Yes and it has a huge carbon footprint too! Just what we all need right now.

Some sort of semi-spammer at work here; about 50% of their posts just advertise some website.
I had a look at the one advertised here, through Tor; it isn't malware but some sort of fairly pointless syndication site and I'm sure RomSh has monetary motivation to spread links to that site and get people to click it.

I, fairly recently, saw a video on YouTube which pretty much destryos Bitcoin as a currency: you can't move it without paying fees and it's only anonymous for a fee -- so it isn't a currency. Take one dollar to a market and you can buy and sell and, perhapsa, make a profit. Take a Bitcoin and every transaction will diminish your "money" by a percentage.
I'm all for telling banks to go F themselves but Bitcoin is just a lot of little banks.

i'd be interested to hear from anyone who has managed to buy bitcoin and spend it anonymously also, because I (and a poster in 2600 magazine) couldn't fid a way -- apart, of course, from buying it in one's own name then spending a lot of it in order to hide it to the seller. That's pretty stupid for something supposed to be outside of governments and liberal.
