I've heard a gentleman say that if Bitcoin were to reach $1000 per coin that would only be .36% of the US economy. Where will Bitcoin stop? How much can it consume?

If these statistics are true, it would be reasonable to say that a measly investment of 10 Bitcoins or so today will be a great retirement fortune tomorrow. :O

Why limit your figures to the US economy? Anyway, it depends on how much economic activity is done with Bitcoin, so it's hard to predict where it will end up.

Well, the world runs on the US dollar at the moment. It is the international standard -- well -- until it fails.

"The world" runs on the US Dollar, so you only compare to the US economy?

For the sake of simplicity, yes.

All the gold ever mined from ancient times is worth about 8 trillion USD at the current market prices.

Facebook (which will probably be uncool and likely much less popular in less than decade) is apparently worth 50 billion.

So if Bitcoin becomes as "valuable" as Facebook, that would equal $2381 per bitcoin.

....Heh, one problem.

That $50 million number is arbitrarily assigned by investment companies. Who knows how much all Facebook shares would actually sell for.

However, that goes for anything.

World Economy/21million = big number (like, bigger than 100,000)
