    Bitcoins 1st Dec 17 at 12:59 PM
    I just saw a link on Facebook about starting a Bitcoin account.

    Does this work?

    How does it work?

    Has anyone here used it?

    To all those sceptics (or haters?), I dabbled a bit earlier this year (about $1000 worth). Since then I've spent about $2000, and every time I spend some the balance goes up.

    If it's a bubble I don't care. I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts. I've already spent my initial deposit twice over, and now that mainstream investors have started to take notice, the price is going up even quicker.

    I often point out to people that it's not an investment, but compared to going down to the bookies and blowing it all on the 3.30 at the local course, this has been one heck of a ride, and it ain't over yet.

    It may crash one day, but then it may keep going for years. With modification there's no reason it can't stay the number one crypto, and while it's there I've got myself a magic money pot to enjoy using.
