In the meantime... the entire CryptoCurrency marketplace may need a `reserve currency' ready to pick up the slack (Paycoins perfect timing?) .... (no way right? wouldn't it be a coin with MUCH larger available coinage?) -- maybe Stellar will go to the STARS? (Moving hugely since the collapse... coins with value, real value will buck the collapse in general.) And of course, all of this could be due to Bitcoin's usage as a commodity by some in the richer element of society... which is seeing a HUGE collapse in some of their commodity holdings... so why NOT sell Bitcoin (to them)..... BTW, I BOUGHT at Coinbase today my largest purchase ever (0.12) at 186 - IMO, the bounce (to 400?) could be only days away.
