a curiosity for me, not an obsession. And no matter what my opinion may be with regard to it's success or failure, I will continue to study it because I find it intellectually stimulating.
I don't really expect to learn much from you, though. Your posts in this thread have so far been devoid of any factual data or reasoned arguments.
