Re: Isn't this

What's the benefit to you to using it to pay for stuff? How is it better than credit cards, debit cards or cash? If it is because it is (supposedly) "untraceable", why is that something that appeals to you?

If you're using them to pay for stuff, you're a speculator of some type simply by holding them for weeks/months, unless you're buying the bitcoins shortly before using them.
