Bitcoin currency valuation through the roof

Glad to be the first to post this.  The headline is that a man who purchased $27 of bitcoin peer-to-peer digital currency in 2009 and forgot about it discovered that it’s now worth $886 000.

Also, cheers to Vancouver for having the world’s first bitcoin ATM (link in article).  There are lots of fascinating implications to this development, although it seems a little volatile for a reliable store of value at the moment.  I also wonder how long it can stay peer-to-peer if it really takes off, especially with concerns about money laundering.
