Not convinced anyone is spending bitcoins. People may be buying them - but most are keeping them as an investment.

If it were a usable currency it would have a stable value. It is really more like a dotcom stock. (aka "magic beans" "pet rock" "real estate can never go down in value" "ponzi scheme").

When they accept my monopoly money, I'll be excited. Until then, skeptical.

Untill anyone can tell me whos in charge of bit coins and the actual value I'm skeptical too. If you google bitcoins, you will see there's issues on this.

Probably the worst way to turn a bitcoin but it would be a fun way to let go. I've found owning bitcoins to be incredibly stressful. More stressful than any other kind of financial deal I've ever been involved in. Made money, not nearly as much I could have but a decent amount. Have a few left and just being done and unloading them at a resort is really tempting.

Bitcoin comes across as a kind of made-up artificial currency run by self serving shadowy figures. Just like the Fed.

Wow, I need to get out from under my rock more often. I have never heard of Bitcoin before. Very interesting.

Considering I have several different versions of Monopoly, I would be interested to see these resorts accept Monopoly money. Maybe then I could afford a REAL luxury suite for once!!!
