Hi Larry (aka [http://canonizer.com/support_list.asp?nick_name_id=310 xandari]), Welcome to the price of Bitcoin survey topic! Thanks for the support. Feel free to introduce yourself on this thread so we can know who you are and understand what kind of Bitcoin expert you are. Oh, and another question I have is when do you think we will first hit $1000/BTC?

Hi Swappermail, Very interesting. I've got a bunch of questions about this. What are "Drupal 7 themers"? Very interesting article about [http://swappermall.com/node/5 What do Bitcoins have to do with the IMF?] Could you tell me how attacks on weak nations currencies take place, as I'm not familiar with this possibility and how the IMF could intervene? I know the US, and most of the world is attacking Iran's currency. Is it similar to this? It says: "Transition to a non-inflationary official national Bitcoin usage by a country could prove to be extremely advantageous for first nation adopters." I could see some ways in which this could be advantageous, such as simply the more any country get's in before Bitcoins inflate too much, could increase the wealth of that nation. But I also see significant possible negatives for a country. For example, Japan's economy has been decimated, for the last 10+ years, because it's currency has inflated in value, instead of deflated, like the rest of the world. They are finally only now recovering, after they are deflating the value of their currency. You mentioned "Thousand fold" increases, should the IMF start to hold Bitcoins to help protect member nations, and "Million Fold" increases, should it encourage the entire world to adopt Bitcoin is it's currency. Do you realize that "thousand fold increases" make the market cap of Bitcoins more than the Market Cap of all the gold in the world, and the "Million Fold Increases" make Bitcoin Market Valuations start to approach the value of all real estate, in the world? That almost seems tooo aggressive of a prediction to me. Did you just pull these numbers out of the air, or do you have some solid quantitative rational behind them? Also, I'm interested in more of what you can do and what you have planned for swapper mail.

Brent, Thanks for your kind words and your role in canonizer.com. I'm not sure if I found out about this website through twitter or bitcointalk, but I'm glad I found out about this website. I remember reading "Wisdom of the Crowd" and I like the idea of organizing camps on topics such as Bitcoin and alternative currencies. I'm currently involved in http://swappermall.com, which is being designed to be the go to website for the social network/collaboration needs of local Bitcoin users/entrepeneurs/swappers. Drupal 7 themers and developers who would like to get in on the ground floor are invited to contact me about pushing this concept to the next level.

Welcome [http://canonizer.com/support_list.asp?nick_name_id=307 Kipp Watson] (AKA SwapperMall), Thanks for contributing to the crypto currency survey project, especially the great new camp statement you provided for the emerging expert consensus [http://canonizer.com/topic.asp/154/6 $1000/BTC] camp currently in review. (Note: anyone can see the statement before it goes live next week, by selecting the "Include Review" option on the side bar) Feel free to include a post to this "Welcome new Supporters" thread, introducing yourself. We're always interested in how you heard about this survey. It's so great that you were able to figure out the canonization process, so fast, already making significant contributions, with no help. It seems that most people fail to get it, even after many hours of coaching.

Hi Dawie, Interesting. Thanks for the info. Thanks for picking things up, and figuring out how to use things. You obviously get it way better and faster than most. I added a section to the Law of Bitcion camp about risks and debts. I hope it is to your liking. How about you change the parent of your $10,000/BTC camp to this Law of Bitcoin camp. Also, till we hit a $1000 valuation, we would like to focus all expert predictions around when that valuation will be achieved. Then we will use how well people made this prediction to determine how well we can trust them to accurately predict when we will reach the $10,000 level, and so on. So would you mind changing your camp to be something like possibly "$1000/BTC in 2014" or something? Very glad to make your acquaintance! Brent Allsop

Hi Brent I stumbled across this interesting project during my liberating discovery of Bitcoins lately. I am an industrial engineer from South Africa. I am also a fond follower of Max Keizer's shows on RT.com I agree with the predictions under Crypto Coin Law in principle. I would be happy to join your camp for consensus sake. I just found the site a bit tricky to navigate. I am sure I will learn as I get more familiar. You can merge is as you've suggested. Glad to be joining in. Regards Dawie Poolman

Hi Dawie, Thanks for your great contribution to the survey project! Would you mind providing some more information about who you are? I'm sure interested. I really like, and agree with what you are saying. Also, Canonizer.com is all about building as much consensus as possible, rather than everyone creating their own lonely camps. (That's what is required for lots of people to communicate, concisely and quantitatively.) Also, since your camp is competing with the Crypto Coin Law camp, it appears that you disagree with what it contains? Do you really disagree with it? I bet we can merge the World Debt camp with the Crypto Coin Law camp. Towards this end, if we added something like the below, to the Crypto Coin Law camp, would that be enough to get you to merge with / join our camp? Upwards, Brent Allsop ================================ == World Indebtedness == See wikipedia for a good description of this problem: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_debt . These types of risks are expounded upon in sights like this: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-07-05/opportunity-squandered-we-blew-it . All such risks to currencies and economies amplify the chances of the leading crypto currencies will continue to increase in value exponentially.
