The IMF hasn't been responsible for that since 1971. In today's floating exchange environment it would be politically impossible anyhow.

I have no idea why you would be posting this happily if your end result is a digital currency that is an alternative to your definition of fiat currency.

They are scared of a medium of exchange that can't be used to acquire a pack of chewing gum. People are using Bitcoins as investments, and the regulation as investments will come long before regulation as currency. This is evidenced by regulators already declaring Bitcoins would be treated as commodities.

I love when Wiki posts these articles, thinking "this'll show those haters", and then gets pummeled by respected MT Board regulars who have forgotten more about the financial world than he'll ever know.

Isn't this bad for your cause? Regulation of Bitcoins goes against everything that you think is so great about the currency...
