To me it looks like a modern day tulip mania, the fact that there are people in the hard money community that have embraced bitcoin.
A bubble is a bubble. The dotcom or the real estate bubble, there is a bubble in bitcoin. I think the reason people are buying bitcoins is because the think they are going to make money. They think the price is going to go up. It will keep going up until it implodes. And a lot of people are going to lose a lot of money in bitcoins. A small amount of people will make a lot of money but it will be paid for by a much greater amount of people who lose because they come at the end of the pyramid scheme. Wether we are at the end now, or wether it is going to keep going higher for months or years, I do not know.
