Yes it is a digital money.  Smiley Because it have it's own price, can be used in a lot of shops, online casinos etc. same as fiat money. So why bitcoin is not money? It is money as we can buy something for it.

Yes i agree with you. For me bitcoin is online money. You access it whenever you want, and even the government can't see how many bitcoins you have.

For people saying it is not money. Please educate yourselfs again. It is digital money.


Absolutely yes, bitcoin is a fiat money in a digital form reversingly you can exchange it in a paper money in whatever currency you want. It was made the digit money called bitcoin to  avoid third party between the government and the bank.

There is no uncertainty about Bitcoin that we can utilize Bitcoin as like cash. We can purchase everything by utilizing Bitcoin and number of Bitcoin clients are expanding day by day.You can trade your Bitcoin into some other regular cash like dollar, euro or yen.Bitcoin can be utilized to purchase things electronically and you can pay a wide range of installment to utilize Bitcoin. In that sense it resembles cash which are likewise treaded carefully. Bitcoin is not physically printed like other cash but rather it works like other cash.

Bitcoin can’t really suit into our traditional understanding of what money is. But, if we look at it from the point of view that we pay Bitcoins in order to obtain some goods, then yes, I think Bitcoin is money. Also, there are a lot of reasons to believe Bitcoin will get a chance to open up to more people all over the world and that may change our understanding of what traditional currency is.

    Bitcoin is something radically new. Nothing like Bitcoin has been possible until now. I would go so far as to consider it sui generis; "in its own class".  This makes it important to understand what Bitcoin actually is before we try to describe it to others.

    We're getting a good handle on the code, and of course on Bitcoin's function and utility, but what words should we use to describe Bitcoin itself? There has been some debate in other threads [mostly my doing] over how it is like/not like money, cash, dollars, etc. I'd like to start this thread by focusing on the term "money", and play Devil's avocate by asking for your best arguments that Bitcoin IS money.

    My legal dictionary states "In usual and ordinary acceptation it [money] means gold, silver, or paper money, used as circulating medium of exchange, and does not embrace notes, bonds, evidences of debt, or other personal or real estate." [cites omitted]

    Wikipedia says "Money is any object that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts in a given country or socio-economic context. The main functions of money are distinguished as: a medium of exchange; a unit of account; a store of value; and, occasionally, a standard of deferred payment." [cited omitted]

    Webster's Online Dictionary defines money as:
    • 1. The most common medium of exchange; functions as legal tender; "we tried to collect the money he owed us".
    • 2. Wealth reckoned in terms of money; "all his money is in real estate".
    • 3. The official currency issued by a government or national bank; "he changed his money into francs".
    • 4. A piece of metal, as gold, silver, copper, etc., coined, or stamped, and issued by the sovereign authority as a medium of exchange in financial transactions between citizens and with government; also, any number of such pieces; coin.
    • 5. Any written or stamped promise, certificate, or order, as a government note, a bank note, a certificate of deposit, etc., which is payable in standard coined money and is lawfully current in lieu of it; in a comprehensive sense, any currency usually and lawfully employed in buying and selling.
    • 6. In general, wealth; property; as, he has much money in land, or in stocks; to make, or lose, money.
    [links omitted]
    [/list]

    I maintain that per these definitions, Bitcoin cannot possibly be described as "money". And further, I think that those who do describe Bitcoin as "money" are doing this community a disservice.

    But that is just my point of view. Are there any that can convincingly argue otherwise, that Bitcoin IS money?





    Probably, bitcoin is the new type of money. It is more like a cryptocurrency. It can also be converted into a real kind of money. Practically, it is an online kind of money that is earned inside the bitcoin organization through the use of internet connection. By posting some thoughts and opinions in the bitcoin, people that are active users and active member can gain or earn some bitcoins. It can also became a true cash through the use of some remittance centers or banks where you can cash out all your bitcoins.
    bitcoin is not real money, but we can still call it money,  because it’s  money in its  own ways, Just call it digital money. Bitcoin can be regarded as a lot of things, I even see people call it “internet money”, but I don’t think that’s correct.Lastly,  you can call it a stock (tech stock), which is the right thing.

    Bitcoin is not just money, but a new generation currency. The usual money does not allow to remain anonymous and earn on the growth of the price. Bitcoin is our bright future.

    I believe that the statement: "bitcoin is new kind of money" passes the duck test.

    Bitcoins function as money (they're a unit of account, a medium of exchange, and a store of value), and if PayPal started allowing Bitcoin transactions tomorrow I'm certain they'd treat them as Just Another Currency.

    If you like, call it a commodity, but I think all you'll accomplish is confusing potential users who might think they'll end up getting pork-bellies delivered to their porch if they don't get rid of their bitcoins.



    that's right, I'm as bad as bitcoin is a new currency but it's classified as a digital ungodly eye that its use is still limited yet all of them can use it.
    so just enjoy this while we can
    Well you've just said the meaning of decentralized currency. But about the limitation of Bitcoin it is true but we must not let it be a downside for the people in the community. In truth its just another currency but in a different platform.

    Bitcoin as an alternative currency that can pay for goods and services like conventional currency, and Bitcoin works anywhere, anytime and by anyone. But unlike physical currencies like dollars and euros. But for myself, bitcoin is money.

    bitcoin for me is not just money, more than that. simple, invisible, high value, and most importantly is easier for me in transacting. this is called financial freedom. while money, I must always keep it, holding it too much would endanger my life.

    Bitcoin is indeed something more than money. You obviously can use it to transact value back and forth but it's mainly used as a hedge from corrupt and instable fiat currencies. Bitcoin can serve as a protection from governmental (hyper)inflation, which causes the value of a fiat currency to severely drop (Zimbabwe & germany are some key examples for this).

    Yes. Bitcoin was created in 2009 is considered the greatest form of money the world had ever seen.

    Many other digital currencies have emerged, some with minor improvements. But they all share the same basic properties of the original. So now we can just say that “cryptocurrency” is the best form of money, and this includes Bitcoin.

    These new currencies are in essence digital cash and digital gold. Many experts predict this new money will obsolete all other lesser forms of money which includes fiat currency.

    So is Bitcoin money? Yes, it’s the best form of money ever created.

    The main purpose of bitcoin was for trading and investment like gold but as you mentioned that it has many advantages, we can by things, pay bills and transfer it to others while in case of gold or other commodity you have to convert it to fiat first. Bitcoin is deemed as money because of its advantages and as it is now a medium of exchange so the answers is "Yes Bitcoin is Money".

    Yes bitcoin is money.. Generally speaking bitcoins and money have the same characteristic, commonly used in conversion of goods and services. The difference between the two is that bitcoin widely used in digital environment it is intangible, while money is a tangible thing commonly used in outside world.

    Technically, anything used as medium of exchange is money. It is earned by signature campaigns and potentially will be used as medium of exchange on hotels or transportation so it is definitely a money. It is a counterpart or a substitution.

      Yes Bitcoin is also a kind of money. Although it is not tangible like Fiat money it also has a value that can be exchange in anyone, anytime and anywhere. Change happen anywhere in which money is also not definitely change but it adopt in its environment in which people use Internet everywhere so that Fiat money is just like evolve to Cryptocurrency so that it has a Bitcoin today.

      I think better than money, even better than gold. this is because the price or bitcoin value continues to increase, then it is time we invest our money into bitcoin because it proved very profitable.
