Obvious troll is obvious.

In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Troll or not, the Bitcoin price is extremely reliant on debt right now. On BitFinex alone, there is over $600k loaned out right now with a 2-day average duration, compared to a mere 477BTC w/72D avg. duration. Keep in mind, the current lowest APR on BTC loans is 1799% (not a typo!). Obviously, putting everything on a credit card would be much cheaper, and I'd be surprised if there were fewer people turning to leverage markets than CC companies at this point for USD to make leveraged BTC buys.

Actually, the EUR and USD are almost entirely reliant on debt in general. So yeah, that doesn't change whether you buy cars, houses, food, or bitcoins with them.

$600k with a 2-day average duration. Obviously, those need to be covered, and pretty quick. They aren't going to pay 1.8k% APR to stay long forever.

Not a significantly large amount. It could be worse.

Bitcoin is not a bubble, it is a snowball and it's just getting started
