For someone, it's just a religion or even a drug, although it's almost the same. People pump up the price by their demand for it and do not even see the real things, but they believe in what will be even better still. So it's like 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.

No. Bitcoin is not a religion. Religion can only be for belief in God. That is my take. I don't worship bitcoin nor give praise to it. But I thank God for bitcoin because it had helped me a lot me and my family

I'd say it has similarities as a religion. It has value because we believe it has value Tongue

The issue with law, it can be interpreted any which ways you want it to be.  If the Supreme Court, as a joke, wanted to make Bitcoin into a religion, they could interpret it as such and legally recognize it as one.

Probably not legally... On other hand it seems to be kinda big for some people here...

So, I wouldn't think it would pass in any court anywhere.

Even if I feel that some people believe in it bit too much...

This is kind of what I was getting at. As far as I can tell there is a not insignificant number of people use bitcoin for purely ethical and moral reasons.

edit: edited quote because ekaros edited making it confusing, content pretty much the same
No. But i have faith on it that it can help me in my financial struggles. And i really hope it does.But bitcoin is not a religion.

The question is that are we worshiping bitcoin? Obviously  not then it is obviously not a religion. This ideas are just making those newbies more dumb rather than giving them a useful information. Don't complicate things man bitcoin is simply a currency, a platform

Perhaps for some, bitcoin will become a religion, but for me it is only a new generation currency and an opportunity to invest. For religion, a creator is needed, and this is only a coin.

Is bitcoin a religion?

Not for ISIS. For ISIS it's a play thing. Why? Because they have all the money they want through U.S. funding.

Cool

For me absolutely not.
Since bitcoin is not for the religion why is it created .

I think that bitcoin is not a religion. For me it is a tool for investment, and no more. If bitcoin disappears I will be upset, but not much.

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.
