Bitcoin: future or fad?

In May 2010 a programmer from Florida traded 10,000 units of a fledgling virtual currency. A volunteer from England received Bitcoins and in return bought two pizzas using a credit card. This amount of Bitcoins is worth more than £30 million now.

Could there be a medium of exchange that is not regulated by a state or an international organisation? Is this the way to fix a broken economy? Is Bitcoin people’s money or it’s just a fad?

Join the Economics + Finance Society at LABS for a thought-provoking discussion with Izabella Kaminska (Financial Times, Alphaville).
