Thanks, ****wit. We totally didn't realize these aren't physical coins.

Here's my bitcoin. 6489106915061.

Take half of it. Go on, show me how this is done. Beyond me telling you that you have half and remembering it. Now go spend your half. How's that work, you tell me to give your half to someone else?

There's no control in this scenario for fractional ownership that I can see. Admittedly, I've only know about this concept for a few hours.
So you're trying to figure it out too and start whipping out ****wit and insults? I don't get you sometimes. Sometimes so wise and sometimes so irritating.

If you open the client, there are two decimal places in your coin ownership. This implies fractional ownership. I don't understand how it works anymore than you do, but a currency that you can't break down into smaller increments is pretty useless. Considering the problems that appear to be solved in this currency, this seems to be a pretty tiny piece of the puzzle.
