Very informative. First thing that caught my attention is this. More than half of the bitcoins in circulation have not been used in transactions the past three months and about a third have not been used in the past year. These overall statistics constitute an estimate of the proportion of bitcoins in circulation which are held for “investment” purposes.

Any formal research is good research at this early stage but I wonder how the transaction volume data (i.e., size of average transactions, what they're used for, what transactions are used for daily spending, etc) may change when subsequent studies can pull data from more mainstream sources other than the gambling site (Satoshi Dice). I can't help but have a hunch that the people that spend most of their time on Satoshi Dice don't represent the entire BTC user population.

They keep calling it a scheme.It is a protocol, not a scheme. Nobody is carrying out a plan, at least nobody in particular. If you want to use the term that broadly then the Federal Reserve is a scheme... er wait.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Interesting to compare these initial reports with the relatively serious blockchain research going on these days at well established banking institutions.  They might still not be too keen about Bitcoin but the language shift to blockchain technology seems to be gaining traction.

I'm definately going to read all of it after reading the first few pages it really got me in.

Nice stats and graphs to support their points. I only don't like how they use news sites as references though..

It is negligible at the moment. In 10 years, the transaction volume could be match that of US dollar.

Normally must be something that must be celebrated by everyone which like bitcoin. I tell normally because I cannot imagine a study of bitcoin made with the aim to know better it in order to able to fight better it. After the rumors about the study of blockchain in collaborations with IBM come the study of bitcoin and a full paper about it from Federal Reserve. It must be enough the interests of Federal Reserve (having in mind that bitcoin is regulated in USA, so no risk for its existence as a legal one) to have satisfaction. But the full analyse given in this paper testify not only the deep interests of Federal Reserve for it (and even for blockchain because there are data and analyse for it too) but even the probability of the verification of USAcoin (like it is written in the article which can be found in the link below). It is not strange that one day exist the national digital coin of USA which can make possible more cheap transactions and more monetary discipline (like Milton Friedman predicted in him's papers).  Cheesy
