What do you guys think about this new digital currency that has been all the hype these past few months? The prices have been fluctuating like crazy and the shutdown of MT.Gox has brought its values down to around $650 per coin. What do you guys think? Will we learn to adapt the use of Bitcoins in our future?

 

Btw, this is Love ;) Would love to see increased activity on this forum.

Bitcoin is not new. I remember I was setting up a miner on my PC back in 2005 and by then it was already mature.

The hype is because of media morons.Before they discover it ...things dont exist. The only reason BTC became famous (or rather infamous) was because of it's price rise, the silkroad and other dubious online businesses who deal in BTC. 

 

also stupid news like these http://money.cnn.com...bitcoin-arrest/

 

who the heck launders only 1 million dollars and gets arrested.

Man I wish I knew the existence of Bitcoins back in 2005. I would of known that this would be a hype sooner or later and probably would have mined a lot of coins back when it was easy to mine.
