"@bitcoininfo: My son bought his first coin today #bitcoin" // funny
I have been using Bitcoin to introduce my 10 year old to the principles of economics- markets, currency, government mischief, etc- so today for his final exam we made a purchase of Bitcoin with his dog-walking money. He understands that it may go up or down, but still he is very excited about being involved in this market. For show and tell next week he is going to bring some material on Bitcoin to share with his class. This has been an excellent way to teach him about money, value, work, and investments. It's also a surprisingly fun father and son activity. He is already referring to himself as "a currency speculator." LOL.
