    Bitcoin has seen incredible increases over the last year and there are now those that are claiming that the bubble is about to burst and the currency plummet. Some of us still support the idea of a user owned system away from the reach of the financial establishment. We will not accept that Bitcoin is past it’s best. We will be sticking with Bitcoin and I am quite certain that Bitcoin will continue to rise more steeply than before.

    Bitcoin has seen amazing growth over the last year and there will be some who will claim that the bubble is about to end and the currency plummet. Those of us still support the idea of an independent system away from the control of the banks. We will not accept that the currency is past it’s best. We will be staying with Bitcoin and I am quite confident that it will keep rising faster than in the past.
