Hello all,

I'm hearing more and more about Bitcoins every week, some good and some bad.

Some poker rooms now have it as a currency and you can even buy a pint in Ireland now using Bitcoins (that's the good bit)

I was just wondering if any of our members have any experience of using Bitcoin and would they recommend getting involved in it?

As crypto currencies go, I think Sklansky Bucks have a safer long-term future.

To me it looks like a high risk monetary currency.
It is accepted by some, while it is denied by others, so it's kinda in a financial gray area worldwide.
I like it's fundamentals for anonymity, although the fair argument of money laundering could come up.
Congratz to the early investors, who made a ton of bucks, but I wouldn't be so sure about investing now.
As for poker and bitcoins, any new currency would bring more money on the tables.
