It's just symbolic, but it's still nice to see 2012 arriving just as Bitcoin hits 8,000,000 units.

The rollover should occur between 1700-1800 UTC.

Auspicious and not a little fishy...

http://blockexplorer.com/b/160000 was mined at 2011-12-31 18:13, only 32 seconds after block 159999.

And blocks are mined at roughly 10 per hour - almost double the normal average.

It's timed to do this on purpose, isn't it Smiley

Block 100000 came on 12-29-10.

I wouldn't say it's 'in the stars'. Bitcoin attempts to reproduce 50 btc every ten minutes, but it's pure chance. 30 seconds or one hour are both reasonable. If bitcoin had been mined exactly every ten minutes, then I think 8M would have been 19 January.
