Not sure if this is appropriate for this forum, and mods, feel free to remove thread if desired. Nonetheless, felt like offering my expertise regarding Bitcoin technicalities to anyone seeking it. Regarding the politics, promotion, marketing, price projections, and so on, I have no idea. You can ask 200 different people about that, and get 200 different answers. However, when it comes to the technicalities of implementing bitcoin, and the security of your funds, I'm probably one of the best to talk to. I've been at it for 3 years now, first year was basically a self-imposed internship while I became well versed in both the protocol and online security in general. In 3 years, I have yet to have a single dollar stolen from me personally. However, during the first year while I was knew, some clients did get hacked to hell and back, hence I quickly became well versed in online security. No clients have funds stolen these days. Nonetheless, if anyone by chance has any questions, feel free to ask, and I'll do my best to answer. If you do get into bitcoin, please realize that's it's a different playground than you're used to. Hacking your Wordpress sites and switching out things like affiliate URLs is cute and all, but that's nothing compared to what you will face in the bitcoin space. The hackers in this space are highly intelligent, ambitious, and plentiful.
