Arrow BITCOIN Digital Currency Boom - Are You Using It?


The Bitcoin is a fairly new digital currency that is being used in America, China, India, Australia, UK, and other countries. It makes transactions with other countries easier, regardless of differences in currencies. This system also eliminates delays, holds, extra charges, etc. usually found when using credit cards, paypal, etc. Another plus is that there's no sticky fingers, or noses of the government being poked in for control and profits. http://www.latimes.com/business/la-f...#axzz2n5wbrJ5G

Here's a story to bring tears to your eyes, £4million in bitcoins stored in a spare computor hard drive was thrown out in a clearout and is buried somewhere in a tip with the owner frantically trying to find it for the last 2 weeks.

I do not trust bitcoins, too volatile.

They fluctuate like crazy and China recently made bitcoin transactions illegal.

Bitcoin just ended-up being an investment vehicle for speculators.

I think something will come along in terms of an independent online currency, but Bitcoin at this point just isn't trusted.

I'm skipping Bitcoin and sticking with Paypal. At least with Paypal, when you deposit 50 bucks, it remains at 50 bucks no matter what the markets do.

Why not just barter for goods? Why do we need to use debt notes (so-called "money") as a middleman?
