Of course it is. If you turn them into real money you're committing tax fraud at the very least.

It just doesn't break any laws that anyone cares about yet.
Not a winner anymore.

If I used my laptops's ****ty Graphics Chipset, it'd probably explode or something.
I don't even really have a proper "video card" persay.

Only if you don't declare your earnings.

...being able to exchange these for real money when they themselves are obtainable without spending money?

You think selling things you make is illegal?
No way dude, you're trolling me.

And so then yes the bubble burst.
As the story goes.

Hope nobody invested too much in this.

Science clear states that the more people know about something, the less it's worth.

I am almost certain science said this.

Therefore, by this logic, the only posibilty for the lately sucesfull Bitcoin was to crash,

Powered by science!

Does that mean there's still time for me to get in on this thing?

I don't know who that man is. I don't know what you are talking about. It is all lies.

Until this thing goes sour again. Then, yes, that is me.

(...In all seriousness I still think this is a bit of a bad idea for the long term. The currency is only worth as much in real money/goods as people are willing to exchange for it, and if enough people exchange a lot of real life goods for bitcoins, when the value of said coins goes down, I'm still concerned it's an investment that'll end up burning them badly. In the meantime, if you want to go about getting them via the free methods already mentioned, there's relatively little harm in that.)
