JoePK saidHow are you using Bitcoins?To buy drugs of course!
JoePK saidJust kidding. Some online retailers are starting to accept bitcoins. And I think some dude bought a house with bitcoins. If you want in on the action, better do it now. I think it's going to collapse eventually.
I went to a bitcoin meetup yesterday and there were quite a few businesses there that are already, or are in the process of, accepting bitcoins for payment.
My old local pub actually accepts BTC as payment (the owner is an esteemed former IT/programming PhD researcher from Cambridge University, who decided to give up academia for fun pub life).
I think the BTC may go through temporary spikes in the future, but, i'm quite confident that it will keep on climbing for some time to come (perhaps until government interference tries to wrangle a stronghold on it for their own gain, but even then, techies will find a way around it sooner or later- we will not be thwarted).
