Euro banks warned off Bitcoin as Canada regulates it


Re: Er, isn't this like...

Except that:

- shares are more tangible than Bitcoin - if you own a share in Glaxosmithkline, you own a very small percentage of a load of offices, laboratories, drug stockpiles, patents... all things that exist and are of genuine value.

- shares pay dividends.

Shares may not work as a currency because they are too volatile, but they do work as an investment. Bitcoin doesn't work as either.
