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

This would go oh-so beautifully with this:

can u be more specific?  is hosting.co.uk one of the resellers that got banned by Paypal or are they a separate reseller that independently decided to reject paypal and accept Bitcoin?

They got banned and inserted bitpay afterwards from what i heard.

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

ok, look at it this way.  this is just the fundamentals asserting themselves.

Three good new pieces today. The Bloomberg piece is currently on the Bloomberg.com home page and is the "chart of the day"

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-01-28/bitcoin-s-gains-may-fuel-central-bank-concerns-chart-of-the-day.html


just had a chat with Max Raskin, the author of this article and sent him his first BTC ever as donation :-)

Well, looked into BTC news today and those are definitely some great things to hear!

Looks like the the previous crash is mostly recovered and wiped out. 

I keep asking what if BTC ever hits parity with Silver but this time obviously there's tons of awareness of BTC and demand, compared to the original bubble/crash.

Let's go to $20!

Oh Loaded, who art up in Mt. Gox, hallowed be thy name!  Thy dollars rain, thy will be done, on BTCUSD.  Give us this day our daily 10% 30%, and forgive the bears, as we have bought their bitcoins.  And lead us into quadruple digits

Ha, maybe if bitcoin were heavy and hard to move and conceal large amounts of. Uh, and if it was easy to divide down to the microgram. Oh, and if you could back up gold.

Not a gold hater, but bitcoin >> gold.

Scarcity, its industrial uses and the fact that it looks nice?

I'm all for bitcoin gaining popularity, but what happens when the established institutions start to take notice?  They're probably going to start a PR campaign against bitcoin, most likely overstating how easy it is for a user to lose their wallet.  Heavily implying that your bitcoins could be stolen by some malicious hacker at any time, with no possible chance for a refund.  Which, is a bit of bold faced lie.

Also the last time bitcoin got attention, there was a crash in the worth of bitcoin.

Just curious to see what people think will happen because of an company such as Bloomberg publishing a story like this.

The backing craze has to stop. Bitcoin is backed by nothing and has no intrinsic value - which is just about perfect for a money system.

Honestly I've always considered Bitcoin to be backed by anything and everything that people are willing to sell for BTC. So that would make it backed by a basket of commodities (PMs, honey, coffee, etc...) and services. Sounds pretty sound to me.

That's a perfectly acceptable way of looking at things, provided you also consider USD to be backed by the US economy.

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.

Actually I consider the USD to be backed by the world economy. The petro dollar is the only thing keeping the USD afloat (although it may be replaced by an agri dollar instead). If the rest of the world decides that the USD isn't worth having any more, then the USD is sunk. It'll be around for a while after that happens (not if, but when) but as for its value? It might be cheaper to use singles as toilet paper at that time.

Gold's value is backed by around 4000 years of history.  I like bitcoin and its potential, but let's not let hubris get out of hand.

I'm just poking some fun into the arbitrary "this currency is backed by X..." discussion. I enjoy asking goldbugs who are critical of a digital what they think their gold is "backed by." Hopefully it gets them thinking about what exactly makes currency valuable. I also stack PMs, so I can totally understand why it's tough to see the same level of value in a digital currency.
