So you are saying that individuals should not pursue personal gain, but rather they should refuse to exchange money for other valued items at a variable exchange rate because it hurts the market.
What I am saying is people should stop trying to speculate on the future price of a currency in order to realize profit. Speculate all you want on assets for all I care, because I won't buy any of your over-inflated assets. But when you inflate and deflate the actual currency with speculation, it pisses me off, because I have to conduct business with the stuff. You don't have that issue to worry about.
Speculation is not productive, causes boom-bust cycles, and detracts from the real purpose of the bitcoin project. I.e an alternative monetary system. NOT the same one again, packaged slightly differently with a techno-ribbon perched on top.
Ok, you have convinced me that I should no longer speculate on the value of bitcoin. Since I have no other use for a virtual currency, I will be getting out of bitcoins alltogether. I will continue to buy my groceries with dollars because that's what I'm paid in and that's what the supermarket accepts.
I'm glad I have convinced you. We don't need people who have no use for bitcoin other than speculation. Now I can go to sleep happy.
If you realize in the future that there are many purposes for bitcoin other than speculation, remember that you can still earn those coins in a productive way by providing goods or services in exchange for them without breaking your promise not to speculate any more.
