Bitcoin, while elegant in theory, is blood money, tied cryptologically 
to all the criminal activities that contributed to it's shared 
value--with it's participants condoning that criminal activity by being 
compensated through accretive value by turning a blind eye to that very 
same criminal activity.

>> Hi all,
>> I'd like to invite you to the first virtual ZSF conference on Nov
>> 17th, 18:00h UTC ( 05:00h ZST). This meeting will start where the
>> Youtube presentation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QihIz59sfxY) ends
>> - it will mainly be a panel discussion of the Zero State Fund (ZSF).
>> A video of the event will be published via this webpage
>> (http://zerostate.net/ZSF.html) immediately after discussion has
>> finished, and an email thread will be created for discussion of
>> pledges on the main Zero State mailing list:
>> http://groups.google.com/group/DoctrineZero
>> Pledges are currently at $6,015 for options, $48,120 for shares. As
>> the minimum initial capital for a mutual fund in St.Kitts is $100,000,
>> we need at least $12,500 in pledges on options to reach that. But we
>> need to be a bit higher just to make sure.
>> Deadline for Pledges will be Nov 19, 24:00h ZST. If at this point we
>> have more than $15,000 in pledges, ZSF will happen, otherwise it will
>> be canceled and a chance for ZS to shape history will have passed
>> unused.
>> The Conference will take place in Openqwaq. Please get the client
>> software from:
>> http://qwaq.3dicc.com/client/
>> Please ask Eugen [eleitl at zerostate.net] for a login.
>> We'll meet at the teleXLR8 Main Conference Hall.
>> Thanks
