Depends on the nature of the hypothetical attack, and whether or not I deem it a one off.

Yes, just as if I were arrested and jailed for a long time for an act of civil disobedience, I would engage in a similar act after getting out. It's not about my personal finances (and even if it were, I have diversified my non-fiat savings). It's about supporting a technology that I believe can change the world.

The nature of the hypothetical attack was specified: it was / will be an "inexplicable" attack.

Hmm, an inexplicable attack on an explicable cryptocurrency destroys it, eh?

If we do go with another cryptocurrency despite that, ought we go with an explicable one or an inexplicable one?

-MarkM- (I might get so wrapped up in exploring inexplicability that I'd miss out on the ground floor opportunity of the new currency...)

Yeah, that's a good point. I'd probably wait until the inexplicable attack gets explicked before I decide.  Tongue

Sure I would. But I also didn't invest millions in bitcoin, as I think it's still pretty vulnerable to attack.
