Is this for real?

"Cyprus announced today that they are replacing the euro with Bitcoin,"




Effective Monday, any euros held by Cyprus residents can be exchanged for the digital currency at a rate expected to be around 1 Bitcoin : €72. That works out to about $93 US and is expected to stay stable or even rise in the coming weeks due to increased demand.

Sounds like an April fools joke to me.
Unless the big banks have found a way to profit from bitcoin, I don't see it becoming anyone's national currency.


ETA: Yup, read the 3rd paragraph. Zee poor grandmothers with no internets.

Good catch.... thanks

As Black Swan author Nassim Taleb recently said "bitcoin is the beginning of something great: a currency without a government, something necessary and imperative."

I agree.
