Bitcoins were created some time ago to act as a true digital currency. Many at the time were quick to dismiss it as nothing more than a two-bit pipe dream. Today? Well, as they say, "Follow the money." Fox News (I know, I know, bear with me) Needless to say, shit's cash. Also, "Must be the money." Now, Bitcoin still faces its fair share of criticism. Being a digital currency, security is a huge issue. Beyond that, many claim that the anonymity it provides users facilitates black markets. The discussion is pretty civil, though - I haven't seen anyone use terms like "Shitcoin" yet (and I better not, because I call dibs on that!). Still, it's interesting to see that a greater acceptance of digital currency is starting to emerge. It's often a staple of science fiction - perhaps it's not so far fetched after all. Of course, that does mean we'll no longer be able to make it rain. Huh. Weep for the future, ladies and gentlemen.
