@zkat I think crypto currency has a real shot at making governments become more honest and quit with the funny money. I think it’s very valuable to the world
@nickchuckwalter people actually use government money for exchanging goods and services. They derive their value that way, primarily.
It's certainly true that a lot of the interest in BTC over the course of its various expansions has been driven by speculation -- as one would expect of anything with the potential to grow in value. But it's also clearly true that there is a substantial core of devotees who care about wrenching the control of money from the hands of governments.
