Not suggesting anyone toss in their retirement , but definitely worth tossing in a few bucks.... Or maybe your retirement if ya got sac!

Like I said , it's hard at first to wrap your head around . The mining network has more power then something like 64x the top 500 super computers combined ! People spending 10 to 20 k , just to pre order miners! http://www.businessinsider.com/most-...upiter-2013-12

Ask the Swansea Police about bitcoins, they paid a ransom to a hacker to get their records back in bitcoins. No chit.

Chef, i hope you have a diversified portfolio.. Yes, invest in your high risk stocks, which will give you your thrills, but i hope you got some slow growth safe stuff as well… Don't forget about all of those guys that jumped out of windows in '28 when they lost it all……

I would if I really cared. I think this an innovative fad for the most part. Currency needs stability and its going to be 10 plus years before there's enough buy in.

Why a VS200? Got one sitting on your desk?

It's just a matter time before it's federally regulated and taxed. The government will screw it up. But I do believe it will be around for a while

I don't see how the feds could regulate it, unless Congress made it illegal. We will likely see some digital currency legislation very soon...

Mtgox has been done for along time. Look at this guy , would you trust him with your money ?
http://thegenesisblock.com/an-analys...ceo-of-mt-gox/
I'm loving it though ! Loads of profit with all the swings and FUD with mtgox .

Bitcoins are not going anywhere anytime soon . Secondmarket is rushing its plans to get an exchange going http://finance.fortune.cnn.com/2014/...coin-exchange/ , coinbase has created its millionth wallet . 1st bitcoin ATM in USA at Boston's south station http://finance.fortune.cnn.com/2014/...coin-exchange/

Gattafish , how about investing in both .....
http://potcoin.info
Hah

Spence , offer still stands ....
