Wouldn’t they be foolish to explore it to some degree? This is hardly evidence of anything.
It appears it’s starting to snowball some. It is gradually being adopted by more businesses.

Ask Mr. Greenberg over at Forbes. I think just as Overstock let the cat out of the bag and then had to act before getting beaten to the punch. With Google... Yahoo won’t be far behind.

What does google sell?
Well, they bought Motorola. And just this month the guys at Nest, the ones that make thermostats and smoke detectors, for $3.2B (yes $B). All connected together, and now talking to google servers and mining data.

As far as I’m concerned, google is the just the public, commercial face for the NSA. Not to mention that they’re better funded, and have far less oversight.

Your correct, this Bitcoin thing is going nowhere./s
Are bitcoin and other ecoins prognosticating the failure of world economies. Is it digital gold? If there is a collapse what will this be worth?
No, there will be a massive redistribution of wealth, just not what our handlers had in mind.
Any collapse in the current counterfeit fiat currency will be no fault of Bitcoin.
The Fed is pumping out $80,000,000,000.00 a month. That is approximately 8 times the market cap of Bitcoin. This is unsustainable and any blame should fall at the feet of those responsible. Mussolini come to mind.
