It depends on your view

The way I see Bitcoin going forward is not as a store of value but as a medium of exchange over great distances.

Right now people are speculating and some people in some countries liek Cyprus and Spain are piling in to protect themselves from who knows what is coming down the pipe.

If in any country the instituted currency controls, then bitcoin, currently is the only way to get your money out other than smuggling it. When you get were you are going, you log on the net and sell your bitcoins for gold and silver.

Some people might see bitcoin as a get rich quick idea and they might actually do it. I see it as a way to move money quickly without having to ask permission.
