Bitcoin is clearly an ideology for a lot of people. It was the first one, there are clearly better alternatives as far the technology is concerned, so yes not far away from a religion !

For some, Bitcoin is a coin. For others, Bitcoin is an illusion. For others, bitcoin is a dream coming true. For others, Bitcoin is a cult, aka a religion.

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.

Definitely bitcoin is not religion, we do believe in bitcoin but we don't worship anything here. Religion tackles about the goodness of God and how does He works in our lives. Bitcoin is a digital currency that we do believe is our future that can provide us with a nice life in terms of financial status.

Naturally, bitcoin is not a religion but people believe bitcoin thanks to its great power of making people rich easily. Bitcoin gives people hope to become a rich person . That's why, people believe in bitcoin but they do not worship to it.

Ofcourse not bitcoin is not a religion. Bitcoin and religion is a different thing. Bitcpon is for financial support while religion includes GoD. We cannot compair the two because they are very different things.

I think nowadays there are many ways to turn idea/things to a religion or cult. At least bitcoin is not "legally" a religion.

Some people believe in bitcoin as sincerely as they do in God. Therefore, we can say that the crypto currency is a religion.

Bitcoin is not religion, maybe some of us believe in Bitcoin will change our life or you can say can leads us to become success.  I could say bitcoin is some digital money without central bank and not controllable by any bank or government. Probably bitcoin will change our mindset so many person become addicted to earn bitcoin so some of them say bitcoin has become our religion.

I guess it could be a religion because religion is very subjective. Maybe it would be a religion for all of us if we actually invested when it all started and earned like 40 million... Wink?
