Is it OK to to keep a GIT repository inside of a Dropbox folder?

I currently keep my VB.NET projects inside of a Dropbox folder, which is also synced to my laptop.  This has worked very well, but now I want to start using GIT.  I have seen articles on the web discussing how to use Dropbox as the location for a remote repository, but I do not really need that.  I would simply like to keep my repositories inside of my Dropbox folder in order to sync them between my desktop and laptop.

I have also set up a BitBucket account and intend to push my repos there occasionally as an additional backup, but would prefer to use Dropbox for day-to-day syncing.  Is this acceptable?  Or will I risk corrupting my data if I do?  Thank you.

I would assume the thing you would worry about the most would be certs and keys. But if you had to part out work, I could see that being even more useful.
