not to mention the dollar sign? um... wut? And yes, bitcoin has the word coin in it, I know.


What difference does it make?

If someone wants BTC I'll pay with that.
If someone wants dollars I'll exchange it for that.
If someone wants rubles I'll exchange it for that.
If someone wants yen I'll exchange it for that.
If someone wants Red Lobster gift cards I'll pay with that.

See how this works?

Spoken like a true hater with 0 BTC to his name, or someone with a hard on for authoritarian governments who crack down on free association.

Really though you're just mad you didn't buy any when it was super cheap.

Bitcoin isn't about "making money," it's about making traditional banking irrelevant, and all other associated centralized institutions (the Fed etc...). You know, those guys who blew up the financial system and made tons of Americans homeless, then forced those same Americans to give them trillions of dollars for the service. Yeah, it's about eliminating that parasitic grift from society with simple technology.

What's truly funny is how those very same toxic institutions are attempting to ban cash now. So which would you rather use if they're both just ones and zeroes, a centralized system where a select few oligarchs issue and control the ones and zeroes, manipulating it at their will and for their own personal profit? Or would you rather use a 100% voluntary and decentralized form of currency that's not controlled by a few oligarchs?
Or in the case of some, like Ripple, removing credit card surcharges from transactions. Direct from consumer to bank, with no 'processing fees' grafted from Visa/MC/Amex, etc...
