There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

What it seems to be more about is the creation of market makers for bitcoin who are willing to both buy and sell it at all times.  This is a pretty key feature of large liquid markets.

I'm not excited about the high frequency trading part - imagine bots on steroids - but overall I think more liquidity and acceptance of bitcoin is a good thing.

We repeat this all the time but is that what we really need?

I mean BTC transactions and volumes are going up but we seem to be always stuck into a sort of "limbo".
