People now worship anything they want, so i don't see how BTC can't be turned into a religion. I mean, believe in what you want but don't try to introduce me to your "beliefs".
The network tries to produce one block per 10 minutes. It does this by automatically adjusting how difficult it is to produce blocks.

Bitcoin is not a religion, it is cryptocurrency which has been very promising. It raises the awareness of the block chain technology.

Quote
7.25.3.6.5  (02-23-1999)
Religious Belief Defined

    The term "religious" as used in IRC 501(c)(3) is not subject to precise definition. The leading interpretation of the term was made by the Supreme Court in United States v. Seeger, 380 U.S. 163 (1965), in which the Court interpreted the phrase "religious training and belief" as used in the Universal Military Training and Service Act, 50 U.S.C. section 456 (j), in determining an individual’s eligibility for exemption from military service on religious grounds. The Court formulated the following definition: "A sincere and meaningful belief which occupies in the life of its possessor a place parallel to that filled by the God of those admittedly qualifying for the exemption comes within the statutory definition."

    The Court elaborated upon the Seeger definition in Welsh v. United States, 398 U.S. 33 (1970), stating that "f an individual deeply and sincerely holds beliefs that are purely ethical or moral in source and content but that nevertheless impose upon him a duty of conscience to refrain from participating in any war at any time, those beliefs certainly occupy in the life of that individual a place parallel to that filled by... God in the lives of traditionally religious persons." Thus, religious beliefs include many beliefs (for example, Taoism, Buddhism, and Secular Humanism) that do not posit the existence of a Supreme Being in the conventional sense.

Right, bitcoin is a digital money. Money cannot be a religion, it produces by advance of technology. Bitcoin is not something to praise. We just believe that earning it will change the way we live along.

If bitcoin is a religion - I am a believer. Did I just stopped being an atheist?  Shocked

Let's be honest, it does have all the makings of a religion, let me just go through the list:

. Mysterious creator that has suddenly vanished off the face of the Earth or doesn't exist  - Check

. Celebrities are endorsing it to give it more legitimacy - Check

. Multiple sects splitting off from the main beliefs because they disagree with them or want to form their own cult instead - Check

. Lots and lots of conspiracy theories surrounding it - Check

. Persecution from government organisations that fear it - Check

. Crazy evangelical fringe believers who run around and try to harass people into following it - Check

. Extremely negative mass media attention - Check

Yep, I'd say we're a religion now Cheesy

This topic title actually makes sense now.

No. But I won't be surprised if some people started to worship bitcoin. Bitcoin has a really big impact to me especially when it comes to financially. Maybe some crazy group would create some cult and treat bitcoin like a creation of God or something like that.

Well lets see how religion is defined...

religion -

the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods:
"ideas about the relationship between science and religion"
synonyms: faith · belief · worship · creed · sect · church · cult · denomination
a particular system of faith and worship:
"the world's great religions"
a pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance:
"consumerism is the new religion"


The passion that some people have about bitcoin can essentially be described as the last definition under religion...


so yeah bitcoin is a region to some people

Bit coin at the moment is considers as the highest currency in the word and people tend to worship wealth, so why not considers bit coin as religion, people mining and trading should be considers as worship and praying.  Cool

Right that bitcoin is not a religion to worship and praise. The use of bitcoin and its benefits give us hope to gain money that can support our needs. Bitcoin is just digital money

It is not right to define Bitcoin as faith. Religions are dogmatic concepts. But we can question the bitcoin. We can change its source code the way we want it. But we can not change their religion.

Why can not we change our religion? Some people abandon the Christian faith and accept Buddhism. And this is their own choice.
But bitcoin can not be called a religion. It's just a way to earn and payment system

Yep, I'd say we're a religion now Cheesy

I would add the following:

-It was conceived to save the world from evil and secure a future of prosperity for those who accept it fully: -Check

-Believers tend to label nonbelievers as confused people who go the wrong way that leads to (financial) destruction, and their only hope is to repent and accept the new creed: -Check

-Those who have accepted the new creed make up a superior caste of Chosen who will one day reign over the unconverted: -Check
