Bitcoin is Accepted as Legal Tender in Germany

#1 Unread post by tbird165 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 7:07 am

Germany’s finance ministry has recognized Bitcoin as legal tender in Germany, which is a highly popular virtual currency. While the intent is not for Bitcoin to compete against the Euro, the fact that it is being recognized as money is a huge step for the currency...

Paul, my friend, no need to scream and explain how this is a scam. Money in general is a scam since we place the value on it by accepting the terms of it's use and for payment, when it's not worth anything.

Sorry, I just don't want to feed these guys one single cent more.
When the un-knowing read these posts, go to a link or website, & cough up even $10, it's too much.
I don't remember how long ago it was, not too,....60 minutes had a 'in depth' piece on this. GENIUS SCAM!
Obviously that 'poster' is catching some small %age of the 'trail' he's on.

I have no idea what you're talking about. What $10? I can read all the posts and links to posts without paying one cent. Tony of Atlanta Gold and Coin buyers is an upstanding and honest person. He means no harm and is NOT party to a scam, trust me.

The bitcoin has a lot in common with monopoly money, they are both fantasy. Do not throw good money after this crap! It is a scam like Paul and Daniel say

I just had a fantastic idea:
How about the PAULYWALLY-BITBUCK?
How it works:
You send me your money...
I issue you a PWWBB Q-Pon (1)
You can use these for all your on-line purchases (2)
The benefits are many-fold. No messy piles of cash sitting around. No fear of robbery/theft. No fear of mis-placing your hoard of $100 bills. Extra room in your safe. The IRS can't seize it, 'cause "you ain't gotz it". Your mattress will no longer be lumpy. I can go on, but you get the idea. Just get that money out of the house!
The accepted form of payment for PWWBB's are; plain brown paper bags of US currency, US Postal money orders, & certified coinage.

(1) PWWBB value may only be 35% of actual cash value due to storage & handling.
(2) It is the responsibility of the PWWBB holder to determine if the on-line retailer accepts PWWBB's.

Funny Paul, but we already have that in the form of credit cards and digital transaction over the net. Of course, you don't get your cut of that.

Yes Daniel....but they send you those annoying bills every month, charge you interest, & have limits on them.
The PWWBB's have no bills, are completely interest FREE, & you can send me un-limited amounts of your money.....No problem!
It's a WIN-WIN scenario? (in my mind)

Hey Guys,

Sorry - I missed the comments on this post; otherwise, I would have responded sooner. I'm still waiting for Bitcoin to issue me my first commission check; they tell me that the check's in the mail. lol:

In all seriousness, I think that the introduction of alternative currencies can only be seen as a positive, as it provides individuals with other options outside of government issued currencies.

I personally think that Bitcoin is a bit too volatile, and don't own any shares. I prefer gold and silver as alternative currencies. In fact, I'm a proponent of going back to the gold standard.

Thanks,

Tony
