Now that I am seeing more and more places accept BitCoin, and hearing more and more research about it. I think I am going to consider buying a small amount of Bitcoin on a monthly basis (maybe 0.5-1.5%).
I have been doing a lot more international travel now, and if I were to get somehow screwed out of access to my money (mugged) or lost all of my accounts, it would be a nice fall back to have a little something. Also, incase something happens to the US economy, it would be nice to have a fallback on some money that is not directly tied to the USD (although still affected).
I also like the idea that with Bitcoin, no one earns any money off of the transaction, and really want to believe in that system, instead of Visa/MasterCard/Paypal/Amex/or another middle man broker always effecting what I buy by a few %.
Anyone have any small scale bitcoin purchase plan that they are following? Large scale? Total distrust in the Bitcoin system?
I think now that the mining craze it over, and the currency still exists, that we could all benefit from some constructive discussion.
