Rumor is this is what is driving extreme volatility in Bitcoin and other cryptos. One of the few outlets to sneak money out of China that you can't really clamp down on.

They've been trying ...though there is some spoofing going on in BTC land But anyway, yeah I was semi trying to convince my girlfriend to convince her parents to put money in BTC. They could have over tripled their money by now.

Webcam?

The last update on the Vista webcam was August 15 at 3pm. Does anyone know if the webcam is being shutdown or will it be replaced with another webcam? Thank you.

I work with a guy who invested $15K in one cryptocurrency and now has about $1.3M in it, not to mention having probably close to $2M now in bitcoin from less than $200K investment. Lucky bastard. Of course I think that thinking it will continue to climb and not fall again is weird. I'm guessing it'll probably have a big drop soon followed by another big gain past what it's at now afterwards.
