I think it is wrong to call bitcoin a "private" currency.

On the contrary, imo bitcoin is much more of a public currency that any national currency is.


It depends on how you take the word private. Private could mean Bitcoin is ours, privately-owned by us. That is in contrast to fiat money which is essentially not ours. Fiat could be in our possession but it is never ours. It is owned by the government, the central bank in particular. If the banks consider our money illegally-earned, they could easily freeze our account and get the money from our individual accounts. Bitcoin is different. It is a private property once it is already ours.

Well, I am in contradict. When we talk about bitcoin - much to say that it is "private" currency. Take a look, you may have the reason to think that it is a national currency because everyone could own it; however, if we would have tried to look, the only reason that makes the assumption false would be the basis on of who are the owners of bitcoin. Most probably, the one who can hold is the one who is also an investor of bitcoin. If we used logic, all people could be an investor, but not all people can win investment. Some people can be an investor; thus making him a private holder and as such used bitcoin for private - as in a private currency. Not all can be used bitcoin in a national currency such as it can be controlled by a government agency.

It depends on how you define privacy for Bitcoin. Anyone can use bitcoin and earn from it that makes it public. But, the identity of the people who are using and created were private. Overall, bitcoin as a currency is not private, it can be directly converted to physical currency and get it.

for me, bitcoin is still considered as a private currency as it's decentralized which means not controlled by government or a group of people. No need to leak your data to own a bitcoin address unlike bank account.

I don't think that it is a private currency, What do you mean when saying like this? To my mind, this is the best currency ever which is available to everyone and you can invest in it anytime

btc is not a private currency nor does it belong to the government, but btc is a digital currency that belongs to anyone who joins cripto, there is no limit to whoever it comes from is all the right to own and use btc, so I think btc is better called currency global, whose scope is broader compared to cash

I think in the year 2020 when Bitcoin replaced cash to settle things we could call Bitcoin a "private" coin. Bitcoin is highly secure, transactions do not contain personal information, it is hidden on the system, allowing security of information users avoid identity theft.

Since BTC is not controlled by any particular employee. In my opinion, this is the currency of people, which is not controlled by any particular institution / person. Its price is determined by the mechanism of supply and demand. if it becomes a world currency for the future, because of the good value

I think that it is better to use btc because it can provide you with the confidentiality. To my mind, this is a good way to earn money and at the same time to benefit from many other advantages

BTC is not private. All your transactions are public, so eventually (when you somehow spend your coins) you can be connected to certain address. However, if traded cautiously, you may remain anonymous.

Anyway, I would not care about it - BTC was not meant to be private - there are other coins that are private (Monero, Privcy).

Bitcoin is not a private currency but using of bitcoin is private for sure. Since its anonymous we can send or receive the a lot of money without giving any data or identity. Bitcoin is a public currency even AtMs are build in some countries many hostel schools are accepting it there's no chance of calling bitcoins as a private currency. Maybe you're calling it private because they're not exist physically but its internet currency and everyone is welcome to use it

In some countries, bitcoin is recognized as currency, others are not. Bitcoin is everywhere, it's completely public, just you have not really learned about it. Bitcoin is not for anyone, it can cross borders. If you really want to own it, no one can stop you. Because of that, bitcoin is not a private money.
