Let's assume I am wining poker player (playing online for living) making regular cashouts to buy food, pay rent etc.
Let's assume I was playing on some fiat currency based poker room, I decided to switch part of my game to bitcoin poker, with no intention to hold coins, just to sell anything what would be above amount need for the game.
Question is, am I actually pumping money into bitcoin economy by giving part of my daily income?
Remember those guys who are loosing players have to redeposit, so they are forced to buy bitcoins if they are not mining. More money off their pockets is going into bitcoin economy, OTOH I am constantly exchanging to fiat what I've "earned" by playing poker, and taking money back out of BTC economy.
All thoughts aprecciated
