    Never understood the gold & silver thing though. Always figured that people would be more likely to deal in guns & food. And ammunition. And tequila
    i think these people are all the same they just use guns,food,drugs as a offline currency and bitcoin as there online currency for silk-road-market-place or other unlawful "FREEDOM" online activities .

    its just called: libertarian-anarcho-capitalism-cypherpunk

    these people are just people who think "resistance is NOT futile"

    You can't run a GPU business off of these stupid people though.
    Bitcoin is a payment / monetary system, it is not "economy".
    It does nothing beyond exchanging money and securing the stack using processing power of volunteers.
    The volunteer efforts are compensated from payment transactions.
    The amount of compensation is tied up to amount of virtual currency, so that the more people help secure the system, the less compensation they get and vice versa.

    Should you have further questions, do not hesitate to read Wikipedia article on "Electronic money".

    Right! And there is a multi-million-dollar-turnover business going on with bitcoins right now.

    Only naive and stupid people think you can not make good business with bitcoins.

    For example: "Bitcoin-based casino rakes in more than 300,000 profit in six months" http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2013-01/23/bitcoin

    Its just the new gold-standard for the "internet"
