Never mind that, the Euro (and every other fiat currency, and gold/silver/platinum etc) have lost an infinite % of value against Bitcoin since the genesis block, which was valued at a big fat zero until the year 2010.

Even if we start the comparison from when 1 BTC = 0.005 pizzas (the legendary 5000 BTC/pizza deal, made here on Bitcointalk.org), Bitcoin has still risen many thousands of percentage points in value against fiat currencies (currently BTC is around 150,000% up against the USD, if measured from the pizza deal)


The Euro started around 9 years before Bitcoin, and it's still worth a little more than 1$. Maybe it'll get a boost from the talked-about settling of oil deals with the Shanghai Cooperation Agreement countries in Euros, but it's hard to see how it can possibly compete with Bitcoin's growth in value.
