I'm just curious, as I'm sitting here watching bitcoinity website and seeing that bitcoins are on the rise again, does anyone here in Thailand, Bangkok are into bitcoins?

 

I really love the concept behind it, the fact you can send "value" to anywhere in the world so quickly, and FREE!

 

Just curious if anyone here owns them, or what is your opinion on them in general?

 

I've seen lots of nasty threads about opinionated bitcoin people, on each side of the fight, lets try to keep this fresh, fun and non violent hehe :)

I love bitcoins. Last week I bought a few bitcoins from Coinbase

 

Love to see the price rising. I hope the Winklevoss Twins, and Virgin Atlantic dude are right about these things! Really are awesome!

Holy shit, almost reached $700 a few days ago!!!!

 

Also I see threads on some forums and Craigslist where people are selling homes, websites, cars, and many things, and are only selling, accepting only bitcoins. That shows this thing really might be a thing of the future, these people actually don't want cash, they only want bitcoins!!!

My grandson in U.S. told me the U.S. Federal Government auctioned off 30,000 of these bitcoin things.

 

Anyone know if this is true? That must have been a huge transaction!!!

I read about this recently too. It's true! Coindesk covers the story: http://www.coindesk....itcoin-auction/

 

It's actually the US Marshals who auctioned off all those bitcoins, supposedly to just 1 buyer! BIG MONEY! balla balla! hehe

NewEgg.com and supposedly Expedia.com now accept bitcoin payments :)

I'm very excited for the future of this currency :)

What a wild ride, down to $275 today, and now bounced back up to $315 in a matter of few hours.

 

This is a wild, WILD bitcoin ride!

Anyone heard about this fire of a million dollar bitcoin mining rig? http://gizmodo.com/a...tion-1655981855

 

Looks like some expats lost quite a lot with it. (unless of course they weren't making anything, and had some kind of insurance, and had an "accident"?) hehe

It almost reached $1300

 

I hope some of you people on Bangkokforum have seen this thread years ago and bought bitcoin at those low low rates!!!

 

The Winklevoss twins ETF ruling is coming soon (they own Gemini.com)

March 11, 2017 is the SEC ruling for the ETF http://etfdailynews....ss-bitcoin-etf/ this would be HUGE HUGE for bitcoin holders
