    The main point of my diary is that there are all these charlatans out there issuing new cryptocurrencies somehow hoping that somehow, magically I guess, their currency is going to somehow become widely accepted.  You and your bills have the same problem: Who's going to use it? It ain't going to happen.

    In the case of SolarCoin, there is a real motivation for people to use it: encouraging the production of solar energy.  I think SolarCoin will make it, and I am putting real money into that idea.  I may lose it all.  My loss obviously.

      more from this post and these discussions from you, Eric, Lepanto and others than any in a very long time.

      But, now I'm reminded of that old cartoon, when the kid in the classroom raises his hand, and asks, "teacher may I be excused? My brain is full."
