You think KU was involved in the initial findings and no one had mentioned it yet? Get serious bro. They got nothing on the GOAT.

Why didn't they just buy it on an exchange? (maybe a dumb question, I don't understand "things in general")
As thera said, a lot of the exchanges have limits for various levels of verification and can sometimes take a little while even then. I have a $15k/week limit on Coinbase for instance, and I've submitted a good bit of documentation...I put in an order to buy BTC from them on Monday, but I won't get it until Saturday. As time was of the essence in their case and they needed it over a weekend, they opted to pay a premium.

My understanding is that some ransomwares don't have any intention or ability to give you your data back. Paying them off seems kinda silly unless you legitimately were totally unprepared and have no backups. In which case, I guess it's your best bet.
That was my concern when hearing the story, but they apparently got their data back. They had screwed up on back-ups.

Story's here:

What the **** are you doing with that much bitcoin though.
Also as thera said, I got into Bitcoin years ago because it seemed like another reasonable avenue for playing poker online, and it has been. Got fortunate with the timing. I actually only had around 3btc, which is another reason I initially declined, but I had positions in about a dozen others that all added up to the remainder...took quite a few hours to put them all back into BTC.

Colby gambles with it in place of dollars. It just gets converted when you play USD tournies. And BTC only shot up relatively recently. Shit, I think I ran up like 7 coins just in their casino, but I cashed it out for like 3k. Woops!

We had a municipality around here get in a similar situation a couple years ago, and they paid. You gotta realize how small-time most local government is.
I plays on Seals too...which is Bitcoin only. And yeah, at one brief point back when it was like $20, I had 90. =/

They really should tell us when weíre kids how soul crushing it is to go into work every day for the rest of your life. The idea of doing this for another 40 years is almost enough to pull a Dexter and drive my boat straight into the storm.

i've thought a lot about it, and my fear is that i will tire of the 1500 dollar watch in basically the same amount of time as i would the 250 watch. i'd have to go up to an omega or beyond to really get into it and i dont want to do that yet.

I am too careless with my watches to ever get an expensive one. I hit doorways walls etc. with my watch pretty often.

Won my fantasy baseball league. Feels good, riding Cody Bellinger all season after I drafted him.

Joining a startup auction fantasy basketball league with a live auction in a couple weeks. $100 buy in. Will be my first auction draft. Looking forward to it.
