For example, while I've always been somewhat reserved about Bitcoin, I've come to believe that it is a wonderful thing to happen to the market. If a large enough number of people transitioned their faith from the Dollar to the digital currency, the free side of the market could finally begin to have meaningful influence on the monetary policy of, not only the united States, the entire world. Competition is a lovely equalizer.
