BITCOIN: TOO BIG TO FAIL
I bet they used to say that about the Knights Templar ... Until the first Friday the 13th rolled around.
Wow! Way to go SJ! Interesting observation when you think about the not inconsiderable similarities between the services offered by the two. Or their relative status in the eyes of the respective Powers That Be...

They're somewhat notorious for requesting "new game" by the simple expedient of flipping the table over...and then shooting their unarmed opponent.
Bitcoin holders better hope that doesn't turn out to be prescient on your part.
You guys are talking about an absolute totalitarian system. So... yeah... I completely advocate... I'll cut it there. Read my mind. Let your imaginations go to very, very dark places. Those places are very well lit.
When you want to restrict my ability to buy milk for my family, you deserve <insert depraved horror here />.

How much can you spend in France in cash? 3,000 euro? Nope. It's only 1,000 euro now. WTF?!? You can't buy a good oven for that. You can't buy a good computer for that.
The war on cash is on. The war on your freedom to buy things without being tracked is on.
This isn't rocket appliances
I want to scream.
