    Then thats is just silly. If people want to trade and they cant use, say Bitcoin, because they missed the boat then they (the buyer and Seller) will find a currency both parties can trade. No business is going to limit their customer base only to the holder of a certain cryptocurrency.

    So we agree then that, at the moment, this is purely speculation and not an 'investment' at all.
    Gambling.
    I'm fine with that - do as you wish - just don't call it an investment (any more than buying a lotto ticket or visiting the casino).

    Yep, pension fund, Uni endowment funds and others are now buying the equivalent lotto tickets instead of investing

    Why isn't this raising more alarm bells?

    I think any investor looking to diversify their portfolio should have some exposure to crypto.

    Exposure to Lotto might be in order also.

    You dont grasp concepts that well... you act like a preschooler who has been bunking classes and then when your not completing homework tasks that you expect to be spoon fed....

    When people gamble they don't do so to lose - they expect to win.
    So in your book that is an investment.
    Go for it - fill your boots but crypto, until it has more stability, is speculation (gambling) pure and simple.

    It won't rocket up in value though.
    It's like a country issuing a new currency.

    What's your point and why do I have to keep asking this? Some random South African website talking about a scam. Great.

    Another step towards adaption - there will be lots of CC's but there will only ever be one BTC, well 21M BTC.

    Whether this be true or not, what we are seeing is the mainstream looking at using blockchain technologies, which all on this thread agreed was a good probablity. But to a large degree the cryptos and ICO's that the tin-hat brigade have been insulting the rest of us about are going the way of the dodo.

    If MarkZ wants his own crypto then he can have it, but I trust him not one millimeter.
