well, this experiment is gaining traction “…it’s bigger than anyone expected. And many people will tell you that the emergence of a virtual global money supply beyond the reach and control of any government is very real and that it’s time we take it seriously.”

Until there's some semblance of credibility in this currency and its repositories and exchanges, Bitcoin is nothing more than an experiment and a toy and, as already noted, a blackmarket, possibly terrorist-supporting, means of exchanging currency for (illicit) goods and services.

Hi

We are playing with/ testing bitcoin on our platform, but haven't decided yet on it as we want to create a reward program for our users. Any thoughts on the current state and/or future of bitcoin?

 

Check out https://coinbase.com/ for all things bitcoin related. 

According to them US$4m is traded using bitcoins per day and the price is going up - check out https://coinbase.com/charts
