Bitcoin is just a tool to support, to trade, to sell, and to trade. Maybe you do not believe bitcoin, maybe you do not have bitcoin, but the religion you have to believe, you must have religion.

Nope. Bitcoin is type of digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank. bitcoin has become a hot commodity among speculators a unit of bitcoin.bitcoins can be used for online transactions between individuals. While religion is the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.

There is a good reason that explain that.
Bitcoin has shown that is possible to use a network of computers,connected via Internet,to build and maintain a set of valuable shared data without they need for a trusted authourity
Think about that:from a bunch of anonymous computers that have no reason to trust one other,an ironclad network has emerged that can support a whole currency.Literal money.
For some people money is a religion.

It would be the shame to call a volatile and unrealiable preposterous as a religion

Nope because A Religion is a set of beliefs that is held by a group of people. There are many different religions, each with a different set of beliefs. The beliefs are about the world and the people in it, about how they came into being, and what their purpose is. These beliefs are often linked to supernatural beings such as God, a number of gods or spirits. They may also be linked to an idea such as a path that the spirit of each person should take towards goodness, truth and duty. This is called spirituality. Each religion has different ideas about these things. Each religion also has a "moral code" which is a set of beliefs about how humans should act. Each religion usually has their own type of "devotions" when people worship or pray. They often have rituals (special things that are always done in the same way) for certain times of the year or certain times of a person's life.Other words that are used for religion are "faith" and "belief system. While bitcoin is Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and worldwide payment system. It is the first decentralized digital currency, as the system works without a central bank or single administrator. These two are two different thing.

I don't think bitcoin is a religion. In fact, it has nothing to do with religion.

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.

Really do applaud the effort and i'm loving the initiative....but there is no way in hell the IRS will ever let bitcoin or crypto be classified as a religious entity and be tax free. Think of how much tax revenue the money machine would miss out on if they did that.

Fiat corrupts all, the IRS is one of the most corrupt organizations in the US government.

It is not a religion but most of its defenders are very dogmatic. And against dogma you can not have a reasonable discussion.

nah, there is no way bitcoin is a religion. At the time that law was made, bitcoin had not been created so it is out of the religion league.

THose some laws are restrospective, bitcoin is a controversial issue to be classified as a religion.

HMMM if it is, there will be religious fanatics all about.

This was actually funny to read. It definitely could be because of how many people have faith and believe in it though.

You know what? Bitcoin will never be a religion.Bitcoin is a "thing" not a belief system or a philosophy where in you can find it and here all the time in all religious group existing in this world. Also when we talk about religion we are talking about a group with rituals, traditions and some other activities.
If this is not the definition of bitcoin it is very clear that connecting religion to bitcoin is useless.

I don't think you could say that bitcoin or any other crypto currency is actually a religion. Maybe we could say that it is but only on the simplest and basest of criterions. There are no moral principles, guidelines, traditions and otherwise that could include bitcoin as a religion. Maybe if you actually worship money and you put a very high value on money then any form of money making endeavor is a religion to you. But otherwise, I'd stick with your garden variety Christianity or Islam
