  • What is "use"?

I have 0.50 BTC. I don't use it for anything; I mostly hang onto it for its ornamental value.

use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name

    I think "use" in this context means spend, acquire or trade in the currency.

    Update: you .5 BTC is currently worth ~250 Euro.

      It was more than double that a couple of months ago.

      Back when I acquired it virtually nobody had heard of bitcoin, so half a bitcoin was virtually nothing. Myself and some acquaintances were sending around fractions of bitcoins like 0.1 and 0.05 just to experiment with how bitcoin worked. (This was when I was writing Finance::Bitcoin.) Of course, these days it would be foolish to experiment with such large sums.

      use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name
