Seeking Alpha: Best Currency In 2012

“About this time last year I wrote an instablog about the best performing currency of the year 2011. There was one currency, which gained 1400% against the USD last year – and this same currency is again – by far – the best performing currency this year gaining another roughly 220% against the FEDs USD . .

That is a two-year yield of 4400% vs. USD (from 0.3 USD/BTC to 13.4 USD/BTC). In gold terms, bitcoin is also doing well.”
