    i've been getting into bitcoin, and i wanted to see who else is as well, and what you guys think about it.

    it's a online digital currency that is transfered through a p2p network, so there is no centralized banking, like fiat currencies (dollar, euro, yen, etc.).

    there's no transaction fees, and can easily be made anonymous.

    to learn more:

    bitcoin.org

    bitcoin wiki

    i'd like to hear some feedback from NT economists on how the currency will fare, as well as market speculations.

    not so much the silk road, as a currency in heavy deflation. there's money to be made right now, but not for long, i don't think.

    Gotcha. I for one think BC is an excellent system. I do not like dealing with banks and I'm hoping a lot more people catch on to this outside of the dark net. I can't speak on the economic side because I'm not well versed on the subject but if you have any insight I'd like to read it.

    And yes you can buy basically everything with it. Everything.
