I wasn't aware that the government cared about how many tax dollars they wasted. Are we speaking of the same government, the one in Washington, DC?

That's just one of many governments, although a pretty big and corrupt one. Glad they're not mine Smiley

From the evidence I've seen, the US government doesn't really give a shit about bitcoins yet unless you neglect to put your bitcoin capital gains in your IRS taxes when you file.

I'm sure they'll try to get their paws into it eventually, either to shut it down, or tax it to death, but all I'm saying is there's no evidence that says that's happening yet.

Just remember, every time bitcoin goes up in value, someone loses. Every time it goes down in value, someone loses. The losers are usually not the investment bankers.

This is a very good point.
