Has anyone ever seen...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Has anyone ever seen...

Post by Artisan » Fri Feb 15, 2019 10:18 am

...a Bitcoin in real life? Or any other form of cryptocurrency?

Everyone (almost) is talking about Bitcoin and its roller coaster history.
How filthy rich one would be if bought decades ago at 0.000 something a piece and sold it at its peak of +20K.

What interests me the most who has actually physically handled one?

You know, roll the coin through your fingers, flip it to decide which team has the ball, buy a 0.50$ beer on Str. 51 at 5am or a pizza half hour later.

Myself, never saw one. So if you would like to kill my curiosity with a cat and you have handled one yourself respond with "miauw", if not a "woef/wraf" would suffice.

thx

Surely trolling - it is a virtual currency.

Oh and, abandon ship anyway.

Nice pic... Never physically seen a coin outside of pics though. If it starts getting produced, isnt it then a hard currency and fall under the same traps as other currencies?!?!

Not really, genuine question.

Oh and, abandon ship anyway.

That, I agree upon.
