The problem with this question is that it is not clear what is meant by having two fries together like that.

If it is simply addition, why don't they use the plus sign like the rest of the additions? If it is multiplication, as is usually the case when two variables are written together, then the value of a single fry would be the square root of two - an irrational number. It could even be razed to a power, since one fry is lifter above the other. But even an algebra calculator I found can't solve x^x=2. I was able to ballpark it to about 1.5599. So...

> If the Double Fry means:

Addition: 15
Multiplication: 19.142136...
Exponentiation: 20.599...

Hiro's probably doing this to avoid paying taxes / fees on payments received. After all the government can't touch currency that isn't officially recognized by any one country.

He's pretty much shooting himself in the foot. Bitcoin will never be a standard, no matter how much the inner-circle wants to jerk themselves off over these virtual wacky bux.
>>

It's more likely he got cut off by the payment processors, like stripe.

Whose credit card got stolen? This sounds like bullshit. If this had really happened, I guarantee you there would be a huge stink made over it. EVERYONE would be shit talking hiro if it were found out just one person's credit card number got stolen after having bought a pass.
>>
>>86484
>Hiro's probably doing this to avoid paying taxes / fees
I sure hope Hiro's not that fucking stupid. What little money he might save in taxes/fees would be lost with the drop of people opting not to buy $20 worth of passes in the first place because of hesitation to purchase cryptocurrency.
>>
>>86500
yeah I don't think hiro is that much retarded.
I simply think they had a problem with whatever payment gateway they were using and now they're finding a new one.
May take a while since not everyone would be ok with accepting 4chan, and at the same time you can't say fuck it and use the most ignorant gateways because they ask for bigger fees and hiro wouldn't want that.

Alright so I just tried to buy some bitcoin and coinbase wants me to send them my damn driver's licence to verify my identity before I can buy.

So then I try another site and my credit card is declined by my bank because it doesn't allow its clients to purchase bitcoin...alright. Lite coin seems to work but now it's asking me for a wallet. I get a new wallet but before it works I need to download every fucking transaction in the last 7 fucking years and it's 20 fuckin gigs.

Paypal delisted 4chan back in 2016. Nobody trusts any alternative credit card payment system. Also, it's 1000x more profitable to get a fraction of the highest-priced cryptos than it is to get any amount of fiat currency.

So that begs the question, is Hiro more interested in helping the 4chan community or making money? Because that sounds like someone who's more interests in a financial pursuit.

Find and meet someone willing to trade a paper slip with the private key to a wallet (or transfer a certain amount to your wallet's address) for cash in person.
Alternatively, find some cryptocurrency exchange which is lax on enforcing KYC regulations and get your coins out of there before it implodes.

Yes, both options completely suck compared to a virtual/prepaid credit card, but it's possible.

Hiro is well aware. It has been rumored another, if not the biggest reason behind the 4channel split was to find a payment provider that's willing to process purchases of 4channel passes, which conveniently also work on 4chan. We already had scummy ads before.

Mine expires on the 29th. He should work his ass off because keeping paying customers is easier than gaining new ones. I had a pass for several years but if it expires I don't think I will bother to renew it ever.I used this site for almost a decade without a pass, if I lose it I will realize I never got anything meaningful for it. Changes go through regardless of my opinion, my donation is nothing compared to the everyday costs and the only real advantage is captcha but I don't even post that much.

You have to trade for bitcoins at a market, and usually the seller requires you to post some sort of id before you make the transaction.
>>
Major Protip: you can buy Bitcoin from local exchanges or Bitcoin ATMs. No ID or personal info required, just show up with cash or pay with card.

Or you can just mine shitcoins. My GTX 1060 was pulling about $5 worth of Eth per day. 1 week of mining is $30 which enough to buy a pass and have $10 leftover for alcohol or weed.

I've always paid it with bitcoins. I don't see the problem. It's not hard to buy crypto at all once you set up an account on any legit crypto trading site, and that's a one time thing.

I have a debit card which I can use normally as well as convert my cash to and from crypto. It works everywhere in the world and it has lower exchange rates for other fiat currencies (yen/euro/usd/gbp) than any bank.
It was pretty useful when I went to japan.

You have to face it anons, fiat is the devil's work and you will never be in control of your money unless you use crypto.

Evidently 4chan got banned by paypal and whatever CC processor they used, or they afraid that might happen.
Even if it didn't happen yet it's gonna happen eventually. And then you're just shit out of luck. They can lock you out of the financial system if they want, and the only way to escape this is cryptocurrency.
Just get a crypto debit card like I did >>88923 and stop using your bank account when you can avoid it.
You can still keep your money as fiat on the card's account if you don't trust crypto, and use it as a normal debit card, but with the option to move to crypto at any time and transfer your money anywhere that way.

No site is allowed to sell you bitcoin without having all the KYC information. It's the law.
Your information is still to be treated according to strict regulations though. It's not facebook. Any investment broker will have to ask for the same documents.
If you want to bypass this you can use LocalBitcoins and pay in cash.
>>
>>88924
Not buying a pass is an option, too. ;)
>>
>>88967
Yes, it's an option. The objectively inferior option that is. You can choose to remain without cryptocurrency and without a pass if you want. You can choose to remain without anything at the end of this, but it's only going to hurt you.
>>
>>88925
>use LocalBitcoins and pay in cash
This is what I did, going through paypal. You get a pretty bad conversion rate so prepare to spend $30 to get $20, but no huge corporate entity knows what my face looks like in exchange.
>>
>>88976
Nothing against using localbitcoins, but why do you care? This isn't some social network site that can spy on you and associate all your activity to your profile.
I would bet that anyone in this thread who isn't underage has a bank account, and they know just as much about you, if not more. This isn't really any different from that.
>>
>>86217
I had to create a fucking account with coinbase since its apparently the quickest method for people without any bit wallet, then had to still create a fucking wallet with them, verify all my real information like address, last 4 of my social. Finally get this, get $20 of bitcoin to send, it charges $1.50 so I spend $21.50 to get the fucking $20 I need, then to send the money, I had to verify by uploading my goddamn drivers license front and back via pictures, be verified, go to send the fucking money, then get hit AGAIN with a fee to send the money. Buy an additional amount of fagbits which hit me with another $1.50, bringing me up to $23, then sending the $20 for the pass which, with that fee, brought me to $24.50.
If your pass is up, don't fucking bother. I've already called 9 credit card/debit processors and all of them don't have a problem with processing for this site. What all this is about is Hiro is dumping the processing fees off on us. Buy a pass for $20, the company takes an agreed amount (its cheap enough, someone didn't bother to shop around) and the customer has an easy and quick purchase. Not anymore. Users eat the processing costs, and Hiro gets his little gambling fund for Bitcoin roulette.
>>
>>88977
>but why do you care?
Honestly it's more about the principle than anything else. With real banks and financial institutions I've had to provide my SSN instead of a photo of my driver's license, sure, and I also know that in reality the "real" financial institutions have utter shit for security in their IT infrastructure...
But at the same time, I can walk into a grocery store with cash, buy a prepaid gift card and have otherwise used it for a pass. I wanted to stay as close to that level of anonymity as possible - so why let some other entity know everything about me for something I only need $20 from and only once a year?
>>
>>88986
>But at the same time, I can walk into a grocery store with cash,
Yes, cash is great for anonymity. I use it all the time.
But cash is only useful for physical stores, and the anonymity is limited by the fact that you still have to withdraw from your bank, and the exchange is physical and can be recorded.
But the latter problems are beside the point. Cryptocurrency can give you that anonymity online. You might have to buy it from Coinbase, but you can easily exchange it for untreaceable crypto and then back, without actually losing almost any money from it, and then you have the same anonymity as buying it from local bitcoins.

I'm not saying KYC procedures don't bother me, actually I don't think we should be forced to do that, it's a silly regulation.

All I'm saying is that in practice especially for someone who is just buying crypto, it shouldn't really make such a difference, since Coinbase probably does have better security than your average bank, whose systems are much older, and since you can anonymize your money afterwards. I only see these companies as "gateways", rather than being my "crypto bank" or "crypto wallet".
If you're happy losing money from doing a cash exchange, that's fine. But I don't want people to be afraid of crypto because they think it's either going to cost them a lot to use it or that it will cost them their privacy.
I have an account on Kraken, and I can convert my euros to crypto for just the cost of sending them a wire transfer from my bank (which is often free).

You can always render services for cash on the downlow. But your phone data provider still knows where you were and for how long, who you are, and possibly who else was there. It's really hard to keep anything you do these days from some company or other w/ a vested interest in analyzing all of your behavior to better manipulate you subtly down the line. If a government ever buys google, run for the hills mang.

This is retarded.

I have several months left on my 4chanpass but once it expires, I won't be buying another one, as I have no idea how Bitcoin works and no interest in getting involved with it.

I can't imagine Hiroshimoot sticking to this policy, as I suspect the overwhelming majority of 4chanpass users will do the same as me and he's going to lose a steady source of income for no reason at all.

It's fucking stupid.

Damn man, you have my sympathies. Nothing worse than doing something you know you don't want to get involved with, have nothing but trouble from start to finish, and finally get it completed only to find out there was another way shortly after. A very cruel joke was played on you.

4chan will be gone before 2020, I'm certain. No business no matter how retarded would shut off their main source of revenue besides ads if the walls weren't closing in.
It's been a good 12 years.

It is nigh impossible to buy crypto where I live without buying like $70 worth to begin with, plus all the trading sites that work here (coinbase isn't one of them) look kinda seedy so I'm not sure I'd trust their exchange rates. Not to mention we're getting capital gains tax in the near future so any profits will be further minimised. Anyhow it's a false problem because @89614.

You can just buy some from localbitcoins using webmoney or something
