Sorry, I just don't see it as something that can replace money.  The amount of power being used to generate the existing bit coins is more than the power output of some countries.  It's estimated that the power output needed by 2020 will be more than is currently produced on earth... so no, I'm not interested.

 

Besides, when computers get wiped out by an EMP and we get plunged back into the dark ages, cash money will be unaffected.  Bitcoin will vanish overnight.

This is something that needs to be monitored. But at this point in time I still want to be able to touch money if I choose. It's bad enough that gold and silver don't back the American dollar. So put me in the no column.

Right. Buy a few Bitcoins(there are many types) and have to work another 50 years to make up the loss.

Are you still hoarding silver, copper pennies, Teddy Roxbin or buying pet rocks?

Jumping on board anything is risk. The saying: Look before you leap is no myth. It wasn't the ones who jumped that coined it but the ones who watched the jumping.  I support moderate, natural growth which honors opportunity. Prosperity is not in a hurry as it visits with all. We tend to hurry

The problem with those who stray that way in real estate will soon find that although buyers start online, they need a good agent on the ground and in person to get the best transaction, deal and or sale

It is not a fad. It is the changing world. It is the changing technology. I am a visionary so I can see things like this taking hold and the opportunity for the future. Augmented Realty is here and many people said it is just a fad, but it is not. 

People also said Facebook was a fad. They said YouTubers were a fad!!!! Heck, America's Got Talent laughed at Lindsay saying there is no place for violin in the market. ---- She showed them through YouTube that was not true!!!!
