Tessera

Den eimai ellinas, alla kapos milao ligo ellinika.  Emeina 2 xronia stin athina.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

I thought Greeks dealt in gold and silver coins. At least, that's what I learned from watching Hercules and Xena.

Well, we'll be leaving the Euro first (pretty soon), unless the Germans get to win that race.

And BTW, Hercules (your version) and Xena are Australians, not Greeks.

We have had black market economy and barter for thousands of years, under any conqueror. We will survive, no matter how hard it will be. It's only a pity that Bitcoin only exists for a couple of years. If it was a more established currency, as I expect it to be in a few years time, then any transition would be much easier.

Think that any weekend from now on can be default weekend for us. The government on a Friday night will declare a 3-day holiday for banks on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so that they have time to print new currency and change our Euros to devalued Drachmas. And freeze deposits at the same time.

Bitcoins FTW.

Using bitcoins is just about the same as using euros. What Greece is looking at right now is either:
1. Flip the finger to it's creditors, and restructure it's debt (read "default on it")
2. Monetize it's debt by printing drachmas
3. A combinations of the above

The failure of Greece if not a monetary fiasco, it's a fiscal, governmental and democratic fiasco.

more so bad governments.listen to this:

public *servants* (i like the word) were getting much more money than private employees and *without* the possibility of loosing their job EVER, no matter what they did. they could spit their boss in his face, and dont get fired.

of course taking this away from them, makes them protest. its natural. no economy can survive this.
