OK, but gold is not also backed by anything itself.
So what ?


Agreed! Gold also is not "backed" by anything and so what? I am just arguing that bitcoins are also not backed and should be valued at their market price.

OK, actually we're both right, this discussion is pointless.

How did this start ? Ah, i said that bitcoins are "backed". Well, wrong choice of words. I should have said that they are valued at their market price like a commodity.
