...compared to say u.s. dollar bills which you can hold in your hand or stuff in your mattress.

this is why bitcoins will not go mainstream because majority of human beings on this planet do not have access to a computer.

successful gold standards are things like toyota trucks, ak-47's, u.s. c-notes which thrive in places like afghanistan and africa.

Why does that have anything to do with why a currency would fail? How many currencies exist right now that most people don't ever see or have access to?

And smart phones are basically computers anyway. Plus, many people who don't have computers still have access to them via friends or cafes and with the growing importance of the cloud, the hardware is becoming less essential anyway.

What made you even post this idea???

So make a physically transferable component. Bitbills aren't too shabby for starters, or you could issue some kind of specie-backed currency in which BTC is the "specie." How do you think paper money got started in the first place?

Reminder: The U.S. is $100 trillion in debt and Bitcoin provides a better way to spend/save money than the current situation (i.e., the U.S. economy going to plummet).

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Your thesis is nonsense.  have you heard of social stratification?  Societies defined by commerce or currency.  Them and us, or some such analogy. The global population has never been more stratified since feudal times. There are the lords and the serfs.  maybe BTC becomes the currency of the elites maybe it doesnt, but the serfs matter not in this
extreme class separation. The currency of the serfs is paper now, dollars to be exact, i.e. toilet paper. Gold, silver and assets are the currency of the elite, behind the curtain.
The elite laugh at the proles chasing their lives away for some paper scraps.  Good or bad?...neh, just the way it is at this time. What is BTC in this scheme, does it become central to power or to the masses.  Your guess is as good as mine.
