Bitcoin is over, it's stretched out like a 60 year old hooker. We can no longer mine a currency with flaws like network inefficiencies and security. We can start a new bitcoin network, migrate to namecoin or wait for the next iteration of Bitcoin. To save this market is like trying to put a cloud inside a cup.
There is no crash, and many new networks have already been started.
We achieved parity with every national currency on the planet, and then people started playing gold-games with bitcoin instead of e-gold, so what, turns out even now we are still at or above parity with every national currency on the planet despite all the crap about crashes.
Meanwhile we also have umpteen other cryptocurrencies the gold-game players have not even jumped into yet though I guess we can expect them to start being subjected to this same kind of game-playing any time now.
Luckily some of them actually had games in mind from the get-go though I suppose some people might consider it unfair that players who do not even have a planet one can reach with one's warpbattleships to nuke can effect the value of one's currency...
