Re: So much!
While I suspect not, it does make you wonder if we'll need to see a new generation of coin with a stronger backbone before a digital currency really becomes accepted.

Re: sigh
There's two sides to that (bit) coin though. The benefits of bitcoin like: instantaneous transfer, lack of fees, no requirement of middlemen, anonymity, are features that simply cannot be found anywhere in the banking system outside of cash, which is gradually going away. 

While of course there are sturdier ways to invest your money than by buying up lots of bitcoins, it shows real promise as a way of eliminating antiquated practices of institutions and governments harassing money out of people simply because they're too small to do anything about it.
