Want to know about Bitcoins ?
A load of monkeys lived near a village.
One day a merchant came to the village to buy these monkeys.
He announced that he will buy the monkeys for $100 each.
The villagers thought that this man was mad.
They thought how can somebody buy stray monkeys at $100 each?
Still, some people caught some monkeys and gave them to this merchant and he gave them $100 for each monkey.
This news spread like wildfire and people caught more monkeys and sold them to the merchant.
After a few days, the merchant announced that he will buy monkeys for $200 each.
The lazy villagers who had not bothered before now ran around to catch the remaining monkeys!
They sold the remaining monkeys for $200 each.
Then the merchant announced that he will buy the monkeys for $500 each!
The villagers started to lose sleep! … They caught six or seven monkeys, which was all that was left and got $500 each.
The villagers were waiting anxiously for the next announcement.
Then the merchant announced that he is going home for a week. And when he returns, he will buy the monkeys for $1000 each
He asked his employee to take care of the monkeys he bought.
The employee was alone taking care of all the monkeys in a cage and the merchant went home.
The villagers were very sad as there were no more monkeys left for them to sell at $1000 each.
Then the employee told them that he will sell some monkeys back to them at $700 each secretly.
This news spread like wild fire. Since the merchant will now buys monkey for $1000 each, there is a $300 profit for each monkey.
The next day, villagers made a queue near the monkey cage.
The employee sold all the monkeys at $700 each.
The rich villagers bought monkeys in big lots and the poor ones borrowed money from money lenders and also bought monkeys!
The villagers took care of their monkeys & waited for the merchant to return.
But nobody came so they ran to the employee.
But he has already left too !
The villagers then realised that they have bought the useless stray monkeys at $700 each and were unable to sell them!
The Bitcoin will be the next monkey business. It will make a lot of people bankrupt and a few people filthy rich in this monkey business.
So there you are.
