    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?





    Yes bitcoin is a money, money is a thing that you can buy everything if you have this bitcoin has the same purpose to made it. But bitcoin is more on the online transaction or marketing they used bitcoin for faster transaction and i think soon bitcoin is recognizable by all people we can used it all and i hope that bitcoin can used in my country like a billing in to hotel, restaurants for keep safe your money to other because bitcoin is easy to hide.

    Bitcoin is money because it a medium of exchange, we can convert it to fiat currency and trade to other altcoins. Yeah it is money because it has value, and we can use it to purchase products and services online that accepts BTC as payment. We can also put it on as investment to gain profits.
    There is no doubt that bitcoin is money because people will not invest in something else. They have invested in bitcoin for a better future and to fulfill all their needs and dreams, and all that will be possible just when someone has a lot of money and the future money is bitcoin that’s why the people all over the world are investing in bitcoin to earn more and more money and become rich in the near future.

      Yes it is. Money is anything widely accepted as a store of value, it exists in many forms such as currencies and commodities like dollars or gold. And since bitcoin is widely accepted currency so it is money.

      Yes it is. Money is anything widely accepted as a store of value, it exists in many forms such as currencies and commodities like dollars or gold. And since bitcoin is widely accepted currency so it is money.
      The fact is that Bitcoin should not be seen as a means of payment, but as a means to save your income and increase your savings. In this way, one can completely cut off all the attempts to compete with the son of a feat. But I think that once it has a completely different meaning. Although every person has an individual opinion regarding his attitude to Bitcoin and crypto currency completely.

      Bitcoin is money for two reasons. One is because it has all the necessary qualities of sound money and two is because people believe it to be and thus they are treating it like so.

      Bitcoin is money as long as people believe it's money and we use it for money. Right now people are using it as a store of value. Then people will exchange goods and services, and then things will get priced with it.

      Why not? It is valued more than any other currency or asset because people believe that, and if they believe that they do so for a reason.
      There is no doubt that bitcoin is money people use it as such and even if the price is not very stable bitcoin fits the definition perfectly and at the same time it can do a lot more than just being a currency, maybe that is where the confusion comes from.

      What if I can’t fully wrap my brain around cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ether?
      Yes bitcoin is money which exist virtually in your digital wallets. People are using bitcoins for sale/purchase of products online from all over the world. Traders use this money for making huge profits in the digital world while investors invest maximum in this crypto currency for long term benefits.

        Yes, you have a good point. Bitcoin is definitely a type of money. In which it is not tangible. It also called a virtual money. It is mined by the miners in Internet. And it is also a valuable money. It can divided into eight decimal numbers.

        Bitcoin is money for the Internet. It is a scarce digital commodity used as money by millions around the world. People buy coffee with Bitcoin at local shops. Others get paid in bitcoin and use it to shop online. Friends use it to settle with whoever paid for dinner. Workers send Bitcoin back home to help family, regardless of where they live.
        Bitcoin is money in true sense. It is a medium of exchange. The only thing new about it is the form in which it exists. I am talking about its digital form. But as far as we can buy stuff using anything, it becomes money and so does bitcoin. It is accepted by many as a payment for their offered services.

        Bitcoin could actually be considered as a money because of its present usage and market demand .it has become a way of earning more and more capital especially for those people who have been looking for a job that pays off them in accordance to input .Hence, the best available option worth opting is bitcoin being most high rated of all digital currencies available round the globe .I have been into bitcoin trading since past few years and have got a much in return of some serious efforts and hard work.

          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?





          Thats true. Bitcoin is a money in which it can be used as a pay for a bill and other things. But the cool factor is Bitcoin cant be touch, feel, see, etc. It is not a true object but rather it is discover and develop for us to have an easier transactions and buy things easily in online.

          Bitcoin is a type of digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank. Bitcoin can be used to make most of our online transactions between individuals, bitcoin is not money but is a commodity.
