Well this is interesting, finally getting some intelligent commentary from the main media outlets now, I also saw CNBC just now asking some UBS guy about Bitcoin when they were discussing the Turkish Lira this morning.

It's been a pretty exciting year so far already as far as stories, announcements and adoption is concerned.

Now, about the price...

The price as it is, is amazing, anything more and you risk scaring people especially if it starts bouncing further and further, what we need is for it to level off or go up more smoothly, I actually reckon the most it will go is in line with Gold myself.

The fact that Bitcoin is entering into these conversations on national media outlets is important. Bitcoin is now part of the financial lexicon, its just a matter of time before live quotes are flashing up on TV somewhere. Having tracked this since 2011, didn't think we would be at this point so soon.

2014 is going to be a rather pivotal year for Bitcoin, I think.

Today Bitcoin is accepted by a small number of retailers, and David Woo, head of global rates and currencies research at BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research, believes that most do so simply for the publicity it earns them.

"Companies like Victoria's Secret are probably using it to brand themselves as hip," he says.

Suppose it's as good a reason as any, but why not accept it if they use a payment processor where it's immediately turned to fiat so there's no risk with the price fluctuations, which is stated as a worry in that article?
