Bitcoins take the convenience and power of a bank, and transfers it to the individual.


Were it accepted everywhere, there would be no more banks, in a sense, as everyone would be their own bank.


First they ignore you....(the stage were are at now)
then they laugh at you....(won't be long_\
then they fight you....

Then you win.

I thought we were coming up on the limit of bitcoin as far as transaction time goes. Due to constraints within the blockchain or whatever it's called, it can only handle x transactions per minute, which limits the number of users. I'm sure the platypus has a better handle on this.

I can't foresee a time in my life where I will ever need to pay for anything with a bitcoin

Except every other day whatever place is responsible for holding/issuing these things gets hacked and loses a few million worth.

There is a finite amount of Bitcoins...and more and more businesses are starting to accept them. And, on the consumer front, as more individuals try to get their hands on bitcoins, the value increases....
