bitcoin

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

John McAffee LOL

Look up his murderous home in San Pedro and Corazol drug lab. Belizean adventures lol.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Not yet, but it is interesting reading. I can see it growing in value as the trading network and user base expands, but I wonder if there might be a clampdown someday due to the organised crime element.

Still got to research some more, but it's also possible to make 2x, 5x, or 10x your money on stocks, so bitcoin is not the be all and end all.

When you hear that some criminals have used bitcoin, keep in mind that some criminals have also used USD/CAD.

Definitely. The more ways to earn the better! CME is starting bitcoin futures in a week or two and that should open it up to a LOT more people.

John McAffee, Trump, Boeser and Bitcoin rocks! :mex:

Interesting look at bitcoin and the power consumption needed to keep it going.

Whatever you do, always give 100 %!
Except when donating blood.
