It seems to me that you are not quite right. Actually between bitcoin and religion have in common. Both people come up with. Only there is a significant difference. Bitcoin brings benefits to their owners, and from religion, only one hurt.

I think the OP meant in a different way like we say Cricket is a religion in India.
I don't think Bitcoin has developed itself to that stage now but hopefully in the future it'll be a religion and people from every race will support it's unique features.

First, we have to answer question what is religion?
In my opinion, it's instituted form of faith.
Faith means to believe in something invisible, spiritual, something to gives us purpose of life, our creator...
With bitcoin, I don't think that we have instituted form of faith or something invisible, spiritual, that we are receiving purpose of life here.
So, bitcoin is not a religion.

And everyone is waiting for the second coming of Satoshi.
With a great desire, any phenomena can be built into the cult. And come up with a religion and rules. But I do not think that we need it

How can bitcoin be religion, does it have a Good or some beliefs, prophets, saints? It has nothing to do with any kind of religion but with economy and the best way is to stay so. With so many religions in the world we realy don't need another usless one, don't you think so?

I think it is a religion, because I see a lot of people believe it, such as the forum people, we are in the Cong Cong believers.

For me, it is not right to treat bitcoin as a religion. Yes, bitcoin helps you financially but does it helo you spirituality? Of course not. It is a legalized way in which your hard work really pays off.

A religion cannot be called a religion if it does not have God(s). We must not believe all words people say to us, sometimes they do not know the whole truth. From my studies Atheist religions such as Buddhism, Taoism, don't have any God(s) rather they believe in themselves, they philosophize. This is from my present learning from religions.

Bitcoin can never be a kind of religion, this maybe depend on the belief of the bitcoin enthusiast here.
And obviously it is not a religion or better yet it can never become a religion in the future. Because bitcoin is a type of business where anybody can had a chance to fulfill their dreams in life.

It seems too much to make bitcoin as a religion, I think it is nothing more than money to pay and buy anything.

I argue that Cryptocurrencies function as distinct religious beliefs, which affect ego permeability by playing into our natural tendencies to perceive attributes of money and value as inherently magic and spiritual. The longer you have spent in the cryptocurrency community, the more you will be able to identify with these statements.
