It is a shame that Paypal treats all counterfeits the same.  In the instrument world counterfeits are common and part of history and are NOT to be destroyed.  A known counterfeit can be worth more then ten thousand dollars and be irreplaceable.

Bitcoin does not have any dispute resolution service so it's hard to compare.

neither does 'USD' have any dispute resolution service.

you're right though, Paypal is a transaction service, not a currency.

BTW - I have a genuine copy of The Shroud of Turin for sale if anybody is interested.

I found the comment above interesting. What if there were a The Shroud of Turing? It would look somewhat like the below with an image of Satoshi Nakamoto.

No, it is still there under 'more comments'.  Of course I had to allow javascript for the page as well to see it.
