you guys are dreaming, which is fine.

My take on the OP, is what, TODAY, do you *need* BTC to buy? I think his point was "not much".

However, I have found it incredibly easy to gamble with BTC.  And speculate. I know there are sizable numbers of forum users who are against both of these things, but the reality is, that's what you can do with BTC today.  I'm having fun doing both.  But if we are to have a thriving BTC economy, we need that "killer app", that one thing (besides gambling and drugs - not that there's anything wrong with that), that only BTC can get you.

You'll say "anonymity" or all the usual Libertarian things (not that theres anything wrong with that, either).  But what will make my Mom or Dad (both diehard union liberals) or my Grandpa (die hard mid western gun nut conservative) say "I got to get me some of those bitcoins so I can buy a xxxxxx".

It aint Alpaca Socks (cool tho they are).

Let's find that killer app.

we already have.

Get a divorce and all your coins go directly to X.

Anyone stupid enough to tell his wife how many btcoins he has deserves to lose them.

I need BTC to make quick, nearly feeless micropayments.

This is paramount if we want Bitcoin to succeed.

I don't think anyone "needs" BTC for normal purchases, just as you don't "need" prepaid credit cards, gold bullion or jewels.

The only peple that 'need' BTC are the people doing business over TOR. Everything there is sold with bitcoin.

If this is an argument for why bitcoins aren't useful, it is silly. I mean, "I need USD for X", "I need paypal for X", and "I need credit cards for X" are all only answerable with X = to pay for things at places that accept them. It is the same with bitcoin. I need bitcoin to pay for things at places that accept bitcoin.

while BTC.price != stable {
difficulty--;
}

OR

while difficulty > 1000000 {
BTC.price = BTC.price*(difficulty/1000000);
BTC.price++;
}

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.

Ah my bad. Didn't mean to go all serious on you then. My answer is I need bitcoins to become rich with just my graphics cards.
