Been away from Slashdot for a while now, When I come back in to take a look around at the new design I see a discussion I might like to get involved with.
Let me be simple.
Unbacked fiat currency most commonly traded from plastic cards via electronic device -or- Unbacked fiat currency most commonly traded via electronic device.
Unbacked fiat currency generated by the expansion of debt in the economy -or- Unbacked fiat currency generated by mining something that you can never hold.
Unbacked fiat currency wholly owned by an unaccountable private for profit untraded anonymous company -or- Unbacked fiat currency wholly owned by only those that use the currency.
The problem is not that bitcoin exists, the problem is that bitcoin had a space to exist into.
Please tell me this is not lost on the current slashdot generation.
