Seems like a good question to me.

Forex, gambling, pyramid schemes, porn, money laundering and black-market babies are all well and fine.  Fiat can get you the same things.

But I want a real bitcoin economy with more productive activities too.  Maybe even activities that fiat isn't so good at providing.

There are some real goods and services at https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Trade, but they seem like more of an afterthought.  Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's all pretty new after all.

Seems like bitcoin's low transaction costs would be great for micropayments, and its worldwide acceptance would work really well for crowdsourcing small tasks.  I can think of dozens of opportunities that aren't focused on the currency itself.

I'm a newbie, so correct me if I'm wrong.  Is the productive part of the economy growing as fast as zero-sum sectors like forex and pyramid games?

Big, quality sites have a lot of lead time. There are big things being built in the background as we speak that won't come online for another 2 months or more.

That makes a lot of sense.  I saw this quote from http://www.btcvc.com/, which summed it up better than I did:

Quote
"Unless an economy with goods and services based on Bitcoin can be established, Bitcoin never has the potential to be anything more than just a vehicle with which to transfer value from one currency to another ...

If Bitcoin only exists as a medium to exchange with other currencies, Bitcoin will become an untraceable version of Forex that's plagued by fraud.

The only way to sustain the economy of Bitcoin is to invest in businesses based in providing goods and services in exchange for Bitcoin."

I'm looking forward to helping build real, productive services denominated in bitcoin.
