    If you remove the word virtual, this is still true. Man 2014, is being a bit rough on crypto-currencies.

    Brother Gorilla ... i was finna try to get involved with bitcoins ... but now it doesn't seem the thing to do.

    I've even read talk of regulation and stuff regarding it ... removing the differences between it and us currency.

    hmmmm ... yeah ... 2014 seems a bad year for bitcoins.

    We probably could have guessed this though ... as governments don't want to be left out of any money loops.

    :heart:

    The Central Bank system is heavily protected.. anything that threatens it is dealt with.. swiftly.

    Mt. Gox (happy when they got removed from a lot of indexes) has pretty much imploded too and it looks like there may have been some shady things going on. Bitcoin as a whole did pretty well surviving that but a lot of people are going to be left apprehensive.

    I just don't get how they expect to regulate it.
