    I mean the encryption on it, wouldn't quantum computing render the entire currency worthless? It seems like a poor place to put your money knowing that.

    So encryption is definitely done once quantum computing happens, so you're right in that respect. I don't know if the underlying elements are subject to change, but it may become more difficult to manage them until we have quantum-resistant encryption algorithms. Interesting point!

    Hadn't seen that, but I don't believe it to be true. China has companies (which like many operations there are basically controlled by government) which are devoted entirely to large scale bitcoin mining operations. Literally just huge warehouses with thousands of machines operating around the clock.

    That Legends Room is going nowhere fast. I like crypto, love cutting out governments/banks etc but not everything (like a f*cking strip club) needs its own currency. New businesses almost certainly don't need to be 'decentralized' or have a blockchain. It's buzz words & bullsh1t that stop this stuff from really taking off. ICO's another problem

    And you just don't understand what 'tangible' means. Which is odd being that you obviously have internet access and could easily seek out the definition of the word via a quick google search. It means 'a thing that is perceptible by touch'. You either get that, or your don't. Feel free to research that word if you don't want to take my word for it though.

    Son...you need to stand up for bitcoin, otherwise you are just emboldening the parasitic banks.

    This is the value that Bitcoin provides:
    1. Ability to transfer wealth almost instantly.
    2. Protected against any attacks because there's no central point to attack.
    3. Permanent and public ledger.
    4. Finite supply.

    So you have a currency that won't lose purchasing power, can be sent anywhere in the world, can't be counterfeited and everything is accountable.

    I think anyone that doubts it need to keep a more open mind to it or else you will be blockbustered out of your wealth.

    Think of it this way. There will only be 21 million Bitcoins available in the world with 7 billion plus people. If you can't see the value in that enjoy earning your low interest savings in the bank.

    Im pretty heavily invested in several coins ATM. If anything, its a fun ride to be on at the moment. Not saying I have the money to burn, but the excitement of the volatility of it is really something. The more people I talk to who have never invested, have finally invested in some of it. I work in a tech heavy field and several of my co-workers are already in. I've made some good money but hopefully I make a lot more with my picks. I tried day trading but got burned by BAT. I figured I'd make more hodling than anything and so far thats turned out to be true.

    Two big dips recently related to China. I could see a bear market in the future. I hope not, but it would be a good time to buy if it did happen.

    China, and ICOs, have the potential to scare off newer investors. There are a shit-ton of ICOs that look like scams. I'm not a fan of them in general.

    Litecoin creator caused the latest dip in the market by saying that China was going to ban Bitcoin trading. He then deleted the tweets.

    However, where there's so much smoke, there's often fire. Click on the tweet and read through the series of tweets.
