An island in Micronesia. A gold mine in Canada's Yukon Territory. Tickets to the 2014 Victoria's Secret fashion show in London. Those are just a few of the assets on offer at BitPremier, a website targeting bitcoin holders looking to unload some of their digital hoard.
...
Silbert started buying bitcoins in February 2013, when the price was about $22, at the urging of his younger brother Barry, chairman of SecondMarket Inc., a New York–based brokerage specializing in hard-to-trade assets.

Nothing earth-shattering here, but good publicity from Bloomberg.

And I quote " The number of listings on BitPremier took off when the price of a single bitcoin -- the controversial currency that exists only in cyberspace -- skyrocketed to $1,137 at the end of November 2013 from $12 at the start of the year.

After regulatory crackdowns around the world, the value of bitcoins dropped by more than half. However, even with the price fall, there are those sitting on bundles of bitcoins with very few ways to spend them. Others are finding it hard to obtain large quantities of bitcoins without moving the price in the still-nascent market. "

Do'nt you just hate it, when people use crack, when they write article on Bitcoin?

They pull information out of their ass, and post it online.
