>> .what if the whole world adopts BitCoin?

A really good question. It means that those we think are "not smart" now will rule the next phase of our global system. It is a possibility but extremely risky to bet on it.

>> EU united their currency from several individual ones and they are doing great...more countries are thinking about adopting Euro which rivals US dollars now

I am not sure EU is doing great when Switzerland has voted to limit freedom of movement of other EU nations into the country. There are few that will think EU is doing fine at this point based on the currency unification. Without EURO, Greece would have avoided its problems. They will simply devalue their currency. But with none, no instrument to play.

>>  For those who were speculating on the market value of bitcoins, those proved to be good buying opportunities.

Provided you did not buy from Mt.Gox which just filed bankruptcy after losing millions of dollars.

I think they are for real. Even Wikipedia wants to get donations via Bitcoin. I am having a changed mind that no one can stop the movement.
