2012 is the year of the dragon in the chinese calendar.
"... But of all the Dragon years, the 2012 Water Dragon is most likely to bestow the Chinese Five Blessings of harmony, virtue, riches, fulfillment and longevity, adding even more weight to the growing belief that 2012 will be about breakthroughs, not disasters."http://blog.californiapsychics.com/blog/2010/05/2012-year-of-the-dragon.html
I predict big, positive breakthroughs for humanity in this one.
Bitcoin being one of them, but also Ron Paul, Free Energy/Cold Fusion, revelations of big secrets and a fundamental change in consciousness being more of them.
It's going to be a great year!
