I think religion is a place where human collections are organized from beliefs, cultural systems, and worldviews that connect people to the order of life.  Smiley

Well, may be it's not a religion, but sure bitcoin has some aspects of a cult: a lot of people - out of profit - are sharing a vision about a different and better world without slavery by banks and governments.

Bitcoin is never a religion. Religion is a belief of how humanity starts, it also includes ritual practices which are widely acceptable and beliefs of the earth origin. While bitcoin is a way of making money online and it will never be a religion even if it makes a person the richest man on earth. No one should sacrifice their religion for the sake of money.

 I don't think it is a religion, as far as I know it's a new created system for the currency, a new way of investing, saving and trading money.. not through bank or paper money but digital currency..and its not a thing to be worship but rather to appreciate its system, and acknowledge the founder of it.. it's not a religion to have it own standard to belief with..it's just a plain crypto currency.. nothing more nothing less.

Hell no, Though i think some people might worship it, because if u dont worship with any other religion or pratice and rather you dedicate your whole life to bitcoin you might as well be worshipping the said bitcoin.. Though i dont really think of Bitcoin as been a religion, but just as a means to greater economic evolution

Of course bitcoin is not a religion, but a lot of people have a cultish approach, hoping in a kind of salvation or a better world from bitcoin

I don't think so , how can bitcoin be a religion. Yes I understand that bitcoins get some people addicted but to say is a religion seems ridicules. What do you call your work you are so committed to a religion?

Religion is different for everyone. People can go to the same church, read from the same bible, and not have the same understanding of religion.

Seems so far like BTC HODL'ers are pretty religious about not selling...

no, bitcoin is not a religion, religion is a belief and belief someone will be the creator. while bitcoin is a business / work that can make money.

This is a very weird question. Believing in the power of bitcoin is a lifestyle not a religion.  It's just like having a very good hobby that will let you earn.

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.

I don't think we have a Bitcoin God that we worship. Religion is having beliefs based from Gods in which Satori is not. We believe in bitcoin's technology and it could affect our lives financially but it does not affect our beliefs and values.

I think there is too much hype around the bitcoin, but considering it a religion is too much. Indeed, many people go crazy because of crypto currency, but it's just big money.

The ideology behind the invention of Bitcoin was not to create a religion but to create a revolutionary world where decentralization will gain root in financial transactions most especially in the digital world. However, some people acknowledge bitcoin and its concept as something with supreme power, thus, seeing Bitcoin as a God in their life. Perhaps, to such people, it is a religion.
