When I got started with mining, it seemed like it was going nowhere but up. Now it seems headed in the opposite direction. I thought this currency was supposed to gain value, not lose it? Is it not becoming rarer, and thus more valuable?

Bitcoin is not deflationary.  Bitcoin will be inflationary for about two decades.  Currently the inflation rate is about 16% (someone correct me if I am wrong), which is pretty high.  It it were just a question of inflation/deflation we would expect bitcoin to gradually drop in absolute value.  However inflation/deflation is not anywhere close to being the main cause of bitcoin price fluctuations.  Right now the number of people involved with bitcoin and their predictions for its future are the main causes of price flux.

Want to buy a 2004 Ford Taurus with bitcoin?  I live in Maryland.  Send me a private message if interested.

If price keeps dropping miners will drop out and the difficulty will drop.
