    Paypal banning accounts of people selling bitcoin miners or anything related. wow

    Looks like they're crapping themselves. This is completely a business decision, they're abusing their position to stamp out competition.


    Just got this email from Paypal since I had in-hand actual Bitcoin miners for sale on eBay:


    Hello [name removed],
    We have reviewed your PayPal account and found that you are selling bitcoin mining machines. Per our current Acceptable Use Policy for Money Service Businesses, PayPal may not be used to operate a currency exchange, bureau de change or check cashing business including the sale of bitcoins, bitcoin mining units, and other related bitcoin products.
    To continue using your PayPal account, we need some additional information from you. Keep in mind that we have placed a limitation on your PayPal account, and this limitation will remain until we receive and review this information. Please provide us with the following:

    As much as I think Bitcoin is futticaca,

    Paypal or anything like them asking for personal information is even more futticacaious.

    Someone has to write laws about these Banks being used as policing agencies, the economy will completely die because of it.

    By acting like this, Paypal is actually demonstrating why BTC has value.

    With BTC no one can freeze your accounts, halt payments, or confiscate your money for any reason.

    You are in control. Not a bunch of douche bags in ivory towers.

    Paypal is the devil. There is no disguise presented, it's just straight up in your face fucking evil.
    Patience comes to those who wait.....calculate distance, drop, wind speed, relax and gently commit.

    Once the economist's neurons and dendrites are fully programmed (usually for life), economists serve as robotic broadcasting devices explicitly designed to hide the political nature of the economy from the public. In other words, the economist serves no function in society except to protect the ruling elites from public scrutiny while they loot the planet. Jay Hanson

    That was actually quicker than I thought. I figured Banks and Paypal would wait at least another year or so before they'd sever ties with people dealing in Bitcoins. They must be getting worried.

    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
    If this were to hold true then we are 3/4 of the way to the win. I somehow think it won't be quite that easy.
