    A fool² is easily parted with his money.

    Surprised no one has managed to obtain their coins yet.

    No doubt they'll have takers though if they can get it through.

    Pair of twits?

    They may be very nice people, but their actions to date indicate to me that they are clueless and so detached from the real world as to have not a clue what to do with themselves. Fortunately, they have loads of cash, so getting a real job isn't necessary.

    Another pension plan down the drain

    So for US $ they are selling shares in a 'trust' that trades in a crypto currency? Just when you thought these tech IPOs couldn't get any ****ing stupider. Only winners here are the Winkelvoss twins. Anyone else who dabbles in a company that dabbles in a crypto currency will just get their fingers burnt. No doubt the finest minds in financial 'investment' will have a spin on this roulette wheel
