This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.

2.5M registered users for Mega in the first two weeks (link)....not bad

Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.

One other re-seller was accepting BTC. But this is news because Kim Dotcom just tweeted it to a quarter million followers, and will certainly talk about it more. This is him finally endorsing bitcoin, which the world has been waiting for.

Ahhhh, it all becomes so clear now

Dotcom himself is the deep pockets that have relentlessly driven us up from 13.

Now, his ready cash exhausted, he makes this announcement and sells into the resulting rally...

BRILLIANT!

Hopefully he will keep tweeting, but I think this kinda distance way of endorsing.

... except all his assets are mostly still frozen by the FBI under Proceeds of Crime type laws. He has been living on the goodwill of others since January last year.

This is the kind of push BTC needs. If only other hosters would look a little bit into the future

Not mean to be negative, but bitvoucher exchange rate is horrible.
At current prices, you will end paying $14 for a $9.99.- worth subscription ...

If you don't own the private keys, you don't own the coins.

For whiners and grinches like you the fee is doubled.
