Last week’s poll asked how you use bitcoin.
The answers included: as a currency, as an investment, or both.
Here are your responses.
In total, about 155 of you voted (if you’re not already aware, we’re doing this new weekly poll, which can be found in the lower right-hand corner of all pages). We’d love to get some more participation!
15.5 percent (or 24/155) of respondents answered they use bitcoin as strictly a currency.
27 percent (or 42/155) of respondents answered they use bitcoin strictly as an investment.
The remaining 57.4 percent (or 89/155) of respondents said they use bitcoin as both.
Interesting results, indeed. But they’re not terribly surprising. While many in the community enjoy using bitcoin as a means to make payment, that’s not to say they can’t enjoy the benefits of using it as an investment vehicle.
Let’s move on to this week’s question, which involves the newly-elected Bitcoin Foundation board members. As we pointed out in a posting today, there’s been a bit of backlash (read the article about it here), so we think this is fitting.
We’ll go ahead an post the results next weekend for your review.
