You know, IF someone knew anything about reliable sources of how to get hold of prescription drugs (and not from the docs) please feel free to PM as I'm...erm.. studying this subject in school.

The Bitcoin virtual currency lost half its value yesterday because of a panic sell-off.

From a high of $260 (169) for each Bitcoin, the value dropped to about $130 (84) in just six hours.
Ginners was right.

Biggest trading day ever. I watched it all live here: http://bitcoin.clarkmoody.com/

it's at $160 now. The bubble was noobs being ripped off by traders and the crash was those traders basically buying back the bitcoins they'd sold at a much lower price from panicked noobs. I was kind of obvious watching the livefeed. At one stage there was thousands selling at $150 and then there would be say 10 sold at $130 then mass panic. I covered my costs when it bounced back to 180 just in case. I wish I had sold at 266 then bought more at 110. I think it'll hit 200 again soon. Then there will be more booms and busts.

When I started the thread I paid over the odds @ $65

they likened it to the tulip bubble of the 17th century, I tried to read into that but lost interest, but from what I gather throuogh assumptions, the dutch were investing in tulip bulbs, which had inflated to more than an average week's wages per bulb. They were walking out to the shopping centres with bouquets of these tulips, getting heaps of jeans and shit but then the tulips would get smashed up in their pockets and by the time they were at the till, all they had was petals. Hence the clogs. Something like that.

back at 158 now, went as low as $45. the kid who ran bitcoin-24.com (an exchange) is up on money laundering charges and has had his bank accounts frozen. he had 10k in 500 euro notes when the police searched his apt. Apparently something like 6 million in cash and bitcoin frozen. Quite a lot of death threats from people saying they'll hire assassins off tor/silkroad.

Friend made about 125,000 quid via this investing just 1,000. Now he says he'll open up a business.

He's sold it all off - retiring from this.

Needless to say I'm jealous of him.

an unusual conflict of interest for these liberty loving shit the beds. apparently the feds are in the wrong going after servers which host ridiculous amounts of child p*rn because it "denies freedom on the internet" you earn your freedom and if the network is being used to host significant amounts of illegal shit i'm afraid nobody should be surprised if the government steps in. according to that article tor is basically a child p*rn haven so they shouldnt have any complaints if the feds do their job and go after the sick f***s who trade it.

in addition is it not a bit stupid to create a currency which has a value apparently so closely linked with the continued floatation of child p*rn websites appreciate deepers mate has supposedly done alright out of it but in general probably not the smartest business move.

regardless, there will be a lot of bitcoin traders and pedos shitting themselves right about now. as both appear to be total ****ers, vg2know.

Bitcoin and others like it are an interesting concept (abstract at best at the moment though) but they aren't yet a recognisable currency. They don't stand up at all against genuine currencies in terms of value, longevity and growth but in terms of exchanging/ hiding revenue/ profit they are useful...pretty much a swap-shop..and that's why crims use them.

Will it one day become a decent worthwhile investable currency though. I'm no economics guru but surely the basis of currency is due competition between borders? If you dissolve the borders and make currency "as one" it has no value.....who knows.......

longevity perhaps (as it's a new currency) but show me a currency with the same growth or value compared to the dollar?

last year 1 bitcoin = $11
now = $107
a while back = $220

How would buying something at double figures and selling it at triple figures not be 'investable'? Ok so it's not one for pension funds but compared to some stuff that pension funds have been invested in recently it stacks up pretty well.

The problem with bitcoin at the moment is everyone is investing (and generally holding) and few are using it as a true currency. There's not enough places to spend it etc. Especially legit places.

Personally, I think bitcoin is just the first attempt at a crypto-currency rather than what we'll end up with but still I'm impressed with it's resilience.

I've been on the main bitcoin forum and quite frankly the zealots are the biggest threat to things. Deep down they don't want it to be easy for joe bloggs to use bitcoin. I would've bought a lot more bitcoin if it was easy but it's not.
