I'm extremely surprised to see that bitcoin has only been discussed once and very briefly on these forums. This digital currency is amazing. It's exactly what money should be. Government proof. Bankproof. Anonymous. Mathematically impossible to counterfeit. Has no owner or central authority (it's all open sourced). Can only be shut down if the entire internet shuts down. Cuts out the middlemen (and fees!) Anyway I've invested a bit into in a few days ago. It was at 11$ per bitcoin. Today it's approaching 32$. It's catching up to Silver at an incredible rate. And the bitcoin economy only has something like 60 million dollars into it. Once this goes mainstream, a new term will be in existence: The Bitcoin Billionaire More and more software and websites are popping up to make buying and selling, more and more user friendly. When Bitcoins become accessible to the non-geeks, and are as easy as forex or stocks trading, the value of them will skyrocket. Imagine when the black market catches on. And imagine when wall street catches on. OR it could have an internal problem no-one saw coming. Exactly like every new invention ever. I'dd like to hear everyones opinion on this matter. It's great to test ideas out by seing if they withstand an onslaught of attacks Fire away!
