Euro banks warned off Bitcoin as Canada regulates it

BitCoin is only the start of the private currency game...

We cannot trust state currencies, they are less stable and more crooked than these "new" currencies, and what is more the increasing speed at which cash is being turned into a pariah, even more private people are going to enter the game.

Just like everything that the state (mis)handles, once it is part of their "responsibility", which of course they stole, on the basis that the king was the government... A classic example of confusing your own money with that which belongs to the people. Money is only a trusted medium of exchange...

...So why should we trust the least trustworthy among us any more than the new kid on the block?
