Well, OK, then, investing, or speculating, or whatever you want to call it. But you can do any of those things without having to trust someone else to hold the bitcoins for you. You're basically giving your money to some random guy on the Internet, just because he pinky-swears that he'll give it back to you when you ask. Why would anyone be surprised when he doesn't?
