This question already has an answer here:
I've been talking with my friend about this, and apparently, it seems that Bitcoins have some sort of value that is given to them.
On some websites like bitstamp, there are graphs and charts that indicate what the value is of a bitcoin in USD.
My question is, what/who determines a bitcoin's value, and what factors are involved when determining the pricing? Some things I've heard are that Bitcoins are completely seperate from other currencies and do not rely on them for value, but there must be some way it's priced.
