Hello dear readers!
I would like to understand my audience a bit better, to help me produce content you will find more relevant. Can you take 60 seconds of your time and fill out this super short survey?
Thanks – your help is appreciated.
Disclaimer – please do not view this post as an investment advice. Unlike previous similar posts, I am not evaluating Isracoin as an investment. I have no idea whether it’s a good one or not. I’m just posting for the “cool factor”.
I’ve been involved with the Isracoin project on and off for the last several months. Its goal is to create “an Israeli Bitcoin”, under the premise it can outpace Bitcoin in its adoption in Israel. It has good things going for it, and some negative things … I have my fair share of constructive criticism on how Dan manages the project. However, whatever else you can say – they reached a very important milestone.
Every Israeli Citizen is eligible to receive some Isracoins (ISR) today. Here is how you do it three simple steps:
- Pick a Isracoin wallet
- Approve the Facebook Application
- Enter your Israeli ID and your Isracoin address (you’ll find this in your wallet)
That’s it – it’s that simple.
Congrats to Dan on launching this phase, you deserve some kudos!
Can someone translate this blog post to Hebrew, and link to it in a comment?
This post isn’t related to Bitcoin, Programming, or the usual banter I have on this blog. If you don’t like it, stop right here.
Still here? Great. Now take ten minutes and go off and read the Coming Out of an Autist.
I think Coming Out, or Living Transparently, is an important step to accepting thyself. I encourage you all to be brave, remember that fear is the mind killer, confront your fears, and then talk about them openly. Jen, I salute you!

So .. Roger Ver, the Bitcoin Jesus, just got his (first?) death threat (http://tinyurl.com/rogerreply). I knew this day would come. He just posted an outstanding bounty of 37.6 BTC for whoever provides the authorities with information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the criminal making these threats. Roger, we are all with you, and I pray and hope nothing bad will happen to your or your family. I will also take this chance to post an identical preemptive bounty on myself:
MY BOUNTY FOLLOWS:
While this post is standing on my site - ripper234.com, I hereby offer an outstanding bounty of 37.6 BTC (currently about 25,000 USD) for whoever provides concrete evidence that will lead to the apprehension (by a ‘legal authority’), trial and conviction of any individual or group that make similar death threat or other criminal offence against me, my family, or my friends. I pray and hope such a day would never happen, and that this post always remain just a deterrent. I wish you all peace, love, and a wonderful day.
P.S As someone pointed out to me, this post actually incentives people to send me death threats if the value they attach to 37.6 BTC is greater than the penalty. The purpose of this post is to deter “real” death threats and serious crimes. So – I will amend the bounty conditions – the bounty will only be paid if I deem the death threat or crime “real”, and/or causing a monetary damage of at least 37.6 BTC. E.g., if someone actually plots to steal my scooter which is worth about 3K USD, and then an accomplice “reveals him”, I won’t pay 37.6 BTC for a 3K USD scooter. I hope you get my drift. I will be the final judge of “how real the criminal intent is”.
P.S.S Yes, the threat that Roger received might be a fake one. I don’t know, and I don’t want to find out whether a death threat I receive is real or not. As a public figure in the Bitcoin space, I want to make sure any such death threats are never made, and that bad people stay the fuck away. I realize that posting this post may be perceived as a taunt or drawing fire … but the truth of the matter is that I’m drawing enough fire as it is. I’m a public figure in the Bitcoin space, and I have had paranoias about similar threats targeting me for a while. This post is aimed at making sure these paranoias never become real. Some people would say this post actually serves the opposite purpose. I respectfully disagree. References:
Update – the best way I found to explain Circle is – “Circle is the first bank that fully integrates Bitcoin. They’re not quite an official bank yet, but they’re probablly going down that ‘upgrade path’.”
Circle.com is one of the most talked about Bitcoin startups, that were in stealth until yesterday. They raised 20-30 million USD in the last year, and now we finally know what they do:
Circle provides a Bitcoin wallet that:
- Has a beautiful, clean interface
- Is automatically secured with multisig, cold storage and 2-factor auth
- Is insured
- Has zero fees
- Is linked to credit cards for deposits and withdrawals
- And … is actually denominated in USD, not BTC.
Circle is positioning itself as sort of a cross between Coinbase and PayPal, more like the latter than the former. Your balance is always maintained in USD, and that is only converted to Bitcoin when it leaves the system. It’s Bitcoin without the volatility and security problems, pure and simple. The USD denomination is key – it is not a real Bitcoin wallet, because you cannot use that to speculate on Bitcoin price – if you deposit $100 worth of bitcoins into Circle, you will always have $100 there, regardless of any fluctuations on the Bitcoin price. I am excited to see their bold vision, and am looking forward to seeing the interplay between it and the Bitcoin ecosystem on the one hand, and the traditional players like PayPal on the other.

Everybody’s talking about “Viral marketing” and “viral videos”. This is a story of how viral marketing is done right.
Meetme.so is a great way to save scheduling time for busy people. If you want to schedule a meeting with me, head on to meetme.so/RonGross. This simple statement appears at the bottom of my signature, and I tell this to people who want to schedule meetings with me.
This simple idea – that you no longer need two people online at the same to schedule – and its succinct implementation – is spreading like wildfire, with a high vitality coefficient. No marketing. No ad campaigns. Just pure p2p spread – I don’t even try to convince anyone to use it, I just use it myself and demonstrate how it saves time for me.
People are adept at identifying “good shit”, and copying/using that whenever they can. Still waters run deep – such a strategy can work much better than pouring $500,000 into a marketing campaign. Good job MeetMe!
Oh – and thanks David Johnston for introducing me to Meetme – I’ve saved literally hours of my time thanks to this simple introduction.
