    What if I don't have bitcoin or $300 what should I do ????????

  3. Micheal McLaurin September 13, 2017 at 8:39 pm

    What I don't get is how Bitcoin has anysort of value tbh cause it's like imaginary money if you will and I get that only 21 billion coins can exist at Max but still thiers no physical value to it and quite frankly it can be dangerous cuase it can easily be destoyed or stolen seeing as its a digital currency. Please share your thoughts on this cuase I'm having a hard time understanding Bitcoin. Also out of shear curiosity I looked up how much it costs and all and it seems backwards to me, you have to pay more for it than it's actual value which is wrong in every way. The thing with currencies is that a dollar is a dollar is a dollar. When exchanging a dollar you exchange it for the exact amount that currency is worth in terms of a USD which doesn't change in value at all. So for you to pay more than the currency notes actually worth makes absolutely no sense cuase you would be losing money cuase the currency exchange would be less than the actual value of how much you exchange it for. Now I get turning a profit and all but Bitcoin is mined in the first place and it's a currency meaning that you should only get the amount your exchanging for in USD to equal that same amount in Bitcoin. Please share thoughts on this cuase I'm still not understanding Bitcoin at all cuase to me it seems like a massive scan and in truth will only cost you more than you would be getting in return.

    If Microsoft would release Windows source code to public, nothing like that would happen. The hole in windows SMB protocol been there since mid 2000s, it could be already found and patched years ago if millions of smart people around the globe could see the code.The key to secure software is open source like Linux is. Microsoft would only win from this, it's both win/win decision.

    That what you get for killing Tay, microsoft!
