Paypal founder Peter Thiel invests millions in Bitcoin

Peter Thiel invests millions in Bitcoin and in October said people are "underestimating" bitcoin and compared the digital currency to gold. "If bitcoin ends up being the cyber-equivalent of gold it has a great potential left," he said. His venture capital firm bought about $15 million to $20 million of bitcoin, and told investors that after bitcoin's surge in the last year, those holdings are worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Thats amazing if its true and could explain the big surge in prices with demand rising in many places at once.
