as of now personally i wouldn't consider bitcoin as money yet.
it is still too volatile to be called as money.
it will be very risky to use it as a money since you don't know what could happen in its price tomorrow.
hopefully one day it can reach that point.
but as of now i'll just call it as asset.

It can also be said as a money because it is used in trade, it also can be considered as asset something similar to home and land and vehicles.

bitcoin is not money but asset like gold. not worth if use bitcoin for buy a things.
buy bitcoin invest bitcoin why buy money for money if bitcoin is money?
But gold is money as well, maybe people do not use it like that anymore but that is not important gold was used as money for a lot longer than any fiat currency and if people do not adopt bitcoin then it is very likely that gold makes a huge comeback when the fiat system collapses.
Gold is not money, it is an asset and you can convert it to money. Money is FIAT, Gold has value but you can not call it is money. Money can use to payment but we can not use Gold to that. Therefore, you need to know the difference between FIAT and asset.
yes gold is an asset that is now starting to decline demand because of the bitcoin
and gold must be exchanged with money first so it can be used in terms of purchase transactions
I agree with you gold is an asset but bitcoin is money too and i think this is more money to us that in real life money because some people almost made this their daily job and are earning a lot from it.

In my opinion,bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency developed in 2009.
bitcoin is not a banknote or coin but bitcoin is money,digital money.
bitcoin can be sent to anyone,wherever and whenever you want to send it.
Maybe this currency will be very popular in the future to come because since the first time bitcoin appears, bitcoin has grown rapidly.

Bitcoin is a online crypto currency witch you should see the same as gold. Because with gold you can't really buy things. But with bitcoin you can buy some things online just like gold. But bitcoin is just not that popular yet to use it as a form of paying method.

It not important, I do not care the Bitcoin can helps me make money or not, because most of my salary are from the altcoin communtiy, it is not from Bitcoin. However, Gold can helps me have a saving money for long term without any risk.

It depends on the perspective of a person on how he/she looks at the use of bitcoins. I am working on bounty campaigns and i take at as a sideline as the value of bitcoins is increasing consistently there is no doubt that everyone will be attracted and start to invest.
I disagree there is a very clear definition of what can be money and why it needs to become money and bitcoin fits all the characteristic needed to become money so no matter how much people may try to deny the fact that bitcoin is money, bitcoin is money whether they like it or not.

    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 and it is a type of an online crypto currency. And people should see bitcoin the same as what gold is. Because just like bitcoin, people can't really buy things with it and people still have to convert it into a real physical money. But with bitcoin you can buy some things online just like gold.

    For me it's money, currency, just like dollar, euro etc. It's used to trade, the only difference is that it's not physical.

      For me, the bitcoin is money. Why? because the bitcoin helps me to earned money by posting and the money I earned in bitcoin I keep it and gave it to my family to help them in their daily expenses or daily needs. I used bitcoin not also in earning money also I used bitcoin to buy my needs like foods, shirts and my tuition. I coincide my studies and my bitcoin. I have a time in studying my lessons and I have time in posting here in bitcoin.

      Because of its deflationary nature I think Bitcoin is actually more "money" than any currency on the planet right now.  Gold is the only worthy comparison, but because of the difficulties inherent in using/transporting/ exchanging gold it doesn't even come close

      Bitcoin is money even I have to say that bitcoin is better than money, if the value of money keeps going down because of the price factor of the rising goods but the bitcoin just keeps going up.

      Bitcoin is money for the Internet. Bitcoin does refer to itself as money or currency issued, however, not by a government, but instead in a decentralized manner. A lot of them get paid in bitcoin and use it to shop online and bitcoin is now the best-performing currency. Also bitcoin is more than money.
