Are bitcoins ever going to become a big deal (like, will I have to find out what they are)?

Café round the corner from my house accepts bitcoin. Find that a bit weird.

The taxi office at Walthamstow Central station has a Bitcoin ATM.

If yr bus is more than 10 minutes late you get the day off school fam

In 2010 bitcoin was worth $0.008
It’s currently worth around $3,000

That’s quite a return on ROI investment

What actually comes out of a bitcoin ATM? Just a slip saying ‘lol cunt’?


You think I’ve used it?

This is the bit where the meek inherit the Earth isn’t it? Fucking meek pricks.

I’ve got a Scotcoin (or Scotcoins, dunno?) that were supposedly worth £10 when I signed up to get it/them on a freebie promotion thing a few months back. Haven’t once logged in to check my ‘wallet’ since signing up. Might be a $¢ millionaire. Or it might have crashed. No idea.

They occasionally send me emails that are one of two types: 1) a promotion/opportunity/last chance to buy more Scotcoins before the price goes up (what?), or 2) notification of a forthcoming steering group meeting or summat, which always seems to be akin to a Linux User Group in terms of personnel, location, and scale (i.e. a dozen middle aged men in a hotel meeting room).

When did you buy?

Tantalising x-axis, there. :chart:

Signed up at the start of January, so after a dive between then and March, followed by volatility from April to June, July send to have levelled off at the level of maybe a 10% appreciation. So, an extra quid. :moneybag:

the x axis is a timeline - it says 2016, don’t know why ESA cropped it

10% is not a bad return

this time next year you could be miwwionaires wzas

Just bought some ethereum.

I actually traded my ethereum recently for Ark. I really want to diversify more but I have too many things to pay for this month to really play around crypto at the moment :expressionless:

Got some Ark yesterday as well, just in time by the looks of things

Yeah I originally bought into Ethereum at 330 euros :expressionless:

Just in case anyone was thinking of investing, it’s still a good idea but…choose wisely.

I don’t play trading card games.

(well I kind of do play one a little now, but shh)
