    Because of the popularity and sudden growth of BTC I think it would be a good idea to make a section just for BTC.

    Would help keep all the Bitcoin thread's under one wing also :)

    It would be great if there is a e currency section. Besides bitcoin, litecoin is also becoming popular now.

    No offence but I think they are just another trend which would die out soon as soon as the rate decreases..
    So, until and unless they become really popular, I think lounge is pretty cool to discuss about them.

    Litecoin may die off, but not BTC.

    What makes you say BTC will die off?

    BTC could die off due to ASIC mining, Litecoin will stay due to it being ASIC resistant for now until its more popular which it will

    eCurrency section will be more appropriate IMHO.

    With regards to bitcoins dying soon, here are some recent facts:

    1. Winklevoss twins switched to Bitcoins:

    2. PayPal president talks about Bitcoins:

    3. Bitcoin ATMs are coming soon to Cyprus and San Diego
    http://money.cnn.com/2013/04/04/investing/bitcoin-atms/index.html

    Moreover, there are plenty of start-ups around the idea, so the field isn't stagnating, and gets a new breed of dreamers every day.

    Agreed, I think such a section would be appropriate! Then we can also discuss other cryptocurrencies like Litecoin and Feathercoin

    I agree...need a section, regardless of what you think, just having all the discussion in one area would help.

    don't know about pandadog, but I hate it because of the money I could have made. I was so smug when it all crashed after Mtgox got hacked - only to see a year later that I could have earned over $10,000 for an outlay of under $500

    Make a section for cryptocurrency in general instead of doing it only for BTC or LTC.

    Ever since the US stopped allowing us to play online poker, I believe bit coin might start getting popular. So, it could be worth a shot getting into, at least having a little piece in it.
