Bitcoins are up to 1 BTC = $5800, wtf
@Gargron 90 billion blockchain :^)
Maybe I shouldn't have cashed out those donations I got in BTC in April....
@Gargron Just a matter of time until it tumbles down. We couldn't have known - and it would've been risky. Probably.
@Pasty Yeah, investing 101. Still though, wew
@Gargron I spent all my microbitcoins on videogames early this year because I didn't believe it'd stay over 3k long. It's kind of crazy.
@Pasty @Gargron now I'm mostly thinking we're in for a pretty spectacular crash, but maybe I'm wrong.
On the other hand, Mastodon being paid for by a market speculation would be an amazing irony given the politics. (I'm a terrible person, sorry.)
@pony @Gargron I've been waiting for that spectacular crash for like a year by now, though. The gox crash was fun to experience, though.
@gargron I got 0.006614 something at a bitcoin exchange and you can only sell or buy bitcoin at the equivalent of 30 €. So this is great news for me. :D
@Gargron Not surprising considering global events
@Gargron jui, capatalism on steroids
@Gargron If only there were people willing to pay 5800$ for Bitcoins - bet you that there's an "unfortunate" server outage as people try to get the money for their bitcoins.
@Gargron Bitcoin has a lot of promise but I probably won't touch it until it is seen as a currency and not as an investment opportunity.
