Uh, yeah, we've seen how that works.

Why would anyone with large amounts of money want to use a non regulated broker?? Especially if those same people just had their money in (nearly) non regulated Cyprus and got burned? They are the people FXCM is marketing to. Honestly, some people deserve to lose their money.

Two big problems for Bitcoin: hackers and, most of all, the law. When this kind of money will be uncomfortable, then the governments will try in every way to make it outlaw.

This is a new "invention" designed to get any one of us to part with our real monney (for what it's worth) to buy it. Paying for online products? I don't trust anything, much, but if I wanted to, I'd use Paypal or something similar.

I look at Paypal and credit cards as simply money portals for moving it around the place.

Bank accounts are effectively bitcoins if you remove the funny £$€uiqalls in front of the numbers. The mechanism behind the numbers is neither here or there.

All comes out in the wash with inflation, interest rates, currency rates and the printing press. Cigarettes and cocaine even.

I like tomatoes

If I could I would like to value every lil tink in tomatoes.

Addenda: I like peppers too. So yep tomatoes and peppers would be my choice.
