Pro-BTC or Anti-BTC?

So, some dialogue has been going on in certain circles whether people are “pro-Bitcoin” or “anti-Bitcoin”.

Given that I’ve got this live Bitcoin exchange rate graph on my site, and I am something of an enthusiast, I’ll weigh in.

Do factions exist in BTC

Bitcoin is just a new technology. It’s just a tool. The first time someone decided to do a trade with a medium of exchange like gold, (rather than barter for gold because gold is specifically what he wanted) he was an innovator. He introduced something to make the world a better place. He was not necessarily “pro-gold” or “anti-gold”; He simply figured out a new way of doing things, as a means to an end.

Similarly, I am not pro-Bitcoin or anti-Bitcoin. Am I excited about its potential? Sure. However, this is not about fighting or creating artificial groups like “pro” or “anti” camps. Vehicles make our lives better. Microwave ovens make our lives better. Air conditioning makes our lives better. “Pro” or “anti” has nothing to do with it. I advocate Bitcoin adoption by individuals and businesses because of what it can do. It is a tool; it is a means to an end, just like advocating the use of cars, because it improves our lives.

Bitcoin Gone Up!

Dang! I saw Bitcoin go up to an exchange rate of 15.75 USD to 1!

I got onto Bitcoin about 20 months ago and it’s become so much easier to use Bitcoin. I remember that Bitcoin’s value took a hit after I got my first Bitcoins, but the value changes from time to time and went up a bit afterward. So many more things have been done with Bitcoin since its inception in 2009. I always keep my Bitcoin address on my contact page:
