I never got into things like this Bitcoin craze but it is a little hard to ignore it now with news stories about these crypto currencies popping up every day. In many ways, this kind of stuff feels like even if you have no interest in it maybe you should dabble a little bit into it just incase it becomes say a “standard” in one way or another.
I must say though, it seems like most of the news you read about these currencies have to deal with things like an underground trade. Basically, illegal activity. Then on the other side of the fence you have supporters that say this news is simply because banks hate the fact that there is a possible alternative out there. For the most part these types of currencies are probably here to stay one way or another. Whether or not it will become viable in everyday life is another question.
