    Is anyone buying-selling or mining these? It's a pretty crazy idea, but it's actual virtual currency that seems to be gaining steam as legitimate legal tender.

    I was messing around with the mining software this weekend, it's pain in the ass to setup the GPU end of it. The cost and time of mining it doesn't seem to be worth the effort, but it might be a good investment for purchasing and selling, just like any other currency.

    seems really stupid. bitcoin isn't a currency, so you're 'investing' in digital certificates of fake money?

    That sounds secure and fraud proof

    Yeah, it isn't safe. A few weeks back some guy hacked the main bitcoin bank and stole millions of dollars worth of bitcoins from almost every persons account.

    The exchange rate of eight Ningis to one Pu is simple enough, but since a Ningi is a triangular rubber coin six thousand eight hundred miles along each side, no one has ever collected enough to own one Pu.

    Mining something that doesn't exist, and no one thinks this is a problem?

    Yeah, I wish you had gone down to the floor of the NYSE so someone could say, "It's not a fucking stock, Joseph!"
