The reason I would never invest in bitcoin is that no matter how many times and by how many people explain it to me, it still makes absolutely no sense and no one can give me a valid reason why a bitcoin is better than a dollar. Only aspect of utility I see in it is that it's ananymous and untraceable. So basically it's good for illegal payments if that's your thing...

If you buy $100 today, it will still be worth $100 in 6 months
If you buy 100 bitcoins today, who knows how much it will be worth in 6 months
