Congratulations, you're the proud owner of...

Some maths*

When buying at peak (bubble) value:

You have a place to live if you buy a house

You have a stake in a company if you bought shares

Even if you buy gold there's always the possibility that you can make something out of it

What can you do with a cryptocurrency that's too volatile to be used as an actual currency?

In regards to the EU (and the actual article), to say I'm not their biggest fan is a massive understatement but this reads like they want legislative parity with other forms of transactions, which seems perfectly reasonable.

What do you expect them to do?
