No they won't.
Monday's opening might be interesting though.

The three biggest draw backs are volatility(through speculation), acceptance as currency and conversion into traditional forms.

I look for a slight rebound in the very short term with a downward trend as more markets cry foul.
"Currency" is in the purview of Government. They will not abrogate that right.
I look to China.

I knew it would happen to both cryptocurrencies and J-pop but never once suspected both at the exact same time.

What is it today is the question. What it will be on Monday takes skill and training to ascertain.

They should do this kind of thing with the USD.  I think it would help it to be taken a bit more seriously as a credible currency.

Watch Elon Musks' twitter feed some time.  It inexplicably has hordes of people literally begging him to accept some random cryptocurrency as actual money.  It'd be funny if it weren't so damned sad.

"Hey Elon, I just wanted to ask you to please accept IBS.Clownfart.Cryptocurrency as actual money, because I believe that my speak-and-spell running this program that generates clownfarts out of nothing makes me feel like I've earned a car or powerwall or tunnel boring rig or something."

There's also the issue that what people are actually buying is just part of the set of solutions to a mathematical puzzle.

More like Japan will pick up on and exploit what ever the latest fad is.

It's kind of scary how most of the hundreds of billions of dollars poured into this pyramid scheme are going to end up in the hands of eastern European criminal enterprises.
