They could never be like normal currency because they are infinitely divisible and always getting rarer. Normal currency has inflation and usually loses value if you just hang onto it, but bitcoin has deflation and can be divided into smaller pieces. Of course it can lose value, I'm just saying it's not like our normal currency.A part of the draw of bitcoins was the fact that they are not taxable. If the US, UK, and the other major countries tax them as well, they will just ordinary money- that is ridiculously unstable.
Well, I didn't make a loss but I wish I had got more In 2012 you could talk about them in public and people who were technically inclined would know what you meant, before that not so much.Dang, to think if you guys still held those bitcoins (Not planning on reviving a dead chat), but it was cool that people were dabbing into it in 2013
