The National and mainstream liberal newpaper from the uk   Shocked

http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2013/mar/04/bitcoin-currency-of-vice


"The future of money may or may not include a Federal Reserve Bank of Amazon, but it probably does involve the gradual decentralisation and democratisation of currency. Virtual currencies aren't just a new-fangled sort of Monopoly money. Rather, they may just be the thing that ends the monopoly on money."

I was about to post the article here, only to find you did it first.

I was suprised at how bullish the article was for bitcoin. It will certainly attract more users/speculators.

Good lessons in responding to criticism to be had in the comments.

"Swanmaster" is far too aggressive in my opinion. "bEdwards" does the right thing by agreeing with reasonable portions of criticism and building on that agreement to show things aren't as simple as they seem. (Although claiming people don't hoard bitcoins is a bit ludicrous, on the face of it.)

Incidentally, the main critic in the comments responds to "Swanmaster" but entirely ignores "bEdwards"...

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.
