Just done my first day of not checking the price. Not checking until spring, feels much more normal. I don't even care about the price in terms of making money, just got addicted last year. I know I have Bitcoin that is enough for the moment.
Only concern is corrupt banks and exchanges, but presuming they will be coded out if they fuck about. Making Btc totally annonymous would take the banks out. They can't have something that can't be tracked. Otherwise, full steam ahead, no icebergs.
Kind of interesting

“The desire to have a non-sovereign form of currency has existed forever. Remember, [Bitcoin] came out of the depths of the  financial crisis, let’s see what happens next year. Let’s see if central banks in the U.S. and Europe can unwind this thing successfully and then see what people want to own,” — “Crypto King” Bart Smith, digital asset head at U.S.-based global trading and technology firm Susquehanna

Alex Mashinsky: What Decentralization Really Means http://offthechain.libsyn.com/alex-mashinsky-what-decentralization-really-means
Bitcoin is a protocol: A set of rules governing the exchange or transmission of data between devices. It's also a revolution, albeit quiet without guns and molotov cocktails. The banks et al, are scrambling to tame it, legislate and eventually will try to ban it, but they are too late. As value pours into Bitcoin, it will only be a matter of time before everyone will want to be holding Btc, and the best way to do that is to sell your goods for Btc. Once that happens, banks are no longer needed.

You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.
