I don't know what segment she heard, but my mom just emailed me that she heard about bitcoins on her way home from work on NPR. Apparently it was a BBC segment with a bunch of interviews. Anybody know which segment that might be?

For me, bitcoin just crossed another major milestone  Smiley

She's convinced I'm risking jail time by working on next-gen bitcoin protocols, and I'm not totally convinced she is wrong about that.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Try reading before posting... he didn't know what the date was...

Coinbase for selling BTCs or Vircurex for trading alt cryptocurrencies like DOGEs
CoinNinja for exploring the blockchain.
