There currenly a fund for investing in Bitcoins, but SecondMarket. However, it's not as tightly regulated as common mutual funds.

Besides that there are plans to create a Bitcoin ETF: http://www.cnbc.com/id/101190181

Oh,  Censored! I've just realized who these guys are! The Winklevoss twins were the guys that came up with the
social networking idea before Mark Zuckerberg implemented it and launched Facebook! I have seen the movie called
"Social Network" regarding this case and I realised who they were only after looking at them and hearing their voice..  Grin
They actor that played their role did an amazing acting job.. Smiley

Quote from Wikipedia:
Quote:
Harvard students Cameron Winklevoss, Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra accused Zuckerberg of intentionally making them believe he would help them build a social network called HarvardConnection.com (later called ConnectU).[62] They filed a lawsuit in 2004, but it was dismissed on a technicality on March 28, 2007. It was refiled soon thereafter in federal court in Boston. Facebook countersued in regards to Social Butterfly, a project put out by The Winklevoss Chang Group, an alleged partnership between ConnectU and i2hub. On June 25, 2008, the case settled and Facebook agreed to transfer over 1.2 million common shares and pay $20 million in cash.[63]

Zuckerberg's counselor suggested that he should simply pay them like this case was a speeding ticket.. and she was right
considering the amount of money he earned afterwards.. So, these twins wouldn't let this opportunity pass like when they lost facebook..  Money

Looks like there's trouble at Mt. Gox and the bitcoin value plummeted in that exchange. $135?

Bitcoin is not good for your heart. If it doesn't have a relatively stable value then I don't see how it can be used as a currency, PTC world or not.

Yes, I have been following it (at a safe distance  Grin) I'm kinda glad I didn't jump into it

the last I heard the Mt Gox CEO resigned from the bitcoin foundation board

This whole mess is spinning out of control fast

It can be traded  Grin

I think I have been in the markets too long. I'm turning into a leather hided cowboy  Money

You know you've been in the market too long when you look at a chart like bitcoin and think, "I can make money at that."  Money eyes  Smiley

It's either that or you've turned completely nuts  Grin
Honestly, sometimes it seems like that chart is practicing bungee-jumping. Not to mention you can't apply technical analysis like you do on commodities, stocks or bonds.
This is so speculative that every bit of news can cause one heck of a change.

Remember when that fake news about Obama being shot make the USA markets crash for a couple of minutes? Imagine something like that applied to this market

Shocked

I've been taking cashouts at PV via BTC in the hopes of building up a bit of savings but this jumped over 13% in the last 24 hours! Something is happening in the BTC world

So the Chinese market is opening up to bitcoin again. That is potentially 22 trillion dollars worth of savings that is trying to exit the country.

So this is why BTC is up over $200 in a short while



Quote:
As of this moment, the total value of bitcoin is up from the $3 billion two months ago to a little over $5 billion. That means the ratio of Chinese deposits (at around $22 trillion) to bitcoin, is down to a far more "conservative" 4,400x.

WOW! BTC up $33 today as of this writing

https://www.coinbase.com/charts

Shocked

Some say this is connected to the Chinese money trying to get out of the country

This is looking even better in Canadian currency  Money

I still have a dream of one BTC going for $50,000  Cheesy
