So they confiscated a bunch of bitcoins? Does that mean they can cash them in?
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

At least temporarily it should make the rest more valuable. Where can I sell short?
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

Bitcoin is still a bit too volatile a currency for that to be an immediate effect.  But essentially you're right.
Rich people won't kill the rest of us off until there are really good robots.

We were talking about building our foreign exchange rates into this forecasting model, rather than using the conversion from workday.  Anyway, I brought up bitcoins and all I got was confused puppy dog looks from the whole room.

that's too bad. it's pushing $3000 right now. most analysts say it will go well above $5K and possibly to $100K in the next 10 years.
you'd be surprised how much a nutsack can stretch. you have to stretch it yourself, not a woman. they don't do it quite right.

i own a third of a coin and it's doing great.

i feel like a loser in the corner holding my tiny sliver of coin.

but, seriously, if you buy now you will make money. it's a gamble to say how much, but you'll make it.

I might be able to afford 1% of a coin if I'm lucky.  But maybe I can do dollar cost averaging and accumulate maybe 10% after a year.  With electronic trading, us individuals mean nothing.   Remember stock splits?  Doesn't happen anymore, since something like 70% of all money invested is institutional.  :fyp:
