Great response. But after all that is said and done, aren't you just gambling against the USD? If the USD flops tomorrow, BTC would too right? Buying BTC is basically saying "ok the USD is going to die, gold/silver will take over, then BTC will take over because gold/silver aren't really good for anything besides local bartering, and I'll be rich! Muhahaha!." Does that sum it up pretty well?
If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.
