Bitcoin buyers throw good money after bad

http://www.marketwatch.com

The issue is whether Bitcoin will ever be so widely adopted that it acts like a real, stable currency.

Bitcoin P2P Cryptocurrency

http://www.bitcoin.org

Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer network based anonymous digital currency. Peer-to-peer (P2P) means that there is no central authority to issue new money or keep track of transactions.
