Deflationary death spiral only happens to money that are not infinitely divisible.

Bitcoin is, technically, infinitely divisible (though some limits are currently coded into mainstream clients).

Problem ?

Geist Geld, the experimental cryptocurrency, is ready for yet another SolidCoin collapse Wink

I don't know what a "Deflationary death spiral" is. I guess you mean a deflation not caused only by growth but also by shrinking credit and thus liquidity. But that has to do with debt creation and interest, not with the divisibility of the currency.

2 different forms of free-money: Freicoin (free of basic interest because it's perishable), Mutual credit (no interest because it's abundant)
