How can people in one breath call investors "suckers taking crazy risk with a nerdy fantasy currency" and in the same breath call them "unfair beneficiaries of an early adopter scheme" when their risk actually pays off?
No one stopped you from investing in or buying in bitcoins or getting in early. You didn't do it because you were averse to the risk. So, stop complaining about how it's unfair. (And, no one is stopping you now either.)
This is like a bailout in reverse: Take the risk that goes with speculation, but Lose you lose, and win you get accused of unfairness.
