The similarities between Bitcoin and Second Life Linden dollars end in them being a digital currency. Bitcoin hasn't even hit the mainstream yet to get obsolete and they are talking about Second Life losing its charm getting outdated losing popularity comparing it to Facebook lol etc. Second Life does a fine job for its targeted audience of gamers and Bitcoin brings value to online trading for merchants and users so why the need to compare 2 things from entire different industries?

Bitcoin hasn't even hit the mainstream yet ...

Arguably, neither did Second Life.
Sure, Second Life was more popular once, but Bitcoin used to be $1200 & the media <3d it...

The currency used in Second Life only had value because of the network of people using it, once that disappeared the value declined.


Second Life only had value because of the network of people using it.
Why do you guys use past tense tho? L$ "has" value atm. I'm an enthusiastic resident there and i can withdraw a decent weekly amount of USD from there. Surely more than some useless faucets. Am i missing days when L$ rate was 1000USD? I dont think so...been there since 2007...

Tell us more - do you think there is a bigger L$ economy than a BTC economy?

The 3D virtual world Second Life, launched in 2003, was heralded as the ultimate development in virtual reality. It had a cult-like following and had stratospheric growth during the initial years, before stagnating. Could Bitcoin be headed in a similar direction?
no i dont think bitcoin can be exist or going to second life way,we know that even on our reality bitcoin not easy to accepted,its will have more effort,but lets hope that in second life way bitcoin have better place.

VR is ripe for way, way more development. It's ludicrous to think something that emerged so long ago is going to retain an edge. In terms of money people just want something that works and continues working. Whether Bitcoin is the one is yet to be decided.

comparing a limited digital currency that have real use to an unlimited game currency that can be made by just sitting or doing some useless stuff in game? that's rich.

comparing a game currency with bitcoin is pointless.

Once the novelty of using buggy whips wore off, the media, as well as companies who had invested moved on, letting the community stagnate. Although it still has a loyal community of 1 million users, buggy whip users attracts nowhere near the same media attention as Ford et al. horseless carriage.

I remember Second life and how it was so innovative for it's time but it did get boring after a while.
Even it's currency system was lack luster. Linden Dollars weren't really worth much but people found a way to convert them into bitcoin  Cheesy

Yes because the development of Second life also stagnated, bitcoin and the blockchain on the other hand still has a lot in of developments going on.

Don't say that Second Life is dead. With VR device coming to market in the next 12 month, Second life may become a lot hotter ...
Have you play the Second Life game, gee, that is some very hot experience.

Op clearly does not understand bitcoin. Maybe he should go back to the newbie section for a few months to get a grip on bitcoin. As a matter of fact. we should have a bitcoin knowledge test that people must pass in order to get out a newbie section.
Now thats a great idea! pats self on back.

The first time I played Second Like, that was 10 years ago, I was lost in the game, some guy coming from sky, ask do you want to see stripper show?
I think the quality of 3d rendering is not impressive, have not login since.

The only thing those two have got in common is the word 'virtual' and that's it  Cheesy A game will only ever appeal to a small minority and can never hope to be embraced by the whole world. Bitcoin is money. And money transcends generations and is part of everyone's daily lives, how can it possibly stagnate?

Not sure why these two where compared in the first place (I guess, cointelegraph writer just needed to make an article badly). The failure of Second Life is entirely on their lack of development on the right path (even with initial success) and less demand growth at it used to be but BTCitcoin on the other hand, it get's developed from time to time into something better and it has great demand (in which is growing). So my answer would be a big "NO".

First of all there should be no question of Bitcoin's second life.
I am sure bitcoin will crash its glory if it is somewhat implemented.

Guess what, satisfy yourself with what was given to you in first place.

Man, no one understands how cool and totally special our bitcoin is.
Just ignore the h80rz, Lauda.

OTOH, hard to see much difference between buying bitcoins with real money, & buying Lindens.
Other than Second Life community having been around a bit longer & not currently tearing itself to pieces, that is.
Lindens are useless, stop playing around else you might get burned.

First of all there should be no question of Bitcoin's second life.
Have you even read anything in the thread? I don't think that you did.

The only thing those two have got in common is the word 'virtual' and that's it  Cheesy
I think that this is a common misconception. What I would label as 'virtual' are in-game 'currencies' or tokens that have no use outside of their environment. Bitcoin on the other hand is a digital crypto-currency.

Whether you believe into bitcoin or not, it being unused is always a possibility so don't cross that out. It's not like this has never happened before in the world of fintech .

Linden Dollars should not be pegged to the US Dollar, but rather to Bitcoin. The US Dollar will soon be worthless at the rate at which it is being printed. Bitcoin has a capped supply and will increase in value over time. It is also perfectly suited to enable micro payments within a virtual life scenario.

Once other multiplayer online games catch on to this, the scene will change dramatically. ^smile^

Bitcoin has a wider audience than the second life gamers. If Bitcoin was just a gaming currency as well then it would be limited to that genre of gamers and enthusiasts. I believe bitcoin has many more functions and fans in different walks of life so it cannot be compared really.
