This was created as an experimental alt currency. A means of exchange. It’s too far gone from that now to even go back. It’s a perversion. It’s going to eventually be targeted by regulators, governments, other early adopters will break ties. The magic box that you put your dollar in and turn it into a thousand dollars is simply to disruptive to the world economy.

Russia says it will legalize it.

 

Mike K. and I know a young fella in the hospitality industry here that's gone all in on it.  Who knows, maybe today he becomes a millionaire.

He would have better odds placing it all on Red at the Roulette table. There is no obvious reason to be involved with Bitcoin apart from gambling. Its vaporware and doesn't exist except in binary code. 

Not to forget it can be hacked https://www.reuters....h-idUSKBN1E10AQ

When it stopped being used as a transaction currency and became strictly an investment tool, it lost its intrinsic value.

Was listening to a show on the radioon all the problems and benefits from the Bitcoin farming along the Columbia in Washington State. Listening to that show and them talking about Bitcoin boom towns was finally proof to me that we are living in the future.

We fret about unplugging our phone chargers to preserve a tiny trickle of electricity and meanwhile massive warehouses of servers are whirring away churning out pointless calculations so nerds, speculators and criminals can have their funny money.

Exactly.

 

We celebrate the $15M expansion of Nanaimo's airport and the increase in direct flights to the east, when air travel - especially non-essential leisure travel -  is one of the biggest contributors to carbon emissions.
