[Created after a comment by dstar80](http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/26jmk4/thinkgeekcom_is_not_for_geeks_if_they_dont_take/chrqhqi) Bitch about Bitcoin/Bitcoin-related services, let off that steam!
**BRASIL BITCOIN** Notícias, perguntas, descubra, denuncie. Tudo sobre **Bitcoin** aqui e no mundo. Bitcoin é a moeda da Internet: um dinheiro descentralizado e com alcance mundial. Diferente das moedas tradicionais como o dólar, os bitcoins são emitidos e gerenciados sem qualquer autoridade central que seja: não existe governo, empresa ou banco no comando do Bitcoin. Dessa forma ele é mais resistente a inflações selvagens e bancos corruptos. Com o Bitcoin, você pode ser seu próprio banco.
[Serious] Reddit, do you feel in the next decade or so that cryptocurrencys (such as bitcoin) will be so widespead that we could see a end to big banks or at the very least less of a influence? Why or why not?
Mike Hearn: It’s ludicrous that people are actually writing posts on reddit claiming that there is no crisis. People were criticizing my post yesterday on the grounds that I somehow overstated the seriousness of the situation. Do these people actually use the bitcoin network to send money everyday?
The issue is that it’s now officially impossible to depend upon the bitcoin network anymore to know when or if your payment will be transacted, because the congestion is so bad that even minor spikes in volume create dramatic changes in network conditions. To whom is it acceptable that one could wait either 60 minutes or 14 hours, chosen at random? It’s ludicrous that people are actually writing posts on reddit claiming that there is no crisis.

How serious are you about sponsoring a UFC fighter to increase awareness of Bitcoin? Based on the Reddit conversation this week, I talked to Joe Lauzon yesterday & he wants to talk more!
Members of this sub suggested sponsoring a UFC fighter to help promote Bitcoin and increase awareness. I thought Joe Lauzon was perfect and many agreed. I happen to have met him a few times from me being in the local amateur fighting circuit, he knows my coach, refereed one of my matches etc. so I contacted him. Good news! He's interested in speaking further. Nothing is confirmed or agreed on. Just wanted to see how serious people are and get an idea about what we might be able to raise or offer him. Sports are a great way to spread the word about something and have been used successfully in many types of marketing. UFC is a great fit because it's a fast growing sport with athletes who are more accessible than the NFL or NBA for example. Please don't send any money anywhere yet - if and when we agree on something with Joe, we will do a video with the keys etc. like Andreas did for the Dorian donation. Please do NOT trust anything unless it is from Joe directly or from me and also verified by Joe. Any future announcement on this will come from this Reddit account AND will contain a public address with link to video verification or will come from Joe in a manner that leaves no question as to authenticity such as video. EDIT: Thanks for the feedback -- if you say "I'm in" if there is a way to quantify that a bit more...whether you mean one millibit, 30 Bitcoin etc. it would be helpful to gauge
Living in a post-GPT-3 world: What will the consequences be?
As you have probably noticed, the recently published GPT-3 language model from OpenAI has captured the attention of this and some other communities and deservedly so: Another previously exclusive domain of human intellect, namely speech generation, has seemingly fallen. Sure, the text isn't always coherent and the semantics can be lacking, but consider that we have been working on this problem since the 60-70s; take ELIZA as an example. A lot of the work that later ended up in stuff like compilers was also about natural language generation and understanding. But, using the techniques from that time, language generation turned out to be more or less impossible; ELIZA was just a party trick. But now, AI has seemingly conquered this domain as well. Some people think that with some tweaks, such models can achieve human-like intelligence; GAI as a sequence-generation problem. I personally am not quite that optimistic (or pessimistic?), but let's consider the direct impact of GPT-like models on our society.
Spam, SEO and fraud: A very high fraction of texts generated are indistinguishable from low-effort human text; GPT-3 can basically write high-school essays. Spam has been a persistent problem for the internet since its inception; fraud and phishing are some of the most prevalent forms of cybercrime. SEO is slowly making the internet unusable. Automated SEO, spam, fraud and phishing might be a severe disruption to user-generated content on the internet. One of my bolder predictions is that we will see proof-of-work schemes like HashCash being used; these are the precursor to Bitcoin and were intended to solve the spam problem in the 90s by making e-mails have a small cost. CAPTCHAs are already something like that; we might have to solve a lot more of them in the future. Maybe you will have to pay 0.00005 cents to write internet comments. Or, alternatively, half of all the internet content might get written by a bot and we'll be none the wiser.
Political propaganda: A very common accusation on Reddit is to accuse ones debate opponent of being a political shill; for the CCP, the Russians, the Democrats, whatever. Internet comment section have certainly become a battleground for various state actors. Astroturfing refers to artificial grassroots movements; making people believe there is broad support for certain causes could certainly be a potent political tool. GPT-3 could help by auto-generating millions of plausible-seeming comments. It could generate normal, non-political comments as well, to make the account seem genuine. Lowering the costs of astroturfing might further inflame polarization; or it might lead to an abandonment of the internet as a political battleground, as there can be no trust that you are speaking to humans.

You can also contact customer support via email, or you can leave a public comment on a Bitcoin casino Reddit, Twitter, or Facebook page. This is a nice touch. The basic idea is that investors hype up (or "pump up") a certain bitcoin - that is usually an alternative coin that is very cheap but high risk - via investor's websites, blogs, or even Reddit There are other sites such as reddit that also list the software and most of the content there will be regarding the revolution of Bitcoin on the financial system. Reddit is a website known as the The government may try to outlaw Bitcoin. This wouldn’t be unheard of, but it would be difficult. Because of Bitcoin’s security and decentralisation, it’s very difficult to “catch people” using Bitcoin. The government could try to outlaw Bitcoin exchanges based in the US but people could simply use exchanges based elsewhere.
