I don't see bitcoin in the prices; where do I have to look?

Worth noting: this guy posts about Bitcoin in his byline a lot, so it's not like this particular article is that unusual.

The Bloomberg one is a big deal, though.

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the prevalence of users convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and of the con-artists who have followed them here to devour them.

Matonis writes about Bitcoin all the time - but I mentioned it because his articles get parroted often and this one had a particularly fun headline that might make the rounds.

Damn it. I smell the beginnings of a bubble. And I kind of promised to myself I wouldn't get involved in day trading.

Matonis writes about Bitcoin all the time - but I mentioned it because his articles get parroted often and this one had a particularly fun headline that might make the rounds.

Matonis articels are well written and can stand any journalistic investigation, in opposite to the doomsday writers Wink. Thats important to me at least. When I occasionally tell somebody about Bitcoin I am more confident these days that a little google research won't let him think its all "dangerous stuff"... This was different a year ago, when I googled "Bitcoin" for the first time. Well, if you search for "Bitcoin" in other languages than english you might be dissappointed - so many nativ english speakers have no glue what that really means.

Oh yeah, that's great news!
All three articles are well written. No surprise with Matonis' here, but I am very happy that even Bloomberg got it right!

Gentlemen, it is beginning.
Maybe it began some time ago, but in short time everything will go nuts! :-)

Anyone know what gambling site gambling911 referes to ?

It's not any of the sites that were taken down by the us govt. previously ? If so, that would be hell of a way to pay back, if they dear doing so, or will we see another player. If one major player accepts bitcoin, the others will soon follow.

I think it will happen, because gambling sites are all about profits, and if there's a way to rise profit, you can be damn sure they will do it!
