BitCoins is a technology that will eventually threaten their power and ultimately relevance. Do you really believe they're interested in learning what good it can do for the people?! The only reason I can think of why the CIA wants to learn more about it so that they can better figure out how to control it. That's all they're interested in. Control.
Who knows? Maybe even those guys of the CIA could be overwhelmed by the possibilities of bitcoin, and they could start to think the world in a different way.
Inside a CIA agent, there is a human being with a beating heart and a brain still capable of dreaming.
Ok that was my peace and love moment. Won't happen again.
