    There are advantages of having multiple private keys contained within a single wallet. The importing and exporting of wallet keys across different wallet clients can get interesting. The management and syncing of multiple wallets can get complex. Maybe these can be topics for the next meeting that could delve into advanced wallet concepts to help people determine what wallet will be best for them in the long run?

    Had a blast collaborating with like minded people. Looking forward to another meetup. What will the theme of the next meetup be? (ATMs, exchanges, mining, cybersecurity, taxes, trends...)

      This diagram, in my opinion, brings up an interesting aspect. The aspect of defining what a crypto-currency can be. For example, is it being used as an investment vehicle or is it being used for quick transactions? One service that central banks provide is defining what kind of money is out there and how fast it is moving (e.g., M0,M1, etc...) I believe that crypto-currencies will need to programmatically design ways to capture and define that data before they can move up the pyramid as noted in the article you posted, thus providing the same service as a central bank, without actually being one. What do you think?

    In the future, people could potentially have hundreds of open source credit transactions per month that are revocable, but paying their monthly credit bills can be conveniently performed using non-revocable P2P crypto currency transactions that have no international borders because the Ledgers are public information, and the P2P cat is out of the bag. The revoke-ability talking point from the big Banks is crap... This is mainstream media and back door Washington politics at its worst. The fact is paper cash transactions are by their very nature essentially non revocable. Possession is 9/10 of the law. The P2P crypto currencies are next generation digitally ready paper cash. It’s as if the mainstream media and congressional talking points are intentionally conflating revocable credit transaction services with non-revocable Exter tier two services so the big banks can retain their monopolies. The handwriting is on the wall...

    The typical approaches for acquiring Bitcoin currency are:

    1. Obtaining an account at an exchange
    2. Face-to-face Bitcoin meetups
    3. Accepting them for payment for trade or services rendered
    4. Outsource mining using a contract vehicle
    5. Being a proxy between a consumer willing to pay in Bitcoins and a producer desiring payments in legacy currency
    6. Mine yourself

    Each of the approaches above have their own pros and cons. At this time, the difficulty and time required is nominally represented in the order listed above. The article below provides details for approach #1.

    It’s inevitable that the Exter Pyramid layer two just above the lowest tier (specie) will eventually become defacto P2P crypto currencies. The layer above the crypto currencies will delve into credit contract & proposal principles that will utilize different trust models that are constrained by regional laws used to enforce those contracts of commerce. However, this higher layer will be able to support much greater transaction rates than what the P2P cryptos will handle as we know them today. My point is Bitcoin may not have to risk forking the Blockchain in the name of achieving higher scalability. The confluence with other P2P crypto currencies, and higher-level frameworks should literally provide top cover.

    Have you tried recently to buy new big iron ASIC crypto mining hardware (with 6 to 12 month lifecycles) with a credit card, or Paypal recently? You will know the P2P crypto currency war with the big banks is an all out war when the ASIC hardware mining vendors can no longer be paid by wire transfers. Watch for supply chain disruptions to the ASIC H/W vendors originating from the big banks. Watch for ITAR import restrictions....

    I saw first hand just how disruptive VoIP technology was with replacing the traditional Telecom Industry technologies associated with the ISO 7 Layer Model. Well, the FIRE (Financial, Insurance, Real Estate) Sector's equivalent of the ISO 7 Layer Model is John Exter's Prymid (see - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Exter), and its time for open source technology to keep the Big Banking Industry honest after effectively having Glass-Steagall axed before the turn of the millennium. -- another four to five paragraphs remain...

    Don't laugh but I compare Bitcoin to "The Force" and what Obey One said to Darth Vader. If you strike me down I become more powerful that you can ever imagine. It's true! The bitcoin can free us from the slavery we are all in fighting for a few more worthless dollars. The establishment is terrified of the Bitcoin and their silence speaks volumes. Find room for me at the meeting.
