No, Bitcoin is a digital currency. The vast majority of people use it, buy it hoping that it will go up in value one day. They are not praying for it, nor will kill in the name of Bitcoin.

Of course it's not a religion, moreover that it not implies any kind of "god".
But in can be considered a "cult" as we all here are sharing a vision about a better future, with less power to banks and governments.

Lol! Bitcoin is digital currency while religion is not a currency it's an organization that talks about the word of Jesus Christ.

Actually, what is a religion? Is something in which you trust.
In this sense, bitcoin could be a religion that promises to save you from banks domination.
Well, may be :-)

religion implies a belief in the supernatural...bitcoin is too real, so that you can't call it a religion))

Really you ask that question?
Off course not. Bitcoin just a phenomenon in our generation I guess.

I don;t think so. Religion I believe requires a God to worship. Are people already praising Bitcoin> What in the world and how did this happen?

Wi-fi is a religion - people gathering in groups and worshiping it.
Bitcoin not yet - we should make a bitcoin church for those that want it.

I personally don't consider Bitcoin as the religion. It is the cryptocurrency that is situated in the money spot. Our world is very big and the population is rising every day and with that kind of rise, there are also many new religions that people are creating on their own. Everything can be considered as a religion but just a few of this religions are accepted by the government. Few percent of the people believes that the money is the religion for them cause they have plenty of it and their minds have absorbed the thoughts about the newly created religion that are overwhelming their minds without the real facts.

No way!!! It can not be a religion, it's just a way to make money, invest it and then, buy something for it. But this is only my point of view, no more. But I know many people, for whom it is still a religion and they refer to the means as to God. I think that this is not correct Sad

Why shouldn't it be?
I've heard the expression "the holy dollar" many times - so why not?

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.

Based on what you posted, it will,  but not totally a religion. maybe there are many people who are believing on it but I don't think that It will be a legal or accepted religion. There are many things here on Earth that we believed buit not a religion rather, as simple as that.

The higher the price of bitcoin, the higher the hopes of the people that Bitcoin will make them rich, the more Bitcoin is turning into a religion.

Never thought about it is that way, but you're right, now the more I thinking the more I tend to agree that bitcoin indeed has a lot of common with religion!

It's easy to make a religion from anything, as long as there are people that NEED it to be a religion. There are such people for BTC for sure, but that's the least of it's problems. And anyway, anything you call "religion" is fine as long as it's adepts act sane and don't start, let's say, human sacrifices (to the spirit of BTC... oh my!).

Bitcoin is not exactly a religion. These are completely different concepts. You can not put them together.

The word religion is a practice of spiritual things while bitcoin is investment and more on how to earn money not all about sptliritual. So bitcoin is not a religion.

I know what you mean... people are starting to act fanatic and preaching everywhere.

At the same time... it is kind of a big global event, so a reaction like this was expected.
