    Here you go.

    http://blockchain.info/charts/tx-trade-ratio
    I'm assuming that shows an average ratio of 8-10 trades for currency to one trade for something else.
    How does that compare to the ratio of forex transactions to 'real' transactions for normal currencies?

    I believe that is what this shows. There was a blog linked to this metric that explained it was meant to gauge the level of speculation. Here's total transactions per day: https://blockchain.info/charts/n-transactions

    it would probably lean to the opposite unless you omit common day to day transactions and look at only high dollar item purchases, and even then I dunno.

    This thread had 75% of people making rational decisions. It was never a good currency to start with, the speculative bubble is just a whole other game.
    Buying at $4/BTC would have been a rational decision.
    In retrospect maybe - at the time people were like "what is it even for?"

    Quite posisbly. I know a friend who had a big plan to rig up a mining box was unable to make his get rich quick scheme work out because all the cards sold out.

    If you have the right card I'm sure you could get a free upgrade to something less good at mining.

    The only people mass GPU mining for Bitcoin are Botnets.

    Even if you forget about ASICS, FPGA's are way better than your plug in and play cards.

    The other half being stupidity. You can tell, the exchanges that got robbed and then tried to rebuild were not inside jobs, they were just fucking stupid people that dont know shit about security.

    House for sale only for buttcoins, first possible buttcoin atm, a whole 6 businesses take them in Perth, etc.

    Note that according to real estate insiders the Perth house was valued at 1 - 1.1 million max at auction.

    The article gives you a glimpse inside the door at the people using the stuff.

    Edited to add. I just noticed...

    Perth businessman Bret Treasure, 53, chairman of the Australian Web Industry Association and a board member of Bitcoin Australia, believes it's the first bitcoin house sale in Australia.
    Is that a real name or is that a wind up???
