Bitcoin is not a company, it's a protocol - an invention.

I'd embrasse a spellchecker before embrassing a made up currency that could go bang any day without warning.

On a serious note it would be an interesting idea, buy up some reserves on the quiet, then open the gates to the Bitcoin industry, try to become the silicon valley of Bitcoin companies, there's already a couple in Ireland anyway, and the recent regulation for digital currencies from the New York financial regulator was a bit more restrictive than many would like. It's a new industry looking for a home, what would Ireland have to lose by trying to capture it?

EDIT: Isle of Man already trying it http://uk.businessinsider.com/the-is...se-2015-3?r=US

All other currencies of course having the double whammy of not being made up, and not being at risk of going bang any day without warning?
All those not made up currencies that are impervious to collapse. Like the flangdoodle, and the skipablopo?

Bitcoin is quite capable of embarassing itself. Doesn't need our help.

People gave their bitcoins to an anonymous illegal drug market acting as an escrow. The anonymous illegal drug market stole them.

If you gave your euros to a junkie on O'Connell street who said he'd be right back with your product, but did a legger would you say it embarrassed the euro?

The lesson here is don't give your money to anonymous strangers, if you don't want to risk losing it.
