The Inside Man episode on Bitcoin Mega-Thread

http://youtu.be/uLxhI81Flvk
Morgan Spurlock's episode of "Inside Man" featuring Bitcoin is airing tonight. I imagine there will be a bunch of new people here looking for information. I'll update this thread with relevant information - but here's the answer to the big question:
Where can I get a few bitcoins? You'll probably want to check out coinbase or circle to buy some, but for now you can probably get a few bits by following this link to /freebits. You should receive about 100 bits (About $0.02 USD) in a couple hours. It's not much, but it does allow you to join the experience.
You don't have to know everything about bitcoin to get your foot in the door, but if you're the technical type, this 8-page white paper by S. Nakamoto describes bitcoin: https://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf
Do you learn best from video? Check our /bitcointv
Interested in a book? Andreas Antonopolous made an appearance in Inside Man tonight - you can buy his book, Mastering Bitcoin, from Amazon or read it for free online. (Caution: This is a technical book, best for those with some experience programming.)
Please don't miss the great sticky post at the top of /bitcoin. It will literally answer 90% of the questions you might have. (Thanks BashCo)
There's one other note I'd like to share: When you get started, you'll probably receive a few bits on changetip.com or you'll buy them from one of the exchanges. This is a great start - but your bitcoins aren't fully secured unless you hold them in a wallet that you manage. Some examples are the greenaddress wallet (on all popular platforms), the mycelium wallet (available on Android and iOS) and breadwallet (specifically for iOS).
Please feel free to ask any questions below - we'll do our best to provide solid answers!

Bitcoin transaction fees do not directly correlate with market cap.

Yo guys... I'm confused as fuck... I don't understand why Bitcoins transaction fees are not directly correlated with BTC price. Are they determined by volume perhaps? I mean if you look at the transaction price it's generally correlated with price, but for instance, the current transaction fee is about the same as it was in January 2017 while the market cap is way higher.
Also, looking at posts and videos from early/mid last year, such as Morgan Spurlock's 'the inside man' and endless others, they all talk about how BTC is/was going to save money on transaction fees compared to banks. This claim now is preposterous... The transaction fees are oft times exorbitant, making anything less than a $100 transaction charity to miners.
Thoughts? Plz don't roast me, I really did research this a fair bit b4 coming here. Thanks in advance

explicacion del video anterior: [SPOILER]Todo lo hace en la testchain de Bitcoin. Abre un canal con 0'04 testcoins y efectua el pago de 10000 milisatoshis para comprar la ya famosa imagen de los gatitos viendo la luna.
No hay transacción de vuelta, es símplemente un pago que se ha realizado a través del canal que habían abierto.
En la blockchain (en realidad, en la testchain, puesto que se está utilizando la cadena de bloques para pruebas que tiene Bitcoin) se ha realizado una transacción, que es la transacción necesaria que hay que hacer para establecer el canal.
La transacción de compra de la imagen (la de los 10000 milisatoshis) es la que se hace fuera de la cadena de bloques.
A ver, el canal se establece por un importe de 0'04 bitcoins (testcoins, en realidad). Una vez realizada la transacción de 10000 milibitcoins en la lightning network, el balance de ese canal cambia a 0'04 bitcoins - 10000 milibitcoins.
Pero lo bueno del asunto es que el canal de pagos es bidireccional y, se supone, que formará parte de una red (la lightning network) de manera que el balance se irá reajustando conforme las transacciones de la red vayan necesitando hacer uso de dicho del canal de pago que has abierto.
Cuando cualquiera de las dos partes decida cerrar el canal, entonces el balance que contenga en ese instante será el que se fijará en la cadena de bloques.
Las transacciones que emplean el canal de pago son "off blockchain", esto es, se realizan sin necesidad de ser reflejadas en la cadena de bloques. La única transacción que ha necesitado utilizar la cadena de bloques es la necesaria para crear el canal.
El canal no se ha cerrado, ha permanecido abierto.[/SPOILER] P.D 3:

Thoughts from the CNN Inside Man show with Morgan Spurlock

If you are lucky enough to be watching the Morgan Spurlock Bitcoin episode of Inside Man on CNN please tell me what you thought / think ;0)
Edit: I'm a cable cutter so I don't have TV :(
submitted by OurEverydayEarth to BitTippers [link] [comments]

Putting together a merchant how-to 'one-pager' and USB stick resource guide.

I recently moved to a new area and have been visiting my local grocery store pretty much every day to buy some of the basics. There's no ATM nearby so I end up using my debit card which incurs a 50p Visa or £1 Mastercard charge each time I do so. The shopkeeper is very apologetic about it and usually launches into a big speech about how much he hates banks for fucking him and his customers like this.
I've been subtly suggesting bitcoin to him every time he goes into his tirade "So do you accept bitcoin yet?" and he's slowly beginning to bite after initially laughing the idea off and giving me a 'WTF' look.
I and the shopkeeper were talking about bitcoin again earlier today and the dude next to me in the shop queue chirps up saying: "You should seriously think twice about doing this unless you want volatility to fuck you."
At which point I mention BitPay "Oh well that's another discussion for another day." Says negative Nancy. Not really I say but of course I don't have time to go into the full details. The shopkeeper is left unsure who or what to believe (after-all I probably sound like some kind of snakeoil sales rep talking about magical fee-less money transactions).
It strikes me that there's a lot of conflicting bullshit out there and that, although it's encouraging to know a complete randomer in the queue knows about bitcoin, the FUDsters are currently dominating the convo among the 'average man (and merchant) on the street'.
Which brings me to my main point:
It would be kind of nice, I think, to simply hand the shopkeeper a USB stick with a bunch of Youtube videos and PDF's explaining what bitcoin is and how to get started, how to avoid volatility and so forth, along with a simple one-page printout gently introducing the concept.
Any ideas for what to include would be much appreciated, I think everything from basic how to's to documentaries such as the Morgan Spurlock Inside Man special could be included on the USB stick.
If we get something nice together, I'll do all the downloading and provide everything in a zip for others that might want to follow suit.
