There is an incredible thread on r/Bitcoin right now on how Bitcoin clearly isn’t catching on through its 1 documentary, so the cult should spread the ‘Coin to fiction. Specifically movies, or, to, be more specific, heist movies.
THIS IS THE BEST BITCOIN IDEA, EVER. They could do so many “Based on a True Story”-type movies, because Bitcoiners, as a community, have been scammed and stolen from countless times. I don’t even need to list examples like Mt. Gox or MintPal, just Google “Bitcoin Stolen”, and you get a list as long as long as pi.
A user on BitcoinTalk has posted a list of Bitcoin Heists since 2010. It was so big, they had to start a new thread due to character limits. Buisness Insider says based on the evidence presented by these lists (Which we’re going to assume is credible, since we’ve established these people don’t fuck around with their precious ‘Coin), over 818,485.77 BTC was stolen, estimated at $500+ Million Dollars.
By their estimates, that means 1 out of every 16-17 BTC is owned by someone who stole it.
Do you know what an awesome movie that could potentially be? The currency of the future: Stolen. Liam Neeson is: The Collector. Christmas 2014. Awesome.
How about a 300,000 bitcoin BIP38 private key embedded onto a $50,000 diamond?
