I know that bitcoins are divisible by 8 decimal places or so, but I've also heard that they can be expanded if need be.
How is this different than inflating a currency.
I'm just can't seem to wrap my mind around this.
Sorry I'm kinda new, and am 100% behind the idea of this, just trying to understand a bit better.
if you take a single bitcoin and split it into 100 billion pieces, the sum of all those pieces still equals a single bitcoin.
There are max 21 million bitcoins ever allowed.
Splitting a single bitcoin does not make whole bitcoins, it makes smaller units of trade.
