Because i don't trust anyone else being in charge of my funds besides me.

I'm a cash guy by nature, but if i gotta do business online, its bitcoin or nothing.

It gives people the real power over the currency.  I'd rather have my money in BTC.  Not to mention the free marketplace that it opens.

Hoarding.

If I can use Bitcoins on some site, I'll use them, but other than that I own Bitcoins mainly as an investment.

Definitely Business, there are just way too many advantages to Bitcoin to ignore it.

My secondary reasons include:

. Pissing off the U.S government and my own, Every Bitcoin gained means no taxes for them and they can't do a thing, I actually wouldn't mind just donating to certain government departments like health though if they were willing to negotiate Smiley

. Truly international trade, I love the way Bitcoin doesn't discriminate like governments do

. Protection against inflation, it's always good to diversify and Bitcoin should be no different, even the most cautious investor should try having 1% of their wealth in this currency just to see how it goes

I'm a liberty enthusiast, amateur economist, and entrepreneur.  I believe bitcoins give the means to begin to fix some of the mess we are in.
