Bankers and Investors arent the problem with the current system..
They are just trying to earn a buck out of "The way things are"
If they think Bitcoin is worth "investing in", more power to them, they will help drive its adoption and uptake.
They might cause some wobbles if some of them get cold feet and jump out again, or "take their profits" back into their previous systems, causing trade-value fluctuations.. but I think Bitcoin will survive a fair bit of lily-livered short term focussed traders trying to earn a quick xx$.
Nothing will stop the fact that it is the first un-manipulatable, unstoppable way for anyone in the world to send digital value to anyone else they want with no middle men or moral guardians deciding you're not allowed to do so because they dont like what you are doing with your money.
This alone will ensure its long term success in my opinion. It is real *free trade*. And about time too.
The people I'm rah-ing at are all the economic experts claiming that they know why it wont work. Right guys, if you're opinions are so right and you know so much better, what the hell are you doing logging onto some tiny internet forum and blowing hot-air about ?
Surely there is some investment bank that needs your infallible expertise much more than we do ?
