I must inform you that naughty bits coins are virtual; so, your bit tits for the blind won't work. The value of one naughty bitscoin [currency symbol "69"] is fixed at the price that Bill Clinton paid for the Grand Reserve Gurkha Cigar that he inserted into Monica Lewinsky's vagina.

This ensures stable valuation unlike precious metal coins (e.g. Islamic gold dinar) which fluctuate with metals market values. After all, who wants coins that are constantly changing in value? They're doomed from the start.

Thus, the value of the basic unit will be small enough for common use like real currency while versatile enough for larger transactions in the form of naughtykilobitscoins (K69), naughtymegabitscoins (M69), naughtygigabitscoins (G69) ... etc.

Of course, they won't be kept in virtual wallets, they'll be kept in virtual condoms for safety.

Do you want to invest in bitcoin? Or buy bitcoins? A major difference that even changes how that question can be answered.

Seems like a spam account.

As to the question, it's a commodity. To invest, you buy some and hope the price continues to rise, and sell them when you either need the cash, or think the price is going to fall.

Or invest in a bunch of computer hardware to mine them, and hope you get them fast enough to pay for it.
