I and my companion (Peter Pup) have come across a very strange island.
The inhabitants call it “Bitcoin Island” and everyone here seems to be digging for virtual gold.
They don’t seem to find any virtual gold very often — so the price of the lumps they do find is very high.
It’s not clear who will take this virtual gold as payment for anything, so I guess they all just hope the price keeps going up.
Today there was a visit by some representatives of governments, who questioned whether this is all legal.
Nobody knows that answer to that, apparently, so I guess the digging will keep going on for a while.
