I think it's definitely a damning indictment if an alleged currency gets used less than spacebux from a MMO or online platform, even a niche platform like SL.

Part of what is killing cryptocurrency is speculation. It doesn't just drive the price up, it drives it haywire. Currency must trade within a narrow band of values for it to be useful as a consistent store of value, and on that note, many cryptocurrencies are failing. The fever is also driving up the cost of using the currency as previously minute and insignificant transactional fees suddenly become significant due to the value of the currency they are marked in.

There are good things to be had in the technology underlying this stuff. but you will forgive me if I want it all to crash and burn as soon as possible so we can get a saner baseline.

You might want to let them know that Dell's pilot with bitcoin ended last year. As I noted in an update to our original announcement, we demand was too low to make it viable in the long run: https://blog.dell.com/en-us/we-re-now-accepting-bitcoin-on-dell-com/ #iwork4dell

Transaction volume doesn't reflect use though. A single transaction can have hundreds of outputs to many addresses. This is called 'batching', which is now being adopted by big exchanges as it is a more efficient way to send payments to many addresses (outputs) at once.

An example transaction can be found here: https://blockchain.info/tx/5a6495056fb06686ffe88324ef7c6041771a74cce97c87c8125b85c998382e61

13 outputs, 12 are most likely third party addresses, and 1 is a 'change' address (where the leftover amount is sent back to a wallet, but in a different address)
