    this is what is going to happen to Bitcoins because more countries are banning the use of it and more countries are opting for making their own crypto currencies ( eg. india , Britain etc ) so the bitcoin value will go down within a few years or the bitcoin bubble would burst and vanishes into thin air.
    #Bitcoins will become History within a few years

    Remember everyone, tulips are NOT conversions of exponential amount of raw electricity into unique letter / number combinations that can be uncensorably transfered to anyone in the world without a third party.
    Crypto is not in a bubble. It's in a gold rush.
