   I think the existence of bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies, reveals the true nature of money which we had long forgotten or never really had the right idea about. Money, as defined by the Webster's 9th New Collegiate Dictionary, is something generally accepted as a meduim of exchage, a measure of value, or a means of payment. Practically, though, that "something" is a concrete object, not just a mere idea. Thus, money is subject to depreciation - as seen in the decline of value via inflation and similar situations. In this sense, the standard value of money doesn't seem so standard at all and it won't be much of a "generally accepted" medium of exchage. This is where bitcoin is more of a real money than the physical money itself.  We don't control it's value, unless everyone - really, EVERYONE, at least those who use it - agrees so.

For me , money is something that you earn or been recieve because you do something that has equal worth on it. Fiat money and digital currency is both far from being a money, because we can recieve a value that we are not worth with.

Bitcoin is actually more money than every form of money and we should not look at what the financial experts are saying by calling bitcoin a bubble or scam but we should see the reality of were bitcoin stand. For something to serve as a medium of exchange for goods and services it must be durable and trusted and that is were bitcoin come in.Bitcoin is the future of money and as a future of money we should learn on how to used it and also teach others people about it and we would see bitcoin will be generally accepted.

nah bitcoin is a digital currency that we know bitcoin is not just money or assets alone with bitcoin can be political and all kinds because bitcoin is the only money that can not be controlled by the government or the richest man in this world, this is purely from the demand and enthusiasts.

Real(fiat) money depreciates over time, unlike bitcoin, but at the same time provides their liquidity and protection against counterfeiting by the country that issued them.

Money is a form of currency. Currency can be defied as money in any form when in actual use or circulation as a medium of exchange, especially banknotes and coins.
I think cryptocurrencies definitely cover part of that definition and by name are suited to being called currency/money. I’m unsure how it can be considered ‘more real’ than actual money. That’s like saying garlic bread is ‘more real’ than actual bread. It’s just a different variation.

That's actually far, far away from the truth.
If you could look through some fat history books, you could clearly notice who is responsible for majority of money counterfeiting.
Urban legends tell the tale of brave and fearless money forgers and yet the story is usually much simpler, much more disgusting and terrifying. Those legendary fakers are highly trained specialists, with pre-made tools, machines, matrices, props, ramrods  etc.
Only one group could have access to such scarce equipment, special forces. Those usually work on the command of governments.
What is the best way to increase the amount of money in circulation, without rising the inflation? Smiley By the usage of controlled, professional counterfeiters, cloaked as regular criminals... 
In short, Gov. gives no protection against forgery.

Both currencies to me are real money in their own capacity based on their users at any point in time. Money is actually any medium that is generally acceptable as a means of payment for goods and services rendered in the country of operate. The only difference between them is that Bitcoin is an anonymous[abstract in nature] on line Digital currency, though restricted/limited to the number of people that actually believes in it. However, the feasible/physical paper money itself can only be accepted as a legal tender within their country of originality. The two of them uses forms of exchange to deal with the outside wall.

It can not be said now that bitcoin is more than real money. Because bitcoin's price changes. Its price is all about trust.

I think Bitcoin is not real money. I think Bitcoin is electronic gold. Bitcoin is a type of asset that can make a profit from rising prices. and gold also have similar features

Bitcoin is only digital figure a number of integrals,that can be used for trading ,thats why this is not a real money,its only digital number,that can be used for exchange  or to barter other kinds of currency,otherwise it is disame purpose to money in the exchange trading ,but in phsical form,money is opaque while bitcoin is transparent,because its compose only of integral numbers.

There isn't really anything that can be classified as "real money".

I feel like that you're referring to fiat currency when you talk about bitcoin being superior than 'real money'. Fiat currency is only one type of currency, so it definitely can't be classified as "money itself" or "real money" at all.

In fact, if we follow the definition that money needs to be a store of value in the long run, bitcoin is a much better form of money than fiat is as we know that fiat is centralised and tend to lose value in the long run due to currency debasement.

I myself very much would rather hold bitcoin as a store of wealth in the long run, than fiat. That's the simple truth. But obviously the short term usages of bitcoin is limited at the moment, coupled along with the fact that adoption is low (and awareness) means that right now, people still use fiat for most of their day to day transactions, even though bitcoin can be considered to be a better form of money and store of value.

Bitcoin works as real money because it is been using even for payment system to those establishment that accept bitcoin and mostly on online. It can be a real money which we are using everyday even the price is not that stable. Most people now earning bitcoin and claim to get a salary in the form of bitcoin also.

In fact its ability to be transferred transcontinental makes it an awesome technology and innovation. This true value makes it have some money qualities and features. If Bitcoins adoption increases some more, we'll actually appreciate its value better.

No, real money is fiat, bitcoin is a digital currency and can be used for transactions but bitcoin does not become real money because its value is constantly changing.
