Re: Self Interest, Public Interest

There's almost a desperate push in the US to get banks and investment houses to get involved in crytocurrencies at the moment, it comes in the form of recommendations that it should be "part of your portfolio" in articles for the less sophisticated investor, the sort that is convinced that the market will never crash (until it does). The investment people I work with won't touch the stuff because there's no way to quantify the risk; unlike ETFs, another virtual investment, there's nothing to tie the nominal worth to any expected value, its just pure pyramid.
