What is it? – quick video. pretty sure I’ve sent this before:
Coinbase, a legitimate place to buy them with USD. I wish I could buy *lots* more!
Watch the Network – watch ’em being bought in real-time. you can watch china gobble them up at night and then USA starts in the morning.
I traded all my bitcoins for litecoins. I’d say the 3 top crypto-currencies now are Bitcoin(BTC), Litecoin(LTC) the PeerCoin(PPC) right now.
In the future, I think Bitcoins will have the highest values and be used for large purchases, cars, houses, computers etc… You can divide them down to 8 decimal places. They are a little slower to ‘confirm’ the transaction on the network. The Litecoin network verifies transactions much faster.
