    Can anybody offer any advice on this in general. Is it worth buying?

    A guy from my work has just left as now starting to work with Bitcoin. He is an it technician so he said he can make major money with it.

    Basically what im trying to get at is there a way to make big money with these and how

    Its getting more like a ponzi scheme all time. Some people are going to seriously get there fingers burnt before long, of course on flip side those that bought early are going to make some serious money if they haven't already done so

    I personally think it's a bit late in the game for Bitcoin. I know some people have said they think it will keep going.

    Personally I'm keeping my eye on Ethereum as an alternative. There's lots of people suggesting this could reach the same value as Bitcoin, but it's currently worth a lot less.

    only thing that's on the blockchain are numbers, there is nothing to link or trace this to a person
