BitCoin Buyers See a $420 High, Just the Start - Real Time Insight

Maybe most of you have heard of BitCoin and just figured that its something that is beyond your reach or just not something you should care about. I am about 70% in that camp, but there have been a few things that have swayed me to take another look at it.

When I listened in to a presentation on the subject, I heard James Altucher say that adoption of this digital currency was inevitable. After hearing that I figured I should learn a bit more about it.

Like most things, I decided to put off that education for a while, but then I started seeing tweets about an explosion in the price if one BitCoin per USD. That almost woke me up.

Then I saw an idea that Conor Sen borrowed from Nemo_incognito - which was to say that BitCoin has become a pure play on Chinese money laundering.

Given what we (sort of) know about the shadow banking system in China and its inevitable crash and wealth destruction potential in China, it's a no brain to turn your Chinese Dollars into BitCoins ASAP.

So while we have been thinking about learning where BitCoin is or where its going, the Chinese that see the inevitable have been bidding BitCoin up from $130 not too long ago to nearly $400.

Lest you think there aren't happy endings to this story, you should check this out . A man buys $27 worth of BitCoins, 5,000 of them to be exact, and a few years later its worth $800K+. 

My questions are:

Are the Chinese going to slow their roll into the digital currenecy now that we have all caught on to what is going on?

and will BitCoin do a round trip ( $800K+ head back to $27)

Or will it go to $1M like Henry "Amazon is worth 20x its price" Blodgett said. (In all fairness, Blodgett just said it could go to that price, not that it WILL)
