True, but anyone who exchanges actual goods for the currency is making an investment of sorts. Not actually saying this'll lead to some kind of drastic bubble burst, but it's just something to keep in mind.

When you buy things with the coins, the person you're buying the things from is buying the coins.

Beats me as to why anyone would want to buy them...but hey, whatever.

Go to the silk road.

No, really.

There is an ACTUAL conversion rate for that.

Uh....isn't this, I dunno, illegal or something?
I'm pretty sure this violates some form of law in some country, being able to exchange these for real money when they themselves are obtainable without spending money?
