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.

I have BitcoinCharts set to a 15-minute autorefresh even though I think they have their own autorefresh script in place.

15 minutes? How are you able to cope with the time in between - have some substitutes? Cheesy

Funny how people always talk about the dangers of Bitcoins because it can be used to buy drugs... They don't realize that Bitcoin is the drug Cheesy

Yeah it's nuts. But I think it's perfectly natural for people to do this - it's exciting!

I used to stay glued to my trading platform during my early days of forex trading. Eventually I grew the balls necessary to just step back, go to the beach, have a beer with some buddies, etc, and not be "worried" or constantly be thinking about what my trading positions are doing. The same thing will happen with bitcoin for bitcoin holders/traders once some sort of price stability is reached.

But until then I will continue to keep an eye on the btc/usd exchange rate like a hawk!

Sometimes it is..and I'd say a large portion of the recent price growth was/is being driven by this irrational behavior. But also a portion of it is not irrational behavior but a genuine belief in the technical and practical advantages of the bitcoin monetary system. The people that are adopting bitcoin and building ventures around and with it are the ones that should get the glory. The speculators on the other hand see an easy "get rich" opportunity and well they take it - it's human nature.

Worry not, all things will work out just fine in the end Wink The free market will take care of itself.

Hey Vlad, since you're rolling in it now and all, mind if I use that phrase as a tag? adding 'anonymous' anywhere is a smart move for the search engines ...
