PeacefulAnarchism's got a good point. The dude is not proposing dumping all your savings into Bitcoins, he's advocating them as a viable alternative currency.
If you bought half a Bitcoin for 17 bucks and bought a few jars of peanut butter with it on the same day, you wouldn't lose a damn thing, and you'd weaken the Fed's financial hegemony.
As much as people here talk about worthless FRNs, this kind of response makes me feel like there are few cowboys out here that are all hat and no cattle.
It doesn't have to be your life savings, it can be six bucks.
