It's just a number, it's worthless.

Just like other stuff on the internet.

Just send it to me and I will dispose of it properly.

Where's the best place to go cash it in?

Scrape a few more together and buy my beachfront property in Nebraska.

I watched those things last year go up from something like $14 bucks to $145. Then they only went down to around a $hundred and stayed. Don't know what's happened now that the big black market site shut down.

But if only I had bought a zillion at $14 and turned em!

Yeah, I saw in the news yesterday that Silk Road is up and running again.

Speculation silliness.

Beyond the speculation, their other primary actual use seems to be for fishy stuff, such as the previously mentioned Silk Road. Great.

I'm still unsuccessful finding a reputable merchant where I might spend my "gift." I came across a couple dating sites that take bitcoin but I'm not really interested in them. Looks like I might have to either play online poker or cash out cheap since I'm not interested in buying from Dread Pirate Roberts either.

If you can get to Vancouver, there is now an ATM that takes/converts them.

Geezus! $837! I wish I still had the 5 bit coins I once had. Oh wait, since they're virtual I guess I never had them, that's right. So I couldn't sell them now for over $4000 bucks.

Well I wouldn't buy them now but at $14 they were a nice buy.

The disconnect from the real world continues in the love of money.

Fixate well my friends, for this is the future you conceived.

Meanwhile, the non-bitcount world around you is slowly or quickly perishing due to your consumptive perspective.

This is just the next level of the world as a resource not a gift.

Carry on with the selfies and dis-associative processes. It is the legacy of this time.

Just like Zucherburg came up with a smoother version of the Winklevoss brothers concept and left them crying at the side of the road, so it seems is about to happen again with then and Bitcoin.

It could be tomorrow, or next week, a month from now or later next year, but one morning people are going to wake up to find their Bitcoin speculation bubble burst.

Historically, the real money is in guns and drugs, maybe some slaves...can you use bitcoin to buy a nice 13 year old girl ?

(yes - this is 2013...wtf http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=28f_1380537487);

I'll post a good article later but suffice it to say: Buyer beware.
Already quite a few accounts have been hacked and the 'accounts' cleaned out.
