I think there is simply no disadvantage of bitcoin for the long term holders, if you are a trader then there are lots of disadvantages you can face in the short term.

Bitcoin isn't just an investment to a lot of people. You might see it as just another investment, but many here actually want Bitcoin to succeed. On the other hand, when I invest in a company on the stock market, I couldn't give a fuck what happens to that company as long as I can make some money and get out at the right time. Bitcoin is not that

I agree here, making profits can be a good thing but it's more a sidenote of Bitcoin. The main interest of Bitcoin is to change the money system in a better way. Making it decentralized instead of it's actually centralized character. This was Satoshi's intention when he invented Bitcoin.
And over all I'm looking forward to see Bitcoin succeded in every point mentioned above Smiley

Among all the advantages of bitcoins, the speed of which transactions are made is the one that make bitcoins prefer than other form of payment and the  disadvantage of bitcoins been irreversible when transactions already happen is what makes me dislike it.

Transaction speed of Bitcoin is I think relatively low compared to other payment options and compared to other coins, speed is currenty sufficent, altough it needs to be improved in future, but I'm not concerned about it because the lightning network will do a great job to process more transactions per second.  Smiley

Advantages:

1. Send money to anyone from anywhere.
2. Decentralised i.e no local authority to impose tax or limits of transfer
3. Prices are always going up.
4. Quick and easy.

Disadvantages:

1. Not for people with less tech knowledge
2. Once you send your funds to a wrong address, you lose all your money as transactions are irreversible.
3. Price Volatile in nature.

Hope that helps.

I agree except number 3. Since 12/2017 Bitcoin price decreases.


Disadvantages:

1. Not for people with less tech knowledge
2. Once you send your funds to a wrong address, you lose all your money as transactions are irreversible.
3. Price Volatile in nature.

Hope that helps.
Number 2 and 3 are valid points but I think number 1 it's very easy to learn Bitcoin's use.  Wink

Thanks for sharing!

For me the advantage of being an early believer / adapter in bitcoin surely has already been reaping the benefits of bitcoin. If you're just a newcomer then I cannot say the same thing.

  • Early adopters, like users who have already purchased large quantities at very low prices, are already benefiting much more from the price increases.
You forget that early adopter did transactions in Bitcoin. They took risk , with their time and money and helped it in growing. AFAIK no early adopter has any stash of Bitcoin they always used it for doing transactions. ( Like purchasing 2 pizzas for 10000 BTC.)

Yeah, agree here, this point can also be seen as a neutral one, but many people don't feel comfortable having huge whales, also if it wasn't intentionally. But I understand you.

This is very helpful for novices. My point is that the advantage of Bitcoin is the free currency in the true sense. Can invest globally. Its disadvantage is that it is used by some illegal elements as a transaction. Such as arms, drugs.

Advantages: The real free currency in human history.
Disadvantages: Hesitation of freedom can not be controlled, all he can smuggle arms or drugs.

Bitcoin also have limited amount of coins. When they all will be mined blockchain won't work as I see.

For me the important advantage of bitcoin is you can exchange it to money and you can spend this money without any problem  from country  who don't accept bitcoin and the disadvantage of it is btc price can be low in any moment so your profit from bitcoin will be low

the biggest disadvantages for me are lack of regulations and uncertainty related to bitcoin, it is not backed by anything so it is very speculative and people think it is unreliable.

Main advantage is that you can send a transaction any time you want and no one can stop you from doing this.

There is this biggest benefit that people can't steal your payment information from merchants like how banks do.In banking transactions,they ask you information about your credit card,your name and the number.Whereas in Bitcoin there are two keys public key and private key.Public key is usually just your Bitcoin address and is always public whereas private key is secret.

I think the biggest advantage of it is the VOLATILITY of bitcoin i know that this is natural in bitcoin but the dips are getting lower and there are no increase in the price and also some disadvantage of bitcoin is the holders or the whales who are manipulating the market that's my opinion.
