What is a Buttcoin?
Buttcoin is a peer-to-peer butt. Peer-to-peer means that no central authority issues new butts or tracks butts. These tasks are managed collectively by the network. It’s like a bitcoin, but with butts instead.
Why call it Buttcoin?
Because butts are funny. And it kinda sounds like Bitcoin.
So, then what is a Bitcoin?
Here’s a great post by someone in Bitcoin’s very own forum.
Bitcoin P2P Crypto-Commodity
OK, so Bitcoin is a medium of exchange. No one can question that. And it seems a very effective medium of exchange.
But is it a currency? Is it money, backed by a store of value to be redeemable from the issuer giving the issuer no option not to accept it to be redeemed? Or is it a secure accounting utility with a user allocated value due to market forces?
Can a Bitcoin site (bitcoin.org) decide individually whether to call Bitcoin a currency or not – because it has a decentralized nature?
Can a Bitcoin site (mtgox.com) decide individually whether to call Bitcoin an internet commodity or not – because it has a decentralized nature?
Can every Bitcoin holder, merchant, trader, etc. decide individually how they interpret Bitcoins?
Does Bitcoin allow for modern day barter transactions between the fairly secure Bitcoin Accounting Utility and a good/service?
See this legal ideas with regards to barter exchange as opposed to virtual currency (Scroll down to the end to Matthew C ‘s answer):
Can Bitcoin be interpreted as an internet utility which can be bartered for any number of goods/services/other?
Is bitcoin.org ‘s blatant misrepresentation of Bitcoin not misleading?
“P2P Virtual Currency
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer currency. Peer-to-peer means that no central authority issues new money or tracks transactions. These tasks are managed collectively by the network.”
“… no central authority … tracks transactions … ” – Can anyone not track transactions on the blockchain (provided Bitcoin was not laundered – and laundering Bitcoin would be illegal)?
P2P Virtual Currency – Does a currency not require a store of value backing it?
Does Bitcoin’s only value derive from its secure, transferable utility value as an internet commodity described by MtGox? Have we bought an internet commodity that we are bartering for goods/services/other as a medium of exchange? Or have we been issued a virtual currency with a backed store of value – to be redeemed, without option not to accept, from the backing entity on demand?
Would “P2P Crypto Accounting Utility” not be a more aptly description? Would it not be less incriminating to bitcoin.org ‘s author who identifies his Bitcoins as currency – even though it is not backed, or redeemable from an entity, without option not to accept?
And the answer to all those questions is “no”. Therefore all Bitcoins are Buttcoins.
That’s a whole lotta words I’m not going to read, do you have an infograph for me to stare at and furrow my brow in a vain attempt to understand what you’re trying to say?
I hear what you’re saying, but I’d really like to invest in
Great, then check out my page called “Why should I invest in bitcoins?“

Uhh, and how is this different than the american dollar? Oh that’s right it’s not, except that they can print as many dollars as they want, where as there’s a cap to bit coins and the number generated is proportional to the communities processing power.
June 15, 2011 @ 7:26 am
I would have to say a nearly $15,000,000,000,000 economy backing it could be something going for the USD.
Inflation is a good thing for economies BTW, keeps people from hoarding money and actually spend it (which seems to be a major issue in the bitcoin economy. Everyone’s mining, no one’s spending.).
January 8, 2013 @ 3:13 am
No, inflation just steers people away from that currency and into others not affected – like gold, for instance.
July 2, 2013 @ 11:33 am
1) On the contrary, Gold can be subject to both wild inflation and deflation. It is unstable due to its finite nature, its ability to be mined, and its difficulty as a easy medium of exchange in a modern economy. Worse yet, it is starting to be physically removed in small due to its use in many manufacturing processes where its not practical to get it back via recycling (e.g. many electronics).
2) Runaway inflation steers people away from a currency. Inflation itself, in small amounts, is desirable. As Mr. Buttcoin alluded to there, the purpose of money is to facilitate transactions, not to make whoever happens to be holding onto it rich.
3) There’s also the point that no inflation often means the economy is stagnant. More people with money spending tends to drive up the general cost of goods a bit (inflation), which is actually indicative of a healthy economy. Again, runaway inflation==bad. Some inflation, actually can be be good.
June 29, 2011 @ 2:38 am
So basically you’re saying its an inherently deflationary currency, giving bitcoin holders no incentive to actually spend their fake internet play money.
September 10, 2011 @ 11:31 pm
Dollars are backed by the force of a gun, to phrase it in a particularly libertarian way. You have to use dollars to pay taxes, the government requires lenders to accept dollars as payment, so the government backs dollars in many different ways, just not by the direct method of shoving a bunch of gold in a vault.
March 4, 2013 @ 3:08 am
So basically it turns out that a currency backed not by coercion but by voluntary trade is much stronger and valuable. The only reason the dollar is backed by violence is that some people feel they have a right to purchasing stuff even though they don’t produce anything and that the only way they can full fill this wet dream is by forcing the people who produce to use a specific currency. I have a big surprise to you: If the producers had free choice what currency they could sell their produce in they would not chose USD. They would chose a currency free of coercion. Which is exactly why bitcoin is exploding, all sorts of trade and work is nominated in bitcoins and it grows every day. Just like the internet revolutionized communication bitcoins will revolutionize finance. The main reason the internet have been so insanely successful and has grown so fast is because it is literally without any rules or regulation. Bitcoins are the exact same thing for finance. In just two years we have seen a reinvention of forex, stock exchange, futures marked and whatnot done by nerds without filling out a single form. I would prefer anarchy over statism, it is clearly less violent and better organized. There is a major incentive from every productive individual in society to use peaceful currencies.
June 20, 2011 @ 4:01 am
Oh you mean $55,000,000,000,000 that the United States is in debt with? Good thinking. Inflation may be a good thing, but not at the rate that it’s at in the United States.
July 10, 2011 @ 12:41 am
Suddenly I’m reminded of that episode of South Park where the boys are trying to raise internet money to pay off Canada.
I wonder how much funnier that ep would have been if the internet dollars were changed to bitcoins.
July 10, 2011 @ 1:18 am

January 30, 2013 @ 8:40 am
It’s my site. I have no use for Bitcoins, I’m all stocked up on beef jerkey and dried strawberries or whatever crap I can buy with them. If you want to send me a sack of gold ol’ American USD or even some McDonald’s gift cards I’ll take that.
January 31, 2013 @ 1:38 pm
“send me a sack of gold ol’ American USD”
— Wait, you want a sack of gold or a sack of good ol’ American USD? I guess either one should be fine…
So, what’s your address? I need it so I can send the sack of USD to you. Now, if you’re concerned that some bozo might see your address and send you a sack of shit, then I’d recommend setting up a bitcoin wallet or an MtGox account, then give me the bitcoin address so I can send you some bitcoins without having to worry about shit. You can sell those bitcoins on MtGox and get some good ol’ American USD for them, it’s totally cool! Just think about it: I send you buttcoins and you get good ol’ American USD!!! AMAZING!

Here in China there is something called Hell Money. It’s paper bills, “ingots”, etc., which you buy, then burn on certain holidays, to give your dead relatives some spending money in the after-life. The bills are fun, they have Yama King of the Dead’s “portrait” on one side, in imperial robes, and on the other the words BANK OF HELL. Best of all, it’s bad luck to keep in the house, so you can send it to your enemies (like Pat Robertson) and they are not only horribly insulted but get bad luck, too!

Are buttcoins similar to ass pennies? What’s the conversion rates? I gotta get rid of these ass pennies.

On the contrary JohnBill, what makes Ass penies powerful is that they are in another mans hand. Unlike Bitcoins, you gotta spend them.
And you cant put a bitcoin up your ass. They will never be powerful.

Seem to work exactly the same: buy,spam,sell. Apart from one going in the spambox and the other making me stabby.

I’d take it more seriously if there were not a billion ads around the website. Good call trolling people into trolling and the internet to get angry, thus fueling traffic, leading to more ad revenue. You should also accept bitcoins. For lulz.
May 9, 2013 @ 8:35 pm
There are exactly 3 ads on this entire website and I earned a cool 43 cents today in ad revenue, not even covering the cost of the domain and hosting. But hey, why should anyone get compensated for their work right? I could just mine me some free money from thin air!
May 12, 2013 @ 7:03 am
Good luck buying an asic with “free money.” 43 cents sounds like crap. But hey, if you had .43 btc that would buy you a dennys breakfast worth of meals. Just sell it at the right time of day. You are of course entitled to your opinion. I got a good chuckle, good luck striking it rich with the ads (I really do wish you prosperity over dying in a corner shivering, whatever gets you there.)
January 1, 2014 @ 4:03 pm
“I could just mine me some free money from thin air!” It’s not really as easy as you seem to think.
Bitcoin mining involves real risk and probably won’t make you much money. Attempting to mine with your CPU or GPU wouldn’t cover electricity costs. Even with an ASIC, you might never make your RoI. (Initial investment on ASICs, by the way, should be measured in BTC. If you meet RoI in USD, but not BTC, you won off of speculation, not mining.)
And if you’re thinking you can have your miner tack on a few zeroes to the mining reward, think again. That block would be immediately rejeted by everyone else.

Grow our own food. No more bowing down to our corporate masters and begging for their scraps. No more cowering in fear of fascist police violence. No more perpetual war and killing and raping children. We can feed ourselves, get our own electricity, defend ourselves with guns, as long as we have bitcoin!!! We can get on with the business of burning down this fucking planet as free people, not slaves.

bitch if it sounds too good to be true dont do it
November 30, 2013 @ 4:13 am
If there really is an international banking cabal that controls all commerce on planet Earth, then I doubt Bitcoin will stop them. Bitcoin like anything else is only worth someone’s willingness to accept it as a medium of exchange. Can’t pay taxes with it, so you’ll have to convert it if you want to keep your property, which still keeps sovereign currencies relevant. Plus, banks have merchants in the palms of their hands with VISA/MC/Discover/AMEX – and they can easily incentivize most retailers to refuse Bitcoins.
Besides it should tell you something when the Bitcoin billionaires cash out for real dollars, and it takes real dollars to buy Bitcoins – kind of like people trying to sell me gold because my dollars are worthless, yet they want to give me all that “valuable” gold for these “worthless” dollars….umm, OK, right.
It just seems like a bunch of children raised in the fantasy worlds of video games wanting so badly to bend physics in the real world too, so this is the kind of shit you get when everyone is praised for mediocrity and gets a trophy for showing up. Who knows? Who fucking cares? I have enough real money.

This site is awesome. Here’s my take on why Bitcoin is a joke. Anonymous digits are not trustworthy as currency. Crypto-currencies invite criminality online and don’t work in the real economy. Wake up, fellow nerds. http://alfidicapitalblog.blogspot.com/2013/12/the-serious-disadvantages-of-bitcoin.html
December 31, 2013 @ 12:06 am
“Crypto-currencies invite criminality online and don’t work in the real economy.”
Says who? You?
My friend, function is dictated by the market, not by your emotional misgivings. If there’s supply and demand for Bitcoins, and it’s being successfully used to buy and sell goods and services (which is happening more every month), it “works.”
December 31, 2013 @ 12:16 am
Please tell me any popular, mainstream sites that accept Bitcoins as payment and have any type of meaningful revenue with them. BitPay doesn’t count, I’m talking actually accepting Bitcoins themselves.
January 5, 2014 @ 9:08 pm
Maybe *you* should list an example of any popular, mainstream websites that accept dollars. PayPal, Swipe, credit card, and banks don’t count; I’m talking about accepting the paper dollars themselves. And don’t forget that it has to be a website!
January 5, 2014 @ 9:59 pm
Wait, why does it have to be paper currency? Why are you completely ignoring the entire credit and debit card industry.
Credit, Debit and Dollars are all a representation of USD. They are all accepted as a valid currency backed by the United States government no matter the payment method.
Bitcoin is supposed to the be the currency of the future. Not pegged to any currency. Not an investment vehicle. Supposed to free us from the shackles of the banksters and the corruptions of the world..
Except every single news story about “X company takes bitcoin!” is just a company who takes bitcoin through an intermediary and immediately converts it to USD. No company wants to take part of your bitcoin economy.
April 12, 2014 @ 5:21 pm
I think that if the bitcoin has been even mentioned on the forbes website, it has a value in the outlook for the future.
January 12, 2014 @ 9:22 pm
Tell that to the banks first (credit card, paying bills online or at atms, etc…) then get back to me.

Does anyone mind elaborating on the point about bitcoin being for “people who know nothing about math” (from the infographic)? The author fails to do so, and digital signatures and hashing algorithms are based on well-established sound mathematical concepts.
February 15, 2014 @ 3:37 pm
Defacating is also based on sound mathematical concepts or it wouldn’t work right. He’s not saying the math doesn’t work, he’s saying it doesn’t offer any reason for the existence of bitcoin, all of these things can be done using standard currencies much better.

We cant manipulate the real stock market without being thrown in the slammer faster than a cat can lick its but, so lets create one out of thin air ðŸ™‚
I invite all of you to study the stock markets of the 20’s and before. Pay particular attention to these terms.
and short selling.
oh and syndicate, trading pools, and insider trading.
The SEC exists for a reason. If you look at the numbers and recent events, you can see evidence of the above. I think when its over at the end of the day, there will be a lot of pistols in mouths. Never invest more than you can afford to lose. Know also when its time to quit while you are ahead. It’s all a gamble anyway, as is much of life.
Treat it as a high risk investment. You play the game you assume the risks, but if you are slick, you just might reap some reward.
Personally, If I had the windfall of getting a bitcoin, I would cash it in for USD on the first good uptick, as it really would’ve cost me nothing anyway. Nothing that makes something is an interesting concept ðŸ™‚ What are they going for now, $490 US? Let some other sucker buy em’ and end up holding the bag.
