+ - BitCoin gets futures market->

fireballrus writes: There is one more way to use your BitCoins rather than buying weed or socks. Not that long ago a Bitcoin Exchange called ICBIT almost quietly introduced futures market, obviously using Bitcoins as a main currency. Gold futures trades roughly at 137 BTC/tr.oz and Sweet Crude Oil at 7.3 BTC/bbl.
In fact, this may play a positive role in the Bitcoin economy which needs more ways to actually "use" coins instead of mining them.
