"The Swiss Parliament is considering a postulate that asks for bitcoin to be treated as any other foreign currency. The goal of the postulate, introduced by representative Thomas Weibel, is to eliminate ambiguities and increase legal certainty related to bitcoin."

They can't seize it, so if they are willing to buy massive amounts on the free market, that is ok by me!

the only people in Switzerland who know about bitcoin are “geeks, criminals and special police units” and that there is currently very little or no public discussion about digital currency.

some good news if you ask me.  Something like this could get some attention of potential Swiss investors for sure.  I'd like very much to see many BTC ATM's all over Switzerland.

Swiss are not up to an innovation when it comes to money. They like their money where it was hundreds of years, in banks.

So it basically mean allowing Swiss Banks mantaining Bitcoin accounts as a next currency ? It could open Bitcoin to fractional reserve banking Sad but also 100K euro equivalent Bitcoin protection if the bank falls Smiley

This qualification as foreigner currency or the german one of private currency are the only ones that make some sense.

Chine already bought down it to this level... I don't think it'll cause a big dip in price any further may be 300 but not below that but if some good news comes out bitcoin will recover to some extent..!
