    I'm just wondering when this Bitcoin fad will run it's course and finally fade into obscurity.

    Unless there is a catastrophic breach of Bitcoin's security (the "currency" itself, not wallets), this is starting to look like something a bit more than a fad. The whole reason people have bought into the crypto currency product is growing mistrust of western gov'ts and banking authorities. Seeing as neither of those entities can or will do anything meaningful to improve their relationship with the public in the foreseeable future, there's a good chance Bitcoin could cement itself as an electronic commodity. At this point, the only thing holding it back is corporate endorsement.

    You just want real world producers to give up 5 and half billion dollars in goods for something people made up? Davis give me all your assets and I'll give you a promissory note. I think my note will feature a picture of Kanye.
  7. Just like in the 1990s, it'll fade into obscurity just like email! Oh wait..

    Well said. Hahaha.
  10. "Tulipmania"
  11. Smacks of new world order infiltration particularly when the word "Disney" is used. MK Ultra victim if ever there was one!! Rather than fade away, sit back and watch Bitcoin go into overdrive! One government, one bank, one currency, one language, centrally controlled food & utility supply, centrally controlled military, Internet, the list goes on...........

    Yeah but lets face it, when it comes to money and wealth there's no such thing as honesty and fairness.
  13. Better the devil you know, though.

    Personally, I would rather have the Bank of England manipulating my currency.
