I bought a small quantity of bitcoins a couple of months ago. In that time, no one has decreased the value of what I hold by counterfeiting more bitcoins. In fact, my holdings will currently purchase approximately 33% more USD than when I purchased them. What's not to like?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

The issue that I see with Bitcoin is that it doesn't allow credit creation.
This assumption is simply wrong.
There is no line of code supporting such a conclusion.

Any currency is not allowing credit creation out of its own.
It's how the banks (ab)use money that allows credit creation.
Apply this to Bitcoins ... and there you are.

The paining (sic!) is done with the QPainter class inside the paintEvent() method.
