    If you had purchased a crapload of Bitcoins in the beginning, you'd be very rich right now... maybe, sort of... or not. IDK

    Yep. Would have been good to have some bitcoins and then sell them to buy gold.

    Can you store weed for a long time or does it degrade?

    Great post Kyle, it added to my understanding.

    I think blockchain is the mechanicsm by which bit coin operates. Did anyone read the OP link, it tried to explain.

    Then there is bit coin mining..Duh, um, I think that is critical to the functioning and understanding of bit coin, but I don't quite understand it. What got me going on this OP was headlines that bit coin mining (which I think is peeps running their PC's to help maintain the bitcoin ledgers) uses immense electrical power which is causing or poised to cause environmental problems. Apparently there is a lot of it in Venezuela where the govt is a mess and power is mad cheap due to hydro electric
