so bitcoins are just created out of thin air if your computer solves a problem? Sounds like someone took a page out of Bernanke's book on banking.

If you make a profit using bit-coins - do you have to pay tax?

I am not sure about it. There have been plenty of e-currencies which have failed terribly. While I understand that it is different than Zeek Rewards which was a big scam I don't get why people are so interested in using a fake currency.

I am sure it will continue to increase in popularity until the day it will blow up.
