Ah - mystery numbers and tulips. Gotcha.
Oh well, I guess the more than 1000 coin projects won't work, including the work being done by Kodak and Goldman. Had I sold my miners and bought tulips, I wouldn't have been able to put a 1/3 down payment on my car last week.
Y'all are too funny.
Andy I think that's a bit unfair considering I was responding to your story which consists largely of someone picking numbers out of thin air.
However, for those who must have internet sources:
Compare to this chart based on US transactions:

This should make it clear enough that Bitcoin is in the parts-per-million range when discussing transactions on a world scale. Is that worth terawatt-hours of electricity?
Congratulations on your cryptocoin profits. Fortunes were made in tulips as well.
