The weird dreams I sometimes have... the ones I can mention in nice company (or even among outlaws like myself), I mean.
A few days ago I dreamed Bitcoin was at $2077 and someone donated 20 of them to me. Of course, in my dream, my mathematical abilities were on par with my waking mathematical ability, and I figured it totaled million$.
Yes, in the past I have also dreamed of cash, precious metals, and other treasures falling into my lap, so this is just a new version of the same old dream.
But, speaking of Bitcoin... I really am amused at the people having conniptions over other people choosing to use Bitcoin. Personally, I will use FRNs, silver, gold, Bitcoin, or trade goods to get what I want or need. And I have used each and every one of those forms of "money" at various times. I won't accept payment I don't want, and I would never expect anyone else to, either.
I don't totally understand how Bitcoins are mined or created, because that involves math and programming- 2 things I am not great at and don't have the ambition (or time) to really practice. But, I am not an expert on gold mining and refining and minting, either. That doesn't make me scared of gold. Yes, I wish I had bought a bunch of gold when it was really cheap, but I'm not going to insult people who own gold simply because they have more than I do.
I was highly amused when the story broke where the expert was calling Bitcoin a "Ponzi scheme". By making that association he is lending a lot of undeserved legitimacy to actual Ponzi schemes (even the "participate at gunpoint" Ponzi scheme called "Social Security").
I never started accepting Bitcoin in order to get rich. Or even to profit from having them. I did it to have another monetary option available to myself. It has worked and I am satisfied with that option.
If you don't like Bitcoin, I have a link on the side that will allow you to get rid of the ones you might have.
