Don't most countries have strict laws regarding securities? Just how well are you guys doing?

Don't you worry about Bitcoin, let me worry about Bitcoin.

Bitcoins are more like commodities than securities.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

This made no sense to me at first. Now I see how Bitcoin's legal status means everything.

Don't you worry about Bitcoin, let me worry about Bitcoin.

Also there are no laws in the bitcoin exchanges, it is more of rules that the exchanges setup. It is great cause it is like if the SEC was a private sector and could foster better and strong rules.

Bitcoin doesn't have to worry.  I'd be more worried about the companies on GLBSE.
