Both are equally currency. Bitcoin is a digital currency or other local currency that we can use or do whatever we need. Because bitcoin is a digital currency, we can only buy things online. We can do more things through online.

Both are currencies and their uses are the same. Bitcoin is a digital currency that we can use or do whatever we need. Because bitcoin is a digital currency, we can only shop or do something online. We can go around and do more things online. But with other local currencies, we can do more.
there is a big difference between bitcoin and real money, we can use bitcoin just in online shop and its provide for those who use bitcoin but real currency is use in everywhere for every person,

Yes we can only use bitcoin online as it is created for online use.  That is why it is called digital currency and all transactions are made online.  When there is no electricity and when there is no internet connection, there would be no bitcoin.  Unlike real money which do not need anything aside from itself.   
The difference is simple bitcoin is virtual currency and real money is real in practice, that is a physical money, we are using in our surroundings for purchasing and all. But bitcoin is digital money only for online purchases.

 “fiat currency” is any national currency decreed legal by the national government, but is intrinsically valueless money. Fiat currencies no longer represent gold deposits or other things of known market value. They are just the accepted pieces of national paper, printed by a private central bank and loaned to the national government, with interest.

The difference between bitcoin and real money is that real money can be stolen from you because a theft can see it but bitcoin is more secure because no one know how much you have in your pocket so it is more safe than real money.

All sorts of reasons ranging from pure curiosity to love of new technology to investment diversification. Bitcoin is used as currency to buy things and as a store of value, i.e., a place to house your savings with hopes of value appreciation or hedging against the depreciation of stocks or savings held in fiat currency. One example often used is that of Cyprus. Are you familiar with the country of Cyprus and it's severe monetary crisis from a few years back? It was so bad that the Cyprus government controlled how much money their citizens could take out of their banks. Think about that. That government telling you that you can't access your very own money! How scary is that? Bitcoin offers an alternative. No government (currently) can seize control of your bitcoin, this represents safety and security.

Many differences are between bitcoin and real money or fiat money.

Most basic is that real or fiat is controlled by government and bitcoin is decentralizes and such no one is controlling it that why government dont like bitcoin and bitcoin users or any crypto user.

Basic, Bitcoin is a crypto currency, it does not need to have the controller from someone or any force. It is a currency created for users and manage, protect system through user. More users, the system of Bitcoin has more power and not easy to attack by anyone. While, FIAT controlled by the government.

Many difference between Bitcoin and fiat. I'll mention some of them:

- Bitcoin works online, fiat works anywhere.
- Bitcoin have a limited supply, fiat is unlimited.
- You don't need regulation and papers to fill to use bitcoin.
- Bitcoin price is regulated by supply and offer, fiat price is regulated by banks and govs.
- Bitcoin transactions are faster and safer.

The difference between bitcoin and real money is that real money can be stolen from you because a theft can see it but bitcoin is more secure because no one know how much you have in your pocket so it is more safe than real money.
Another difference between Bitcoin and the real/flat money is its usage. Bitcoin is limited when it cones to payment while real money is can be use freely worldwide. On the other hand, Bitcoin is not controlled by the government and it is tax free; it is the big difference of Bitcoin with the real money.

Different between bitcoin and real money in my opinion is we can know how much bitcoin in the word. Bitcoin you can use it online as alternative real money you can buy anytime there. Bitcoin you should have too because many other exchange to exchanger  it fast.

for me, bitcoin is a way of investment and not yet a cash. Bitcoin can be used as payment for online services and transactions that cash couldn't pay for.

main difference is actually cash (governmental currency) is centralized and crypto currencies (starting with btc of course) decentralized which provides anonymity.
I think this is a good comparison, however the government still want to regulate this decentralized system which might not be
favorable for us as for sure they will not allow bitcoin to replace the current centralized system they build.
But we own our money, we can exchange our money to Bitcoin anytime and that is also one of the reason made the price of Bitcoin increased a lot of value in this year without much good news. As long as the people still want to using Bitcoin, the government can not kill this currency.
I agree with you if people start earning bitcoins and if a lot of people are starting to do that than people will easily be addicted to it that way even if the government wants to do anything about bitcoin they would not let it happen because a lot of people invest in bitcoin.

Same goes for me if the government wants to ban bitcoin we can just say no because we are allowed to have a word and say anything about it why would they steal something that gives you money some people even made it their job they will lose their job.

I've discovered Bitcoin few days ago, but I am skeptical about few things, why would I invest money in Bitcoins at the end of the day,why would I convert money into Bitcoins?

If I want to buy stocks or invest money I can easily invest with real $. Why would I convert my $ to bitcoins?
If I want to gamble , I can simply gamble on websites that require $ as currency, why would I convert it to bitcoins?
What's the difference between Bitcoins and dolars? What does bitcoin bring to the table that real $ don't, less taxes, more income?

The difference between bitcoin and money is that bitcoin is a digital cryptocurrency that is used for payments online for easy ways to deliver instant payments while money is what we all familiar about and we used in everyday life to obtain and get what we want to buy and the needs of our everyday lives is obtained using money , for examples are food , clothes and shelter. Well for me it is the same thing because we can convert bitcoin in some real cash or money.

 Volatility, stability, legalization and market demand, perhaps the most significant differences between two concepts that I could assume.

Real money is accessible everywhere but bitcoin requires internet connectivity to use and its accessibility is limited and huge population unaware about bitcoin and crypto currencies. You can buy your everyday needs through cash any time but that is not possible through bitcoin.

of course, bitcoin isn't at all fit for small expenses...these are two different types of currency and they perform different functions

cause bitcoin as on just how our time age passed by this is how or when this kind of digital currency are risen and been adopt by many people and now compared on the fiat currency , so difference between for this two currency is not a being deal isnt , why the government dont like it simply because they cant control it because this was a decentralized.
