    For some reason, I don't think Bitcoins is going to replace or challenge mainstream currency anytime soon. I suspect it might have something to do with the violality of Bitcoins. The value of Bitcoins flacuates too frequently and to too much of a degree for Bitcoins to even remotely be a safe investment. And it also might have something to do with the fact that many people use illegal means of mining Bitcoins, like stealing cpu resources from infected computers. Because Bitcoins is oftentimes associated with illegal online activities, this is why I don't think Bitcoins will ever challenge--let alone replace --mainstream currency.

    I think the world powers are going to stamp Bitcoin out eventually. Whether they hack it to pieces or have something else up their sleeve like demonizing it. The money system we are trapped in world wide is here to stay and Bitcoin started to show possibilities of disrupting the monetary system in place already.

    If the powers in control let Bitcoin grow they would lose power over all in this world. I believe Bitcoin will be further attacked until its useless.

    Slaves we are.. every last one of us to the system, a controlling system. Where soon cash will be useless in an all digital age.
